^^^ There's your problem right there. :P
P1296 is a cooling system fault. Replace the thermostat and temp sensor.
You're driving with no O2 sensor at all? What is there just a big hole...
Well, start by scanning the codes and report back. Not much we can do without that.
Easily. The 2.0 doesn't have a dual mass flywheel.
Nope. MK4's only have one.
Time to get out the wiring diagram.
This. Totally this. How anal do you have to be for this to bother you so much that it's "heinous"?
Just quitchabitchin and run it. They're not going to do anything for you, nor would I expect...
Probably a bad mount somewhere.
Yeah that's normal due to the PCV design. No worries.
ABA has two oil pressure switches. One on the oil filter housing, and one on the cylinder head above the coolant flange. If you replaced one, try replacing the other one.
Quit firing the parts cannon and do some diagnosis.
Do you have spark while cranking? What is the fuel pressure at the rail while cranking?
Yup, you can use an ohmmeter to test the heater circuit on the O2 sensor with the sensor disconnected. I've found that they often go open and create this fault.
Get a Bosch direct-fit sensor or...
Try turning the key in the driver's door (lock then unlock it) and then getting in and cranking it. Or try lock/unlock with the remote before cranking. That should disarm the alarm.
Everything that's required to make the ABA run in a MK3. Harnesses, ECU, fuse box, etc etc.
Just because they click doesn't mean they're good. If the wiring checks out, and the EVAP system is verified to have no leaks, replace the valve with an OE unit.
Oh and a3clusters, yes an...
That too...if you don't have VCDS, wait.
I'm assuming you cleared the code, went through the drive cycle, and the code returned. But we all know what happens when you assume.
The purge valve is supplied battery voltage via the fuel pump relay. It is supplied PWM ground by the ECU.
Yes you can put 12v to it if you remove it from the car. Take a mityvac and apply...
Scan for codes. Check for vacuum leaks.
Sounds like a bad ignition coil to me.
Stock. I can't say it enough. Stock. Stock. Stock.
The fancy colored hard mounts create so much vibration they're not worth it unless we're talking about a dedicated track car.
