OK so I just picked up this gti, w/ GIAC chip
pretty nice, runs gr8,
but it has a few little qwerks.
The CEL came on shortly after purchasing it which was alittle worrysome.
So I had it checked at autozone, and it came back with this
p1582
Definition:
idle adaptation at limit
explanation: rich air/fuel fatio, check fuel pressure/injectors
probably causes:
1check intake system for vac leaks
2canister purge solenoid stuck open
3 failed maf sensor.
NOW this actually sounds about right because the guy told me about
a crack in the intake elbow, which he thought was causing the idle to lope up/down.
I just wanted to post up here and see what you guys think,
as I have read that you can't quite trust what the autozone diagnostics tell u.
So yeah, what i KNOW,
throwing CEL p1582, and it's got a crack in the intake elbow..

Re: CEL p1582 1996 vr6 gti !!! (Tad3d)

just found out the leak in the intake arm was actually fixed already,
but it's still throwing this cell.
any thoughts?
Could it be that I need to reset the ecu or something?
i was thinking about just pulling the battery cable for a while, seeing if that'd do the trick.
But I duno..

Based on what I've read, this code on a MKIII is often/usually caused by a dirty throttle body.
