      I thought you weren't supposed to do that on cars with mufflers (at least that's what Moroso says in the literature for their crankcase evacuation systems).

      I've had batteries die literally overnight. How old is your battery? If it's older than 5 years, it's probably on its way out.

      How fast you are moving has absolutely no effect on whether the fans run. If your radiator thermoswitch (i.e., fan switch) is closed, you could be going 200 MPH and your fans would still be running.

      I know that VF-Engineering's old Mk3 VR6 Stage II S/C kit used injectors that could not be used in Mk4 12v VR6s, hence my belief that the two 12v engines use different injectors.

      Just FYI, I believe that Mk4 VR6 engines use different injectors than Mk3 VR6s.

      Just FYI, the oil cooler doesn't have any sensors (see the picture at the top of this page). Are you talking about the oil filter housing (see the picture at the top of this page)?

      I understand that you may have a different issue. Just FYI, however, resetting an ECU's idle maps is about what you do once you reconnect the battery, not just whether or not the battery has been...

      A faulty brake light switch might (and the possibility is very slight) cause the behavior you experienced. Do you know whether your BLS was replaced under the VW recall?

      I'm pretty sure that the post-cat O2 sensor only monitors how the cat is performing and has nothing to do with adjusting the air/fuel mixture. And by the way, this is the forum for the Mk4 R32, not...

      The auxiliary coolant pump runs whenever the ignition is on, plus for 10 minutes after the ignition is switched off. I can't tell from your post, but it sounds like your pump is working as it should.
