    Does your EGR leak on pd 130?

    Mine looks like it leaks a bit of oil. Mechanic says this is normal on the lot of them. Car still drives brillant and i always use pd oil. But am i suppose to accept that they all do it or does it need a new one or gaskets or something?

    mine used to do that . what you will find is that in time the oil leaking from the vent holes will make its way down the black plastic arm of the anti shudder valve into the rubber diaphram that operates the arm and distroy it . when this happens you get a lot of engine shudder when you turn off the engine . audi do not sell the anti shudder valve seperately if it goes you will need to buy the whole egr valve not cheap

    I believe blanking off the EGR will sort this out

    when you turn the engine off a vacuum is created that pushes the arm forward closing the butterfly flap in the egr valve starving the engine of air so you get an instant shut down without any shudder
