VW Unveils Fixes For EA189 Diesel Engines Involved In The Emissions Scandal

Written By:

Volkswagen has unveield some quite simple fixes for its 1.6 and 2-litre TDI diesel engines involved in the emissions scandal.

The new fixes were presented recently to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority and are apparently quite easy to perform.

The 1.6-litre engine will get a new piece of hardware called a flow transformer which is a mesh that calms the swirled air flow in front of the air mass sensor, helping improve the measuring accuracy of the air mass sensor. Also needed is a software update. The 2-litre engine only needs a software update.

The emissions fix will take just an hour to perform on the 1.6-liter while it will take half that time to fix the 2-litre unit.

A fix is still in the works for the 1.4-litre TDI engine.
