Disadvantages of the VW APF engine
- This is a reliable motor with a high resource and breakdowns happen at high mileage.
- The reason for the drop in power is usually the fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator.
- The culprits of unstable operation are often air leaks or mass air flow sensor failures.
- The mechanism for changing the intake geometry is also distinguished by low reliability.
- Closer to 200,000 km, oil consumption often appears due to wear of rings and caps.
