    Question 2011 TDI Sportwagen with P0401 and P240F codes

    Hi,

    I have a 2011 TDI Sportwagen with P0401 and P240F codes. The first began intermittently (for several months) but in the last several weeks the MIL seems to stay on all the time. The second code came more recently. When the code was on-again/off-again, I didn't take it too seriously.

    The radio stopped working; an after market radio was installed. The car has not been modified in connection with Dieselgate. We have had the car since it was new in October 2010.

    First, how long can I drive the car before problems get more serious? (There do not seem to be any driveability issues at this time. I haven't noticed any changes in mileage either.)

    Second, how could I go about narrowing the problem?

    The Ross-Tech P0401 page suggests three options: a wiring fault, a clogged/malfunctioning valve, and a clogged system (tube?). Will the second code help locate the fault? I have not been able to locate further information on that code. Would it help to drive around logging the EGR data for a while? And, if it would, what would I be looking for?

    Third, how should I go about fixing the problem once I've narrowed it as much as possible?

    How might I address each of the three options? Would I just wiggle the connectors or is there a specialized test that I have missed. (There is a fault mentioned towards the end of the autoscan "Address 4F: Centr. Electr. II (J520) Labels:. 1K0-907-532.clb" but this has never shown up as a code before the autoscan. Is this a clue?

    If I do need to clean the EGR system and/or replace the valve, is there any way to know what needs to be done beforehand (so I can order the parts) or is it a matter of finding out once it is disassembled?

    Where would I look for good directions on removal, cleaning, and replacement? I've seen youtubes and posts but, taken together, there isn't much clarity. Specifically, would the intake manifold need to be removed and would components behind the engine need to be dealt with? Looking at some of the forum posts, it seems that sometimes the wrong things get done and the right things don't get done. (If you send me to the resources mentioned elsewhere that is OK.)

    Thank you.

    You might want to see about having the car updated, might be covered under extended warranty once completed.

    Thank you for the reply. I didn't find the e-mail notice until today. Sorry for the tardy reply. The message raises more questions.

    First, since you didn't say anything about driving, does this mean I can drive the car indefinitely without worry about damage to the engine or exhaust system?

    Second, is locating the problem a random search through the possibilities or does the information generated help locate the problem or do I need to perform further tests? In particular, I'd want to narrow the choices down, if possible, between electrical and mechanical, and between the front of the engine and the back. I've seen both referred to. I've also seen discussions of diesel particulate filters and catalytic converters in connection with the same basic code (including on the Ross-Tech forum). Sometimes the answer from Ross-Tech is to leave that stuff alone before it is damaged.

    Third, wouldn't I want to know exactly what is wrong with the car and whether the problem is covered by warranty before I go anywhere near the dealer? Given that Volkswagen was lying about the engine being a clean diesel and that they decided that I did not qualify for settlement payment, I probably don't want to trust them very much. Given that it is often difficult to get dealers to honor warranties, I probably want to know for certain whether the repair is covered also.

    Thank you.

    Steve
