Steve - Thanks for the tip on adding oil! The only people who add oil to that car are the dealer tech and myself, but still good to know. I also supply my own oil for dealer service, so it is never pumped in.
But the question remains about the EGR. Should I be concerned? I've also seen this mentioned on a VW TDI forum - that the EGR causes the intercooler to get gummed up. Any thoughts?
