Lupo 1.4 FSI low temperature and drop in speed

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone πŸ™‚

I have bought a used Lupo 1.4 FSI benzin for my wife here in Sweden and its a very nice and small car.

The problem is that it jutters both when using automatic and semi automatic gear. This problem increases after 4-7 hours of driving at mixed speed (highway and city).
Suddenly after driving for 40 km of distance at a speed of 100-120 km/h the car can suddenly have difficulty in continouing the speed, drops in speed slowly and the engine temperature drops from 90 to 70 and lower.

I have changed the plugs and now I changed the oil and the oilfilterand added fuel cleaner. The car became a little bit better but the problem persists.

The error code I get is P1072 ( otherwise no other codes.

What do you think the problem is? And how to solve it?

Check the coilpack for green corrosion.

Also debate a green temp sender and a thermostat.

If the temperature gauge shows the temperature dropping, but you drive normally, @RichΒ is right. It is probably the temperature sensor. Loss in power is because it is running on a cold program. Plugs were probably dark or nearly black when you changed them...

welcome to club lupo! :)
