    Clutch pack & Flywheel Suppliers

    I replaced my DSG DMF @ 120k miles after I pulled the trans to do the rear main seal. I actually found my original was still in good condition and had about the same amount of play as the brand new one. Didn't really notice any different with the new vs old. I got my OEM LUK one off ebay from a...

    Engine misfiring

    I had a stuck injector once, car was bucking and misfiring bad, lots of white smoke coming out of the xhaust that smelled like fuel, engine bay smelled like fuel. It was obvious because I pulled the plugs and saw one cylinder was wet with gas and could see gas in the cylinder.

    29-31mpg on the highway easily for me but my average is 22 total. City mpg is not that good, never really has been and I don't drive too crazy. 91 oct Stage 2, 2.0 TSI w/DSG. I do a manual calculation at the pump every time and I fill up and I find my mpg average is like 2mpg high on the MFD...

    Blasphemy? Replaced "reds" with Intermotor coils

    If it were me i'd pop the OEMs back in and keep the aftermarkets in the trunk as a spare. I'm sure they will work for some time but id have more confidence in the OEMs lasting longer.

    Implausible Signal

    Low voltage issues can cause all sorts of weird codes but youll usually see it all on the modules. If youre just getting p0121 and p0222 though id say its probably just an issue with that part. There's actually a TSB for faulty wiring to the TB that can cause those two codes.

    BOOST LEAK??? FAILED DV???? vw problems someone help

    Get under the car and check your intercooler piping. Ive had the hoses come off creating a loud wooshing when in boost.

    P0101, P2177, P0420...I give up.

    The rear PCV breather only has one o-ring on the spare one I just checked it. It works with my IE and the Stock intake along with others. Are you pressing the tabs in when putting it in?

    Blinking CEL on startup, then fine

    Scan for codes to see if there's anything else besides misfires. Cold start misfires can be attributed to a lot of things, especially carbon build up.

    P0171, P2187 and P2279...OR...How A Vacuum Leak Has Me Losing My Mind!

    P0171, P2187 and P2279...OR...How A Vacuum Leak Has Me Losing My Mind!

    My trans was leaking oil daily, was throwing codes air related codes, didnt idle well. It was pretty obvious since its a very common issue on the 2.0TSI, if you're leaking oil from the weep hole on the bell housing you've got a bad RMS. I replaced the PCV at the time too since I didn't want to...
