      Thanks Izzo for the reply. I will try to pull it back where it belongs and check on this harness to make sure there is no short in the wires.

      Help! What is that?!

      Hi,

      Can someone tell me what is this part and what role it serves?

      This thing seems like a small motor and it keeps running well after the car is shutdown. I thought it was circulating the...

      The thing is that the air flow gets lower BEFORE the engine RPM starts dropping. See the readings below:

      I assumed it was air flow because of the MAF readings:
      when the engine is going to stall, the mass airflow measured by the MAF sensor is lower than it should be (car's idling). As a result the...

      What governs the air flow uphill the MAF?

      Hi everybody! :wave:

      My problem is simple:
      The air flow measured by the MAF suddenly drops for a second or two and eventually makes the engine die.

      The MAF is not faulty (replaced with a new...

      The problem is definitely not solved by unplugging the FPR vacuum line.

      Another 150 miles and then the engine died at a stop.
      15 miles later it was while cruising at 50 mph, the revs would not go up. :banghead::banghead::banghead:

      Very nice pic!! :laugh:

      About the TB, I really hope this solves the problem for you, but for me it did not:

      I finally disconnected the vacuum line from the fuel pressure regulator and duct-taped it. Since then I drove about 200 miles and the car did not stall. A couple times it stuttered while I was...

      Andy,

      You are indeed right, I meant swapping and not really flashing! :) Thanks for the link.

      Flashing ECM

      Hi there,

      I may have a faulty ECM (Engine Control Module) on my 2000 GTI VR6 and was considering replacing it.
      I wanted to buy a used one (same car, same engine, same year, same tranny...), but I...
