    glow plug light flashing when lights on

    Jcrews, You hit the nail on the head. When I was changing my brake lights I broke the tab on the plastic light holder. I put it back the best I could and in the process bent a piece of the metal housing. This which was gounding out on the car. The dealer bent it back until I can get the part...

    Leaky window

    I have a "new to me" 2003 jetta wagon. Now that the rain has started I have noticed some leaking from the passenger window. The door seems to be aligned and the weather stripping is intact. I really don't see why it's leaking but need to know the best way to fix. Should I purchase new...

    Diesel vs Regular

    Near Spokane Wa. Diesel $3.91/gal Reg gas $3.60/gal Super $ 3.80/gal Only a $.30 spread which is a lot better than it was a few months ago. I am seing the price of diesel coming down faster than regular gas. Very nice indeed. J.

    Programmers???

    I am sure this does happen but I would bet that for every one fo the "hotrods" out there, there is one that is not. I really don't think "everyone" trashes their vehicle just because it has a tune. I want the programmer mainly for milage. I would also like the ability to put in different...

    Programmers???

    This is exactly what I was talking about. There are a lot of programmers for the diesel trucks and for gaser cars but not for the TDI. It would be nice to have a couple to choose from. Then I am sure there will be different types. One as you described and some that you have to download tune...

    DP gain worth it?

    I have the scangauge and for me the boost reading is all I need. Again, I am putting some "minor" mods but nothing too crazy. I think for me the scangauge will work just fine even if it is off by a lb or 2. By the way did I mention how much I love this scangauge. I am glad it was on the top...

    Programmers???

    Fair enough. It is nice to hear the aftermarket world has been growing so well for the TDIs. It seems as though the the TDI is getting noticed more 2nd to the high fuel cost. That will only help increase the need for the aftemarket parts/tunes. Thanks for the reply, J.

    Programmers???

    Yes, we have talked and I will prolly go this route. I'm just looking at all my options. The way things are heading for me I will not have the fundage to get a tune until next spring. Hopefully you will still be in Eastern Wa at that time. Then I could take a little trip. Rub, my main...

    Programmers???

    I do like the sounds of the Q-loader but the price is a little high for me. The programmer I purchased for my truck was several hundred less than the Q-loader. The reason? Because I have 5 or more different brands to choose from. This makes it more competitive which brings the price down to...

    Programmers???

    I have done some moderate research and found only one programer, the Q-loader. I have a programmer for my truck and could choose between several differenct brands. To me the programmer makes sense. You can hook it up to the OBDII port and download the tune. Make adjustments to the wheel...

    Tires affecting MPG? How much?

    I have heard the larger and wider 205/70R15 will gain better mileage. I have read some arguments that this will not net any gains 2nd to the width of the tire. Has anyone ever scangauged this to see if this is true? Will the larger 105/70R15 get better mileage than the stock 195/65R15...
