T1 V6 Cranks, but won't fire... Your thoughts?
So I got a call from my mom after work Monday. She said her Touareg wouldn't start.
It's got a newer battery and I just replaced the driver's side fuel pump last month, so I was thinking that maybe the passenger side kicked the bucket too. It does have just under 100k miles, FYI...
So when I got to the Touareg, I ran a quick scan and got these two codes:
P2279 - Leak in Air Intake System
P0327 - Knock Sensor 1 (G61) Signal too Low
At first, I kind of ignored them. I figured the knock sensor, if bad, shouldn't affect the start of the engine. It should only cause it to run rough. And a leak, at least as first thought, again would cause it to run rough, but run nonetheless.
I checked out both pumps, just to make sure. Both pumps were running when attempting to start. After checking out some of the forum posts, some were saying maybe the PCV valve is bad. But would that cause a no start situation??
Let me know what you guys think... I'd like to try and get it figured out ASAP, without having to tow it.
