    Hi Guys I'm hoping you can help I recently got Vagcom from Nigel on this Forum and I have come across this fault.

    1 Fault Found:

    It's a 2.5TDI V6 has anyone experienced this fault and know what it is. I tried on Ross Tech Wiki but fault code wasn't on there. Any1 help would be appreciated

    Hi
    I had a simlar error last year....it can be several things but in my case the air pump was to culprit...it wasn't even broken, the hose connected to it had come adrift...1 minute to put back on.
    Mines not the TDI but I reckon its not that different. You need someone who can target the code exactly and then go right to the problem - ie a VAG trained mechanic.
    I wouldn't be too overly worried....car will run ok but maybe fail at MOT, maybe not...if its the air pump they're not that expensive...
    Find a garage with VAG and at least you know where they'll be going with it.
    Hope this helps.

    I only have codes for Petrol Engines in my Workshop Manual but did some Googling and found a reference to this in a OBDII Code Reader, page 10
    "00560 = EGR Temperature Sensor Switch Short or Implausible Value"
    And same mentioned here too.

    You just need to find where this sensor is! Could try this link in the air intake maybe?

    Cheers for that mate...i'm thinking i could maybe have a stab at cleaning the EGR Valve as from the links some people say that can have alot of crap inside it
    might give that a whirl ...now just to have find that on a 2.5 TDI engine
