2000 Volkswagen Jetta 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 83000 miles
First I would like to thank those who take the time to answer these questions. I try to pay it forward on a boater web site with my knowledge.
I think I am a victim of bad diagnostics at the volkswagen dealer. Check engine light came on and went off several times. When I brought it in for service it was off, but they downloaded the trouble codes and told me it was carbon build up on the throttle body. Went ahead and had it cleaned out($300). 1-2 days later the check engine light was on and off again several times. This time they said it was the electronic part of the throttle body and I had it replaced at $700. 1 day latter the check engine light was coming on and off again. Brought it back in and after they had the car an entire day rediagnosing, I recieved a call telling me that it was a bad connection/ground that they tighended down. This time no charge.
I am thinking this was the problem all along. Should they have records of what codes they pulled? Do you agree this is fishy?
have the same problem?
