    EA288 Water Pump Failures?

    who fixed, and refilled your cooling system? I'd check there first.

    DPF Pressure Sensors Melted

    Makes sense, cracked during timing belt change from moving them around. I assume it was already brittle

    Oil leaks appeared out of nowhere

    The CRUA/CVCA (2.0ll 110kw) have been around since 2013 I believe (maybe even 2012) on the 7 series in Europe. So in a way, the 2015 US version should have had the bugs worked out. Of course, the water pump issue has been known since 2013, so go figure.

    Would you buy this 2013 Jetta Sportwagen?

    8 year old car, with roughly 200k miles, for $6k ? I'd say it is steep. but it is all about the market.

    100,000 miles since oil change. Dont be like me.

    Considering how much you are driving, you can certainly get away with long oil change interval. At this point, it's more important to change the oil filter. Car is still running and doesn't burn oil, impressive!

    pull the engine cover, do you see any oil ? engine sound seems normal to me.

    EA288 Cooling system bleeding

    did you run the car with max heating on? and how thorough of a drain did you do ?

    Cooling fan turns on and off

    seems normal to me.

    Leak from under crankshaft pulley

    I had the same thing and thought there could have a been a leak or something. When I did the timing belt, I did not find any leaking seals at all. So yes, i think it is just dirt collecting, from fuel spill, water pump drip, etc.

    ///// Making the Air Conditioning more economical /////

    how hot is it outside ?? On my mk7, it's hard to be too cold inside on speed setting 1, particularly on a hot day. so consider yourself lucky your AC is working that well.

    Radiator Fans Randomily Running At Full Power

    could be doing a regen. check with VCDS or equivalent for codes.

    Air bubbles from fuel filter housing

    The fuel filter is under positive pressure. So if it is not leaking you are good.

    Changing Timing Belt: Loosening the High Pressure Fuel Pump Sprocket

    Gently tap Penetrative oil If that doesn't work, just tighten it back. Most likely you don't need to adjust that anyway, and a small misalignment is acceptable.

    Timing Belt: Cam Sprocket Not Locked But at DTC

    OK, I see your problem. The camshaft carrier is no longer aligned with the hole, right ? Then just tighten the sprocket center bolt just enough so you can rotate the camshaft carrier back to the right place, then put the pin in and leave it there.
