    Which WSC should I use? another thing I wanted to know but couldn't find is how to change the date as the faults are never correct.

    2 liters in 5k........?

    UNACCEPTABLE!

    Okay Jack, always learning here and would like some input. As I state I own 2 VW, but don't work on them for a living. I do however take about 40 hours a year of ongoing tech training along with ATE seminars, and not does not me an expert, but seeing a trend here. What if does do, is make me aware of just what I don't know, hurts sometimes. These are part of my ongoing training as a company maintenance mechanic but mostly on diesel, but some gas operated sales rigs.

    Just finished 6 hours on Chev ECO Tech motors, and seems this is quite common whether Subaru, VW, all of them seem to when striving for fuel mileage to meet all the CARB requirements are using oil. Chevy ECO TECH say 1.5 liters of oil per 2000KM normal. The sad part here is the system only holds 4.6 quarts, OKAY, liter very close to a Quart for argument sake. But They state change oil at 7500 miles, and if your using 1.5 qts (near a Litre) per 2000, you are technically out of oil long before an oil change. If you are not Johnny at the rat hole which most owners aren't this car just melted down.

    Okay back to the subject, seeing complaints on all models mostly newer than 14, but oil consumption of what is seen here does not seem to be out of the normal, and from what I have been told a lot of it has to do with lighter ring pressures trying to remove resistance. OKAY, not sure of everything I'm taught, but all of it is trying to be proactive, but just seeing oil consumption as a normal trend, exacerbated by turbos, PCV systems, HPP, all creating a night mare, JMO.

    By the way, like this site, and would not own a VW without it.

    We removed it to check physically and all looks good, if we had fuel with the oil the fuel level would "raise" or be higher not the engine consuming oil and beeping that it needs more. Will ask the guys if they checked the spring but double checking doesn't harm anybody.

    Well let us perform silent meditation and theorize that a spring breaks and it doesn't leak internally but doesn't ramp up either and could explain the lift pump duty cycle climbing........

    This Gti is fitted with 4 wire after cat sensor? The voltage then should run around 0.45V. If the ECU does not see this it will think something is wrong with the cat and will make the ECU send rich command to try and protect the cat. Lean readings for ECU will damage the cat.
    Replace the cat.
