First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

Default Welcome to Volkswagen Forum - Rules & Recommendations

You need to check for water ingress. You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing.

Hi Keith,

I didn't realize that. I am inquiring for my son. He has no interest in cars, so I thought I would lend a hand. I will see if can get the error codes
