About the Touareg
The Touareg first made its debut in 2002, becoming the very first SUV model to be released by the German manufacturer. Since then, there have been three generations, with the latest of these hitting the markets in 2018.
The first generation models were developed with the Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7, but this was updated in the third generation.
In 2020, the model began development alongside its corporate cousins, the Audi Q8, Bentley Bentayga, and Lamborghini Urus. Rival models from other manufacturers include the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe.
Being on the market for over two decades means that there has been plenty of time for common issues to be noted for the model. The most common of these is P0455, which indicates that there is a leak in the EVAP system.
Touareg owners have luckily found this can be simply fixed by fastening a loose fuel cap. In some cases, replacing the fuel cap can be required if it is faulty.
Another common code for the SUV is P0430, which indicates that there is a problem with the catalytic converter in the second bank of the engine. It is worth noting that this code only affects Touareg models with V-shaped engines.
Exhaust leaks and old, damaged catalytic converters are the most likely cause of this problem.
Fault code P0087 is another code that some owners have had to deal with. This code represents a low-pressure condition in the fuel rail.
It is important to check that the fuel system is actually suffering from low pressure or if the fuel pressure sensor is faulty. If any other fuel-related fault codes are logged, these can be an indication that there is a real problem with your Touareg’s fuel supply.
