Mk5 Golf - Jetta - Eos / Re: MK5 GTI - DSG vs Manual
« Last post by Altom14 on July 27, 2017, 10:13:34 pm »
I've been lurking around here for a while. And finally brought myself a mk5 GTi. I have always preferred manuals over autos, that was until I drove a VW with DSG, i just love it.

Yes extremely hard to get hold of now, I have 4 on mine and one spare, good reason not to drive it too much.

Or four! Could be pretty old too. Thought worth a mention as no longer available.

Mk5 Golf - Jetta - Eos / 1.4TSI Not accelerating
« Last post by Hughbugger on July 27, 2017, 06:01:46 pm »

Hello,

For the last month or so my 2008 (82km,DSG) Single charged 1.4 tsi has been having some acceleration issues. When under moderate to heavy acceleration the engine will rev fine upto 2800-3000rpm then will stay at that rev range followed by a complete throttle cut for a split second, it then will be back on boost and pulling fine from 3500rpm onward. It does a similar thing cruising in 7th when going up a hill and I apply more accelerator. The engine will drop to around 1500rpm, dump all its boost and then the engine power will cut fully for ~half a second, after this it will downshift then continue to be fine. Really strange and super difficult to explain. The symptoms seem to be under high load scenarios. When in tiptronic the issue never seems to happen if you keep it in the 3000rpm + range. The transmission also starts off and shifts fine with everyday driving.

I have had it VCDS scanned and nothing showed up apart from a transmission code from ~ 30k km ago. The car has been working fine since so maybe it was something to do with the dsg service which was done at that time.  (Possibly used as some way of recording the dsg service on the ecu?)

I have also checked the sparks and coilpacks. No loose connections and the spark plugs seem to be looking clean. I took photos of them when I had them out. The sparks were replaced for factory spec NGK at 60km when I had a full service (Gearbox, Engine oil, filters etc).

Sorry for the essay but any help would be great as I am lost on what could be the issue. I have looked a fair bit online but not a lot of information on the single charged 1.4tsis. Seems to be the twin-charged models getting all the attention :P

Hope you get the sound you are after
My Legacy sounded like this. Quiet when cruising but let you know that there was something going on when you gave it some stick.

Love the 3.0R, almost got one before discovering the joys of German cars, otherwise would be in a modded 3.0R now. Planned to do headers, exhaust, intake and remap...apprently good for around 210KW of NA goodness (gain of 30kw over stock, and same as a stock 2L turbo manual)

living on the shore, driving in the mornings on the motorway I see a lot of model s' on the road and few model x as well (seen that white one few times now)

saw an alfa romeo 4c on the bridge the other day, looks very sporty in red - speaking of which, the quatro foglio mama mia or whatever its called, the v6 twin turbo $130k model - I haven't seen a single one on the roads, has anyone seen it? sales must be terrible..

Guilia Quadrifoglio? I have seen a few of them, maybe 5? They sound amazing in the flesh.

Magnaflow sounds nice

Agree, caters for the deeper sporty end of the sound spectrum...sounds nice, but it runs the whole rpm range, in that regards I think the factory system is great in that it covers a full range from deep sporty burbling sound under load in mid range rpm and that roaring\screaming\raspy sound at high rpm....just needs a little more noise at low rpm and a bit of a sound increase across the board to make it heard a little more.
