    EGR Cleaning Questions for ALH

    Thanks for the details. Yes I had the shop take the oil out of the intercooler during the EGR and Intake swap. For now I'm driving on higher speeds as the "new normal", as well I do push it even more every now and then on the highway. I have been reading up on the "EGR adaptation" using VCDS to...

    Installing Dieselgeeks fix on MK6 Jetta.

    Hmm OK, didn't know that he isn't able to do it. There's a suggestion in post #8 of this thread: https://forums.tdiclub.com/index.php?threads/installing-dieselgeeks-fix-on-mk6-jetta.509144/post-5616499. Giles's shop is in Markham and he's highly recommended as well (may not be the cheapest...

    I will recommend that. Based on your location, Precision Tuning (Perjad) is the closest recommended shop in our forums. Call him and get it done there.

    Post Intake Manifold and EGR replacement question

    Thanks for the feedback Nero Morg and ToxicDoc. We are using ULSD in Canada since 2007. I think it was just time to have those cleaned since they were last cleaned over 10 years/112K miles ago. My driving habits and route added to it. I'll monitor the deposits from now on.

    Leaking rad - Any DIYers to help Re & Re?

    That's what 2 shops told me that the whole front needs to be removed to get to it, hence the labour cost on this job is high. Parts cost around $200-$225. I did check a couple of youtube videos and apparently that's exactly what was shown in those videos.

    Follow up question on this - Any tips on keeping the deposits in the EGR and Intake to minimum accumulation levels? I really don't want to have to swap them again. I've seen youtube videos of TDI owners in the UK spraying Oven Cleaner in their EGR's and running their cars on idle to keep the...

    EGR Cleaning Questions for ALH

    Car had been running in limp mode for a while now, not much power at all on inclines and overall. Finally got the EGR and Intake Manifold swapped out today. Car came alive after that and runs so much better. This is what 10 years/180K kms of deposits looks like, there was barely any opening...
