    CEL cyl 3 misfire P030300

    Are CELs stored even after clearing the code via obd? I cleared the code the code to get rid of the CEL to see if it would come back. Dealer says light needs to be present in order for them to investigate. I was under the assumption the code is still stored somewhere in the system

    CEL cyl 3 misfire P030300

    same code as before. cyl 3 misfire intermittent and only at startup. my best guess is it's an injector issue. to the stealership she goes again

    CEL cyl 3 misfire P030300

    Picked the car back up today. Powertrain warranty covered the $175 diagnostic fee and they added whatever additive in too without me having to pay a dime. Car seems to be driving really well now (not sure if it's placebo or what). No CEL since driving it multiple times today. Fingers crossed...

    CEL cyl 3 misfire P030300

    Tech got back: cylinder walls were fine and no compression/leakage issues. Misfires are sporadic and tech recommends adding a fuel additive and clearing the code. Is that a long term solution? Kind of at a lost for what to do here lol. I'm APR stage 1 high torque 91 octane tune and regularly get...

    CEL cyl 3 misfire P030300

    An unfortunate update: CEL came back on tonight at start up after driving around most of the day. Will be taking into dealership tomorrow since I don't have the time to diagnose and fix myself. Hoping that powertrain warranty will cover

    CEL cyl 3 misfire P030300

    So update: I don't think it's an injector issue. The car drives perfectly fine with normal MPG, steady RPMs, and no misfires under load. The misfires are intermittent and has only happened the few times at startup. Did some live testing with the OBD connected to try to see if I can log any...

    CEL cyl 3 misfire P030300

    I'll run a compression test this weekend. That would determine if it's an injector issue? I've never dealt with these type of issues before so it's new knowledge I'm taking in lol

    CEL cyl 3 misfire P030300

    The plug honestly looked fine. I didn't see anything wrong with it as it looked like the other plugs. I checked grounding using that method and didn't find anything wrong as well :/. I did schedule an appointment at the stealership next Tuesday in the case that I have not figured out the issue

    Trusted Audio shop or dealer that can install Helix Soundbox? (Portland, OR)

    https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/index.php?threads/found-the-cheapest-helix-subwoofer-000051419b-currently.364504/ I ordered from there. After getting the tools, it took me around 3-4 hours to install if I remember correctly and $30 to get it programmed at the dealership. I DIY'd with 0...

    Hatch weather seal sticking together causing leaks during rain

    Roger that. What do you recommend cleaning the weatherstripping with so it doesn't look shiny? I've never treated it with anything. I think it's shiny because of soap leaking onto it and drying when I was the car.

    Thanks! I'll give this a try and see if I can solve it before if I find out if warranty covers it next Tuesday!
