    Whats happening to my car?

    Mk5 GTI stage 1 (08) FSI engine...only does this at cold start. Some people mentioned PCV valve but I just did that less than a year ago. https://packaged-media.redd.it/ghjq3q5uoyvb1/pb/m2-res_1280p.mp4?m=DASHPlaylist.mpd&v=1&e=1698102000&s=e716b1621427eb366c664c1df818d71b2c9f8dcd#t=0 Thoughts?

    What would cause a car to rev high when starting and immediately fall down?

    Video example here My mk5 gti (stage 1 APPR) did this two times yesterday upon startup. The second time the battery light came on. Just put a new battery in it less than 6 months ago, but my mechanic did instal defoulers bc my O2sensors kept going out. Could it be the alternator or maybe a...

    Changed the upstream O2 sensor (mechanic thinks it’s the downstream now) but the other 4 codes popped up

    Turned out it was the DV! After the tune it must've gone out. Car runs perfect now!

    Thanks, I will ask. Having the mechanic check the N75 and DV as well. He owns 4 gtis so I trust him completely.

    Changed the upstream O2 sensor (mechanic thinks it’s the downstream now) but the other 4 codes popped up

    This helps! Would the smoke test from last time show this? The same code is pooping up so I can assume its the dipstick holder? But its such a small area to set off that code...we are checking the wastegate and the n75 sensor as well

    Changed the upstream O2 sensor (mechanic thinks it’s the downstream now) but the other 4 codes popped up

    Last time he did a smoke test and said it was <1 psi of air that was coming from the dipstick which needs to be replaced (the suction is gone). Could that possibly be it? Can you explain what you mean by "They are all Lambda based which is reported by the B1S1 O2 sensor that was replaced?" A few...

    Changed the upstream O2 sensor (mechanic thinks it’s the downstream now) but the other 4 codes popped up

    Any idea why these last 4 faults are showing up? Mechanic is booked up and very far and I'm not sure how urgent this is

    Somethings up with my O2 sensor

    Turbo underboost is a shadow code for the O2 sensor (from my mechanic) but that was just done in January- brand new. Any ideas what this could be/ why it’s happening. He asked me about my CAT which has never been replaced. The last time this CEL came on was almost 3 weeks ago, I cleared it and...

    How S.O.L am I if I cant find any record of a DSG service?

    08 MK5 GTI. I've had it for a couple years but JUST found out now that it needs and DSG service every 60k or so. It's at 104k and I cant find any service records from the previous owner and I've never done it. I dont drive hard at all, just took it to stage 1 about a month ago and I'd say i...

    Started the car (mk5 GTI fsi) this came up....

    I guess you will find out soon enough, some of those Dtc need two drive cycles before they turn the Mil on. Welp, it just came back on (08825- Intake Air System). Its the only code. Mechanic thinks it may be intake manifold, vacuume seal or boost leak :(

    A CEL came on yesterday, 2nd start of the day. I cleared the codes this morning and nothing as come on yet...

    Started the car (mk5 GTI fsi) this came up....

    I recently replaced the intake manifold (july of 2022 approx) along with the other stuff that was causing the CEL prior...but now this is coming up. Mechanic thinks VW (who did the intake manifold) used crappy parts...could this just be a blip? He suggested I clear the codes and see what...

    Cam follower- is it possible for it to go out in a month??

    Thats all i wanted to make sure of. They claim to be an elite specialty shop for European cars and labour costs are $185USD+ per hour

    Cam follower- is it possible for it to go out in a month??

    If you've been following this mess I was in you'll know the stress around this and not getting any answers. Drove 2.5 hours away bc i was told repeatedly by this specialty shop near me that my cam followers were fine. Last checked on December 9th. I had them replaced on Jan 12 and the look like...

    P2195 code after going to Stage 1; new cam followers, fixed <1 psi leak, new O2 sensor but still need a new dipstick (small leak from there)

    This is the code I got. Any ideas why this could be happening? Mechanic says it could be bc its adjusting to stage 1 (after running rich for a very long time). I'm kinda at my wits end...any help would be appreciated!

    If the mechanic you go to thinks this is fine for a cam follower...go to another mechanic

    This "specialty" shop; one that told me i needed a new turbo for $4k on an 08 gti for a underboost (turned out to be a <1 psi leak from MISSING CLIPS), told me they had checked my cam followers and that everything was good. At the time i was driving it and how long it had been driven..i didnt...
