Slower and hesitation after purge valve recall PCM flash!!
Has anyone else had the recall performed for the evap canister purge valve, where they flash the computer?
My car is now significantly slower and hesitates/bogs. When you gave it throttle before, after a slight amount of turbo lag it would accelerate cleanly and quickly, with torque-steer (and wheelspin through third, if wet). If you floored it on highway in 6th gear, it felt like an automatic kicking down when the boost came on.
Now it just keeps hesitating and bogging and EVENTUALLY accelerates.
A guy at work who used to be a Porsche master tech explained what they probably did - will have to get that explanation again. But at the end of the day, he said they leaned it out so under heavy throttle applications, it is starving for fuel.
This sucks - I feel like they’ve ruined the car. Took away all it’s personality.
Anyone else have this experience?
