I have 2000 VW jetta gls 2.0 and im getting DTC code p1582

Found this on the vw forums:
I've had the p1582 code for a couple weeks now no other codes just the one. My car was getting poor gas mileage and performance suffered a little, but not too significant. I've done the basics (cleaning tb, reseting tps, cleaning maf) to try and clear it, but nothing helped. So what should I do now? sly.gif
The p1582 from my understanding means, that the computers limit to adapt to my idle's air fuel ratiohas been reached. So at idle my engine is running too rich or too lean for my computer to keep up with. I took a look at my short term and long term fuel trims to find that my engine was running very rich at idle, knowing that I need to solve the problem before my cat is damaged and I would have to buy a new one.
Ok so what would cause a rich mixture at idle only and only give me one code? Well since I only had one code I assumed all my comprehensive components were fine, so I moved on to looking for vacuum leaks.
At idle the throttle should be closed and no air should be getting into the engine causing a large amount of vacuum or an absence of ambient pressure (outside air). So this means "unmetered" air is getting into my engine with the throttle closed, causing my computer to try to adapt to all this air by leaving the injectors on longer adding more fuel.
Okay, so where is all this air coming from?
I tried my best to find any possible vacuum leaks in the engine bay, but finding vacuum leaks isn't my speciality. So one of my buds who owns a shop said he would hook up a smoker to it. These smokers are amazing which is why they cost 3,500 or more, not too many people have access to these. We disconnected the brake boosterhose from the throttle bodyand attached the smoker hose to the vacuum port, turned the smoker on and watched........ was no smoke coming out of any unusual areas of the engine bay. So at this point I'm getting kinda frustrated, until I noticed smoke coming from the passenger side of the car infront of the rear tire. We lifted the car and there it is a huge leak in my evap system. The leak was about three or four holes punched into a plastic vacuum line, yup plastic banghead.gif, coming from my fuel tank to the evap purge valve. I cut the hose and added a rubber hoseto connect the two ends that were cut and bam! no more vacuum leak. After three consecutive trips the code was cleared.
Now I'm not saying this is the solution to any p1582 problem, you might get another code thats paired with the p1582 and that would be helpful because it can tell you which specific sub system is causing the p1582.
In my case i only had the one code which isn't very specific because the vacuum leak didn't cause any components to send abnormal inputs to my computer until the computer could no longer keep up with the engines air/fuel mixture at idle.
I hope this was helpful to at least one person, if you have any air/fuel problems that might be the cause of a vacuum leak I would definitely check out those plastic vacuum hosesthat are UNDER the car EXPOSED to the HAZARDS of the road. biggrin.gif

Why is engine light on ?

The 506, 171, and 1582 codes could be due to carbon buildup in the throttle body. Use throttle body cleaner to remove the carbon build up and retset codes. The 0440 code is the evap system code. This is usually a loose or worn out fuel cap.

Hello i have a 2001 beetle and it is now at 95k miles but before it reached that mileage i had more then a few problems with it... back in 2009 my check engine light came on took it to the dealer and they...

Without knowing the specific codes associated the illuminated check engine light, it would be imprudent to comment on possible causes. At this juncture, your best bet may well be to let the dealer have another crack at it.

I have a 1998 buick regal it has been recently tuned up was getting very good gas mileage and runnin well now it is burning more change in performance and no engine light codes

Good gas mileage on this car should be 19City 27Hwy. Gas mileage can be affected by many things. Assuming that the car has been recently tuned as you have indicated, I would: Check tire pressure first<-you'd be surprised what low tire pressure can do. Check for low oil level <-engine friction Cheap spark plugs. Let me know.

99 volkswagen beetle 2.0 engine problem

Cat is usually damaged from vehicle misfiring, Those codes you posted are a MAF, idle control, and 02 sensor codes. The MAF sensor could be reading incorectly causing the car to run rich or lean, and giving the 02 sensors bad readings, i would deffinetly look into the MASS Air Flow sensor, which is located on the intake tuping near the airbox

You can also try cleaning it with MAF sensor cleaner

check yahoo for code list and then dig from there start from begining and not just a random code
air in is first exhaust is last
work from begining to end

check each code put them in order then follow each code checking the source

1998 vw beetle codes p0411 and p1128

P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected
The 4mm inside diameter vaccuum hose gets pinched between the lower intake manifold and the secondary air pump housing, flattening it over time.
Here's a link to the steps to fix yourself if you are mechanically inclined...

P1128 Long Term Fuel Trim Is Too Lean
It is very likely this code is coming up because of the vacuum hose as well.
