1999.5 Jetta TDi
After a cold start if it cool out the engine has a little shack for about 10sec then goes away.
Wont do it if the engine is warm or if its warm out in the morning.
New mounts installed a month ago.

Any ideas?

Shack you man it runs uneven like on 3 cylinders?

It could be a faulty glow plug, do you have VAG-COM/VCDS?

The software is free to download Release 10.6.4 its the lead thats dongled so the software recognises its a genuine lead. You can get cheap leads of eBay so its pot luck if they work correctly.

The cheap cables will not work with the Ebay cables, the ebay cables will work with the freeware version of Ross tech. If you only want to clear error codes or access some basic features they will work. However, the genuine cables come w/lifetime full version of their latest software because they recognize that they're a genuine cable.

Would the cable from my obd3 work?

Whats the limitations of the free software compared to the purchased one if any?
