I think I have found my Holly Grail with my SAIP issues.
« on: September 27, 2009, 11:34:28 PM »
Here is the thread from Vortex that I started:
http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4579263

It think my issues were related to the combi vacuum solenoid (n112) venting to the atmosphere via the nipple located by the electrical connection.  I noticed on a couple of forums and some retail sites that this nipple was capped.  The next few days or weeks will confirm this as an absolute fix.

But, since applying this fix, I can now run in APR chipped mode.  Before when trying to run in chipped mode the engine would stutter hard when accelerating. 

All I can say is "hot damn!".  I went out for a drive and really put the car through it's paces and then came home and let the engine idle to cool down a bit. I ran a VAG-COM scan and the scan returned no error codes.  The old girl has some new life in her.

Dave,

Good to hear you might have a fix.  Nothing like finding a fix to a pesky problem and then enjoying the benefits of the fix.

Also to good to hear from you.  How have things been for you and the fam?

Hi Rob. 

I am doing ok.  I have been unemployed since 8\7\09 due to job outsourcing.  So, I am on the hunt.  I have a lot of lines in the water, but not many bites. 

Other than that the family if doing well.  Megan is 9 and in 4th grade, Carla is doing well and is still at Costco.  Still living in Littleton and still have the Passat and the 337.

I hope you and your family is doing well.

Take care,

Dave

Thanks Jay.  I have been in the I.T. support field for 13 years.  I am trying to find something in Field Support or Business Analyst/Advisor.
