You responded to my post of 5/2/23 asking what am I trying to do. I did more work on my NO START ALH and have a detailed post on 5/21/23. I would greatly appreciate it if you would take a look and give me any of your insight. Thank you.
Hey Brian, I really appreciate all your input in the forums, both past and present and a preemptive thank for all the future work. I love reading your comments and especially your threads. Wish we lived closer to you so I could be a client lol. Hope all is well with you!!
We talked once before about having you work on several of my TDI's. The biggest logistic problem is I'm in Florida.
I was hoping to chat with you about shipping one of my B5.5 up to you for some engine work, plus a few other items
we can talk about. I'll give you a call this week to see what might work best in terms of timing.
Hi Brian: TW-Louisville. The 05 Passat (you know the ONE ) still performing at 340K+; however yesterday the ASR light came on - and stays on. Can you point me in a direction or 2 to diagnose? As usual - THANKS.
I purchased Brussels Belgian‘s car several years back. 4door sedan. GTD. I don’t drive it any more. It’s been sitting for several months and it is time to pass it on. Right around 210k on it. Just south of Philadelphia PA.
Hello Oilhammer! A couple of years ago you kindly helped me connect with a TDI specialist for my (then) recently purchased '96 TDI Passat Wagon--Matt Phaelan. He moved to Newport, OR, and went completely MIA about a year ago. Are you aware of any other TDI specialists or shops in Southern California?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Mr. oilhammer What is this permanent heater core fix you speakith about? I hane a 2014 TDI SE and I am on number 3 and a flush again at dealer. They would not replace it this time because the got the floor vents to 100 degrees after a flush. So I know I will be back at some point. They have put new antifreeze in and flushed every time. The car just turned 60k Please tell me the cure!!!
Hi Oilhammer, I have an acquaintance who ran his 09 TDI out of fuel on the road. Now he has a flashing glow plug light and a no start condition. They called me. I ran the VCDS routine to run them simultaneously 4x. Still no start. Fuze F14 is good. They are believing that the HPFP is cratered. Would that be your assessment?
I saw a super old post of yours where you mentioned you replace a lot of RCV valves. I recently replaced mine with a super cheap one, no brand (i.e. polar bear/RKX) and was wondering if you’ve had cases where you’ve had to replace them twice bc of poor quality replacement?)
Hi Oilhammer, 2005 Passat TDI clogged Catalytic Converter - no one makes a replacement Cat, No Dealer - no aftermarket ones.
Might have to gut both chambers but will I set off the Sensors that are in each chamber and get a constant Check Engine Light? Any tips on replacing a cat convert unit that does not exist anymore and not triggering those sensors? Best , Blair
oilhammer, i was reading a thread from a while ago and was wondering if you the part numbers to replace the chain driven oil pump on an 02 alh with the chainless pump. Btw we have met at several southeast gtg. DanG144, TerryTdi, Turbinewhine (rest in peace my friend) houpty are some of the people I used to go to gtgs with.
