Any fix for Kangarooging

Post by Thomas2019 » Wed Feb 13, 2019 5:18 pm


Has anybody got a hopeful answer from the dealer about "Kangarooging" problem of 1.5 TSI?

Any idea about the fix?

Thank You

VAG are 'working on a fix' Don't hold your breath!
It appears to affect mainly manual cars. My DSG is not affected.
Many Kodiaq 1.5 owners are jumping up and down about this problem.
I reckon it needs a tweak to the ECU that controls the mixture when cold. (what used to be the 'choke')
When you start off, try putting in neutral an 'blipping' the throttle that will dump more fuel into the system and may ease the problem until . the VAG boffins get off their fat a*ses and sort themselves out
