    timing belt not that bad to DIY

    JSW locking gas...um... diesel filler cover

    when I lock my car the fuel door locks and when I unlock the car the fuel door unlocks. My wife's 2016 golf wagen is the same. I thought that was pretty standard on all modern cars - my landrover does the same thing cheers Barri

    2011 JSW P0087 fault codes

    believe it or not OH it was not the control solenoid. I saw you, 2 micron and dweisel discussing control solenoid replacement in one of the many p0087 threads so bought one from a supplier in the UK - genuine Bosch - fitted it (only a 3 minute job) and the codes were still coming on. I removed...

    2011 JSW P0087 fault codes

    I have read most of the HPFP posts on the MK5 and Mk6 boards and havent seen a similar failure pattern although most people never post their final solution. Mine failed intermittently over the last 2500 miles - failing as infrequently as every 500 miles or as often as 2 or 3 times in a mile...

    2011 JSW P0087 fault codes

    codes came back after 27 miles :-( Took the car back into the dealer and they had a VOA tech from Phoenix come over and test it - he said the HPFP was failing intermittently when pressurized to above 5000psi and losing all pressure. They are replacing the HPFP and I pick the car up tomorrow...

    2011 JSW P0087 fault codes

    just another update - the dealer found the original vent pipe plug for the tank was still installed (supposed to just be for transport) and the gas tank cap was no longer venting so the tank was under vacuum and caused the tank pump to fail. Its wierd because when I tested the pump I was getting...

    2011 JSW P0087 fault codes

    with mine when the flashing glowplug light comes on I could stop and restart and run normally and it set a pending code. If I drove for more than a minute with the glowplug light flashing the MIL would come on and set a hard code. Once it set a hard code the car goes into limp home and is just...

    2011 JSW P0087 fault codes

    Took the car back today with a printout of the faults from vcds and a copy of the extended fix warranty. Local VW say they can do nothing if the codes are not present in the ecu and I have to clear the codes or the car is undrivable. I have now left the car with them and they will drive it to...
