2.0tsi p0343, p0172 & epc

Postby Andy b » Sat Oct 05, 2019 8:22 pm

My 2012 2.0tsi with 80,000 miles has thrown up these codes

It’s been having starting issues, taking a while to fire up

Occasionally throwing up a p0172 code & epc light, the epc light goes off after a short time

This has been ongoing for a couple of months

Now it’s thrown up a p0343 code on startup

I’ve googled the codes and the p0343 worries me as I’m concerned it’s not the sensor or wiring causing the issue & it’s possible it’s the timing that’s out

Obviously it’s off to the garage ASAP, but Sod’s law I’m on holiday and really could do with using the car

What’s the forum’s thoughts on what’s going on with my car?

Its with the garage so best place for it really. Better off waiting for them to diagnose instead of us all guessing
