Had my a3 now for nearly a year , done 7k miles in it since ive had it, the car will go into limp mode with no turbo if i put it under a lot of load going up a hill or thrashing the car, i was told that the turbo is maybe on its way out , but through out all this the eml never came on...
3 days ago i was driving along and the eml came on, a friend of mine had a scanner so i popped it on that and it came up with a EGR flow fault.
he cleared the codes but as soon as i set off it came back on again , so i went home and took the egr valve off and made it spotless with some carb cleaner and a wrag , it was a little bit dirty but not as bad as i was hoping for, i was however surpprised of the amount of oil that came out of it when i was undoing the 3 nuts oil ran out and was dripping, but apparently its normal for a bit of oil to come out as i was told.
Anyway ive put it all back together and the eml is still on the car doesnt drive any different really although ive tried to make it go into limp mode and so far it hasnt but i dont think the problems fixed.
Im sure the eml should go off if the fault is fixed right ?
Thanks in advance
