      Yes. mk4 and mk5. If the reset is done and you still have issues, then you have issues that a reset won't fix. Get to someone/someplace with VCDS and a proper code readout.

      Hi. As I always say, it can't hurt to try. My opinion is to run VCDS and see if you have shortages in the ecu and tcu. It may explain some of your symptoms. But, again, the reset can only help. If it...

      Message me. I just moved here and very familiar with vr6s. In fact, I just did a timing chain on mine 4 days before I moved. Works perfect. I live on the westside.

      No pics, but drove car today! All seems fine, once I diagnosed a misfire that seemed to move around, even after new ignition parts.

      Yes. I plan on getting a real 1 piece chain this week. If that was the actual failure point, I certainly don't want to do this again.

      That's what I thought at first also, but the inner intermediate sprocket turns perfectly and freely. There is no grab.

      Thanks, german2sn. I have not had a 12v in a couple years, as I've had 2 1.8t...

      After reexamining it again just now, all curiosities point to that loose upper tensioner rail pivot pin. When I unscrewed it (by fingers, as it was very loose), I noticed that there was a wobble in...

      It's hard to tell. All guides and rails were hardly worn, indicating a recent maintenance. The lower parts were spotless! The chain just snapped and not even at the rivet junction. Just in half! Top...

      Mystery of the broken timing chain

      Simply put...I am working on my 01 vr6 that I bought with possible broken chains. Once the upper cover was off, it was evident. Fast forward to today...I removed lower cover to see exactly what had...

      Your surge is due to a different reason. Your transmission needs to be read with vcds. You may need maintenance on fluids/filter/solenoids.

      Yes. The transmissions are the same. The real difference is that a TDI does not have a "throttle body", but it does have equitable input sensors that function the same. For the purpose of this...

      As stated in the very beginning, this only helps once verified by vcds that a solenoid is bad or temp sensor code from the tcu reappears after clearing and fluid level checks. Please get a vcds code....
