Disadvantages of the VW CHPA engine
- In the first place is the problem of the oil burner, especially for engines until 2013;
- This is followed by a breakdown of the thrust of the wastegate actuator due to its souring-jamming;
- Also, often inexperienced craftsmen damage the ignition coils when replacing candles;
- On a run of 100,000 km, an expensive pump with two thermostats often leaks;
- The remaining complaints are associated with a long warm-up and extraneous noise-knocks.
