So the gap was the difference. However ... the gap was my fault. I was relying on the bolt to seat the 0-ring. Turns out that it was deforming the sensor flange. I straightened the flange, used a small persuader to push the sensor in all the way, and voila, started on the first turn.

Thanks for all the suggestions and the patience with my long drawn out explanations. Sorry that it was such a dumb mistake on my part. I am inspired to fix some other things. One is that sooty ASV and Emissions Workshop (currently not on). I also suspect that the turbo is not working right (very sluggish). Fuel economy is way too low, even for SoCal city driving. I get this loud gurgling sound with acceleration. I'll be starting some new threads after I give everyone a break.

But first, if I am going to diagnose things better, what would you all recommend for a scanner. Is VCDS and best for my situation? Other suggestions?

Thanks everyone! is offline   Reply With Quote
