Question about 2010 Volkswagen Routan
After punching accelerator, white smoke was coming out from under hood. Temperature gauge was normal but engine was wet on top. Is this dangerous ?
Sounds like you have a coolant leak. Best action is to get an experienced mechanic to find what's leaking. No mater what you do be sure to keep the coolant full or engine damage will occur.

Appearently Mr Lube is either going to end up fixing your car. I dont know what could have happend other than maybe they put the wrong type of oil back in it. I would definately get ahold of some of the higher ups at Mr Lube and "Ensure" they put your car back the way it was when it arrived there. There is no purely coincidence about it. They were the last ones to touch it. They will be the first ones to fix it. Make sure you are very firm with them, and keep track of names/dates/events as this important if you need to consult an attorney because of their negligence. Hope this gives you some direction, Thanks for using FixYa!

these cars are fitted with a fly by wire accelerator pedal that is controlled electronically by the cars computer it is possible that there is a computer problem or the throttle body ( air intake system )or accelerator pedal is playing up.
it is highly possible that the car is doing exactly what you say it is i recommend you take it back to VW and demand that they take a proper look at it you might have to leve it with them for a couple of days and get a service advisor to drive it home so as they can see the problem ocure.
regardles the cars computer should of thrown a code declaring a fault in the system witch should give the tecs some were to start looking.
good luck with this problem if you have any outher questions let me no

Are you loosing power to the ecu when the car is shut down? most cars with an ECU that controls timing, fuel, or boost can be forced to relearn the car if the ECU looses power (called a "limp" mode). I'd look into this. Also are you getting any check engine lights? considering the description of the problem, this would help to diagnose. Try getting the car started and running normally, then turn the car off but do not kill the power to the car, just stop the motor from running...Fire the engine back up and try to give the car a good stomp on the gas and see if you get the same sluggish problems...my 2 cents... Good luck future auto DIY's

check and clean your air idle control servo motor usualy located on or right next to the throutle body. check your map sensor also. the iac. is bad about getting gummed up and sticking closed or wide open, check that your air breather tubing is hooked up good no cracks or tears. could be messing with your mas air flow sensor which plays a major role in air fuel mixture and computer controled temp sensor could be failing it acts like an automatic choke. a scanner could help you out alot if you can have a local shop scan it.
