What goes wrong with VW Amarok?

The most common reliability issues associated with the 2.0 Diesel VW Amarok are: EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve failure. Serpentine/Accessory drive belt failure prior to its 75000km kilometer change over interval. DPF (diesel particulate filter) getting clogged.

Is VW Amarok reliable?

A full complement of airbags and high build quality make the Volkswagen Amarok a dependable and safe choice for long-term ownership. Its components have been developed and tested to a very high standard compared to some other commercial vehicles.

Does a 2011 Amarok have a DPF?

In fact, except for the 2011 2.0 TSI Amarok engine specification, all other Amarok engine models have come out of the factories fitted with a DPF system. This means that an Amarok model you currently own has a higher chance of having a DPF fitted in it and this spoils all the fun.

Are VW Amarok discontinued?

In fact, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles admitted recently the Amarok would’ve been discontinued had it not been for the tie-up with Ford. Developed primarily in Australia, the next Ranger is being engineered as a true global player since it will be sold in more than 180 countries all over the world.

What kind of engine does Volkswagen Amarok have?

This one, though, is different. It is a 2.0-liter bi-turbodiesel unit that offers up to 170 hp. Unlike its four-door sibling, which was launched in 2011, the Amarok single cab comes with a standard 6-speed manual, but the 8-speed ZF automatic transmission was offered as an option.

What happens to the coolant in a VW Amarok?

Thanks. When speeding up on a highway, the temperature gauge reaches the maximum, even though the engine cooling fan is working. So I stop and wait for about 10 minutes until it cools down to 110°C. When driving at 60 mph or more, the coolant level raises and falls, losing about 250ml.

Where is the EGR valve on a VW Amarok?

I want to explain how I repaired my van: when opening the hood, on the right side of the engine (the co-driver side) on the top is the EGR valve. It’s got a plastic black cover with a plug of 3 wires. I removed the 6 Torx screws, the cover and a spring that makes electrical contact, careful not to lose it.

Why does my VW Amarok make so much noise?

When driving on a highway, the engine is almost not heard until the 5th gear is set, when its noise is much higher. It seems as if something suddenly turned on or as if it was another kind of gear. Is this normal or should the noise be always the same?
