2006: Purchased a 2006 Jetta TDI BRM sitting on a used car lot with 16,000 miles. 5 speed manual. Car looked and smelled new. The lot owner drove it to my work and told me car still under warranty, etc. These vehicles were hot and in short supply as fuel prices were going up. I had a...
Tools in Sump All Gone
Recovered all the parts with a magnet during an oil change. Oil Pan was recently pulled for another job and nothing was found. So I must have fished them all out during the oil change.
Still have 4 injectors looking for someone to rebuild them.
Mechanic says he has my stalling issue fixed. After changing fuel filter -nofix, pressure regulator-no fix. I convinced him to install an OEM lift pump I was saving. He was sure that wasn't it because he could hear the pump working and it filled the filter housing. But then he noticed that the...
Manual says the ESS is located under oil filter a little to the driver's side. Quick update I have my TDI at the shop now as it is too annoying to drive in traffic anymore with the stalling. It will get worse. Still no codes being thrown. Money pit time? I told them to keep it for a week...
The temp was 82 F this weekend. I drove around for almost an hour with the Vagcom connected. Lift pump is working fine- squirts fuel out of the fuel filter when you turn on the key (no engine running). I could only get it to stall once with A/C running. Set no new codes. Vagcom did have 3...
Going to change lift pump this weekend and check for chaffed wire on Engine Speed sensor. I'll also do the vagcom thing and see if it sees anything. I did manage to stall once with A/C off this week. So it isn't a cureall to drive around hot. After that I'll check the air flapper. I think...
Stalling on 2006 Jetta TDI
I'm having identical problem. Let me know if you find a solution and I'll do the same. Mine dies when coasting to a stop with clutch pushed in. Otherwise runs fine. I'll check with Vagcom this week and start changing parts until solved. I'm starting with the lift pump...
Now my 2006 Jetta is doing the stall game
Pretty repeatable. Stall when pushig in the clutch coasting to stop light. Only does it with A/C on. Wonder if my compressor is dragging. Can you guys check if your will only stall with A/C on?
I had been running with an injector errorcode P0272, etc. for a while and tried everything to fix it. Finally bit the bullet and installed a set of used injectors out a head with bad camshaft. That fixed it. No more error codes. Two questions.
I have a feeling that there is nothing wrong with...
I bought a set of used injectors and installed them. All is well now. Runs like new. Only thing, I dropped a 1/4" and 12 point socket into the engine and can't fish it out with a magnet. Hope it doesn't find the oil pump or something like that.
VCDS Exact Codes
For Christmas I got the real Ross-Tech cable. Here are the codes I'm dealing with. Does this Help? I've had the engine harness checked by mechanic - no broken wires. Car runs fine until it warms up and computer starts making adjustments. Runs fine again if you turn key...
Fuel Pressure Checks Ok - Can I get Someone with a 2006 to check volts
I did the fuel pressure and flow checks today and they were all good.
Can I get someone with a 2006 Jetta to please unscrew the injector plug to the head next to the tandem pump and check the voltages with the key...
Plug Voltage / Ohm Testing
I unscrewed the injector plug and tried to do voltage / ohm checks on the list provided. May be I'm doing something wrong because I'm not getting the values in the write-up.
Key off. pins 2-7 resistance to Ground - no reading OK that matches
Key off. pins 2-7...
I haven't had time to do the jiggle test. But I'd like to understand a little better where this is heading.
Can you help me with the wiring? Looking at the engine from the front. Are the only wires that go to the injectors running through the plug that unscrews from the head...
Numbers don't read well on posting try this:
Worst readings were from injector 1 to 4
The readings at idle were when the engine first start are:
Injector Readings Field 13
Start up at idle. Everything fine. mg/str whatever that means
Driving down road after warm up - starts to shudder goes into limp home:
Worst readings I see during the trip:
Turn key off and on quickly at...
