Scirocco 1.4tsi (122) 3th gear power loss

Postby Warie936 » Mon Sep 02, 2019 5:53 pm

Hello everyone

I've got a 2012 scirocoo 1.4tsi. I have no idea whats wrong with it. 1st and second gear have normal power but in 3thd it has low power.

I read online that this could be a fuel filter problem. I hope it isn't a turbo failiure because the car hasn't even reached 60k km's.

Some further information of the car:
Ulter mufler
AP coilovers

First thing to do is have the car scanned to see what fault codes, if any, are stored as that may point you in the direction of the cause of the issue.

I am going to have the car scanned tomorow, the only gears with normal power are 1ste and second. All the rest it feels like a sort of limp mode. It is really weird. It feels like driving a car with 50 bhp.
