Yeah just did it once yesterday...hmm so it's done that since the line was replaced?
mine just stumbles between 800-1,000 for a few seconds (needle moving up and down) then stabilizes at 800, haven't had any prolonged cranking starts yet...
just frustrating still, after 200 bucks in parts, no improvement
gotta live with it i guess, glad i bought a 'new' car a few years ago..
Who did you get that information from? Weight of the fuel?I am having the same problems as you guys. Rough starts and stalls sometimes. Mine is a 2010 also. What a coincidence. But I'm a 6 speed. I have had people tell me that the 2010 is very picky to the weight of the fuel for some reason. He also told me that they offered a ECU reflash for 2010 model years but I asked my dealer and they don't know anything.
Some TDI group on Facebook. And yeah, the specific gravity of the fuel. Some fuel is more dense than others apparently.Who did you get that information from? Weight of the fuel?
mine did this today, entered a regen, as i slowed to enter the gate to my work the needle was 'searching' between 800 - 1,000 for it's stable regen RPM, then as i came to a stop it completely stalled out on me, started back up and the regen RPM was stable but the idle felt roughUpdate again: I started the car tonight (cold engine) and it was hiccuping pretty rough. I drove about 3/4 of a mile then it started to do a regen cycle. On a cold engine. Is that possible? Also rpm raised to 1000 idling and was stuttering pretty bad. Had to give it a little throttle for it to stop stuttering. (about 1200 rpm). After it warmed up to normal temp, all was good and ran very smooth.
Yes i was driving all city that day but usually I hit the highway everyday.It will do it when the engine is cold if it hasn't been able to do it for long enough. Have you been making lots of short trips recently?
A contribution fault is probably going to be a bad injector, low compression, or a cam/valve issue on that particular cylinder. This will be the first I've heard of such a problem on a commonrail... eager to hear what this turns out to be.My car threw a code today, finally. P0263 for Cylinder #1 Contribution Fault. It's scheduled to go into the dealer next week. I'm kind of glad it happened, at least it gives some sort of route to take. I'm thinking it's going to either be a bad injector or glow plug, so we'll see what they say.
Yeah and injector was my first guess with this. I'd also consider a bad glow plug since the pressure sensor is internal to that and possibly a faulty pressure sensor could be throwing off readings for that cylinder. My oil was analyzed just a couple of thousand miles ago and everything was good so I don't suspect any abnormal cam wear.A contribution fault is probably going to be a bad injector, low compression, or a cam/valve issue on that particular cylinder.
