I am fairly new to the VW world so I would appreciate any and all help... On my way home from Tampa this weekend my car started bucking almost like it was cutting fuel, I pulled over checked the codes and there was a P1128 which I think was the MAF. I unplugged it and it seemed to go away figured I needed a new MAF but was going to replace this weekend. Well I have not replaced it yet but it started again yesterday and I checked the codes and what I got was below

P0102
P0112
P1128
P0300
P0303
P0302
P1300

Thinking that I may have a bad injector not certain, but I have a VAG-COM cable on its way so I can diagnose better. I fear that it may not make it before I get the cable and need to get it fixed. Any kind of info would be helpful.

Thank You

Start by cleaning the MAF and replacing the spark plugs with NGK BKUR6ET-10, if that doesn't work... then most likely new MAF.

Ok so whats the best way to clean the MAF, and would it cause the misfires in Cyl 2/3?

Thanks and glad to be here on vortex.
MAF cleaner or electrical cleaner from any auto supply store, there are many DIYs on the internet on how to do it, pretty much you remove the maf housing and spray it down with cleaner, dont touch anything in it and just let it dry and re-install... and bad MAF readings will provoke misfires.

Ok... so I cleaned the MAF and plugs.... still misfires on an off. I did find some vacuum leaks so I will try to finish fixing them Monday. I have to get a hose (no freakin clue what its called) from the dealer, the local auto parts don't carry.

Not sure if the MAF is good or not, it misfires and when I unplug the MAF it still misfires doesn't get any better. So does that mean my MAF is not working?

You should change your spark plugs as well while your at it. They dont cost alot and could make things run alot smoother. :thumbup:
