    Would you buy your Diesel wagon again?

    I loved the torque of the diesel but can't say I was that fond of the wagon. It went to a small family that could use it better than me and I still got 150k miles out of it. Between the clutch going early, sunroof drains leaking, intake valve, DPF problems, etc, I can't say I was happy with...

    MY2010 Bosch HPFP

    Agreed, that is a myth. Bosch actually to change the HPFP to try and make it last. There is a reason the warranty was extended to 120,00 miles. Because some of the earlier HPFP's had issues. Yours is in the earlier range and I would highly recommend a 2micron filter (If you don't have one) if...

    loss of power after HpFp replacement

    Or full of metal from the HPFP. You can usually find them on Ebay for about $125 each, way cheaper than the dealer. Just remember to write down the code for each injector and which position you put them in the car. You will need VCDS to correctly install the injectors. Other things to...

    Not sure what to do

    Agreed, it would cost more than the car is worth to install a fix. Gen1 buybacks will go to the crusher. To the OP, as mentioned already, don't skimp on the maintenance. You are due for a timing belt now. As the saying goes, if you don't make time for maintenance, your equipment will make...

    2MicronTech billet aluminum contain kit. A must for those with a 2009-2012 2.0 TDI. The HPFP has been a known issue in these years of cars, hence the extended warranty to 120,000 miles. Installation of this kit will contain any metal particles in the high pressure section of the engine and not...

    RCD 300 Broken?

    As the germans would say, its kaput. Unless you are into working on electronics, not a lot you will be able to do. My radio kept giving me an CDC HARDWARE fault. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I finally pulled it out and bought a decent Alpine, way cheaper than getting a...

    Is my 2009 CR about to die from HPFP ?

    It could very well be a spot of bad fuel causing you this issue. If you could do an OBD scan, see if there is an P0087 code in the memory. That is the low fuel rail/system pressure fault code. If you are getting that, your HPFP could be going bad. Also open the fuel filter housing and see if...

    Fixing HPFP Failure as cheaply as possible....

    I have done this job, it can be a pain. Easiest way to complete this is to replace the HPFP and flush the fuel tank and lines. See if someone can loan you the timing tools and go to town.
