VW Caddy Engine
The VW Caddy is a small van that has been produced by the German automaker Volkswagen since 1980. It is based on the same platform as the Volkswagen Golf and shares many of its components with other VW models.
The Caddy was originally designed as a panel van (a van without windows) but has since been available in a variety of configurations, including a five-seat people-carrier and a seven-seat MPV.
The Caddy is powered by a range of petrol and diesel engines, the most popular of which is the 1.6-litre TDI diesel. This engine is known for being both powerful and economical, but it has been known to suffer from a few issues.
The most common problem with the 1.6 TDI engine is a build-up of carbon deposits on the intake valves. This can cause the engine to lose power and eventually fail. The problem is most often seen in Caddys that have been driven for a long time or covered a lot of miles.
VW has issued a number of updates to the 1.6 TDI engine in an attempt to fix the carbon deposit issue, but the problem still persists for some owners. If you own a Caddy with this engine, it’s important to keep an eye on the performance of your vehicle and get it serviced regularly.
