    2009-2010 theories on HPFP failures + water contam'd diesel

    Diesel fuel, made up primarily of hydrogen and carbon, and impurities such as sulfur, has several different roles which include: Cooling Lubricating Cleaning Cooling: Fuel that flows to the injection pump and circulates through the pump absorbs unwanted heat generated by the engine and...

    2009-2010 theories on HPFP failures + water contam'd diesel

    Just an other theory, fuel is getting too hot ? specially for those who like to get their tank to the lowest possible before refueling . We mostly know that the fuel return line is getting excess warmed up fuel from HPFP to the tank , when the fuel volume in the tank is too low... it may...

    German Castrol Syntec 0w30

    Very good oil, seriously, I used it in my old 2001 ALH TDI with impressive results for the cost of this oil. Any oil would give me creamy goo under my oil cap in the winter because my commute was too short for the engine to warm up completely. The GC was the only oil to prevent that. I swear...

    Fuel additives

    If you read the label on a Powerservice bottle , It says that the additive will not harm diesel oxydation catalyst and diesel particulate filter. Then It also recommend the mix wich should be about 125 ml of additive per tank assuming that there is already some treated diesel left in your...

    Is it the V-Power or time to change the filter?

    I filled up with V-power a few times, and every time my TDI was a little smoother with a little more power. So I would not think that your problems are fuel related, You should change your air and fuel filter, pour some power service additive and then perform a good Italian tune-up.

    Mobil T.D.T. 5W-40 approval?

    Energy wise to VW is save on fuel, but being detrimental to engine life. How much energy is used to produce a new engine, how much pollution is made by oil burn off ?

    High oil consumption in winter but not summer?

    The Castrol 5w50 is not certified for TDI , you'd be better using Castrol syntec 0w30 wich is certified VW 505.00 for your TDI.

    09 Jetta TDI fuel filter you do not want to see!!

    Would it be wise to create a fuel system saver mod ? what I mean is installing a fuel filter (maybe a gasser type) on the return line so in the event of HPFP failure all the metal shrapnels would be block in the return line filter preventing the entire fuel system contamination .

    Ice build-up over exaust tip

    So here's the story, I did a 600 km trip in - 20 c , after the trip I noticed a big ice build up just over the exaust tip on the bumper. I never saw that on any of my previous cars , I'm amazed how much H20 is cumming out of that tail pipe.

    Any DMF failure in '09+ 6MT yet?

    I would guess that the clutch/transmission combo is the same as the euro spec 2.0 TDI wich has 280 lbs/ft of torque.

    Hi folks, So here it is, people have a tendency of writting threads when something goes wrong... but what about when everything is fine ? So if you had your 2009 TDI for a whole year or more (no matter what milleage) and had never experienced any mechanical issue of any kind related to the...

    HPFP failure while using additives?

    I think that sometimes too much of a good thing is bad. Putting lubricity additive all the time may cause more problems then solve. here's a quote frome Petro-Canada's website. Does Petro-Canada diesel fuel contain a lubricity additive? All Petro-Canada diesel fuels have suitable lubricity...

    You think you have poor fuel economy ?

    My personal average with my 09 Jetta tdi is close to 35 mpg, I was a little bit disapointed. But, as a fireman, at my fire station we have a 09 Dodge ram 2500 with the cummins 6,7l with dpf. The truck only do suburb driving and it averages 8,7 mpg... :D that fuel millage should be...
