      Age and mileage considered it might be good to stick to whatever you have used in the past. After all, it's worked so far right? Additive packages, or lack of, can affect the seals, the fabled 'leaks...

      Good Deal?

      Just passing this along. I have no connection with this vendor beside being a customer. I looked around and couldn't beat this deal for my 2014 2.5L. Some may find it helpful. Carry on.:)

      The pan gasket is reusable, it's also not a costly item but depending on your budget you can get away with it. The filter is going to be a surprise. After researching my 09G and ordering the correct...

      Interesting. It claims to have VW TL774F but it also says it is ethylene glycol based and nowhere mentions G-11 / G-13. It might be fine but I'd opt for PENTOFROST on sale or the dealer option.

      Some cheaper Infrared thermometers do not have an adjustment for Emissivity or EMS. Either that or an incorrect EMS setting can throw your reading off if you are not aware of it. Try setting...

      Agreed, if these are accurate readings the system seems to be overcharged. Pressures should look more like THIS. Did they indicate that the fans have failed? This sounds a bit sketchy. I'd go find...

      Check your work once more. For the injector voltage make sure all the injectors are disconnected from their electrical connectors. One faulty [grounded] injector or lead will cause the voltage drop...

      The 09G with MAN/PDW code takes filter 09G325429B the B being the critical identifier. There is a very similar 09G325429A which at first glance looks to be the same but is not as wide across its...

      It's a mileage driven reminder that can be reset by following the procedure HERE or drop by the Dealer as they forgot to do this.

      The CTS and thermostat are the lucky fixes. It may also have a failing water pump. The impeller can develop hairline cracks around the shaft causing it to slip. A broken fin or two is not out of the...
