    No start

    "I seen a small puff of smoke come out of the starter solenoid" Have you tried to turn the engine manually to make sure it is not locked up? Any chance some debris entered the engine when you cleaned the EGR? I feel a Jack FOD coming n. Regards HMC

    Fault codes

    I do not see a B1S1 code? Is the car running to cool, thermostat issue? Why would an adapter taking the B1 S2 O2 sensor out of the gas stream fix those codes? Test and replace as needed. Regards HMC

    Help needed after changing fuel filter on my 2011 VW Golf 1.6 TDI Bluemotion
