Outside influnces? What vaccume nipples, theres a bunch, FPR, Intake Manifold, DV... Sounds like the are feeding you crap. Take it to another dealership and try. Depending on where the leak is, yes it could cause a CEL

Bart, I just looked the part up in my version of ETKA...turns out this part has been used for years on VWs. But the valve that you are referring to is located underneath your intake manifold.
www.vwparts.com wants $134.28 for it...I'll see what my price is on Monday.

I am more concerned about why they won't replace it; Big Dub's ride is stock....

Although, if it was damaged in your accident you may have to talk to the insurance company again; not a fun proposition...

Hope all works out for you!

It definately can be causing it, Bart. Most of the time a vacuum leak causes a code for the MAF, due to unmetered air entering the engine.

If you are coming up next month for Spring Show and Go at E-town, I'd be more than happy to take a look at your car for you.

the code that comes up deals with secondary air supply or something like that
