No, that original engine has been dumped years ago, these problems related only to the twin charger engines, that Leon engine will just have a turbo - or has it? Anyway later engines were meant to have been sorted out.Should I stay away from the 2014 seat leon fr 1.4 tsi then?

So the 2014 leon had twin turbo engines?No, that original engine has been dumped years ago, these problems related only to the twin charger engines, that Leon engine will just have a turbo - or has it? Anyway later engines were meant to have been sorted out.
Edit:- I'm not sure if that was a very useful posting there by me - sorry (you wrote 2014, I read 2017!)
I've just checked the tech specs on auto trader the engine has 138bhp so I'd imagine that engine won't need two turbo' sTo be honest, I don't know, if the engine output is something like 180PS then I would think it was, anything lower than that and it would not be twin charger.
Most of these issues were down to the design of engine that was only available as a twin charger, other issues associated with a 1.4TSI engine from 2014 would be weak cam chain drive system, though by 2014 I would have hoped that these other issues had been resolved.
If any of that makes sense!
Could this mean that getting a revo stage 1 would increase reliability over newest OEM software (which technically addresses fueling issues and stuff)Revo actually took it upon themselves to rewrite this part of the coding, which isn't the norm. Usually they just re configure boost pressure, Air-Fuel-Ratios, timing etc. After this was done people, including myself who were totally standard before, flocked to Revo just for a car that would work properly. It took SEAT several months after this to release software that would solve this problem but of course they still needed to abide by the new EU regulations which REVO didn’t.
This is a really good writing. I hope that I can get your permission to translate it into Mandarin to benefit the readers of VW forum in Taiwan. I will also provide them the link to this article for supervising the accuracy of my translation.LUCIFER'S ULTIMATE GUIDE 1: FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEMS[PICS TO FOLLOW]
Hello twincharged owners. My name is Mark.....aka Lucifer and I have spent the last 4 years in ownership of a 1.4tsi Seat Ibiza. I have now at long last managed to conquer stage 3 tuning on this engine after several setbacks and much more money spent than I ever wanted. I still honestly believe after all the inerrant problems I have discovered with this engine and products designed for it by certain company’s, that the engine can still be tuned on a budget and can be reliable. Hence this guide........hope you all enjoy.
FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEMS WITH THESE ENGINES:
1. Misfiring, Oil Consumption, Engine Failure
2. PCV System
4. Timing Chain
6. Supercharger Magnetic Clutch
Did they specifically remove or examine the spark plugs? If they haven't touched the plugs, then basically they failed to diagnose the fault in time. Is the car back with them now? Only choice now is to get it stripped down and inspect the damage.I wonder if anyone could help me, my 1.4tsi engine with a cthe engine in has failed because apparently my spark plug had broken off and fallen into the engine. The car was taken to the dealership two weeks previous to it breaking down as It wasnt driving right, after they had changed the water pump. They had the car for two days and said that the car is perfectly fine and there’s nothing wrong with it. It then broke down on me and this is the situation I’m in now.
Any help would be appreciated
