Hi guys forgive me if this has been asked a thousand times im a bit of a green horn when it comes to the Audi, only had it 2 weeks and its my first diesel. Model is a 2007 tdi s line 170 quattro.
What i noticed yesterday after only driving say 3 miles is at a set of light the car was idling at 1k for a bit then it dropped to 900 then back to normal 800 again. I moved off and on to the next set and same again. I drop home and it did the same when i stopped there, there was a smell of burning rubber when i pulled in and believe me it wasnt me burning it i was cacking it instead...
So today i start the car up and pull off and bingo on comes the DPF warning and a crude picture of an exhaust, the car is hesitant sometimes around 2000k sort of cruising and when you put a little power on it dips (i mean you'd hardly notice) and then drives fine.
I wont have access to vag.com till possibly tomorrow afternoon but i was hoping someone may have had the issue and give me a clue as to what to look for
