      Greetings.
      2004 Beetle
      BEV 2.0 liter
      6 spd auto
      Check engine light. Code: P2187?. Vehicle runs and starts normally. Quick check shows
      no noticable vacuum leaks. Clearing code and restating will trip light at around 185 degrees F. and low rpm about 20 mph road speed.
      Any ideas, common failures or direction I can follow???

      Thanks
      Chuck

      18619/P2187/008583 - Bank 1; System too Lean at Idle
      Possible Causes

      * Injectors leak/blocked
      * Air Intake Leak (after MAF)
      * Exhaust Leak

      Possible Solutions

      * Check Mass Air Flow Sensor (G70)
      * Check Injector(s)
      * Check Fuel Pump
      * Check Activated Charcoal Filter (EVAP) System Solenoid Valve 1 (N80)


      That's the info on that code. Though you said the car is running fine? With a MAF problem and the like, you should notice some differences in drivability I would imagine.
