    Mk7 gas to TDI swap

    My cousin have a 1.6 TDI and is not happy with, had a ton of problems. He says that 2.0 TDI are more reliable. I found my 2009 Jetta SW TDI (CBEA) also unreliable, but I have 350 k+, so... may be the high mileage also. I think is better to go with buying a crashed but fixable car and fix it. You...

    loss of power after HpFp replacement

    tdiatlast: Thank you very much for your thoughts! I also foresee a (more or less) forced buy-back, as per reasons that you mention, plus: those cars are old and have high mileage, why to (so-expensive) fix such a car? I suspect VW not willing to work toward a such fix, and I can't blame them...

    Today I did a check at dealership: all emission system parts must be replaced, 7000$ only in parts. The adviser told me is not worth. He said either to return the car in buy-back program, either go with all emission delete tuning. I don't know what to do...

    loss of power after HpFp replacement

    There is a return line from injectors and another one from HPFP. They merge together in a metal line, close and almost on top of CR. From there, going to fuel filter is a rubber line. Well, I cut that line and I put an in-line plastic diesel - friendly filter. There was no metal at all in the...

    loss of power after HpFp replacement

    Updates: No more glow plug light blinking. No error codes found, no MIL. Still some under-power, but no more vibrations, specially at idle. Diesel injection specific noise is much louder when I press harder on gas pedal with low RPM. I found 3 used Injectors today. Wish me good luck! I had...

    Does anyone know if an ALH can be swapped into an MK5 Jetta?

    Men, don't buy any VW diesel 1.6 engine, not the new ones. My cousin have plenty of problems with injectors, made by Siemens. There was an old one classical, the only thing that was needed electrical curent was IP, to stop/start; this one is good, my brother have one and runs ok, but hard to...

    loss of power after HpFp replacement

    Thank you! I had to drive the car to a mechanic with VCDS and he confirmed my codes, but only in cyl 4, the 3 seems to come back. Going back home, I felt a jump (like when you start an engine by pushing or towing it); I later realized than the car run smoother... There is for sure more power...

    loss of power after HpFp replacement

    Hello to all! Today I managed to re-start my 2009 CBEA engine, after a HPFP failure (2nd time) and replacement. I primed as needed (2x10 minute of both pumps running) and I used some quick start spray to help. When the engine started, I noted very rough idle and a lot of power missing. When I...

    ALH engine in a 2009 CBEA Jetta TDI

    I like the CBEA engine, but I don't like all those sensors / captors (electrical stuff) that are much less reliable than the engine. I bout the car @ 100000 km / 2 years old. Two monts later I found oil in the expansion tank cooling system. I learn that the car had the same problem twice before...
