    Idle smooth running control

    Hi. A friend of mine is thinking about buying a (used) VW passat 2002 1.9TDi 4motion 130HK PD engine (don’t know the engine code, but maybe ATM or something, it’s at least the PD 130HK 310NM engine). But I scanned the car, and got some “abnormal” (I think) readings from the “idle speed...
