    2013 TDI 6speed manual - my first TDI

    I'd see what the seller does about it. Indigo blue is correct, it has sat for a while, bad juju for complex computer controls. Could even be crap in the fuel, modern diesel doesn't age well anymore.

    The other possible issue you have is the cpu gives up and shuts down if the rpm goes below 800, easy with the clutch feel removed like it is. There is a fitting on the clutch master cyl that needs replacing if you want a "normal" clutch feel. Need to search for that here on the site. Could be...

    Buying a "fixed" TDI

    Probably the same reason everybody hates smog regulations, cat converters, DPF's, you name it. Just one more miniscule time waster that takes you away from your phone screen.

    1/4, 3/8 or 1/2" drive?

    I mostly use 3/8, have the others AND a 1" drive with a couple of sockets from my aircooled days. The memories of loosening that @$!### axle nut......

    Engine off coasting a TDI.

    From what I understand, icing is caused by driving in wet slush and is mostly independent of engine running. I do not recall anybody icing a running car unless they were attempting boating their VW. With all the other nonsense going on computer controlled, AND, only using a quart of fuel every...

    If it's red or pink that's dyed ag fuel. Don't use that either.
