'07 V6 Gas lopey idle issue
Ran in to my first issue with my new to me '07 Touareg V6. I noticed today that it has started to have a bit of a lopey idle, fluttering/loping between 650-700 RPM. More noticeable in Park/Neutral, not under load. It is audible in Drive while stationary, but *barely* registers on the tach.
Runs, drives and starts just fine. No CEL. I haven't played with anything yet, I've been a VAG enthusiast for years and have played with older VR6's in the past (mostly 12V).
Planning on wiggling/checking the coil packs and see what it has for plugs tomorrow - peek around the engine bay. I've owned it for about 3 weeks and put 1100 miles on it including a successful trip up to the mountains.
Kind of a quick brainstorming thread, please chime in if you've had a similar experience! Thanks!
