Help me fix some ones boat.

Hi. I have had little experience with VW and even less with boats. But some how got involved with a Trophy boat that has a marinised VW 3.0L TDI that is apparently the same as the one out of a Taureg. It just cut out one day and now won't fire. Story is: No communication with controller 01 using VCD...

Re: VW Polo 2013 1.2 TSI Missfire on warm up setting codes

There is moderate carbon build up on the back of the intake valves. This, below, is on a FSI engine and was enough to cause the same symptoms. It's apparently a fairly common problem. Not one I often see as I'm in Oz. I only went down that road after everybody else had played parts darts and from e...

If you suspect battery, charge it and disconnect from auto. Check 2 days later.

This would suggest it is NOT a timing chain issue. Any clues?

Any help is much appreciated. Chris
"NOT", why not?

To me screams timing chain. Put the scope on hot and cold and you will see why. Look at how the tensioner works.

Re: Capcha

I have put so much effort into contributing on this forum with all the accompanying graphics to then waste my time with the capcha. I don't think pico have any idea how much it extinguishes enthusiasm. I can't be bothered any more with it, (picoscope) as there are no reliable channels to share our w...

Re: Nissan Micra CAM/CKP known good needed

Hi ,cam flop occurs on very new engines too. Don't need to have any worn parts (chain or gear). The oil pressure is just not enough at times, also at idle. However cam flop is not the cause of a no start. Hi. I'm aware cam flop can occur with new engines. A new chain almost eliminated that 'flop'. ...

Re: Nissan Micra CAM/CKP known good needed

The reason I posted was because landroverman1958 was describing what is considered a good Nissan 1,3,4,2 waveform should look like. What I wanted to point out was a bad waveform did not necessarily mean a bad cam, sensor or capture. It was as 'Speck' pointed out 'cam flop' that caused the odd patter...

Re: Nissan Micra CAM/CKP known good needed

My post was reply to landroverman1958 how claimed that CR14 1,4L (from first post) has same pattern as 1,2L he posted image about. We can arque what means identical engine but there are engines that are the same with same engine code but pattern changes in years. So if engine code is the same but c...
