      CEL started blinking and started running very rough. Took to shop and is throwing misfire and timing codes. So now it's undrivable. Perfect. Bringing it home tomorrow to check out the oil pump screen...

      http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea....-Help!-(AGAIN)

      Before that happened...

      1. needs all new coil packs
      2. driver side tie rod end
      3. dim tail light turn signal that no one can see during the day, almost been hit a few times!
      4. shakes uncontrollably when coming to a stop from high speeds, hopefully just needs new rotors
      5. secondary air flow pipe is decaying
      6. randomly the low coolant light comes on in cold startups
      7. hesitates when accelerating, hopefully the new coil packs will fix this
      8. airbag light has been on since I bought it 2 years ago
      9 CEL has been on since I bought it... now its blinking

      I'm starting to get very depressed, so I'm stopping there.

      Another day, another problem. Today she's decided to be short on power, little to no turbo spooling, and just idling weird on start up....
      indecision may or may not be my problem, i think i might stop procrastinating tomorrow....

      Was supposed to be on the road insured yesterday for the first time. Got fuel injectors replaced and window motor. Today my alternator went, bought a new one and put it in. That took all day! It was a huge learning experience. Should be road worthy soon

      got a code for multiple misfire and misfire on cylinder 2. looks like its time for new coilpacks.

      question on the same note, in the fall i took the car to the dealership and had the recalls gone through and they inspected the coilpacks but did not replace them. if i take it back will they fix them?

      Most recently, I put an APR turbo inlet pipe in and now CEL is flashing for no apparent reason (Not running rough). Other than that:
      2. My center console has been broken for the 4 1/2 years I've owned it.
      3. It's really dirty and has been 140 or so degrees for about two weeks so I haven't felt like washing it.
      4. I find random interior parts on my floorboard every so often. I'm assuming my Jetta is going to fall apart at some point.
      5. I need new tires.
      6. I need a full 3" exhaust.
      7. I need a Bilstein suspension kit.
      8. I need the valance off the 04 Jetta.
      9. I need a paint job
      10. I'm still not generating over 300 HP.
