So I have an 09 VW Jetta and the lights that are on - the engine management, the DPF and the Glow Plug light is flashing constantly.
When I drive the car there is no turbo, and the revs only go to just under 3000rpm and doesnt go any higher.
My mechanic said I need to take the car for a very long drive with the revs at around 3000rpm and it will clear it - the only thing is, when the glow plug is flashing it won't go any higher than that and it doesn't
I took it back to the garage and they said that it will clear once its had a blow out, but it isn't working. Does anyone have any ideas on what can be done?? other than setting fire to the dam thing!!!!
One of the problems VW is having with the TDI's is the intake manifold becoming carbon fouled. If this is your situation, it will not go away by driving and will continue to worsen. I can't say that this is your problem for sure, but you might have it looked into and get an estimate as it is a very labor intense procedure.
