Not really a car, but one of its major components. In this case a rather famous one. While you guys ponder the nature of this machine I’ll be out in the barn wrenching on my daily driver. The recent cold snap forced me to switch to running 100% petro-Diesel and I suspect that has contributed to a common malady in VW TDI engines, a clogged EGR/Intake manifold. I’m pulling both the EGR & the intake manifold off the Jetta’s much-smaller-than-this-photo’s engine and cleaning out the accumulated soot. Thankfully there is a wonderful community of smart folks online, in the form of tdiclub.com who share all the “how-tos” of TDI maintenance freely. Armed with that info, I’m off to do battle! Wish me luck & See you soon!
