Hello everyone

So long as it's covered under warranty, leave it with them and ask them to keep it until they figure it out. They should contact you each day with an update as to its status (ideally), but you should call every other day if you don't hear from them. Ask them to share what they've done and what they intend to do next. They need a plan, they need to act on it, and they need to revise their plan until they finally get it all corrected.

If you don't have warranty, then you can explore some things that may help. Even though this refers to a 2016 1.5T, it could apply to yours: click to read about loose intake bolts.

How many miles or KM are on your car, and what else has been done to try to effect a solution?

There is also a bulletin for P1101 on both the 1.5 LFV and 2.0 LTG relating to a damaged or missing o-ring seal in the charge air cooler coupler. Should at least be checked. Also check the screw tightness and seal on the air filter box.

Bulletin PIP5402E
