    Adding an other 12v outlet

    Look under the dash in front of the steering wheel. There are 4 threaded studs. Some are always on, others are switched on with ignition. Check with a volt meter to figure out which is which. I believe the X75 terminal is switched. I have added many circuits to these studs. Be sure to...

    intake temp logging?

    I have a front mount intercooler but the map sensor(where the temp sensor is) has been relocated and is on the piping and behind the radiator. In full boost runs, intake air temp(iat) can climb quickly to 110 degrees F and will then slowly increase so your 50 degree C is in a similar range.

    Strange boost behavior

    Hi My Jetta wagon has been giving me unusual boost radings as follows: 1 While towing, when I requested more power and the boost reached 15psi, the boost would drop to 7 or 8 then climb back to 15. 2, Sometimes the boost would then jump to 22 to 25 with the characteristic 17/22 whistling sound...

    Anybody camp in their TDI wagon?

    I camped for a week out of my 2003 wagon. When i removed the rear lower seat cushions the rear seat folds flat. I am 5' 11" and my toes would hang over the end of the seat back but would not touch the front seats. Quite comfortable. Open a window slightly to reduce condensation.

    Bizzare problem

    Hi I see two possible solutions to your problem. 1. the fuel lines are swapped at the attachment to the lift pump. If this has happened the pump will only pull fuel til the level gets to the top of the fuel canister in the tank. to test: when the level in the tank gets to the troublesome...

    BEW Valve Cover

    When I had my 2004 Jetta wagon, the tandem pump was failing. The symptoms were misfiring and shuddering under power up to 2500 rpms. Then it smoothed out and ran normally. This is a problem to keep in mind. As posted earlier it could also be the lift pump that is bad. Good Luck!
