I have read this has happened to some other vw Tiguan owners. The diagnostics are expensive and don't guarantee results. Noted and put in coolant sealer to try stopping leak. I understand now that this is a common problem with this make and model of engine from Volkswagen. Dip your pinky finger into some new oil and lubricate the rubber o-ring gasket on the new oil filter. Slide the used oil catch container to just below the oil drain bolt. This started with the mileage between 46,500 and 47,000.
Turns out Coolant Pump broken. We are now coming up on the 40k. I can¿T afford almost 8 thousand for new engine as well as labor costs. I think it just automatically pops up every 5K. As far as oil and such goes just check what kind of oil they use and price it out wherever you get your oil changes done.
Are you leasing or buying? But that's just my opinion. He expects a class action to emerge in the future. Wear and poor design is my conclusion for this recurring problem. Vehicle has 64,000 miles and all factory recommended services have been completed at the dealership s. Also things like oil changes cost more. If I new that the Tiguan had such a defect, I wouldn't have bought it in the first place! Can provide repair report from dealer first repair and second once it is finalized.

It seemed fine after that, but I took it to dealer. On Monday, August 21st, I get a call back from the dealership saying that the issue is with the timing chain tensioning system. The contact stated that the engine would not immediately start. Removing the oil filler cap and lifting up the dipstick handle will help prevent a vacuum from forming and also allow the old oil to drain out more quickly. The 10k, 20k and 30k scheduled service intervals were included with the purchase. If you have any questions you can always contact one of our Volkswagen technician representatives at our service department. Make sure the rubber o-ring from the old filter is not still attached to the engine.
Insert an automotive funnel into the oil filler hole. Note this was already replaced at 40k. This represents a safety issue that may cause a fire or eventually engine to fail. Said it was a vacuum problem. The basic maintenance items will likely cost the same amount as any other car, if it's more it will be negligibly more. This failure was related to the previous repair of the fuel injector rail accord. I would only use a stop leak product in an old winter beater type car where you dont care about it and plan on getting rid of it soon.
Which one is good if it helps? May 14th, 2010 7:30 pmthere is no precision to a german built car. Adequate quantity of fluid for filter change. Also the cam cover and transfer case found to be seeping.

Also, will it actually be just a gasket or valve leaks, that costs much less to fix? For most Volkswagens, you can wrap an old belt around the oil filter and unscrew it by hand. Spin in the oil drain bolt a few turns in the clockwise direction by hand to prevent it from becoming cross threaded. After 10K you are only supposed to change it every 10K, so your next change should not have been until 20K. . The old oil might still be hot enough to burn your fingers depending on how long you warmed up the engine. . No signs or anything prior that the car needed servicing.
