Questions answered on Episode 30 of the AskDAP Show

1.  MK5 Jetta with 2.5 engine has a new valve cover/ pcv valve, but still has a P1287 system too lean fault code.   Any advice?
2. I’m looking at buying an 08 Rabbit 2.5 with a manual transmission.  Is this a good vehicle.
3. My oil pan is stripped on my car and I seem to have been able to take care of it, should I still replace my pan?  Also could the oil leak from the pan cause an oil burning smell?
4. I was wondering if its possible to swap from ABS based TPMS (Tire pressure Monitoring) to a system with individual tire pressure sensors.
