Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks
I have been experiencing the following problems with my VW Tiguan: 1. Slight hesitation and rough idling 2. Water and Carbon deposits coming out of exhaust 3. Burns an insane amount of gas Did a diagnostic. Mechanic says Oxygen sensor has error code. Mechanic also noticed upper gasket seals need replacing. Would these problems be solved by the above repairs? Need to know if I should fix it or just get rid of it. I would be very grateful for any advice.

My problem was solved when I repaired my 4 wd activation dash switch. The switch was contacting on 2WD & 4HI at the same time. The front differential activation is vacuum activated possibly creating a tug of war that didn't actually engage it but drained off vacuum from the engine? A theory at best but stumbbled across it because I knew the switch wasn't working properly I repaired it and low and behold rough idle disappeared and all is good for 3 weeks running.

Honestly it is not very expensive to replace, but it is not extremely important. What it does is measure the oxygen/fuel level coming out of the engine. This tells the computer that the engine is either using the right air/fuel mixture or allows the computer to change the mixture slightly to allow the car to run properly. You could pull the sensor out and clean the terminal as it usually has alot of carbon build up due to its location, but this is normally a temporary fix. I hope this helps you with your problem.
