    turbo overboost

    I continue to get P0234 turbo overboost and limp mode faults for the last 3 years. It wasn't much a problem when I lived on the flatter east coast, but this summer I moved to New Mexico in the Rockies where the speed limits are 75 so now it happens frequently.

    high cetane vs b20

    I have been using B20 for a few months and initially I was getting a lot of black smoke when starting the engine for the first time of the day. I was previously using a BP premium diesel with a high cetane rating, and never noticed any smoke. I still see the smoke occasionally when accelerating...

    1st time vag-com

    i got a steady mil indicator light, so i hooked up the vag-com for the first time to read the code. I ran the auto scan on 1j - vw g/j/b mk4 (assuming no specificity for tdi.)

    headrest stuck

    03' jetta wagon passenger headrest is stuck in the upper most position. I think the button is working fine, because the bar on the side of the button slides up and down a bit. Its the bar on the non-button side that isn't budging. The driver side works well, so it can't be that they got...
