hi all, im after some help regarding an issue on my car.
its a 2005 a4 tdi 140 bhp s line. BLB engine code.
The car struggles to start, but after a few seconds, (10-15) it starts and then has a slight miss and also some white smoke from the exhaust.
so at idle the car misses, dont get me wrong the car does run and when you drive it down the road under load it seems to be fine. but if i try to cruise at say a constant sixty it flucuates and feels like the power is coming and going.
iv heard many storys about the injector issues with the 2.0 tdi engines but more so with the 170 than the 140. iv rang audi and they have stated that my car is not on any recall list.
after reading a few posts on injector issues i am pretty sure the issue is something related to this.
so where do i start, im not thick and im fairly capable with a spanner so i dont mind giving it a bash, would the injector loom be my first port of call? i read a thread where the bloke just sent his ecu off and had it reset as such and that cured the issue, i believe it was peter donovans post?
any advice or info is very much appreciated as id like to narrow the issue down as much as possible before i just start throwing cash at it.
