V10 TDI sporadic "sluggish start"
I've done a bunch of searching and there are plenty of of threads about "long or slow cranking" issues. I am having a different issue that I couldn't seem to find anything posted about. The worst part is, the truck has not thrown any codes. It's a 2008 Touareg 2 V10 TDI. Every 3rd or 4th start regardless of a cold or warm motor, it will start very sluggishly. It cranks over but only has about half the normal idle RPM for about 5 seconds unlit it eventually wakes up and idles perfect. From that point on, it runs and drives perfectly. Battery voltage and CCA is all excellent. No codes present. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
