    Racing idle

    I have to borrow a vag-com I’ll have it in a few days. Everything I did was guess work. I didn’t realize what I was getting into. Just like anything else, I keep going until I figure it out. I’m just trying to get it back to stock settings. 🤞I appreciate every bit of info I get in this forum. 🙏

    Where should it be idling?

    Racing idle

    After some patience, I got it to smooth out and idle right at 900 rpm. It’s extremely sensitive, but I seem to have better performance after replacing those gaskets. Thank you for your help!

    Adjusting Engine Idle Speed - 101

    Thank you. I got it running without increasing rpm, but now the idle is rough. Besides that it’s running great.

    Rough idle

    I replaced the two main gaskets on injector pump, and it’s running great, just a rough idle. I’m not sure what I did to make it idle like this. Also it’s sitting at 1k rpm when idling. I’m lost?????

    Adjusting Engine Idle Speed - 101

    99 ALH here, I replaced the 2 cover plate gaskets on the injector pump, and now my idle just keeps going up. I have to shut it off to keep it from increasing the idle. Any thoughts on what I did wrong?

    Valve cover gasket

    Amazon sells a gasket, but it’s not recommended to replace it. It’s supposed to be a permanent gasket. If the gasket is like mine and in pieces, the Valve cover should be replaced. AUTOHAUZ AZ sells new ones for $75.00

    Cylinder head removal

    I dropped off the head at German Auto in Phoenix. They are tdi specialists. Everyone in my area says if I don’t bring it to them I’m an idiot. Lol. Should be a week before I get it back.

    Cylinder head removal

    Coolant pressure being forced back into the bottle. I changed timing belt and water pump, thermostat, radiator, and heater core. After all that it was still displacing coolant. When I pulled the head , the gasket was shot.
