Well the car is back at VW at 19,000 miles with whatís confirmed as cracked DPF and clogged egr filter after throwing a p2002 and p0401 earlier this week. So far no issues with the dealer replacing it no questions asked. Makes me wonder though if my initial visit was a bad sensor that they didnít want to fix, and it eventually led to this...

The p0401 code came on intermittently for me for quite a while too before it became permanent. I hope you received for a refund for your initial diagnostic payment.

What is proper procedure for clearing a "hydrolock"?

About a week ago, had a full blown "hydrolock" on starting 2009 Jetta TDI with 245k. Happened this bad only once before, many yrs ago. The engine stumbled and died on first attempt to start. Subsequent attempt, battery could not turn over engine. Jumped battery in second car but still wouldn't turn over & realized the dreaded slurpy was ingested. After many short bursts on the starter, engine turned over & fired on some of the cylinders & died a few times before it would stay lit. After a while, all smoothed out & no after effects, in fact did an 1800km run up north & back. Battery is in it's 10th year so thought that was the issue until I scrolled back in the memory banks to the previous event.

I am assuming cylinders had only taken in enough liquid to boost compression so high starter motor couldn't turn over the engine.

My measured fuel consumption is up 10% post fix (mfd understates fuel consumption 10%).

Not impressed...
