    is it time for it 2 go......

    hello,i hav a mk4 gsi,i came on here time back as it was useing oil,but when i looked back they had put 10-30 oil in,so could have been that.

    but 2day the exhaust emission light has come on,could that be because ive got a 200 cell cat on maybe? need some help from the gsi boys!!!

    Ive had this code for a few weeks on a coupe turbo ive been working on

    I replaced the CTS (coolant temp sensor) along with a few other parts today and the cooling light has long gone and it now idles perfectly

    0530 relates to aircon refrigerant pressure sensor - - no idea in real life what it means but i had a CTS spare and its done the trick

    whats it running like?
