A simple piece of plastic to save Volkswagen’s scandal TDI

Pieza soluciĆ³n motor 1.6 TDI EA189 Volkswagenhave written rivers of ink about the scandal of the TDI engines from Volkswagen. Some wondered whether their car is affected you would lose performance, what would be the measures taken by the brand to reconfigure a few engines that could distort the data of NOx. Well, we already know what will be the ultimate solution for the 2.0 TDI and 1.6 TDI, a piece of plastic and a reprogramming to the latter.


however, that piece that you showed has a key role in the element of combustion, as it manages the flow of air. With pints of percolate, that grid reduces the turbulence of the air, which allows the air mass sensor a more precise measurement. In this way, Volkswagen tells us that it will reduce the emissions of NOx, together with the reprogramming.

The piece in question, that only mount on the 1.6 TDI, it is to be placed just before the flowmeter, and would have to know if it reduces the flow of air with a smaller size, or how it manages to reduce the emission of NOx. And don’t forget that Volkswagen makes sure that the engines by now with a solution, the 1.6 and 2.0 TDI, will not lose power or increase your consumption.

Of course, without any cost to the client. The 2.0 TDI is content with a reprogramming without the need to install any additional part. It will take less than 30 minutes.

it Is still yet to know what will happen not only with the 1.2 TDI is also affected, whose solution should arise in the next few days, but also with the 3.0 TDI V6 which eventually would also be affected by software that manipulates the emissions.
