I will try to be really short...
I have a 54 Reg A4 2.0Tdi 140 (B7), 96K miles.
1- No power at low RPM (nothing until 1900 rpm), nowhere near what a 140 should be like
2- loads of black smoke (I mean LOADS) under hard acceleration; not so much when accelerating slowly
3- idling at 950rpm, is it normal?
4- when stationary, along with the usual diesel noise, there is a non regular tapping noise coming from around the alternator; any idea?
5- Combined MPG is....34MPG....
Recent VAG com check showed:
1- EGR overboost
2- 2x glowplug issue
The garage doesn't know what to do (has been 6 month that they do not know...)
I thought about a sticky vane turbo situation and looked at Innotec but I did not want to go ahead without second opinion.
Thx for your help guys.
