Mk5 General Area / Re: What did you and your MKV do today?

Had an oil service plus new plugs and red coils. The brakes were overhauled with Endless Mx72 pads / steel hoses / bronze bushes / ATE fluid and the restrictor removed from the clutch bleeder block. Will clean the MAF / cam timing sensors over the weekend and also give it a machine polish and waxing.

Cheers guys. Not much to update really, been cleaning and such as normal. Doing oil and filter every 3,000. Just clicked over the 145,000 mark now. Got a warning light for steering rack torque sensor so have a new rack to fit soon.

You need to copy the old cluster immobiliser data to the new one and also the millage correction using VAG commander......then use VCDS to do the usual steering angle reset etc etc.

You don't need it. The 'P' revision was the problem. The previous N and the current R do not need the checkvalve

Part number is written on the underside of the PCV, you’ll have to take it off.
With the part number of the current one in hand you can then be sure whether to change rear breather or not.

Mk5 General Area / GTI experts? Car has loss of power and horrible noise at high revs
« Last post by Rossmk5gti on July 13, 2018, 01:15:32 PM Started by Rossmk5gti  »
My car has the following symptoms and no codes:

Loss of power, still boosts however power goes dead at 4000rpm plus

Noise from the engine bay which gets louder as revs increase, sounds like a diesel being revved hard

Whilsting noise that sounds like a siren occasional (usually on startup)

I have brought the G revision of the diverter valve however im concerned about the horrible rattle when the car is revved hard, low down in the rev range the car performs fine with maybe a slight power loss.

Any help would be appreciated I am concerned the turbo may be on it's way out or the engine may have moved out of time.  :thinking:

I've done a fair bit of searching and can't seem to find a definitive answer. Sorry if this has been answered 100 times!
When replacing the PCV with the latest revision (R), is the rear breather tube with a check valve necessary?

I swear I read that it is, but can't seem to find the post that said it, and I have more recently read that perhaps the revision R does not need the new check valve.

 :thinking:

I'm a bit lost as to whether I need it or not... also do I have the right part number for the rear breather?: 06F103213N
I have an 05 plate GTI if that helps.

Thanks in advance!
