  3. Diesel cloud from under the fuel filter

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Hello Chaps. I am rebuilding the Treg after a crash, the engine is now in, and running, but after the engine has warmed up, a continous diesel smoke is pouring upwards from under the filter housing.

    Today the vehicle started and ran for about 1 minute, then the engine died. No check engine light. I heard a whining coming from the center console or rear seat area. Vehicle cranks and starts every time, but dies after 5-20 seconds of idling. If I wait one hour, it idles for 20 seconds...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hello, I have 2005 2REG V6 3.2. After I replaced the battery, fuel door/hatch release switches on driver door won't work!

  6. For Sale: V6 2004-2006 3.2L Touareg Main Fuel pump *used

    I changed my main fuel pump because my mechanic suspected that to be the issue with my car, turned out to be just the MAF sensor. So I have this pump I pulled out and of course I dont want to swap it back in but I figured it could save some money for someone who does need a main fuel pump...

    Hi I've a 2006 V6 diesel that's just turned 112000 miles. If I stop with the engine running for say 5 minutes then start off again I leave a cloud of grey smoke behind me. I've stopped to see what this smells like and it smells like unspent fuel. When I park after a short journey from cold...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hey guys, I was at my dealer today and quizzed the service guys on some additives - mainly for anti-gelling through our cold winters. They stated VW does not recommend fuel additives but the service guys sold me a bottle of Forte premium ULS Diesel Booster (1L Bottle for $22). The bottle states...
  9. 2004 V8 horrible drop in gas mileage!!! :(

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hello! So I've had this 2004 V8 for about a year now, maybe a little less. It used to be that I would get at least 360 miles to a tank if I drove with a lead foot, or up to 430 if I was light on the throttle and spent a lot of time on the freeway. Anyway, I can't seem to break 280 now, even if...
  10. 2004 3.2L Backfiring?

    Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Started two days ago. Drops cyclinders and I think it back fires at med-hard throttle. Seems to start at 2200 RPM and higher. Have replaced all spark plugs and coil packs. Thinking it maybe wiring to coil packs or fuel delivery. Parts dealer warned me about a fuel filter built in to the fuel...

  13. Fuel System Problem ?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    2004 V6 Treg will start and run for approx 10 sec. Then absolute dead stop. Turn the key off / back on / restart / same thing always. Now if this was a GM vehicle I would say fuel relay or fuel pump without a doubt. Not sure about the treg. Any ideas?
