    Bag of spanners....

    Good evening folks,

    So in short my 170 tdi Quattro sounds like a bag of spanners. Now before anyone says it, I know it's a diesel! Ha ha but my tdi golf never ran as rough as the a3 does. Particularly notice it when taking it easy going up through the revs. When giving a bit more beans it sounds better, quite good actually, or as good as a diesel can ha ha

    I am needing a new clutch at some point coz the release bearing is on it's way out, and possibly the flywheel is too.

    Just looking for general ideas and opinions on diagnosis or solutions or any opinions? Or is this a basic characteristic of the 170?

    Thanks

    justin

    If the flywheel needs doing you've already found your issue.
    TDI PD170 S-Line Sportback... 191.2bhp & 290lb/ft torque @ standard with an iffy turbo! No idea with the new one or Shark Stage 1 remap installed, DPF off Stage 1 ready to go, Suspension & wheels to be fitted... Still....
