    2015/CVCA Timing Belt

    I'm about to replace the timing belt in my '15 TDI Jetta. However, I can't find any specific How-To's. It's possible I missed them in the search. Can anyone point to an EA288 specific procedure? Or, is it essentially like the CJAA generation? Thanks! Tony

    '06 Jetta Stumble

    My '06 Jetta TDI stumbles up to ~2200rpm. If the RPM's are aboe 2200, i.e. freeway commuting, it runs fine. When running around town, anything <2000rpm, it will randomly stumble. So far, I've only replaced the EGR cooler because that was leaking profusely. I'm trying to differentiate...
