CAR: 2006 Passat 2.0T FSI 89,XXX mi.
I bought this car @ about 60K miles and It has been running well. I've been researching things I need to do to keep my car running well for years to come. My maintenance plan is as follows:
1.) I plan to use the 1/3,1/3,1/3 seafoam method (gas, oil, intake) right before my next oil change of 4,000 miles.
I have completed Sea Foaming my engine. Results: MUCH smoother idle. Definately more responsive. I cannot prove more power was a result. And from tracking my MPG in my commute, I'm getting a little better MPG; nothing extremely substantial though.
2.) I will change my oil, either 0w40 Mobil 1 european full syn, or the Pento High Performance II from ECS (Currently running)
3.) I will have my timing belt and switching to a metal water pump serviced by the dealership
4.) I will change my transmission fluid and filter changed at the dealership
5.) I will have my cam follower replaced at the dealership (Using ECS Follower)
6.) I will have my plugs and coils replaced at the dealership
7.) I will have any recent recall work done while at the dealership. (I think there are some resent ones to be done to certain VINs)
8.) I will clean and re-oil my K&N drop in filter
9.) I will be installing an AWE diverter valve
10.) I will be tuning to Unitronic 1+
11.) I will be adding s5 style headlights with DDM HIDs and a very very light tint to help resist oxidation of the lenses.
Everything will be here end of next week. Is there anything I should have them look at or do while they have my car all taken apart to do all these other things? (Thermostat replaced 3 months ago)
There's a TSB and an extended warrenty for the PCV Valve. What would I have to do to get them to change this out?
