How to act if problems with NOx system are solved, engine performs Stratified charge again, but in some conditions uneven run is noticed or 3104 error (uneven run, Stratified charge) is stored.
(1) Software upgrade of the existing release using ISTA P: The service data status ”Button designation: improve operational smoothness conversion” must be programmed via the ”conversation” path;
(2) Software upgrade using ISTA P;
(3) Software upgrade using winKFP (flashing of the correct software release, regardless FR);
(5) Checking for misfire counters. Description here;
(6) Replacement of the ignition coil. Additional information here.
