Question about Cars & Trucks
If your vehicle is fitted with a diesel particulate filter which is not to be confused with an ordinary catalytic convertor it will need to have what is known as a regeneration on a motorway or dual carriageway in third or fourth gear drive at a constant speed of 50-80 kph keeping your rpm between 2350-3000 for approx. ten to fifteen minutes this tells the ecu to pre inject fuel and post inject fuel to make your exhaust gases hotter to burn out all the deposits in your diesel particulate filter if you don't have a dpf
you may need a new catalytic convertor
or you can buy a solution that you add to your fuel to clean them out but find out if you have a dpf first because if you don't you need the solution for cleaner emissions if you do you need the solution for your dpf to burn hotter
hope this helps

when the glow plug light keeps flashing.Thats telling you that you have a fault with one of the sensors.Take it to a garage and get it checked out with a diagnostic scan.

check to see if your brake lights are working.usually the stop light switch fails and is the cause.but before buying a new one check the stop light fuse.its a common problem with a simple fix.hope this helps.

this is a common problem for these cars glow plugs go bad like spark plugs however the smoke would lead to bad mass airflow meter. it is not telling ecu corrcet miss. disconnect mass airflow meter. when cold see if this makes it start better. it should would means you need new m.a.f. glow plug issue take a test light place clamp on positive of battery then pull off glow plug connectors place tip of test light on glow plug the bad one will have a dull light unlike the good one which will be brighter. will need new plugs and wire harness four **** connectors and wire striper and crimper will fix concern good luck

Despite what you may read from other comments....The glow plug light is
simple a multi function warning light and IS among many othed
things in fact used to warn of brake light and brake light switch
failure. Therefore it can NOT be treated as glow plug problems only.
I have worked on V.W for many years and have encountered this problem many times. You should get the OBD codes read. This will reveal the exact problem...and there may be more than one
You can contact your V,W agents if you wish and check to see if I am correct.
Best of luck
