Failed VW intake Manifold

Hi Everybody,(I hope you said, ‘Hi Dr. Nick’)

Today we are continuing the Tuesday episodes where we look at a failed VW or Audi part. This is like the podcast and Shop Shots piled into one. The response to last weeks show about failed VW 2.0t water pumps was awesome. I am thrilled that you guys like these shows. So be sure to remember that Tuesdays are failed part analysis days.

Remember that if I ever bring someone on as an official sponsor, that is a PERSONAL endorsement by me, as well as my advisory counsel.

How VW 2.0t TSI Intake Manifolds Fail
Today we are looking at the intake manifold for the CCTA 2.0T engine. This is a rather common repair that we do at the dealer. It fails in a few ways. There is also a warranty extension on SOME of the 2.0t engines for the intake manifold. Be sure to contact your local dealer to see if your VW qualifies.

Up next in the How To series with Deutsche Auto Parts is, replacing a VW Intake manifold and fuel injector. This is a great video that will teach you everything you need to know about replacing a bad intake manifold, or fuel injector. Also if you plan on inspecting your Volkswagen for carbon build up, this video shows you what to look for.

If you are not replacing either a intake or injector, skip to about 20 minutes to see what carbon build up on the intake valves looks like. You can also skip to about 27 minutes and see what a clogged fuel injector looks like.

Thanks again to the boys at Deutsche Auto Parts for having me out. Be sure to subscribe to their YouTube channel and follow them on Facebook. Be on the lookout for more VW how to videos from Humble Mechanic and Deutsche Auto Parts

Join me today as we look at some ways the CCTA intake manifolds fail. This is not only an VW issue, but an Audi issue as well. It has been well documented that many cars even get multiple manifolds replaced. Since this video came out, VW has updated the 2.0t TSI intake manifold. It how has a metal control arm, and a few other changes. I did a video about it if you want to learn more.
