      means your car is gonna blow up like in the FnF with the blue flames from the NOS.
      just a second let me grab my bently but if i remember correctly is has something to do with a glow plug circut problem...either you have a short or a glow plug is about to go

      ok the bently doesnt have engine codes in the P range *p codes are SAE scan tool codes not VW specific. but it doesnt have a P3130 but i can tell you that P0313 *you may have mistyped it i dont know* but thats the misfire code but i dont know how that would happen on a diesel. who knows.
      still think its a glow plug thing

      P means its along the lines of the powertrain. The 0 is generic (most companys other than vw will have a 1 instead for manufacture spicifiic codes) As far as knowing what the code is....I don't have my software at home. I will check up on it later and get back.

      According to the Bentley CD, there is no P3130 code for a MKIV. Are you sure the number is correct?
