Known Problems

The 2009-2017 Volkswagen CC uses the TSI engine which is subject to carbon buildup causing power loss, check engine light, and a rough idle. In normal vehicles, the engine is cleaned by gasoline flowing through, however, the Volkswagen CC uses direct injection so gasoline does not flow through common carbon buildup areas. 

Possible engine codes include: P0300P0301P0302P0303P0304.

The solution is to remove the intake manifold and professionally clean the intake manifold, intake ports on the cylinder head, and the intake valves. This may need to be done in as few as 20,000 miles. 

Condensation may develop in the heater case which can cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system.  Our technicians tell us the drain system should be checked for debris. In addition, a cleaner is available for the heater case.
