      I run the larger Passat filter on my 20th (Mobil 1, Bosch, or Mann filters), with Castrol 5w40. No issues.

      No. Replace the switch. Its much easier to do that and the part isn't that expensive.

      I'll really never get why people do things like that rather than fix it. My husband had a '95 Passat that...

      The aircooled bug. My Aunt and Uncle's red '69 Beetle to be exact. I remember getting a ride in it when I was around 5 years old and I just completely fell in love. Every time we would visit I would...

      There will be no marks on the ECU as it doesn't need to be removed for tuning - its all done through the OBDII port.

      Yes it does. You need to get your hands on VAG-COM/VCDS and get a scan on the car.

      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...
