Are you sure the noise isn't a failed injector seal causing it to vent the compression and exhaust out the hole above the exhaust manifold. This would sound exactly like a manifold leak, but replacing the manifold would not fix this.
Just did service on a new to me 2006.5 car, have no idea when the last filter change was, but we found the same thing. Pitting and rust. I've never seen this in any of the other TDIs all others have the older style 2 hole filters.
I replaced my clutch and flywheel with a valeo single mass setup about 6 months ago. My idle is smoother than it has ever been and I haven't had a single second with rough idle that has plagued my car for 11 years. The torsion value seemed to make it a lot better but it has never been perfect...
I got the letter. Just inspected my harness, I haven't had mine fail yet, but this is probably due to the fact that I am only up to 84k miles. I wish I'd found at least 1 chaffed or cracked wire in the harness, I should still be under the warranty extension until Dec 6th, but I don't think I...
I have a flashlight with 3 T6-XML Cree bulbs in it and it is super bright. If I could find an H7 with one of these behind a projector I think it would be better then the Q5 Cree. I Don't really use my high beams and don't care for the color match of the halogens in there against my HID low...
While sitting next to my car I just noticed something that I had overlooked in the 7.5 years I have owned my car. This could've came in handy a few times. If you undo the top of the hood strut and open the hood past it's normal open position, there is are holes on each hinge that line up to...

Between my brothers, and friends we have 4 2006 TDIs, 2 have RC 1+ and 2 have Malone Stage 1 tunes. The RC tunes definitely have more get up and go but they are also a lot smokier tune. I have had the RC 1+ tune since TDIFest 2010, and it is nearly impossible to take off with more than 1/2...
I first noticed a bad rattle about a month ago and just got around to looking at it while I was putting in a ZeroStart heater last night. I am glad this was simple to fix, and even more glad that I don't have to listen to that terrible rattle every time I take off in 1st.
If anyone else is has a rattle in the front wheel, inner fender area check this out. On my car The plastic anchor that the screw pictured below goes into had completely pulled out of the metal on both sides of the car causing the inner fender and lower shroud to be loose and rattle.

Yeah, it isn't against the law to fill a diesel in Oregon, just a gasser.
+1 for the GTG, don't know if I will be having anything done. Maybe 60k service, I am a couple hundred over right now. I might switch to the TDT this time since I am finally out of warranty.
I am also looking for the...
The MKV Jetta is about the same size as a B5.5 Passat There are ups and downs to both cars, In my opinion my 06 Jetta has a lot more road noise then my B5 had, The 4 link suspension in the B5 also makes the handling on the Passat amazing, but the ball joints are also non-grease able so you will...
