Where is this info from?

Ive had two GTD's...2014 and 2015 MY16 model years and both did it...the newer one more often.

I still have a 2.0 150 TDI Mk3 Skoda Octavia which Ive had from brand new and it slow starts quite a bit and has done from new.....its 2 and a bit years old with nearly 31k miles on the clock now...annoying but it always starts and goes like a rocket for a 150hp diesel car (its lighter than the GTD so barely slower though handles like shit) so cant foresee there being much wrong with it.

Its been checked at two services also and no issues raised.

Got back off of several days hols where it had been sat on my driveway and it took maybe 7-8 seconds to start first off but it did start.

I actually think its a characteristic of the engine....its shit and is a bit embarrassing when it decides to do it in front of someone (as the starter is also quite noisy) but I can live with it.

Ironically, never fails to fire quickly off of stop start.....

My almost 3 y/o GTD has been occasionally doing this from new. A few weeks ago it took longer than normal to start and I felt the car felt a bit hesitant on my journey. When I got back in the car to return home it wouldn't start at all and despite the best efforts of the AA technician I had to be recovered to a VW dealership. The fault was diagnosed as the fuel pump control unit, which was replaced the next day. Got the car back and it was starting ok but there was still some hesitancy when driving along. Took it back and they replaced the fuel pump. It's all ok now.

Hello. It's an old subject, but current to me. I bought used VW Golf MK7 4motion 2.0 150HP (car is from 09.2014).

I have identical as described in this thread a problem with long cranking. Car always start at first time, but sometimes it took few seconds to start the engine. It's very annoying.
It's only happens at first cold start in the morning (car is always in garage). All day car works perfect.

I noticed that it happens more often as the weather outside is warm.

Have anyone solved this problem? I'll be grateful for any suggestions.

After purchase I have replace: timing belt, alternator belt, all filters (fuel filter, air filter), oil filter and oil. Battery was charged.

Thanks in advance.

there is a solution for this problem its replacing the VVT valve theres a big thread on one of the mk7 sites on facebook a guy by the name of diagnostic Dan ( search youtube ) solved the problem which involves replacing the VVT valve with the superseded part i priced it from VW the valve itself is about 80 then the cost of the new casing and fitting should cure the problem

Is yours a facelift gtd? If so I would suggest that the vvt module may not be the only cause of this issue. The reason I say that is because the modified vvt module was fitted to all production cars from late 2016 - early 2017 onwards. All the facelifts should therefore come with this already installed from the factory. Hence there may be another issue causing this. I have my suspicions that it may be an injector problem such as injector drift. I can categorically say though that use of premium diesel such as v power has made it so it a lot less often. I also think though that these engines get increasingly noisy as the miles go up - anyone else agree??

I have 2.0 TDI and 150000 km on the clock. I agree, engine is noisy.

I'm still searching solution for extended crank issue. On another forum someone said, that had replaced VVT Oil control modul like on the YT video with no luck.

This extended crank happen so randomly. For example,
it starts well ten times, the eleventh time has an extended start. One thing is for sure, it's only happen to me on cold start (first of the day).

Time will tell if it fixes the problem of extended cranking of the car. It seems to me, however, that after replacing parts, the car fires faster. Every time <1s. Of course, we are talking about the first morning launch of the car, because during the day there was never a problem.

I will let you know how the situation looks like in a while.
