    Timing belt question

    I concur. Waterpump will fail before timing belt change interval. Buy a kit from Frank06 and get an improved pump! I did mine around 95K miles.

    2013 Passat stumble I've researched for weeks...

    Can you give me a procedure to perform this using VCDS? I have never done this and Would APPRECIATE giving it a try. I have been given a run around on this issue and it bothers me as I had had it since the fix. My CKRA has 120K Miles now and warranty expires in 3K.

    Engine noise when cold.

    Normal oil consumption?

    2006 Jetta BRM - P0122 Throttle Issues

    It also could be battery problems. I've had a HOST of malfunction code 0010 before. They are all about electrical gremlins. Then there is a pesky relay that came up on my car recently. I forgot the number, but I'll get back with you.

    I'm glad you fixed your's with a relay. Hard to understand, but these electronic gremlins are never very forthcoming of their issues. Mine had a 460 relay issue as well. Keep one in your tool box!
