After much effort and time to get the Tiguan back up and running I finally had a nice day on my day off to go for a cruise. Stopped at the cooling towers for a quick pic and back on the road again. Feels good to drive my own car again.
So on Feb. 20th I took my Tiguan in because it had misfires in all 4 cylinders and lean codes I couldnt diagnose. After 1 week, they changed all 4 coils, plugs, and did extensive tests. They said all was good and I came to get it. In the parking lot it got misfire and lean codes just like before so I walked back and told them its still messed up. 2 weeks later and even more
One day after getting my Tiguan back a sizeable oil puddle appeared on my driveway. It's been tracked down to the rear main seal. So hopefully that also was part of the misfires/rough idle and finally the poor VW will be back to fighting shape again. It's been non stop problems since Thanksgiving with this car.

I still can't figure out why when I cold start the engine idles super rough and I get misfire codes in all 4 cylinders and a lean code. It feels like it's on the verge of dying unless I keep the RPMs up until it warms up or is driving. Then all
Still recovering from the last day of 2017. Everything is replaced but other odd problems have cropped up. (That aren't from the accident) Why this engine keeps giving me issues is beyond me. Darn VW. heh
