Anyone have a diy for this? Which adapter did you use? Can’t seem to find one for the 1.4. Starting to get misfires at 165k miles. Already tried new coils and plugs. Exactly the same. Thanks

Every year..... using a spray intake valve cleaner product via intake tubes
Keep the injectors clean with PEA based cleaner twice a year


If you have a serious problem on a vehicle with no maintenance and 165k miles, then you need to pull the intake manifold off and scrub away

I have 180,000 miles. Stealership is not helpful. Thought someone must have done this by now. Guess I’m wrong. It is what it is.
Thanks

Just use an intake cleaning spray. I wouldn't bother with media blasting. It was just a method to charge owners too much and make the shop money.

180K miles on your 1.4 TSI? Have you had the timing belt replaced? If so, at what milage and where was the work performed. Thanks!

Vw calls for first inspection at 150k miles. Every 20k after that. Save your money. It’s over $1000 to have this timing belt done. Waste of money to do it when not needed.

I'll see what my thoughts are when the time comes and more 1.4's have over 100K miles. What is interesting is for the 2019+ model years VW took away and recommendation for inspecting the belt. There is no mention of it at all.
