    A4 sline tdi 2.0 bad tickin noise and loss of power

    i recently had a new air con compressor fitted to my car! the next morning driving to work it jerked as i accelorated then sort of went into a safe mode with no turbo power, wen i stopped the engine was also ticking quite bad??? i took to the garage i brought it from 2 years previous who checked it on the computer.
    the fault was an engine mount sensor this was checked and reset but the problem never went away. they kept the car for 2 weeks with no joy even an audi tech said he never heard anything like this? i ended up just collecting the car as i was told there was nothing they could do??? can anyone help?? thanks nathan

    is it possible the compressor is at fault i say this as noise can travel and also when the aircon is on you do lose some power
    just a thought though

    found the reason! some of the old belt that hadnt been removed jammed the crankshaft pulley and made the belt slip but only 2 teeth on 1 cam!! the timing has now been put right and it seems there aint any more problems! :-)
