ENGINE EMISSIONS POTENTIAL PROBLEM

Post by Jonblue » Sun Sep 20, 2020 8:04 am

I am not having much luck at the moment as a new problem has since arisen with an orange warning engine/emissions sign showing on dash. Have booked car into garage tomorrow. Have recently noticed that my MPG is poor compared to many on this forum and put it down to frequent short journeys. Also notice fuel marks on drive when reversing from exhaust but I had this with my old Audi so not sure if normal. Hope nothing too serious and covered by warranty as car has only done just over 3000 miles!

As I started to read your post I initially thought sensor failure, but if your mpg is poor that indicates a problem. Will be interesting to see what they find. I'm just coming up to 3,000 miles with mostly short trips due to lock down and checked today and my long term is 47.2 with the DSG, so more than happy with that. Hope all gets sorted 🤞

Thanks, might well be relevant 👍 I am due my first service very soon, and will definitely ask the question.

Strange, the emissions orange warning light disappeared the day I was due to go to garage so cancelled booking. Car due a service end of month so will ask a few pertinent questions then.

I'd suggest you get an OBDeleven and check the error codes / history of the various services ( this is what they're doing at the garage )

That recall notice says ALL of the 1.0 TSI engined VW cars, including the T-cross are to be recalled due to faulty injectors..! So, most of us are affected.!

I just sent a email to my dealer asking about this recall.
I'm in Australia here... which last time I checked was part of the world.
I have a T-Cross Style (Australian version) in Energetic orange. 3cylinder DSG.
We call it Harvey.

Checked a few weeks ago while my Tig was in for a service, it's only certain batches, our 2020 cross was not needing this.

Australia - there is a recall issued in August for the 1.0 tsi in the Polo models 'available for sale' through to March 2020. Nothing listed (yet) for the T-Cross - possibly this was resolved at the factory before the model was launched here.
