thought it was about time i carried this task out as my car as far as i know has never had it done!
its a 2.0 tdi 140 s line avant with aprox 78k on the clock!
first of all i would like to thank low fuel for this thread as i followed this while doing it and found it was a good how to thread! cheers dude! well done mate!
Audi A4 B7 2.0 TDI PROBLEMS PROBLEMS PROBLEMS.... HELP!!!!
anyway! here goes!
tools needed are t30 torx, 6mm allen key, (shortened helps), spark plug brush, carb cleaner, petrol!
surgical gloves and kitchen roll
i know, i know! i need an audi badge! lol
one filthy anti shudder removed first off,
then the egr! not that bad i thought! i was expecting worse after seeing some of the images on here! must be the v power i only run her on maybe!
i filled an old maggot box out my fishing tackle with about £2.50 worth of unleaded petrol and let the egr soak here for half an hour or so!
while i got to work cleaning the anti shudder up with carb cleaner!
a lot better! not perfect but i did not want to damage the flap! so cleaned up the best i could without braking anything!
the old gaskets and o ring i removed!
halfrauds carb cleaner! around £6 a tin! i probably could have used 2 tins! but got a pretty good result off the 1 tin never the less!
(notice ASN in the background)
these are my mucky paws even after using surgical gloves throughout!
not a clean job at all, but very rewarding and quite easy if you take your time! and follow low fuels guide!
you cant go wrong really!
beer time! a bottle of asdas finest cheap french muck!
its quite nice actually! lovely ice cold and a refreshing change to stella!
