Well, unfortunately the old injectors had to come out.
Took me a while to get replacements. I just installed them over the weekend and now the car is up and running. I'm glad I had the VCDS to be able to code them in. I wonder if I could somehow clean them.
Anyways it's all good so far, no leaks and it appears to be working normally.
I'm still not sure if it's the quality of the diesel fuel or the piss poor VW design for the injection pump. Anyhow I started to use an additive for each tank of fuel. I can't go through this ordeal again. It's just to expensive and time consuming.

On another note, I see that governments are starting to take action in phasing out diesel cars. At least that is the case in Europe. I think that's a shame. Diesel is still the most economic and efficient transportation.

Anybody heard anything about that in North America?

BR,
Dumitru

My new to me 2015 Passat with 28k miles suffered a HPFP failure today, had it towed to the dealer, should be back on the road next week, I emailed 2micron asking if he was still making his kits

I dont think they were ever made for the 2015 CVCA or CRUA engine codes.

I think you’re right, but I also think I can adapt the 2microntech filter to the HPFP, and possibly use the NickTang setup to filter the return fuel, or just use 2 NickTang kits to do both and eliminate the factory fuel filter assy all together, when I get my car back in a week or two I’ll know for sure, I may just park my Passat and put another 200k on my 03 Jetta.

That is the best backup for a CR car: a VE or PD.
