2012 vw cc wont start

Asked by May 27, 2018 at 09:55 AM about the 2012 Volkswagen CC 2.0T Lux FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2012 vw cc is not starting. Yesterday while driving, it
randomly began shaking very slightly and then smoke
came out of the exhaust. My EPC light came on and the
engine light started flashing. I pulled over to check it out,
when i tried to turn on the car again it would try to start
but didnt. The battery is new and so are my spark plugs
so im not sure what happened. This all happened right
after i went to get put some gas in the car. Does anyone
have any ideas?

Hoping this is not a head gasket issue. Is there any coolant left in the system? Would check the oil level too.

Mine did this and it was bad coil packs. Dealership service department charges under $300 to have all of them replaced. They said the car stops itself as a safety precaution. You can replace your own for less. Not difficult.

It's your timing chain
