    New mk6, multiple issues but I have faith,

    Hi all.
    Bought a mk6, manual, 2010 cavd twin charge 1.4L
    166klms

    Car has a few dramas. Need some brain power please.

    An engine shop told me that these engines need to be refilled as soon as you drain the oil as the timing chain tensioner loses pressure when the oil is drained.
    Can any one confirm or deny this?

    Also, can someone please tell me the location of the supercharger fuse?
    New Super gather clutch filled in Feb, but no power getting to it.

    There are more dramas, but I am working on those slowly

    -matt.

    Ohhh have fun with that mate. You are a brave man to have bought one of the 1.4 twincharge engines.

    1st i've ever heard of any VW engine needing to have its oil drained and refilled within a short space of time. The only "common folk" car with this restriction is the Ford Ranger/Mazda BT50 which has to have its oil drained and refilled within 8 mins I think otherwise the oil pump freaks out.

    My 2011 Golf R never had this issue, my 2010 Golf GTI never had this issue and my current car 2015 Audi SQ5 does not have this issue.

    This may be of some help with your supercharger issue: Limp mode + Blown fuse

    Thanks mate I'll check out the fuses.

    Does anyone have a workshop manual? I got a hose that has been blocked off but can not find the other side.

    Pay for manuals?
    Surely you can get the whole thing as a PDF for free somewhere.

    Thank you for the support with the manual.

    Just started a new job after losing my old one so I had to buy a car, low on funds, trying to save every dollar.

    Thanks guys. New mk6, multiple issues but I have faith,


    Can anyone tell me if this engine has a pcv valve?
    And where it is?

    If you spend $10 on the manual, you'll know.
