    I will do a compression check sometime soon, as it isn't a pressing matter at the moment. I have other projects and commitments needing my attention, now that my favorite car is running well. ...

    Some may perceive you that way, but you're not afraid to say what you think, and I respect that. You've helped me considerably in the past.

    Jack,

    I can answer some but not all your questions.

    Where or what system would you suspect getting FOD? Perhaps the cam chain tensioner gave up? As far as having more power, I read a lot...

    As stated earlier, MAF was cleaned last week and not connected during auto scan. It is not suspect at this point. Iíll check the low pressure fuel pump. Plugs look very lean to me.

    Are you saying oven cleaner will work?

  13. Fuel Pressure Sensor Fault after R&R Intake Manifold

    I recently bought a 2007 GTI Fahrenheit and decided to pull the intake and clean the ports. They had a ton of crap in them, so I don't think it had ever been done. I have done this before on...

    Last Post on this. I hate when a thread like this has no conclusion, so here it is. The new owner is better at diagnosis than I am and he traced the wiring, finding no fault. He said he replaced...

    If 5V is the correct voltage to this sensor, where can I pick that up? Will I kill it if I connect to a 12V source?

    I did verify cold then hot oil pressure by letting the car warm up in my driveway. That's why it went from 66 to 34 psi at idle and 69 to 66 psi at 2K rpm. I'm pretty sure it was warmed up to...

    Timing has been checked repeatedly and is good. Sensors are new and have been checked. The fault is intermittent. Could it be oil related? I'm using Mobil1 5W30. Would it help to change to 5W40?...

    There is no repair? There is, but it's complex and/or expensive?
