The doc he referenced didn't look like a TSB. It would be nice if it was.

If it isn't too much work to get at that valve it would be interesting to just clean/flush the valve to see if it fixes the issue even if only temporarily.

Sometimes oilhammer can find these TSBs if it has risen to that level.

Long thread on similar (same?) issue on mk7. Kerma reports that this MAY in some cases be an air purge of the hpfp. Oops, later in the thread he decides the issue is more likely to be vvt related.

Wow, amazing video and super mechanic!

But also funny for me. I think my worst crank times are like when the car is fixed in the video. My car typically starts immediately, except in the morning it takes about as long as the fixed version in the video. Maybe I'm just too picky.

It really is interesting to know that a drop in oil pressure in the VVT affects the timing and can affect the crank time. With no fault codes and if it doesn't get worse for me, I'm going to let this go now. It's just nice to know it's probably related to oil pressure in the VVT and not fuel pressure.

Thank you for finding the video!
