Hello...welcome and thank you for using Justanswer.

The 300's codes are for engine misfiring ,the code P0171 is a lean code ,the engine is running with the wrong mix(air/fuel)

The most common problem for the lean code is a vacuum leak,i would check for any broken/disconnected vacuum hoses.

The Mass Air flow sensor is another possible problem that sets the P0171 and also can create this misfiring codes.

The fuel pressure or poor quality gas (water in the gas) is another possibility.

Do you feel the engine running rough ?

Have you try to clear the codes and drive the vehicle again to see what codes comeback?

Good luck.

Let me know.

Thank you very much.

I just cleared the codes tonight, it idles very rough and the check engine light starts flashes
VW Mechanic: I. Silva, VW Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, so you do have a misfire ,can you read the codes to see what comes up first?

This is the 4 cylinder engine right ?

Let me know.

Thank you.

This is a 1.8 turbo. Havent had a chance to drive it yet.(to cold to be stranded). I have noticed that when i start it cold it doesn't come up on high idle.
VW Mechanic: I. Silva, VW Technician replied 2 years ago

Hi there...sorry for the wait.

Scan the engine again to see what codes came back, if you have just 1 or two misfiring codes ,swap the coil from the bad cylinder with another cylinder that is working.

Clear the codes and run the engine again, if the code changes to the cylinder you put the possible bad coil ....you know you need a new coil , if it stays as the same code...check the spark plug, if good...you will need a new ignition module , located on passenger side by the air filter box,it has two connectors to it and is secured with two screws.

Good luck.

Let me know.

Thank you very much.

It was a broken vacumn T under the intake manifold.
VW Mechanic: I. Silva, VW Technician replied 2 years ago

Hi there, I am glad you fix the problem.

Like I said on my first post ,the P0171 is for lean code and the most common for lean code is a vacuum leak , it must be a pretty large vacuum leak to make the engine misfire that bad.

Please rate my answer if I have helped, positive rates are really appreciated and do help the techs at this site.

Thank you very much.
