      Todd is correct about the diaphragm and pressure numbers.

      I had a '77 Scirocco with this problem. It was resolved by clearing the holes inside that metal diaphragm. The return line hole was...

      Thank you all. Intermittent grounding had occurred to me and been cleaned/made redundant.

      Repair/Service manual?

      Greetings!

      Is there an adequate service/repair manual for the 2015 Tig yet? Is there such a thing, or will all be subscription-based online offerings?

      I had a 1988 Scirocco 16v for 12-1/2 years. IIRC, that crack was considered 'no big problem' unless it cracked the seat insert.

      Have you checked the ground to the ignition coil pack? This has been known to cause some oddball problems.

      There was a TSB on this for the AZG and maybe the AVH engines.

      The solution for me was...

      Disable auto locking

      I've just acquired a 2015 Tiguan TSI.

      I'd like to turn the auto locking 'feature' off. By this I mean the doors locking at 7MPH.

      My guess:

      Poor oil flow due to clogged passages or filter is causing restricted flow to valve lifters. Collapsed lifters don't open valves sufficiently, and the excess cam/lifter clearance causes...
