2014 Tiguan EPC/Engine light on, rough start

Asked by Mar 26, 2019 at 11:08 AM about the 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan AWD Comfortline

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My vehicle actually had a rough start about two weeks ago and it shut down
when I tried to leave the basement garage. Tried to start several times and
run fine after five minutes, but the engine light was on. Sp I sent the car to
the dealer and got replaced all the spark plugs and one broken coil as well
as oil/air separator. Runs better than before.

However, now I have the same problem again, the vehicle shakes a little bit
when you start to drive for the first 3-5 minutes and then everything is fine.
But now the EPC light is on. Does anyone know the possible causes?

See if u can get trouble codes out of it?

Runs okay this afternoon, the EPC light is off. No sure if I still need to send it in for inspection. Gonna monitor for couple of days.

Couldn't even start the vehicle after a week. Sent in to the dealer and told me to do the intake cleaning (which I did a year ago). Doesn't make sense to me.
