I had the same issue. The air intake manifolds have a recall. The arm sticks in open position this causing an incorrect air ratio which in turn makes your car lose power and possibly stall. You may want to check that first.

Also yes. I had to change a coil too.

This just happened to me a few minutes ago. Any resolution with your car problems? If so, what did you have to do?


This exact thing has happened to me.. any resolutions from anyone? grpack1, did the intake manifold recall solve the issue for you?


Yes it did. VW North America paid for the warranty work due to the recall and changed out the entire manifold.

Thanks so much for the quick reply! I have scheduled an appointment with my dealer and they have confirmed the same. They also mentioned there is a "clock spring" and "computer" recall warranty as well. Might be helpful to anyone else on this thread. Thanks again!
