Hello y'all, I was looking at the specs for the new CDI oils and they've upgraded from the older .51 to .52
Is there any difference other than a low SAP target?
Take for example LiquiMoly Toltec 4600
It's a 5W-30. Passes dexos2, BMW LL-4, MB229.51& .52

Hello TDI club, I'm shopping for an AGM replacement and came across several references to the Protective Battery Case needed to shield the AGM from heat.
Looking up the part number HQ0-915-411H but nothing *fits* according to the VWPartsComputer.
What gives? Is there a proper shield or...
Seeing a lot of evidence to support the claim that the battery is a link in this chain.
I suppose Step One of this "long crank" problem is to cold-start the engine with a fresh battery (or jump pack) and see if the problem goes away.

Is there a way to datalog the fuel pump and glowplugs with...
The coldstart crank on my GSW has been getting more *sputtery*, in addition to spending more time turning over than I'm comfortable with.
The "press for start for Acc, pedal press 3x, then start" method suggested by JELLOWSUBMARINE has been helpful but not a permanent fix.
Is there a good way...
When you turn a corner at an intersection, the corresponding fog light comes on when you turn the wheel past a certain point.
