Too much fuel and we flush the injectors and new fuel filter ( we = Doug did it )
Diafragma was moved between stock position and where it was and it is much better, and almost unoticeable loss of power .

Drove home 70mph and not an aiota of black smoke

Cool- probably way down on the egt gauge as well. If you aren't missing the torque it's all good. Should pick a few mpg-but not as many as you would if you removed the empty jerry cans from the roof rack....

Dave every time I change a fuel filter I fill the new filter with atf instead of diesel. Its an old school thing. The Tdi's seem to react well to it so I continue the practice.

Depends on if I'm able to run any bio through. I usually change the filter any time I percieve a drop in performance.

LMAO,

You mean my ExPo Mall Crawling Cans? I just took them down.

Yes , the Pyrometer was way way down , even if I did not down shifted and stayed on it, I kept looking at it as what the heck? Glad you've mentioned it.

can you add a bottle of ATF to a full tank of diesel and get the same result? My fuel filter will only hold a small amount of ATF, because it is the old style 2.5 NA cannister filter.

Doug, also are you partial to any particular brand of ATF? I was planning to replace my filter tomorrow so I'm glad I read this post.

That is probably not a good idea. The hole size of the nozzles in the TDI is orders of magnitude smaller than an NA and I assume the fuel filters filter to a much smaller size....

Jason,

When I met Doug to do the work, I brought 2 kinds of ATF ( Very Expensive and Very Cheap - Pep Boys cheap ) and his words " lets use the cheapest , no sense on burning a good one ).

A friend mechanic suggested to run Kerosene as well ( like couple of gallons on the Tank ), but I forgot to ask Doug his opinion.

Jason,
As I said this practice is old school from Detroits and John Deeres. Definately don't use a synthetic and preferably an old type F instead of dexron/mercon the fewer additives the better. The filter only holds about a half quart.

The funny thing is I literally just cleaned out the garage 2 weeks ago and hit the landfill with all my old ATF/MotorOil/etc...definitely had some old Type F from my Ford Explorer days (which were in high school!). But glad you mentioned non-synthetic....I probably would have realized that, but...better safe than sorry.

On a side note, the fuel filter may have to wait since I ripped out the whole series of belts/waterpump/waterpump housing/steering pump/alternator on Sunday to get at the dreaded P-Gasket that was leaking. Of course, instead of things going smoothly one of the PS Pump bolts broke off, then took it to the machine shop to be drilled out/rethreaded this morning...found 2 other bolt holes were shot to hell this afternoon...brought it back again...got it back and realized I didn't have any Grade 8 replacement bolts here to finish it tonight. Now have to try to get up at the crack of dawn to track some down, get everything reassembled tomorrow by early afternoon to head to our farm in Lewisburg WV. Always cutting it close : ).

Just to clarify as I'm about to change the fuel filter on my 200tdi ... before installing the new fuel filter I should first fill the new filter with non-synthetic (preferably old type F) ATF fluid? Yeah?
