    Need help with 04 jetta with 5-6 mpg loss

    Unplugging a vacuum hose will almost always lead to trouble in my opinion. The proper way would be with a vag-com. Read this from the tdi faq

    Details on the Golf TDI BlueMotion

    Yes i did actually, but behind a Semi is one thing, its another having a pesci little prius on your tail that doesn't want to back off. I did however try to scare him a little when i decided i would randomly brake rather hard, he backed off for a mile or so then was back at it. lol.

    Details on the Golf TDI BlueMotion

    LOL exactly. We do however need these high mpg golf bluemotion that have such an awesome fun to drive factor, this way we can avoid getting rear ended by nascar like drafting from the underpowered hybrid driver. i sure hope people aren't practicing this on the roads.

    Details on the Golf TDI BlueMotion

    Ohh.. he was drafting. I've seen the montreal tailgaters and that tailgaiting usually implies a "get out of the way your going to slow", This guy was drafting like he was jeff gordon on a mission. I mean there was hardly any traffic and if i was going slow, (weren't because we were already 20...

    Details on the Golf TDI BlueMotion

    This is not to be taken offensively or anything but just one of my observations while driving. This post isn't directed toward you but just rather a joking comment to your response. ok so..Although i never liked prius's i respected them,but that was until the other day when i got extremely...

    05 golf auto (tiptronic) slipping between shifts?

    Sure thing, I'll have him check it out as soon as possible. Sorry if i sounded rude. Yes i am indeed listening. :P Any other things that should be checked while they are under the hood?

    05 golf auto (tiptronic) slipping between shifts?

    It could shift lower if wanted to. We were just shifting higher than normal because that is his driving style. However whenever chosen to shift at a higher rpm, there is defenite slippage going into the next gear. You can both feel it and hear it in the engine pitch. It can shift as low as you...

    05 golf auto (tiptronic) slipping between shifts?

    should still be, last i checked vw warranty up here is 4 years/80,000km. The problem was really the fact that you could hear the transmission slip between shifts (the revs would actually jump between shifts) and then the car would shift. Does it need a reflash? Could it just be that the...

    05 golf auto (tiptronic) slipping between shifts?

    Hi guys, I drove in my friend's 05 golf gls tdi with auto trans. Tiptronic. and we noticed that between shifts it seems that the transmission is slipping, as i could see on the tach that the rpms would jump between shifts. I believe the car has about 60,000km if i'm not mistaken. I was just...

    Volkswagen recalls nearly 800,000 cars

    I was wondering why my neighbor's 2.0T Jetta was gone and why they were driving their Golf. lol. Responsible of them to do a recall. Something like this could be hazardous.

    VW disbands brand groups

    True, i heard the caliber is getting a diesel as well, and it wouldn't surprise me if somewhere on this board, someone spotted a diesel tdi rabbit being tested somewhere in california. :p

    DSG and Torque?

    I read of the HPA's trio of powerhouse cars (Jetta, Passat, and toureg R GT), and was always curious as to how it was putting that kind of power though the DSG.

    DSG and Torque?

    I believe that the internal clutches of the DSG transmission aren't upgradeable, due in part to the fact that there is no room in the trans for this. If i'm correct, the dsg tramissions offered on the jetta platform are the lower rated (internals) DQ250 DSG box and don't consist of the same...

    Yet Another Diesel Killer?

    Regardless, I don't think we have anthing to worry about here in Canada. I think tdi's make up a large portion of VW sales up here. Even though it would suck to think that this new style might make them pull the plug on tdi's in the states...i doubt VWag would do such a thing. Essentially they...

    Yet Another Diesel Killer?

    Well.. the 2.0T in the Gti and other jetta and passat models have a 10.3:1 compression ratio and specify a 95 PON octane rating unleaded for max efficiency of the engine. However they can successfully consume as low as 91 octane with a decrease in performance. Consequently the highest rating...
