    Default Amarok V6 air escaping lump mode!

    Hi my Rocky is broken!

    Driving on 7 passes road in garden route heard a sound like a puncture.

    When I stop and idle nothing.

    Then going up Outeniqua mountain Bakkie went into limp mode.

    Now hobbling back to Knysna.

    As long as I keep the Bakkie from boosting all is OK!

    VW assist says drop of at Knysna or George dealership to look at it on Monday.

    Agh spelling error in heading can't edit.

    Limp mode! Not Lump mode

    Perhaps you have a small hole in a boost pipe?

    Yip, you have a leak somewhere on the pressurised side of your intake system. Could be as simple as a small pipe that has popped off or a hole/split in a boost pipe. Give the intake a good look over for anything off, split or out of place.

    Thanks all for comments.

    Yes it is definitely a leak on the boost somewhere but I can't find it

    It is getting worse so I will let the Amarok rest and let the warrantee do its work on Monday.

    My guess is it might be more serious than I thought. When I drove into Knysna, in traffic, at idling speed, there is a terrible mechanical rattle, when I release the accelerator.

    Mal Hannes, seems like this trip is not a very good one for you so far if I remember correctly from other posts you had issues with punctures on your way down...

    We are visiting in George, close to VW as well. Heading back to JHB on Saturday, shout if we can assist with something.

    Mal, do you think the gravel roads may have contributed to the issue you are having?

    Yes it seems this softie can't do gravel.

    The tyres we all knew won't last on gravel.

    It was irritating but fully expected.

    The turbo pipe or whatever now did not survive is just not acceptable on a Bakkie.

    So let's see how serious it is and if they can sort it quickly it is not what I expect on a 14 month old Bakkie with 40 000km on.

    Thank you very much, this is my third real trip with the Bakkie and I am dissapointed.

    Faith can be restored if it is something small.

    My Amarok(2.0) now has 220 000kms. I do a lot of gravel and farm with my DC. Amarok is the best of both worlds to me. Hang on and get a verdict first before cutting your wrists.

    I agree with your logic in my brain but I want to use the Amarok for Namibia and Mozambique and if the Garden Route is to much then how will it do any long distance on gravel.

    This does not mean I don't love it.

    Today was typically why I love the drive train of the Amarok. Tar gravel tar gravel.

    Ive changed my 20 inch rims to 17ís with higher rubber 265/70/17ís and a lot softer on road and far better on gravel.

    Should be only something small imo otherwise the bakkie would cut the power completely

    Ja verseker.

    Dis seker nie fair om die brand af te skryf oor een klein issue nie. Maar ja ek het nie issues gehad met die Toyota nie.

    Kom ons kyk.

    Nee glad nie, ek verstaan.

    Die is maar net n goeie voorbeeld van hoe iemand nooit weer and n sekere maak sal vat nie oor slegte ondervinding met die maak, of dit nou oupa of pa of jou eie ondervinding was.

    Dit is wat die lewe so lekker maak, dat ons almal n keuse het en nie almal se keuses is die selfde nie, vir hulle eie redes natuurlik.

    Ek is maar n boring ou, ek bly maar by wat vir my werk.

    Chris8d en dit is ook hoekom jy, en ek, nie sukkel nie. Ek is rerig te veel en ver in die bos om oor sulke goed te worry. Maar ek sal daai v6 love as n dorp's bakkie!

    Hannes laat weet tog vir ons nuuskieriges hoe gaan dit met die bakkie as jy hom vandag kan laat deurgaan - glo dit is iets klein - ek is seker oor 'n paar maande kry jy 'n VW tattoo

    Die blou brak is weer reg en sommer lus vir bietjie ry.

    Dit was toe net 'n los pyp een of ander tegnikus wat nie sy werk gedoen het nie.

    Die smile is weer groot.
