Some issues we have found whilst servicing these cars include
- Engine carbon build up due to exhaust gas recirculation
- Smell from build up of bacteria in air conditioning evaporater
- Oil filter housing leaking oil and coolant
- VW offered a smaller 1.4 turbo or twin charged engine to cut fuel economy and emissions. These engine were boosted to over 1.5 bar which caused early engines to crack pistons
- Timing chain and tensioner noise on start up, which can result in engine damage beyond repair
- Camshaft adjuster failing. Also causes rattle on start up
- Supercharger clutches failing. This runs off the water pump
- Coolant leaks from the re-circulating water pump
- Engine blowing black smoke on acceleration
- Rear tailshaft (kardan shaft) broken mount causing vibration during acceleration
- Engine burning excessive oil due to lack of servicing
- Water pump leaking at 80,000kms. It is essential this is replaced with the timing belt
- Engine oil consumption due to long service intervals, the oil level needs to be checked monthly at a minimum and changed regularly
- Central locking actuators failing
