  2. MKV GTI
    So under WOT, my boost peaks around 20-21 psi. The other day it started going up to around 23 psi, but when it did so, the engine started to misfire and the CEL started flashing. I did it a couple of times to make sure it wasn't just a fluke, and the CEL stayed on after the 3rd time. I got it...
  3. MKV GTI
    I have a misfire on cylinder 3 and I've already tried new coil packs and plugs so I'm moving onto swapping out the fuel injectors. I've looked around on the web but I only found some general photos, nothing too descriptive. Is there a solid DIY on installing new fuel injectors? I really don't...
  4. MKV GTI
    Hey guys I own a 2009 GTI 2 door with 65k miles on it. The other day I was a little street hungry and raced a mazda rx-8. Needless to say I left him in the dust, however about 20 seconds after we stopped racing my car started to shake and the display flashed "Engine fault, Workshop!" I barely...
  5. 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...
  6. 1.8 / 1.8T Engines
    I have a 06 VW GTI 1.8T that I've been having some issues with as far as the P300 codes. All four continually pop up every week. I've changed the spark plugs, coil packs, and just got a oil change and changed the fuel filter. I just went to get my yearly inspection and failed for emissions. The...
  7. MKV GTI
    I have a 2008 GTI (APR Stage I, 94000 miles) with all stock hardware under the hood. After my car is sitting in the driveway over night, starting my car causes it to make a frightening knocking noise that lasts for five seconds before stuttering and then finally calming down. If my car sits...
  8. MKV GTI
    2006 New GTI Recently the check engine light popped on and the code I pulled was for a "Cylinder 2 Misfire". I brought it to my mechanic and just switched out the plug and coil pack on that cylinder. I can still feel the engine misfire when I start it up in the morning but it's not...
  9. MKV GTI
    I am NOT a gearhead, as much as I wish I was at least. Anyway, my check engine light came on and I pulled the code for "Cylinder 2 misfire". I cleared it and it didn't come on again for another week. So now it's on and I need/should do something ...anyone had this before? common in GTIs...
  10. MKIV GTI
    I have a MKIV GTI 1.8T that I'm having issues with surge/misfire. Problem has been there for a while now but is getting worse. It's not a constant problem it comes and goes. No codes what so ever. At steady rpm it seems to miss fire and when coming to a stop sometimes it feels like it wants...
  11. MKV GTI
    I read my engine light and it coded a cylinder 3 misfire, i swapped my coil from 3 to 2 and the misfire didn't follow. So with it not being the coil, i've read around that possible issues could be spark plugs or pcv valve. has anyone else had any issues like this? Thanks, Jake
  12. MKV GTI
    December 9th, I noticed minor hiccups when slowly accelerating in second or third gear, perhaps from 2000 to 3000 rpms. My brother (the knowledgeable individual of the family) and I were not able to identify the problem, so we waited until the issue graduated to a more noticeable state. Two...
