    1990TSIAWDTALON replied to the thread 2G Turbo oil feed line leak.

    I don't think there is a leak. It almost looks like the dipstick popped out under boost and got oil onto the ends of your exhaust manifold and on the oil feed line AT SOME TIME IN THE PAST. I know... See more

    1990TSIAWDTALON replied to the thread 2G Smoke in engine.

    Is that exhaust oily right as it meets the head or is that just a shadow? Looks like the heat shield kept oil off of it but it may just be the lighting. See more

    1990TSIAWDTALON liked dustyboner's post in the thread Very high rpm starting stuck.

    my guess would be your are leaking oil or coolant onto some of your exhaust parts. Pull the heat shields off and look everything over. Anything leaking on the front of the motor, from the valve... See more

    Your isc could be not working and stuck although usually you only idle at 1500 rpm. But maybe with a bad tps , isc, and sticky throttle cable its going that high. Did you do a Boost leak test ?... See more

    I wouldn't be surprised if he's on Link V2 and if the car has been sitting, and the battery died, then there probably isn't a tune in there at all. See more

    1990TSIAWDTALON liked dustyboner's post in the thread Very high rpm starting stuck.

    Did you check the throttle body to see if its stuck open? If that isn't it, maybe the settings on your Link'd ECU are way off. If you don't know anything about ecmLink, check out... See more

    Maybe the afr swing is telling the ecu to add fuel then dump then add then dump like a DSM ecu works. I am not familiar with AEM units tho. See more
