Hello all,
If anybody has any questions I am more than happy to answer and clarify for anyone that emails. You can email me from the blog that Baldeagle provided. I have worked on the FSI 2.0 issue in depth as a technical advisor for BG and 7 years with Audi helps with that.

I'm glad you got it taken care of under warranty!

i loved that BG stuff back in the 90's. Used it on all my cars. And my first private shop I worked at starting at age 15 used it exclusively.

An extremely informative webinar at The link provided by Bald-eagle.

Seems like there is more maintenance required than a 10K oil change.

Please help me with VWoA Complaint regarding Carbon build up.

My car is at 44K and the dealer wont cover the cleaning ( $600).
Can you PM me with details on how you got VWoA to cover?

Thanks!

Can carbon build up can cause CEL ?

I have to go to dealership because mine is ON right now. Everything's fine, no error display, power is good, and gas cap is fine (non-modded car).

Since they change the mechatronic, the car goes fine, but there was a CEL before the Mecha.

It was ok for couple of days, and the CEL came on. It came off couple of days after...etc... Now it seems on all the time.

I wonder if it could be carbon build-up ? My GF now works in town, so she drives only in urban area during the week...

Thanks,

Highly unlikely it is carbon buildup. Possibly intake manifold. At least it was in my case. Car operated fine but was throwing codes.

u all talking about IV drip cleaning service.. Sounds pretty same as seafoam but with different solution. Why dont you try seafoam drip first urself. I and many other have done it without any issues. some are against it and some are for it. Do ur research as there is plenty of information regarding.

you need to drive aggressively to prevent carbon build up. high RPM removes the carbon.

Not so much the RPM but the temperature. Running hot will help the burn off the cake-on stuff(think self-cleaning oven). Running it high load normally also will reduce the build up formation as it has less unburnt carbon in the exhaust...

The "Italian tune up" doesn't prevent all carbon buildup on our DI engines. Check out this thread for more info: http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/showthread.php?p=146579

Toyota's solution is to use 2 injectors per cylinder one direct and one port, they call it D4-S.

Without injecting gas before the valves, there isn't much you can do to prevent this. I'm sure these car manufacturers have tried everything and the best they can come up with is a complex and (probably expensive) dual injection system.

Best thing to do is just accept a valve cleaning as part of regular maintenance (like a DSG service).

This- as its only a matter of when, not if you will need to have the valves manually cleaned completely. 45-60k miles or 4-6 yrs.

I hope my car picks up a nasty misfire before it's out of warranty so I can send it back to have the service done.
