I have an AAZ that's always been a little sluggish. I'd been driving it with the cold start lever constantly pulled out because it would stall otherwise. This lead me to believe the timing was too retarded. When I checked it, it was at 0.73mm, which is within the "check range" but I decided to set it to 0.80mm anyway. Well, it still stalls without the cs lever pulled. After reading some forum posts on vwdiesel.net (which appears to be down lately, anyone know what that's all about?), I found that a lot of people were setting theirs to 1.00 or even 1.05. It doesn't seem normal to me that the car would be stalling (even when fully warmed up) when pushing the cs lever in and letting it use the static timing of 0.80, considering that's the factory timing spec. Will setting mine to 1.00 fix my issue or is there another underlying cause?

As I've said in your first post.

First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

This is a new forum layout with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or or original similes. It doesn't show the car spec/location or signature properly either

This has been talked about many times.
