Strange, mine is a '05 with checks at 60k then every 20k, replace at 120k. Not a BPY engine though

You can replace it at 120k without taking too much risk since it's the scheduled interval, however the sooner the better.

What do you mean by red primer? You can use the primer you want as long as you sand the area and remove ALL the rust. I couldn't (the rust was deep enough to have made some pits in the metal that...

I used the one from Duplicolor for the color Magic Black (LC9Z), the color match is pretty good with the original one but of the course the finish is a bit less smooth although this can be corrected

VW gives 7 or 7.5 bar as minimum (in ETKA) so around 100 psi. Normal range is around 11 to 14 bars, so 160-200. What matters is that the maximum difference is not more than 1 bar, so you are fine

If it's only one cylinder which is misfiring, check which one from the DTC, then try to exchange the coils and see if it follows.

00 and 1 flashing means 100. Not sure what 11-3 is though. It probably has something to do with the solenoid, usually I look at 11-0 and 11-1, but maybe 11-3 is the actual value of the solenoid.

If one runs at max speed and the other not, it means it's toast. However it's not your problem since you have one running intermittently. Yes, scan the car, full scan, you will see what shows up.

I am pretty sure VCDS will not show faults because the duty cycle of the compressor was 82, it means the climatronic at least tries to run the compressor at full power, so it's probably not in some...

Ok, so yeah maybe there is a problem with the compressor. Even with 140g you should at least see the evaporator temp drop some degrees. Mine had less left and still managed to produce some weak cold,...

Yes, but cans are more for a rough top up because you need to properly pull a near complete vacuum on the system for at least half an hour to get the humidity out. When doing so, some oil will get...

As said before, the compressor always work at 5% capacity (in ECON mode) because it has no clutch, that this the minimum it can work. That's why VW recommends not driving more than 10 minutes with...

I am pretty sure that the fan do not work if the AC is not cooling/pressure not building. I don't remember that mine worked much when the AC was empty, however then turned on directly when charged.

Get it recharged, they will usually add a tracer (yellow dye) in the system so then you will be able to spot leaks easily. Could be the condenser too, if it was hit by some rocks

OK so the duty cycle is

11-0 = 82.0
11-1 = 82
11-2 = 82

The solenoid seems to be ok, if I remember correctly 82 is the maximum so its working at full load. High pressure side is 5.6 bar and...

You mean the engine o-ring and the pump cover o-ring or only the engine o-ring? Replaced all of them and it doesn't leak anymore (E revision).
