      Its not something that happens immediately. It depends on various factors. Mine came on a week or so after I had mine installed. I just got it tuned out.

      If its a high flow cat, that is likely your problem right there. I know mine threw a P0420 code when I installed it.

      You also should check your O2 sensors.

      I wouldn't say common, but its not unheard of for sure. The HPFPs are very, very sensitive. Get a bad batch of fuel or too much biodiesel and you're likely to ruin the pump. A failed pump usually...

      Our '01 Jetta does not have them. Must be a mid year addition for '01.

      You might have some luck in The Car Lounge. Lots of people in there with some random knowledge that may know what this is.

      Based on the OP using KMs, I doubt they are in the US ;)

      I would also say that you just purchased it and its not broken in yet. Once it gets broken in, the mileage will improve.

      I've been around the Beetle community for 9+ years and its not something I've heard of. I think the Jetta cluster is longer than a Beetle cluster. You'd be making a whole new dash.

      The Passat would be a 1Z. Not sure if you can just take an updated harness and attach it.

      You may want to check out TDIClub and post in their conversion section. Lots of very knowledgeable people...

      No need to remove the radio to fix the immobilizer, at least that I'm aware of. You'll need VAG-TACHO to get the key code and then VAG-COM to match the code with the immobilizer and you'll be in...

      I learned on a '69 Beetle. Didn't have a license or anything yet so I was stuck in a driveway, only getting into 2nd gear. But my first car 2 years later was a manual. No automatics for me :cool:

      I would think about the clutch, as someone else said. You also might want to start with going through the shift linkage. My husband had a 5-speed Passat and getting into 1st was a nightmare - had to...

      My dad is sort of into them. He used to race stock cars on local tracks so he's got some car enthusiast in him for sure. :thumbup: But I'm the one who is really into cars. I grew up watching all...

      If its been poorly maintained, I'd go through and just do a full tune up - new plugs and wires for sure. Coil could be the problem - they are known to crack and cause misfires. You can mist a little...
