Default Rough idle on cold start up

Hi all:

VW New Beetle, 2001 1.8T, manual.

I have a rough idle for about 20-30 seconds cold. It often sounds like a consistent one cylinder miss with an intermittent rolling miss. I have the Ross Tech VAG 1551/1552 and pull the random misfire code (16684) and 16687, 16685 & 16686 individualcyl misfire codes.Although I have ocassionally seen these codes before, there were no drivability problems. This current situation started the other day with abad #3 coil over pack that failed creating real drivability problems; I traced back all wiring into the harness repairing any broken insulation (numerous), confirmed voltages on all coilover pack connectors and pulse from the ECU, replaced plugs and the #3 coil (confirmed bad). All of the problem was resolved except a cold start miss (never happened before). After the initial warm up period, 20-30 seconds, the car runs perfectly in all driving conditions and throws no codes. My O2 sensors are reading fine but I'm always suspicious of sensors over 80K mi (car has 98K). I hear no vacuum leaks and all hoses seem fine. Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Uppi

Default RE: Rough idle on cold start up

Hey, I have the exact same car, and same year, but I have 60K miles.... I have never had that prob. but I can tell you that it might have something to do with the MAP and MAS sensor,..... I have had a my bug for 3 months now, and the only prob. I have had was that just on the thanksgiving, my turbo blew up.... but with the rough idle,.... you crank sensor, could be a lil off, and your MAS sensor could see that its colder than it really is, and telling the computer to give it more fuil. I have a stage 1 MAS, and a Stage 1 Turbo going in it today, and a new After market Exhaust system, and when I put the stage 1 MAS in, at first it had a rough idle, but that was because the computer was not used to seing such new numbers..... but look at the MAS, and MAP, ( Map is located on intercooler, just behind the right turn signal on the bumper, just incase you weren't sure). so just look at those two, and I hope that I have given you so idea of what to look for. good luck, and I hope you can fix the problem...

Hello Erica. I like a girl that can work on her car. Well, it could be a lot of things. If you want to clean out the MAF make sure you only use electronic cleaner or they make MAF cleaner. If you could explain the problem with a little more detail, maybe we can get it narrowed down.

Don't forget the possibility of a bad o2 sensor..ive read it in hypertech.com that bad o2 sensors can cause idling problems..
