I have 2012 vw tiguan and yesterday i drove it and it seemed like it was losing power but i figured that was just from the turbo being out so... i parked and then when i went to go turn it on it cranked and the motor was shaking so i stopped turned it off and checked the oil i was low "bone dry" so i went a bought Castro 5w-30 and i put it in pressed the gass a little and then it shook and died. i looked at the codes it was pulling through fixd and it said 8 problems and that the cylinders misfired why would it do this and how do i fix it. there is 86,000 miles on it and i had just had the fuel pump replaced and spark plugs not that long ago why would it do this?

All cylinders misfiring could be the spark plug wires put on in the wrong order. The bone dry with oil and the list of 8 problems coming up sounds very worrisome.
When they did the plugs did the replace the wires? That could have caused the issue.

I`m not sure if I can help you with that problem, but I guess you should insure you car. It will help you to save lots of money if something happens. Look here.

We have a 2010 Tiguan with the 2 liter turbo. I would suggest you look into articles referencing timing chain tensioner. There is a huge problem with this. Also there is a class action law suit levied against Volkswagen about this both in Canada and the US. We purchased our 2010 and I paid for the inspection at 150.00 and found out the chain tension was so bad that the VW dealership said we should no drive it off the lot until repaired . We had the dealer repair this before we purchased. If the chain jumps the damage can be Catastrophic
