CRP deals in a ton of OE automotive parts. They also make the factory DSG fluid for VW. Having them as a sponsor will give us access to more information about fluids than I would ever get from VW.

Hi Mr Humble
Like many found your shit while surfing the net and glad I did, while your site didn’t actually cure the issue I was having with a customers VW Jetttttaaaaaaa, it sure helped.
this may be of interest to you, I was chasing a P2293 and 171 507 and I think a 174 code on a 2006 Jetta GLI, I had replaced the ‘Low Pressure’ fuel pump and also the high pressure pump cam follower (that’s where you helped), BUT because I am a small business (just me) I cannot afford all the diagnostic equipment that Mr VW can, so I sent the customer to Mr VW to diagnose the problem, they assured her it was the Vacuum pump, so I purchased and fitted it and sent her on her way, oh shit phone call check engine light back on, when I checked the 2293 code had gone but not the others, why am I not surprised VW screwed a customer !!!
Going to RockAuto I purchased and ‘upgraded’ stethoscope which has a funnel on the end, with my new super duper tool I traced a leak on the PCV (yeah that plastic piece of shit on the intake manifold.
THE PROBLEM IS NOW CURED NO MORE CHECK ENGINE.
Just thought you might like to know and maybe pass on.
