Hi we have a 2004 VW golf here. I was on vw vortex but they weren't too kind over there. Hopefully a nicer group here? :eek:

Anyway we've had this car for quite awhile now. Got it with about 15K miles.

It now has about 150K. Been a great car and hasn't needed a thing. We kept up with oil changes but maybe neglected doing tune ups.

So it needs smog now. We're in the SF Bay area of CA.

Told wife that we would order the code reader and check / reset the codes and go from there.

She then decided to go take it into a shop and get the code checked for $20.

Shop comes back and says it reads


Which are something with the plugs and the cat and that it would be at least $1,000 to fix.

Told the wife to just bring the car home and I was going to do some research on it.

Anyways, thanks for reading. I'm going to do some research and see what I can find out.

For now I plan on at least doing a basic tune up. Any thoughts on where to get some plugs / wires?

Thanks again!
