Just a call to see if anybody has made contact and had any joy after suffering problems after having the injector recall work done? Just a basic google search shows all VAG group tdi 170pd engines suffering similar running problems but varying in severity. I am back to the delaer tomorrow after having shelled out £250 thus far on trying to solve the juddering/kangarooing at low revs normally when cold, with no joy. It's so clearly linked to the injector work and I still haven't found anyone on any forum who has solved the problem! The nearest that came to it was the egr cooler and leaking exhaust gas and the inlet manifold vacuum unit/actuator which somebody claims has solved the problem, but why does the symptoms only start after the recall work has been done??? I am calling AUDI UK tomorrow and expect the ususal 'not had any other problems' response, yes I am a pessimist! My mrs says I should sell the car but I feel it's completely out of order to pass the problems on to somebody else who may have no idea that the recall is the prime culprit. Thanks to 'Murran' for the following suggestions which I shall suggest to the service manager tomorrow, along with the moutains of forum printouts I have prepared for him!!
"my first question to the dealers would be........
have you fitted a replacement seal kit with the new injectors?
also when the injectors were removed was the compression seat/seal (that seals the injectors from the cylinder pressures) cleaned and have you replaced the stretch bolts that hold the injectors down and correctly torqued the new ones? they should be replaced! "
P.S. Look at all the VAG group tales, a drop in the ocean I bet as it's just a small margin of folk who use forums to share their woes...Plus after replies from forum users I guess a lot of folk have just cut their losses and sold the car..
