2011 Volkswagen Tiguan power issues

Asked by Jul 10, 2019 at 10:07 AM about the 2011 Volkswagen GTI 2.0T 4-Door FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan.  A couple months ago my water pump
broke causing all of the coolant in the car to spill out the bottom as soon as it
was filled.  We had a friend replace it for the price of the part but after that
the car had some new problems. The EPC and check engine lights are on
and when you turn the key the car turns over a few times before it starts.
Sometimes this takes up to 8 seconds before starting.  Also, it has a really
hard time accelerating and loses power fast when going up any incline.  I
replaced the camshaft position sensor but that didn't seem to fix it. Now, it is
also flashing the red oil light whenever the car is parked or stopped. WHAT
IS HAPPENING?!
