    HPFP Failure...how to get VW to honor their warranty!

    A company willing to cheat federal emissions regulations wouldn't bat an eye cheating an individual - in fact they've been doing it for years!

    How-to : Warm up your TDI in -40 degrees, shown by VW dealer in Canada!

    Well it wouldn't be the first example of incompetence from a VW dealer, eh?

    Ad Blue Total Frustration Adaptive Coding 10a?

    I had fits with mine a few months ago. Filled up the AdBlue before I went on a long trip and 100 miles in the AD Blue system failure light comes on, 200 miles to no start. Drove it 900 miles to my destination straight through without shutting it off. Had VagCom mailed to me where I searched the...

    Ad Blue Total Frustration Adaptive Coding 10a?

    And your dealer sure as sh!t shouldn't have charged you anything. According to the settlement, they are supposed to fill you up with urea for FREE. I'd go back down there and demand my money back, just for SPITE.

    Strange 2015 Touareg TDI Malfunction

    A reasonable person might believe the car, being so smart, would be able to sense the new battery and make the necessary adjustments. I see more and more evidence of automakers using software to sabotage these vehicles all so the unwitting customer must return, wallet in hand, to the thieving...

    It seems like every other station around here says Renewable Diesel now.

    My new to me 16 TDI Touareg

    62k on mine, original pads and rotors. Zero vibration. Looked at the pads last week and while I'm unsure how thick the originals were I'm confident in saying I could pry go another 60k. But then again I don't drive like 'most people.'

    My new to me 16 TDI Touareg

    Good find! Do you mind sharing what you paid? With regard to the fluids...I agree with shortening the OCI. It couldn't hurt. Even still, mine rattled occasionally on startup even with 35k miles on it. I'm at 62k now and it doesn't seem to have gotten worse. Just changed the transfer case and...

    Okay to drive with Reductant Pressure too Low CEL?

    I can't recall exactly how it is reset but I think it is in basic settings. The best info I found on this was in the VagCom forums - lots of helpful stuff in there RE Ad Blue problems. https://forums.ross-tech.com/index.php?threads/16790/

    Void warranty

    Knowing VW, any chance they can get to void a warranty they DO IT.

    2013 Touareg TDI - Reliability / Problem Areas

    Would be a good idea to see what work has been done on the specimen that you're looking at. It may still be under partial warranty from the dieselgate ordeal. Maintenance records would be very important as well. Problem areas: emissions control stuff. DPF and AdBlue systems are problematic...

    Okay to drive with Reductant Pressure too Low CEL?

    Low pressure sounds like a faulty pump, so cleaning the injector probably won't do anything? You'll soon get a warning screen '200 miles to no start.' No kidding. If you have Vagcom you can continue to reset the lockout, but I think each time you do it you'll only have '50 miles to no start.'...

    Anybody use Propel HPR in a BEW....

    My local commercial fuel supplier has gone to B20 and Renewable Diesel in a 'mix of the day' arrangement. I think I read that the Renewble diesel has a cetane almost 10 points above CARB #2. https://downsenergy.com/articles/biodiesel-and-renewable-diesel-product-announcement/ Edit: D2 has a...

    2014 TDI CNRB - overheating "allegedly"

    Thanks for documenting. While it may seem that no one is reading, I've found lots of posts like this over the years associated with a slew of different vehicles that really helps when diagnosing an issue. Here's to hoping it is a cheap sensor. Sounds like thats the case.

    Dorman parts quality

    I stupidly bought a simple clutch cable from them several years ago. It lasted about 1 month before it totally froze up. The original Suzuki part lasted 23 years and I suspect the Suzuki part I replaced it with will last that long as well. Never again!

    DEF in Fuel Tank (FML)

    I'd strongly consider replacing the HPFP as a preventative measure. Water and salt and diesel mixed together, I can't see it living a long life at all.

    103 Miles at 65 MPH in Both Directions

    I, too, have noticed that slowing down really improves MPG. I have a route I drive that takes me to 6-9000 ft in the mountains and despite the big climbs I have always achieved my highest mileage on those routes. 30 even is my best over the course of a full tank hand calculated.

    DEF in Fuel Tank (FML)

    If the car shut itself off, you're in deep. If you shut the car off, its still a mess but not an 8-thousand dollar one.
