Major issues with my Volkswagen Caddy SDi

Postby LC Auto Clean » Tue Sep 23, 2014 8:14 pm

Evening all, some of you may know that I have been having some issues with my 2006 Caddy SDi.

Its been missfire at idle and poor starting. So far its had a £50 injector wiring loom, £250 injector and a £20 seal kit and its still broken. Going into another garage this coming Friday as the tech thinks another injector has gone down or one one hasn't been fitted correctly. We did at first think the cylinder head was worn out but the fault has been intermittent so hopefully ruled that out. Hopefully saving me 2k on a top end rebuild. Will keep you all updated

Saw your posts on FB regarding this Luke.

Seems like your stuck between a rock and a hard place with this van.

I don't doubt that your confidence in the vehicle has been severely dented now.

Hope you can get sorted without too much more expense

If I'm honest I have been thinking about that but I will need more than just a complete engine! Sure I will need loom, clocks, ECU and key. Lot of work to be honest :(

Cheers Chris. Yes well stuck with it though its been a great van up to now and if I'm honest I would have another on and just make sure I buy a TDi next time as they seem to be bullet proof :)

*Update* The caddy went into another garage for a second oppinion.

They replaced all the injector seals, swapped injectors 2 & 3 around,stretch bolts that hold them in place, stretch bolts that hold the rocker rail in place. So far so good! The reason for swapping injectors 2 & 3 around is because if the missfire returns we can tell for sure what the issue is. If its cylinder 3 it will need a new injector but if the missfire returns to cylinder 2 its a complete new cylinder head.

Got everything crossed that it won't return :)
