Bentley Manual must be wrong! Injectors

In my previous post, I decided to order new injectors as they were all 1.5-1.7 Ohm resistance and the manual says if they test out of the range of 12-20 Ohm, replace them... Well I just received brand new VW OEM injectors specifically for this car, and they are also about 1.5 Ohm, just like the ones Bentley says are bad. The Bentley Manual is wrong, and I just wasted over $300 for injectors because of it. That sucks.

Bentley should check their facts on injectors for the 2006 Passat BPY 2.0T turbo.

Like I said... VW Erwin lists the same values (see attachment). This is info given to Bentley by VW... no reason for Bentley to question it.

The only way they would have spotted this is:

a) if they had done their own resistance tests during a vehicle inspection
b) if someone made them aware of the fact

Well. I just did "a". Now will Bentley be questioning it?

Over the years, there have been several cases where someone finds a mistake or material that is omitted and makes Bentley aware of the fact (which they then correct in the next printed issue or post a correction PDF online for people to download).

It is unfortunate that in your case, you are now out the cost of injectors.

VW probably has a disclaimer on the Erwin site that says something about not being liable for print mistakes... everyone these days protects their rear end so to speak.

Have you tried Alldata, Mitchell, iATN & other forums for post about similar symptoms as your BPY?

Hello, Mustang Guy

Apologies for the delay in response - we just noticed this thread. What FKH161 said is essentially correct. The eBahn manual s the information developed directly by VWoA.

The 2.0L engine, code BPY, was actually available in several different models across both the VW and Audi brands. For what it's worth, I checked manuals corresponding to other VW and Audi models with the same engine, and every single one of them give the same test procedures and specified values for the fuel injectors. Once again, this is the official word from both Volkswagen and Audi.

If this is an error, it is part of a larger issue and not likely to be quickly resolved. Just as background, did you fulfill all the test requirements, perform the preliminary check, and check resistance at the specified temperature (20 C, or apx 68F) as indicated in the procedure?

The only thing I see that might be a bit confusing is the piece of line art used in the "checking internal resistance" part of the procedure. The procedure says to "check the Fuel Injector electrical terminals 1 to 2 for resistance", and the picture (incidentally, the same one used in the erWin page above) shows a "1" and a "2", which I don't believe correspond to the electrical terminals. Rather, I believe the check should be performed between the terminals indicated by the Ω symbol.
