Give Pendle Performance a call as they can also do a roll-Back and they offer Caddy2K Forum members a discounted rate for proper rolling road remaps which will get the best out of your engine and really transform your Caddy. The rolling road set up allows them to deliver a tune which matches your specific vehicle and should also help identify any hardware issues.

Tuning is one area where buying cheap is not without risks. Sadly there are too many typical laptop tuners who simply do a basic ECU flash with an off the shelf map and then head for the hills.

completely agree.... SA Tuning have developed their own maps and have a rolling road too.....he really seems to know his onions. Have a look at some of his videos on youtube.

well, I've had the rollback done.....first thoughts are that it is much quieter on tick over....no rattle.
I've yet to try to give it the beans though.

so, I've put a few miles on it since the rollback...... Its definitely quieter and more refined. The fuel consumption is much better.. Night and day!

Before, I would put £20 of Good diesel, v-power or the Esso Good one, and one trip of about 50 miles to my mum's and back would make a huge dent in it.....now, the same fuel with the same journey has hardly moved.....and since I got my air con regassed today, thats been on full whack too! :D

All in all, well worth doing......and the egr is hardly making any noises now too👍

Thanks very much for providing an update.- It is good to hear your Caddy is running well again.

Sadly too many threads start but eventually run into the sands, because they lack feedback on whether or how the problem was solved.

Have fun

I would always recommend the rollback however, VW have become aware of this and the very latest software versions may not be able to roll back successfully and can cause errors in other modules.

If a roll back can't be performed (due to the above) then a very competent tuning company can modify the correct maps to effectively return it back to the original fueling and EGR settings.

I don't do Facebook, but the biggest thing I noticed since having the rollback done (by SA Tuning) , is how quiet the van is now.....the annoying rattle is gone.
