    The facility for choosing a ROD file exists for cases when VCDS can't figure out which one it should use. This can occur when a module has been retrofit into a chassis in which it doesn't belong. ...

    No, ""IDE00342" (and similar) are language-independent 'tags' for the strings that VCDS displays. We use VAG's string tags for sort of thing because makes life easier when comparing data that VCDS...

    2008 car with 95,000 miles on it...

    Original coils? If so, I'd probably treat the car to a set of new ones, and probably plugs too.

    2013... Is that an 8P still, or an 8V already? An 8P should not have CP but an 8V will.

    How did the ABS lose its coding?
    What parts have been changed?
    Do the VINs in 01, 17, and 25 match?

    I don't think what you are asking for will help you. The data sources we build the ROD files from generally do not included any coding info for Engine modules, and we can't include something that...

    I've never seen such a thing in any ECU and wouldn't expect to find it in yours either.

    That 5.2 is a V10, right? If so, it has not just one but two ECMs, and in all likelihood, a small plethora of temperature sensors.

    You could start by telling us what versions it has in it now.

    You could also try updating it by connecting it to a PC via USB and using VCIConfig.

    No, none of that the text is read from the car. It comes from VCDS and will vary depending on what language VCDS is being used.
