Haven't had occasion to try yet--just got the '13 two weeks ago. It has a function that claims to do that; I'll see if I can find more information about it.

Nope, it's a scan tool, not an uploader . . . and even if it would upload, you would not have an image that would accomplish the task to upload . . .

If the VAG401 allows checking/verifying IP timing for the ALH engine, I would be very interest in picking one up.

I guess I will start my first post on this forum by reviving an old thread.

I purchased a VAG401 mainly to run the fuel pumps for a filter change and I am having the same issue as others have mentioned in this thread (only primes for 1 second). From what I have read, this is due to a software issue with the latest version V8.4.1. Does anyone have an older software version that they could send me? Unfortunately Xtool was unable to help and I couldn't find anything on the net.

Probably just how it works I have one though havenít thought to use it to prime the system.

I just popped off the return line and used a mighty vac to get air out, then after a few cranks started right up.

Also helps if you fill the filter housing with diesel.
