Someone stranded in Kearney, they're not from around there and have gone to Precision Import Repair. I'm about 300 miles away from him in Des Moines, is there someplace else that he should be going? I know nothing about what's available in NE.

Can someone please PM RayBrubaker if they have any info?It's his car but a friend is using it and the owner is currently out of the country.

Thanks
Steve A

Hello new here and need help. I have a 2006 Jetta Tdi with 135000 miles. The car was running normal with a egr that has been leaking for over a year. I changed my oil and fuel filter and manually moved the actuator on the turbo. I didn't adjust it just moved it and it moved hard then freed up. When i started the car it started hard pry due to the fuel filter change. I noticed driving the car i could hear the exhaust more then before and power was down a few week later. I put on about 400 miles a week. Then the weather started to get near 0 I added five gallons of number 1 from the same station i normally get fuel. The family and i went for a drive we put about 200 miles on and parked the car in the garage. The next day i started the car and got out to let it warm up and if ran for about 30 sec's and died. All the car will do is start and die runs maybe 5-10 seconds. If you heat the block is may stay idling no power at all putting it in gear will kill the motor. If it idles for a hour or so it will drive around the block but smoke with. You can smell the un burned diesel!


Now i have
replace the fuel filter twice thinking jelled its not
checked the anti shutter valve
took it to the big vw dealer in the big O and after a bill they told me its a flat cam. They wanted a small fee of 6000.00 BUCKS. The cam was needing replaced so i did it my self with a kit from Franks. Hes great to work with!
Now new cams same thing.

Unhook the vacuum line on the turbos accumulator and the car will run and idle so i broke the cam in. Right when you plug the vacuum line to the accumulator the car will die and smoke black. The accumulator rod doesn't have a chance to move before the car dies. Like its running off the air from the vacuum line. I was thinking stick veins in the turbo now but the level moves freely now. Could a plugged egr valve cause this. Im kinda lost with a diesel any help or ideas will be appreciated. Also not getting any codes.

Also in need for a vag-com to check my timing Frank will help over the phone. But i need it running first but i will make it right if i can use some ones tool.

Just a heads up, I got a set of OEM Bi-Xenon headlights for sale from my JSW including the kufatec wiring. If anybody is interested send me a message, I will post it on the classifieds but here is a picture.
