Charge pipe popped off the intake horn bringing Sarah’s Jetta back from inspection

Under boost accelerating in 4th appreciating the power of a _modern_ dumpbus I thought I grenaded a driveline lol

Took me a second to evaluate road speed and R’s were still correlated, I just lost 80% power.

RF brake caliper dragging. New to have a front doing something stupid, it’s always a rear. Not enough to pull, but enough to be warm after noticing a brake pedal difference.

Always something

The always-perfect oil pressure on this 462,000 mile animal dropped to the bottom of the gauge as I arrived home just now. Over the course of the last 2 miles of the drive, noticed around 20, then 10, then less as I parked.

No funny noises.

Gauge slightly reactive to RPM, so not a -dead- sender or gauge

Typical is 45 hot idle and higher at cruise
Oil consumption has always been negligible. Maybe a quart low at a 7500-10000 mile, 3 gallon change.

I see I’m at 7750mi, will check and probably change.

Very concerning.

Restarted after writing that, showing 40psi hot idle

Maybe it’s another cluster fuck up like the fuel gauge a couple weeks ago

did a little reading this morning - found that the pressure gauge is a complete lie run by the ECM based off of a 6psi pressure switch.
there's a pressure port on top of the oil filter housing, I'll shop for a pressure transducer to add there to the CTS gauges to get a real number since concerns were brought up....

I drove the XJ today.

that sounds better than looking for a new 6.7


maybe weird electrical thing?

15-18 hot idle. 50-60 hot cruise at 2,000 rmp

I think it was a dash snafu. Will be interesting to see how much difference fresh oil and filter makes. Clean fuel filters is the difference between 7-10 and 2-3 psi…

hmm  15-18 hot idle sounds kinda low but not sure what it normally had been running

Yeah ZERO clue what it was 100.000 miles ago and if that’s same or worse.

Factory low pressure warning is 6psi so I figure over 10-12 is hopefully non fatal.

Gauge is just showing 40-60 at all times no matter what. So dumb. But I should have expected it.

I really thought it was a real number since it DOES move with rpm. That’s just… tricky. deceitful. rude.

If you have that other wiring left over let me know. It’s cheap to get just a pressure sensor but the extra interface for sensors is $177 itself. Silly. Too bad I can’t just make the dash gauge tell truth - but the dash is definitely failing intermittently so maybe better to bypass it anyway.
