I have a 2011 VW GTi with about 120k miles.
10k miles ago, driving down the highway, the engine lost a considerable amount of power and it wouldn’t restart. Diagnosis was a stuck fuel injector (#4), that was replaced.
This week, I had a similar loss of power. The EPC light came on. It would start, but it ran rough. Limped in to the dealership (dios mio!) and now fuel injector #1 is stuck.
Is this a common problem on VW GTIs? Is there something causing the issue?
The first time it happened, I figured it was a one off… now I’m wondering if it’s something more systematic.
Currently, I’ve got an extended warranty covering most of the repair. But if this is going to be a recurring problem, I may not keep the car after that expires.
Appreciate the help.
