Olalla,Hey guys. New here. It's been a while since I've been in a forum so I'm sure I'll hit some snags as I re-learn this stuff. I have 2 TDIs.
When my 1st TDI (99.5J) was new I got a similar code. It went away and never returned.New to the gang...I bought a ‘14 Jetta TDI with 105k miles on 10/8. Yesterday the CEL came on with a P2015 code. My daughter is driving the car and stated the light went away. Any insight???
Welcome aboard. You don't have to limit yourself to 99.5-01 for an ALH, they actually were in the MKIVs 99.5-03. 350K KM is nothing to those motors if they're looked after (400K miles is becoming quite common). If you do find one, be prepared to do a full timing belt kit on it ASAP unless you get unimpeachable documentation that it's been done within the last 5 years/100K miles by a reputable mechanic.Hello I signed up a while ago, and it looks like I never posted. I am from Canada, I am looking at buying a Jetta or Passat diesel for the fuel mileage. Everything around here has 300k km. I lost my notes on those vehicles, only thing that rings a bell is ALH engines from '99? to '01? and some parts can be really expensive so I need to look into that. Tempted to just rebuild the engine on anything I buy because I dont want to deal with things later.
The vehicle will be with me for 3 years at a minimum whether I like it or not but I dont plan on driving to much, just a few long country wide road trips to get driving back into my system. But when in the city, probably just use my ebike like I've been doing last few years.
I used to love driving, loved country drives with no where to go, would drive aimlessly in the big city.
I figure I will look for something in the 250-350,000 km range. My usual is to look for rusted out vehicles because they are cheap, could always find a diamond in the rough. Everyone wants new, been tempted myself but cant afford. Might buy off a used stealership lot to get financing and rebuild my credit (at a cost, stealership premiums, interest rates).
Enough of my ramblings. ALH 99-01 probably passat bigger but less mpg. We will see.
