Customer Question
Hi...I am looking into...

Hi...I am looking into buying a used VW Jetta TDI , 115K miles. It has two codes...p2271 and p047a. How much work will need to be done to fix those codes?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a VW. The VW Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Codes p2271 and p047a

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Probably because I live in the UK and it is a US spec car
