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.
