Update:

Temps have dropped in Columbus OH.

Last night I raised one side of my car to switch to winter tires and heard what sounded like a water leak. Thought is was odd until I thought of my drain hose. Sure enough I checked and water ran out onto my metal drip pan on the garage floor. It was a substantial enough volume to hear dripping into the pan, at least several tablespoons worth.

So glad I have that simple tiny hole. Works as I expected. It is a really good feeling to see that water come out rather than stay in the system, potentially causing hydro-lock.

For the few of us keeping our TDI's, I highly recommend this simple trick.

Like winter or not, here it comes!

Ok...it appears that my engine is Hydrolocked. T-belt checked. Engine can not be turned by hand. This all happened during starting on a warming day (50F) after a evening in the 20s.

How do I unlock? Pull the glow plugs?

I have tried rotating the engine from the crankshaft. It would not move either direction.

milleraw,

Check out this video. Yes, he pulls the glow plugs. Also, he drains the intercooler. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Teyq-EdC_s

Good luck, please let us know how everything works out.

Wow! That was crazy scary...I went from engine is F'd to it runs fine in 5 minutes. Was warm enough today to remove the plugs and crank the engine over. Also pulled the bottom cover and drained the lowest IC hose. It now has a 1/8" hole in it as well. This will not happen again. Car needs to make it to February for buyback.

When I see posts like this is reminds me how glad I am that I have my weep hole in mine, I still see water on the ground from time to time. Better on the ground than in my plumbing or cylinders!

So mine went down today. Ran for a brief second and died. I've already drained the 2+ cups of water from the IC hose. Now I can't get these damn plastic glow plug bungs off....

My wife's car ran rough and died on her before Christmas. She was sitting in fairly heavy traffic but no one hit her. Thank goodness. She was able to restart after a few minutes and no issues since then. This is the first stall on either of our cars. Her's goes back to VW the end of Feb, so hope no more issues.

Not sure if it has been mentioned yet, but the work outlined on the technical bulletin is covered under the extended warranty that comes with the emissions fix (or at least it is on my 2012 Golf w/ manual transmission). Worth looking into for those of you who kept your cars. With the current cold snap, right now is a good time to drive the car 30-40 minutes before dropping it off at the dealership. They will pull the IC lines off, look for water/ice and will most definitely find it....

Default Hard start and VW upgrade 11/2017

My 2011 manual Jetta Sportswagen had 2 fluid locks from the intercooler that I survived with luck and ignorance. Later, I cut the intercooler hose and inserted a machined aluminum pipe spacer with a 1/4" drain valve screwed into it, operated manually following long drives in cold moist weather. I would get some dribbling out, never a large flow. The VW emissions upgrade was performed in November 2017 with a noticeable decrease in mpg in temperatures below 50 F. When warm, I get about 42 MPG. My wife's car is a 2013 TDI DSG which never had an intercooler fluid collection issue. Her mileage took a 10 MPG drop in cold weather, but gets up to 42 MPG over long trips and warmer temperatures. Looking back, I would drill the 1/8" hole for winter use and plug it with a hose clamp for summer use, or just let the air bleed full time. Thanks for the info on this issue.

My wife also had a 2013 TDI (GSW, bought back by VW June 27th), 6-sp manual. Never had an intercooler condensate issue with hers either, but my 2011's issues were never fixed even after applying the technical service bulletin. I always wondered what was different between 2011s and 2013s.
