After about a year of trying to figure out the problem with this car, I finally got it thoroughly scanned and received a P1779 code, an Engine Torque Input Malfunction. I was told that I would have to take my car back to the dealership in order to get the ECU reprogrammed and updated. Do I have to go to a dealership or can I go to a service shop? How much will this cost?
My headlight chime is not working when I leave my headlights on and I would like to fix it, but can't find it. It's not behind my glove box as I was told.
My car was running okay. One morning it started then turned off. When I tried to start it again, the car would not start. I was told that the fuel pump and the timing chain need to be replaced. Not sure what to do.
My car had trouble starting the other day. It was parked on a sloped driveway for about a week and when I tried starting it today, it took about 10-15 turns for it to finally start. I'm thinking maybe the car is low on oil. Could this have anything to do with the car being parked a slope?
Alright driving home last night went to put it in 3 rd gear so gave it a lil gas an it went an started sounding like a lawn mower and the rpms go up to 2 or 3000 on their own. Any ideas
try to find out
Long running problems with severe loss of power, esp going up hill. We had several cylinders misfiring, so have just replaced all the ignition wires and the coil pack, which we thought would be the answer. Things have improved slightly but we still lose power going uphill once the car has warmed up. Sometimes it feels like it is jolting into gear. Once power is slipping away it is impossible to get many revs. Also, it is erratic when starting up in the morning, sometimes it cuts out a few times first.
After replacing the wires and coil pack, we immediately got these codes on our ODBII scanner, for the first time - 17952 (P1544); 16505 (P0121); 00518 (P0121), which are all related to the throttle. We are confused as to why the current symptoms are similar - altho not as severe - as the symptoms we had before replacing the wires and coil pack, and yet we had not had these throttle codes on the scanner before. We are driving the van in Latin America, so it is not easy to get parts, nor to find mechanics who know anything about this model of VW. any tips hugely appreciated. thanks
