  1. MKV GTI
    So I bought a used 2006 GLI. I am posting this in a GTI forum because there is not that much activity on the GLI forums and I figured that the engine is the same so there's not a big difference. The GLI has 80000 miles on it and is burning through oil really fast. It is also throwing a P0008...
  2. MKVI GTI
    Hapy New Year! Lets get down to it. 2010 Gti, 69.9K miles, No mods (except R8 coils and K&N drop in air filter) Just changed the plugs, coils, and oil about 4K ago after I seafoamed the car. And that fixed my misfire code... for a few thousand miles. But it came back with a vengeance, and...
  3. MKV GTI
    The ol' MKV had a rough time starting this morning and then the blinking CEL came on with a rough idle. This went away after about 15 seconds and it drove fine. I'm thinking I should maybe replace the plugs and coil packs. I think it was done 40k miles ago @ 100k but I'm not sure. Should I...
  4. MKV GTI
    Hello! 2006 GTI FSI No mods So the other morning it was -16 degrees outside. I let the GTI warm up for about 20 minutes before driving to work. On my way out, as I accelerated through the gears, I felt the engine "buck" a little bit and the boost/acceleration was extremely sluggish. After...
  5. MKIV GTI
    These codes are coming up, the car was running really slow previously but got the Turbo Intake hose replaced, now the car runs great..but my CEL is still on. Engine: AWW 16487 - Mass Air FlowSensor (G70) P0103 0 35-10 - Signal too High - Intermittent 17705 - Pressure Drop between Turbo and...
  6. MKIV GTI
    Ok so I went ahead and bought my first new vw I've owned a few older vw bugs. I have an 02 golf gti 1.8t I just purchased from a local here in vermont. I got it for a pretty good price so I thought. I noticed it had a few boost leaks before purchasing it......commen for boosted cars. Anyways...
  7. MKV GTI
    So I have on '07, APR stage 1. I have had a CEL for an underboost code for a while now but the car has never gone into limp mode. Out of curiosity, I installed a boost gauge to see exactly how low I am and I max out at around 10 psi. I'm not hearing any weird sounds or anything, and the car...
  8. 1.8 / 1.8T Engines
    I'm posting this for my boyfriend because his computer is broken and his GTI needs some help! So here's what is going on... His 2002 GTI 1.8T has a blue cloud of smoke that comes out of the exhaust while the car is driving but only when the car is in boost/high RPMs. There is no smoke when the...
  9. MKV GTI
    So my 2006GTI was throwing an EVAP code. The dealer ran diagnostics and told me it was the purge valve. He offered to fix it for $250 but I'd rather do it myself (even though I already paid $90 for the diagnostics, F'in robbery). I didn't see any DIY posted, can anyone help me? I'm definitely...

  16. MKV GTI
    My MkV Hisses constantly under throttle with no release sound. Also lost power. I cannot find any obvious leaks. Originally, I was Registering the CEL for MAF and P0299 (Underboost). I've replaced the MAF sensor, relieving me of the first CEL. I was hoping a DV swap would help as stated above...
  17. MKV GTI
    I'm a newbie- but I'ave had my 2009 GTI 2.0 for a year and a half. Currently has 42k on it. Throttle body was replaced last year under warranty. Have had the issues with rough starts for the last 6 months or so. Recently, the check engine light came on, took it to my own mechanic and found...
  18. 2.0T FSI / TSI Engines
    So, the other night I had my airbox off to check some things out, getting ready to do the cam follower and install a catch can, and when I put things back together I forgot to hook up the MAF. The next morning I started the car and drove several miles, kind of slow because it was a cold morning...
  19. MKV GTI
    Hey guys Ever since I got my a/c replaced, my cel has been on. *Cleared the codes a couple times, but I keep getting P0238 - manifold pressure too high. I also feel that when I slowly ease onto the throttle, once I get past a certain point, the car just starts to accelerate way more then normal...
  20. MKIII GTI
    Hey guys, I'm a new MK3 GTI owner. I bought the car about 3 months ago with 95k on it and every thing worked fine until recently. My check engine light came on about 4 days ago. I looked around the engine but didn't see anything wrong. I drove it for a couple of days and nothing seemed wrong...
