    PD fuel pump durability

    then you have the four unit injectors... so in all, there's a whopping 7 pumps in the PD-TDI fuel system - it is awesome, and immensely reliable and durable. I must be missing something. I don't see 7 fuel pumps. Tank, tandem, + 4 injectors = 6. Is the vacuum end of the tandem related to...

    05 Jetta Wagon getting only 36 MPG !!!!!!!

    TornadoRed, The profile is duely updated. Florida is reasonably warm and our humidity would further rob the air's capacity to remove heat from the intercooler...I haven't kept the best records but always check the mileage w/ each fillup. It seems like the mileage started going south after...

    PD recall

    I took it in last week. Took about 3 hours for everything. New pump looks identical to old one except for a green dot of paint. Lynch Imports in Daytona Beach did it all and were very nice to deal with.

    SCOTTPOLL: Scott /VW connection?

    My name's not Scott but, my oldest son....Scott. The distribution of members named scott may be just the tip of the iceberg of this anomaly. May need to expand the survey to check how far beyond the member before you find another Scott. Getting freaky. Maybe one of them Nostradamas (sp?) things.
