I recently had my injectors replaced/upgraded and I'm past the "break-in" period and seem to need an IQ or timing adjustment.

The car sputs and stutters for 30 seconds to a minute in the morning. Along with lots of smoke. If anyone near Appleton, WI could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

I have a key2 vag com cable that you could use. I don't know enough to make any changes myself but you are more than welcome to come and use it, but I live in Kohler so I am not exactly close.

It is most likely IQ adjustment needed. So you would need to drive a ways as the car needs to be hot when doing the adjustments.

PM me with contact info if you'd like. I will likely be driving from Madison to Oshkosh for a Monday 1:30 appointment just off the Hwy 76 exit off of 41 and might be able to help you out.

Don't know about timing, but can definitely adjust IQ. - Pat

It boggles my mind my local indy VW shop is clueless how to adjust the IQ or deal with upgraded injector adjustment...

We got it sorted out.

Bad glow plug relay. IQ was fine @ 4.1

Just no GP's running for the last 10 starts. Hence the sputtering on cold starts. You can tell the timing was spot on at 67 or it wouldn't have started in the cold.
