Re: Re: Re: [Syncro_T3_Australia] Re: Vanagon Syndrome solution on eBay

This happened on an old "car" (mine). Turn the engine off (give it a rest I suppose) and the "car" runs as normal (for a time).

Had I persevered in this way, then the problem would re-occur ad nauseum each time I drove the "car" (now that the issue has arisen for the first time).

Adding the AFM harness attachment fixed the problem ... end of story.

So I can only conclude there must be some significant difference between an add-on tantalum capacitor fix as opposed to the AFM harness attachment fix and as well, VW's theory on vanagon syndrome is out the window.

They happened on new cars. Many were fitted under warranty.
All you have to do is turn the engine off for ten minutes.
