Hi Guys. ive been watching the forum for a few years now but ive never posted anything till now. I have a 2004 2.0tdi 140 and i drive a lot (204,000) and its on its original turbo, clutch, flywheel etc., 99% of my driving is motorway. its never failed to start and its always the first turn of the key
Recently the car has suddenly got loud and has started juddering on idle...my mums had 3 2.0tdi sportbacks from 04 to present but none have been like this...all were sold at over 160k and the issue has always been engine mounts. But the issue with mine is that when i clutch in the noise quietens down significantly then starts again with the release of the clutch...its really loud and sounds a bit like the exhaust is blowing heavily...upon acceleration..i get a deep tone as if i have an aftermarket exhaust, the power is still there, drives perfect but the juddering has started to feel like a misfire but its intermittent as if the car misses a beat. I went to see H5DJR (very helpful guy) to check for errors and there were none...a local tech said its a wheel in the gearbox and a failed injector? i noticed my vacuum resevoir is now disconnected...
issue i have with the techs diagnosis is that the gearbox feels fine to engage, not even clunky, same goes for the clutch feels just as in the 2007 we have, same with the drivability of the car, anyone have any ideas of anyone in East Anglia think they could help please...i love the thing and i just want to carry on running it till it dies basically
sorry ive gone on too long
