    Can I realistically clean my DPF?

    Doesnt the DEF injection help keep it clean? I wonder if you added Seafoam to the DEF tank if that would do anything.

    Failing Shift Lever Micro Switch

    Hi all, In 2019 VAG issued a recall: 37M2 for failing Shift Lever Micro Switches in 2015-2019 Golf and 2017-2019 GSW. Mine is a 2015 GSW and now has this intermittent error message. Has anyone else with a pre-2017 GSW had this issue and will VAG repair it under the recall?

    Yep. 2013 JSW. Same icing issue every winter. This time I drained over a cup of water from my downpipes. Then I removed my glow plugs and cranked the motor to blow out any water. I used a .22 cal cleaning rod and brass brush tip to clean the glow plug chamber. Then cleared any code before...

    Hey all. My daughter took her 2013 JSW in for a regular oil change and the tech said that she had a secondary oil leak under where the oil filter housing is. Sounds odd to me. Any ideas?
