My bentley manual shows three egt sensors. One between the particulate filter and the reduction catalyst and two on the upper front of the parrticulate filter. I have seen the wireing for the two and will look for the single one. How do I tell which one has failed? Is there a test to tell using my digital meter. Looks the the two on the particulate filter could be a bugger to get to.

 

Thanks

It would be the one before the converter . It will be hard to test with a digital meter we use a scan tool to see the changes it does. I hope this helps.

Do you access to vw illustration 253-70? Looks like right off of the particular filter. my bentley manual calls it a G648. Sound right to you? I live in the north west corner of Wyoming and my closest dealer is Salt Lake 500 miles away so I appreciate your help.
