      If this is a US/Canadian 2000 Jetta 2.0L AEG engine code you would use the Cable-Throttle Engines procedure.

      If you aren't sure, post the complete Auto-Scan and we'll see what's installed.

      Hi, I've been looking at your post about realligning the Throttle body (I changed my battery and it seems to have thrown out the allignment)
      Your post explained everything, except what tool I should use to do the job. what scan tool would you recommend? I don't have one, and would like to buy one, but I don't want to get one that won't work. Thanks

      How about the company which sponsors this forum? That's the company that Dana works for, and the company which created with site in the link that you thanked Dana for posting. That company makes a tool....

      I cannot manage to reset the throttle position even after the pedal was changed and removed the throttlebody and freed up the spring to close the throttle. should i just buy a brand new throttlebody or change the parts from an audi throttlebody i have? could it be the computer, because before i got the car the kid put an aftermarket exhaust on it and he ended up changing the front 02 sensor.

      So here is the $ 64,000 question. How do we keep our cars running nicely like we had just done a TBA without constantly having to do a TBA?

      That I can tell you is a completely ignorant and incorrect assumption.

      RTFB says you need a scanner to ADP the TV anytime it is replaced or the battery is disconnected.

      When your trans grenades prematurely for poor learned angles or kick down.
      Please sir you come on back now ya hear?
      Post your scan later when you finally capitulate.

      Happy trails!
