You have random misfire codes as well as misfires detected on cylinders #2 and #4. P0011 is likely the root cause of the misfire being detected P0011 VOLKSWAGEN - 'A' Camshaft Position Timing Over-Advanced Or System Performance problems.
Possible causes- Dirty engine oil - Low engine oil level - Camshaft actuator circuit open or shorted - Camshaft actuator circuit poor electrical connection - Faulty camshaft actuator
There may be a factory bulletin on this code, check with the VW dealer on that. Possible defective Camshaft actuator.
your spark plugs are not the ones recommended by factory i had a couple of experiences similar to it
and same brand of spark plugs but different vehicles. changing them to the factory recommended fixed them hope fully this is helpfull to you.
hi, this consumption seems high, i would take it to a dealer and ask them to check the oil sensor.......
P.S. is there a lot of smoke coming from the exhaust, if so, it may be burning a little oil, ask dealer to check it
It is probabley worn rings so the best thing to do is at next oil change get a can of V-8 formula engine restore it takes the place of about half a quart of oil I think to be exact I think the restore for a V-8 is a 15 ounce can.Try that at oil changes.
I had the same problem with my wife's 2006 passat turbo. We lost 2.5 quarts in 3000 miles and the warning light came on. They put us on a 1000 mile oil test and I lost 1.8 more quarts of oil. They finally agreed to replace the rings. Service tech told me that the factory rings are defective, they begin to lead after about 25,000.
First thing I would check is the electric thottle body to make sure the flap is not sticking. In 1.8T's the oil vapours from the turbo tend to build up causing a gummy film in the throttle body. If it is remove the 4 bolts holding it and the wire connector and clean it using a fine sctoch bright apd and some intake cleaner. Dry it off well, and make sure the gasket is still good.
Other things could be a basic setting after the clean which requires a scanner to do basically resetting the stop of the motor and adapting it to the car's computer.
