days Ago we did echo of the news very important in the scandal Dieselgate of Volkswagen. According to Automotive News, the German group had submitted to the federal department of transport of Germany, the envisaged solution for the motors TDI EA 189 of 1.2, 1.6 and 2.0 liters in the front, which are the ones that are affected by misrepresenting the emissions of NOx in the approval process.
Today, Volkswagen has issued a statement giving the changes that are taking place, emerging some differences with respect to the official report.In addition, Volkswagen has promised that or the benefits of, or consumption of any of the three motors affected by the scandal of the emissions affected, in the same way that it has reiterated for the umpteenth time, that the cars are completely safe.
Amendments to engines 1.6 TDI
The TDI engines EA 189 2.0-liter will require, as expected, a software update that will take place in half an hour in the technical services officers of the mark. For the engine 1.2 TDI the ultimate solution will be presented at the end of the month, but Volkswagen expects that is limited exclusively to a software update.
engine 1.6 TDI remains the most affected, and that will require hardware changes, with the addition of new parts. Volkswagen will place a transformer the air flow in front of the flowmeter, as supplemented by a reprogramming of the software and that will take place in a time less than the time. With the addition of this piece the flow meter will be able to work more precisely and optimally adjusting the combustion process and, therefore, the resulting emissions.
therefore the solution provided is much more simple and economic that the replacement of catalytic converters and injectors which it did echo Automotive News.
