2016 TDI misses at low RPMs

Anyone seen this before? Only has happened a couple times running around 35mph with low rpms. Just a quick sharp miss sensation which might happen 2-3 times then stop. Thanks

Are you getting a CEL or just "feeling" it?

Nope nothing just a miss or two then goes back to normal. I bought it with 40k miles and now have 51k on it. Itís done it twice now in the last 400 miles.

Have you scanned it to see if there is evidence of an actual engine miss-fire?

Maintenance history? Has the Fuel filter been changed? A clogged filter would exhibit power losses but typically at higher RPM's.

Does iddle ok when cold?
Mine did not and it turned out that the butterfly valve prior to the intake runners was badly covered in soot. However, at that time my T had 100.000km on the clock and I was the second owner.

Does it feel like a surging movement during acceleration? I am in the process of getting my Touareg examined for a P004A Turbo CEL fault. I think the electric driven actuator on the turbo has a bad ground or is defective. I witnessed it “searching” or moving up and down rapidly but couldn’t get it to repeat on video. If this occurs during acceleration it would cause fluctuations in boost, causing surging. Any experts out there care to chime in?

This is the only symptom I had before the HPFP imploded very minor "missing" at low speed. No faults on numerous scans. First step is to change the fuel filter. For the well being of your wallet hope that is the issue and not the fuel pump system.

Check your intake manifold. Mine was pretty plugged at 74km. Dealer replaced under warranty.
