Don't be a gorilla and only loosen it as much as you need to. Sometimes they don't need to be loosened.

And when you tighten it down the values will change.

What should the IQ be of a 1.9 ALH 5 speed? Mine is currently reading 5.2 MG/h.

Default VAG Newbie with Questions

Hi Guys
Let me apologize right off the bat if this question has already been asked\answered somewhere. I have been reading the forums and the more I read the more confused I get.

I currently have a Canadian 2015 Passat TDI. I would like to do some very basic tweaks (At least to start) as I have no automotive experience. The original thing I was looking to do was change the fan speed on Auto setting on the climate control. Also would be nice to monitor any fault codes. Not sure what else I can \ should do.

I am thinking that the VCDS is to much tool for me so I was looking at maybe getting the VCD11. It looks like the one touch programming may be perfect for a noob like me.

Anyone have any suggestions? Maybe I should just not mess with it at all being a noob or maybe this is not the tool I should use. Also, Is there a site somewhere that may list the mods I can or should do for this particular car?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you must buy a tool, get the VCDS. Better yet make some friends you can borrow from, you don't need it all that often. It will not replace mechanical knowledge.
Search out local VW groups, the gas cars use the same device.
