This is more than likely a vacuum switch which tells the computer something when it reaches a certain amount of vacuum (could also be a pressure switch doing the same thing when the turbo reaches a certain pressure, depending on which side of the turbo the "vacuum" line is located). This would be why you are only seeing the vacuum line and connection to the ...

You should have been charging on the low side not the high side. But it's actually good that you weren't able to top off the system. You should never use that stuff in any car AC system and it's outlawed in the states. This is a flammable refrigerant! From the SDS (Saftey Data Sheet) AUTO – IGNITION TEMPERATURE: 1585 F FLASHPOINT: -34 C LOWER ...

For logging purposes, the best smartphone app by far is Torque Pro for android. If you don't know anything about cars, DON'T mess around with fuel/ignition maps. You are going to push things too far and end up melting pistons and/or damaging your turbo. I guarantee it.

In regards to your second question, you can connect to your car with the Wireless Ross-Tech VCDS volkswagen diagnostic system. It is by far the best VW diagnostic tool. The wireless version supports iOS and Android, but isn't exactly cheap. However if you plan on working on your car it's a must. http://www.ross-tech.com/vcds-mobile/ VWs are very specific ...

For tuning purposes, you have several different options (and probably more): Bully dog Celtic Tuning Malone Tuning And many more And again, there are plenty of products on the market which will allow you to do what you want to do with the OBD2 system, at least I believe it does considering your real lack of description: Mobile Asset Solutions Amazon ...

Most of the claims made by a lot of 'tuning' firms are just too much hype. They rely on taking the EGR valve out of circuit, which whilst giving the extra horesepower the vehicle usually gives out excessive nitrides of oxides(NOX). This NOX output is a known killer. Here in the UK somewhere in the region of 5000 people die from or have attributable causes of ...

The pressure was equalized throughout the system. Static pressure (without the system running) at around 80deg F should be around 90psi. I found this information from this website: On a properly working system, high-side pressure will be about twice the ambient temperature, plus 50 PSI. For instance, on a 90-degree Fahrenheit day, twice 90 is 180, plus ...

The fault for me would be your wasting your money on a Re-Charge kit. A service quality AirCon service machine would not only check pressures and moisture content, but also find any vacuum leaks. The machine would also be able to check high and pressures during actual operation of the AirCon, and replenish any gas or oil with the exact correct amounts.

I have made a thread on one of the VW forums. Thanks to people there I have been given a link with some explanations. Hope this will also help the others :)

The readings are off of your trip computer. The little numbers in the corner are for differant trips - say business or pleasure, differant drivers etc. You do not need a workshop manual. The vehicle should have a 'drivers handbook' to give you all the operational details you need. If you do not have one they are available from your VW maindealer at modest ...
