Are there any pictures on this site depicting the torsion value adjustment process?
I've recently eliminated vibration issues related to poor aftermarket shafts, but have recently noticed a significant drop (1/3) in gas mileage.
Setting Torsion Value
I'm assuming that you check the torsion value w/ the vag-com and then mechanically adjust the setting. Are there any pictures that depict the location of the area where the adjustment is done? Also, is the adjustment done w/ engine running? Sorry if I'm being stupid...
Complete Solution, Almost
After having replaced BSM and engine mounts (all 3), but still suffering the dreaded vibrations, I bought and replaced the Chinese crap aftermarkets w/ Raxles. Vibration gone. The earlier shudder which I attributed to tranny problems was a dirty fuel filter. All is...
Is the DTC a code? I have the Ross software, might it show on that? I'm not sure what TC/TCM mean. I'm having a tranny shop take a look at it tomorrow a.m. If its not the fluid, is a new tranny in order?
I've had so many problems w/ this B5 that its beginning to lose its...
After chipping, the mpg really didn't noticeably change. I used Jeff's std + because I haven't modified anything else. Torque increases to about 300 psi, as I understand it.
However, lately, w/ this shudder, mileage is way off.
Not sure what to make of it.
Same "Bad" Vibrations
Just did this weekend on my way back from Pittsburgh.
As I accelerate or in cruise going uphill, it feels more like a shudder or torque converter slippage.
I have Jeff's rocket chip +, new engine mounts (all 3), new BSM gear driven, but still have Chinese axels in it...
Wondering whether you're open this friday and have a slot for a chip upgrade to my 2005 passat TDI. I'll be in the Lancaster area and would be available early if you have an opening.
I like my new 2005 Passat TDI, but I too have the coolant smell. Do you know a reliable mechanic/dealer locally (I live in Vienna) that you would trust to properly do the core replacement.
Re: First oil change with 2005 Passat TDI.
I just took delivery of my 2005 Passat GLS TDI. I had a 2000 Jetta TDI for which I used Delvac 1 (5-40). Have some left over. Is this no longer the application for the 2005 Passat PD? Some kid at the dealership indicated that they have a new very...
I am intrigued by the apparent refinement and well-balanced performance of the RocketChip. I have a '00 Jetta TDI which I had upsoluted a couple of years ago and for which I have an upsolute tuning box (with wire splice). I have been very happy with it.
I am considering trying the RocketChip...
