    I had a Passat in today with the sameish engine, she ran it very low on fuel, it coughed, she refilled it and it now runs terribly with the idle all over the pace and fluctuating rail pressure, I think the high pressure pump has died. Worst thing is we only did a cam belt in the summer and now it has to come part again. Modern low emissions engines, especially diesel, do not make sense.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Mmm, this is really tricky. My car idles fine and (for the most part) drives fine too. Starts well and power delivery is good.

    As stated previously, I've changed the lift pump, fuel filter, pressure sensor and the valve atop the hpfp.

    I don't want to try changing the hpfp (at great expense!) For it not to be that.

    I'll just have to do some logs and maybe post up results/videos.

    Thanks for the help so far crasher 😉

    Embarrassingly I have just noticed it is an A5 sportback, not a Passat, time for new glasses! I have not had any time today as I have been working on handing a project car back and after this ham salad baguette I have a new Golf R to remap so a bit later I will look deeper into the unstable fuel pressure
