What could cause #2 cylinder to misfire on a 2010 vw Tiguan.
Bad coil or plug,or even may be a bad fuel injector.
Sometimes a broken breather valve causes misfire in the 2.0T, too.
The car runs fine, the engine light is on and a diagnostic machine at advanced auto says it is a misfire.
If car run,s fine as you say,the ECM,may be holding and old code and need,s resetting.
Reset the light and see if it returns.
Have the coil packs checked i have seen alot of coil packs go faulty in the second cylinder on these tiguans I actuly jsut recently answered a question regarding the same issue and turned out his coil pack was bad.
Could be an early sign that cylinder 2 is badly damaged and you might have to recondition engine. This is what happened to me recently. It sounds like a common problem with the TSI engines. I am wondering if there are claim against VW for such problems? My costs is about R63000 ($6000) repair work.
here is a photo. VW quoted me a new engine. The engine price was more then I paid for the car?
Hi guys, I have a similar problem of misfire, took the car in and they reckon they found out Cylinder 4 misfires, what can you advise I do...
Take the coil out of 4 and stick it into 5 and see if 5 starts missfiring If it does replace the coil thats faulty
Actually that was done and still misfiring. Sorry It is a Tauran 1.4TSI.
The problem of misfiring on my VW Tauran is more in the morning when I start the Engine. The car shakes more during this time and them get better as the engine heats up. Please advise cause.
have you tried replacing the spark plugs ? when were they last changed?. also check your wires leading to the coil for signs of ware and tear. I would get some plastic line covers and put them on each of the wires to the coils. It reduces chances of spark off the wires threw the insulation to near metal points. Its one thing i constantly battle during damp weather especialy when i used to drive my safari. During the night and when it was damp you got a preaty light show with the dog house off.
Actually I have a vw touran fsi and it has a similar problem to noel's. The car at cold start every morning it misfires and sounds like pistons are hitting the cylinder head like 4 to 5 times as the car warms up then it stops. Plugs are very new. What is the issue
if you have been reading the posts most of them indicate either a coil issue or a bad cylinder. This is a comman issue with most tiguans and it makes me wonder why they have not fixed the issue and have not been sued by tons of people yet for the garbage they put in these things.
Coils, injector, or sadly haldex coupling
Bad coil, just replace the plugs and Coils. All my German cars have had this issue. My Audi A4, Passat and Tiguan. Not a big deal.
I have 60000 km on my Tiguan with the same problem on number 2. I reseted that one and working well for now. I did the VW oficial 60000 km maintenance with sparks plug changed at 58000 km.
