    WTB MK4 Jetta Wagon or Golf TDI

    Just so happens our '06 Jetta TDi package 1 went up for sale today. It's a 5 speed Graphite Blue with about 130K on the clock. I bought it new and my son has been driving it since 2012. The car is exceptionally straight and has been upgraded with the leather seats that were in our other '06 TDi...

    Help Please Engine randomly stalls

    So what happened? I'm having a similar issue and came across you're thread. Did you ever resolve it short of selling the car? I've been trying to solve this VERY intermittent issue on my '06 5 Speed for some time now. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

    Cabin Blower Resistor Pack

    2006 Jetta Package 1. Have just had the third blower resistor pack fuse open where blower 4 setting works but not 1, 2 or 3. After the second incident, replaced the blower and resistor pack. All was well for about 6 months and now have the same issue. Position 1, 2 and 3 out. 4 works fine...

    Discounted TDI oil locator thread

    Not trying to hijack this thread and if it's answered elsewhere please forgive me. What is the advice of the day on oil flavor for my 2006 PD engine. Time for an oil change and can't seem to find any approved oils locally. TSB 2012855/11 from 11/30/2010 had recommended two Mobil one products...

    Castrol 507.00 does not replace 505.01

    Let Reading VW do a 40,000 mile DSG oil change and a 10,000 mile engine oil change. Asked them to put an extra quart in the car. When I read the bottle I realized it was the Castrol LLO3 type. Inquired of the dealer what oil was in the crank case. Confirmed they mistakenly used LL03 and they...

    What can I do with a VAG-COM?

    I have just spent the last hour looking for the vag adjustment for MPG readings on the MFD. Can anyone link me to that info? I know it's here somewhere.

    Trunk Bike Rack KILLS Mileage

    Glad I found this thread. We carried two bikes on the trunk rack from Reading, PA to Williamsburg, VA. At 70 MPH down Rt 95 I was taking at least an 8MPG hit (about 38 MPG) according to the MFD. I got a chance to experiment on the Colonial Parkway which is a 45 MPH mosly flat drive from Yorktown...

    Yeah well Jerry, why don't you send me one of those Passat Diesels from the Continent. That's what I really want! Unavailable in the States.

    rough idle, 5-spd

    Last post to this thread was just after the dealer (Vision, Reading PA) had replaced the flywheel in the spring of '08. Had myself pretty convinced that this was the problem as it felt fine for 6 or 8 weeks. I got a chance to examine the flywheel and I have to admit, there was nothing obvious...

    Sound Off on Current Diesel Price

    Don't forget, if you have access to Hess Diesel, they offer a 5% discount (10% for the first 90 days) on their credit card on all your fuel purchases. So that means the pump price here in PA is 4.389 is then really "ONLY" about 4.15. What a bargain.

    rough idle, 5-spd

    Here's my update. As mentioned previously, my "lumpy Idle" occured intermittantly since new, probably less than 5% of the time. Lately it was becomming more frequent and more pronounced. At all other times, it idles smooth as a sewing machine. So now I have a new flywheel, clutch and bearing...

    rough idle, 5-spd

    Well, inspection has revealed a defective flywheel. It should be swapped out by tomorrow. Since the car runs like a sewing machine 99% of the time (although it got progressively worse), I am hopeful this is the problem with mine. I'll report results soon.

    rough idle, 5-spd

    Took the car in on Monday and of course it failed to misbehave. Today as I was driving passed the dealer I took a chance and sure enough I was able to demonstrate the problem to the service manager. Now I have an appointment for Monday for them to remove the starter and have a look at the...

    rough idle, 5-spd

    Due to the lack of activity on this thread, I am wondering if anyone has come up with anything definitive on this issue. My 5 speed has had Lumpy Idle from day one albeit infrequently and very light. Now with 26,000 miles it is more frequent and pronounced. Are there any solutions out there?
