    VW Still Believes In Diesels; Unveils New 2.0 TDI Mild Hybrid

    Wasting money? We already have stockpiles of fuel for latest generation nuke reactors in the form of "nuke waste". Building these plants kills two birds with one stone. Nuke power is the safest form of power we've ever made. And they produce power WHEN it is needed. As for its cost, a good bit...

    2011 JSW radio went dark

    Would be happy with a direct replacement, but it seems these things have a habit of dying. Should I just spend a little more and go aftermarket? Wouldn't mind adding a backup camera, actually. Maybe I'll stop backing into things!

    VW Still Believes In Diesels; Unveils New 2.0 TDI Mild Hybrid

    Been a while since I checked in on this thread. Has there been any further discussion of a hybrid diesel? Seems to me that VW has gone all in on the EV bandwagon. Still want to know where we are going to get all the raw materials for the trillions of lithium cells we are talking about? Or the...

    WTB: RCD 510 Premium 8 replacement

    Mine died. Would like something that I can plug in and use all wheel buttons. Aftermarket is fine, preferred actually as it seems these things dying is normal.

    2011 JSW radio went dark

    Anyone out there have one they'd part with at a reasonable price? Mine is muti-cd. Would like one with a CD, but no need for multi disk as I rarely listen to them. Would consider diskless as well.

    2011 JSW radio went dark

    Yesterday afternoon while driving on the interstate for a few hours my radio appeared to lose power with no warning. One minute I am listening to a youtube podcast on phone through bluetooth, the next moment, nothing. No lights at all on radio. Did some research on internet. I checked the 15A...

    P2002 code yesterday

    Any recommendations of local mechanics. I brought it to 413 Auto shortly after buying it just to do an oil change and give it a once over. He seemed pretty adamant about keeping it all stock, even after the warranty runs out. I see People's Auto in Somers listed also. Only about 15 minutes away...

    P2002 code yesterday

    Is MIL just another name for CEL? I am unfamiliar with the acronym.

    P2002 code while driving last night

    Looks like I made a redundant thread. The other one already has a reply, so can a mod please flush this one or tell me how I can? I see how to edit, but not delete.

    P2002 code yesterday

    Read codes at AZ this morning. It cleared the CEL. 154K miles, '11 JSW 6MT Should I expect it to come back? Any advice appreciated. I did get a new intake from VW under warranty at about 120K last fall. Pretty sure I'm out of warranty, so I am open to mods, mainly for mpg, reliability...

    P2002 code while driving last night

    Near the end of about a 550 mile day I got a CEL maybe about 10 miles after filling up the tank. Took it to AZ this morning and pulled the codes. P2002. Scanning it reset the CEL. Haven't driven a lot, maybe 25 miles since with no recurrence. It is an '11 JSW 6MT. 154K miles. VW replaced the...

    P2002 code

    I have an '11 Sportwagen 6MT. 154K miles. Got a CEL last night. Had the codes read at AZ this morning. P2002. Plugging in the scanner cleared the CEL. Hasn't come back yet, but it's only been driven maybe 25 miles. I was under the impression that I am off warranty, but after reading this...

    '11 JSW 6MT 120K miles. Time for a tune/delete?

    SS, hi. Looks like the Kerma non-delete may be the way to go. Are you doing it soon? If you do, would like to see how it does. Maybe a little Kerma v stock drag race!!!

    '11 JSW 6MT 120K miles. Time for a tune/delete?

    Haven't had any dpf issues yet, but I do make it a regular habit to see 4K during onramp 3rd gear pulls or other long uphill stretches. Haven't pulled a trailer yet, although I do have a hitch to put on and a utility trailer. So I will be doing some trailer pulls for just the reason I see...

    '11 JSW 6MT 120K miles. Time for a tune/delete?

    Just got a new intake courtesy of VW warranty (P2015 code). I plan to do the dieselgeek fix to avoid future P2015 issues. I am also considering a tune/possible delete as I think I am about out of warranty. Everytime I try to read the warranty definition, I just get a headache! Can someone...

    Check engine light P2015

    Just got a new manifold at 120K under warranty after getting the dreaded P2015. Plan on doing the fix soon. I have seen what appear to be knock offs of the dieselgeek fix for less. Has anyone used these? The DG fix really isn't that expensive and I believe is American made, so I will...

    Improved mpg after new intake?

    Just got a new intake on my '11 JSW 6MT, by Lia VW, warranty coverage, after P2015 CEL. Kudos to Lia!!!! The first dealer I called said it wouldn't likely be covered. They are in Enfield, Ct. Yesterday on a drive I make frequently, I did a fair bit better than usual for that drive according to...

    Time to delete/tune?

    Hope I get that sort of mileage out of mine! Have you done any other mods or deletes? How is fuel mileage and power at 400k? I would expect a little compression loss by that time.
