    Engine Stutter 1600 -2000 rpm.......

    Morning,

    Recently I have noticed my B7 2.0 Tdi 140 to have a hesitation / stutter at around 1600 - 2000 rpm when accelerating, especially in 2nd and 3rd gears. It doesnt do it every time but it is happening more regularly.

    Does anyone have any advice on what I can do to resolve this issue?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    personally myself my first call would be to look for vacum leaks, then clean the egr, fuel filter air filter and diesel treatment in the fuel

    On mine I changed the fuel filter which was due anyway but I think what seemed to make a difference was putting a double dose of Millers ecomax in the fuel and then using it at each fill up for a while.

    Try some BG244, that cured my stutter, but then mine is high mileage (108k), worth a go for 20 odd quid

    Hi all,

    I have a 2007 2.0 tdi (170) and have the exact same problem.

    I had a break down a while back due to faulty injectors, one failed but two were replaced and the car ran ok. Then I needed a cam belt change and Audi changed the other two were replaced. Since then I had the same issue as above, a slight stutter between 1600-2000 revs. Took the car back to audi but it was running fine when they came out for a test drive.

    few days later it happened again. went back to audi and again they ran a diagnostic no fault codes stored and running fine again.

    However, yesterday it had a major kangaroo episode (in fourth gear at 35mph), happened in 2nd gear (slowing down) and again in 1st when I tried to setoff again.

    took it into audi, they rang this morning, still no fault code and running ok again. However they did say that say that someone else had the "exact same issue" but this caused a fault code and was due to the actuator spitting in air with the fuel.

    They have ordered one and it will be replaced monday. I did a search within this forum and sure enough "actuator" and 170p a4 all come up with this fault, but a change of this part has again often not resolved the problem.

    It seems this is due to the change of the injectors (which were a recall - unknown to me, but changed "by courtesy" when I had my cambelt done.

    hope this helps others, and fixes mine

    Interesting. I've not been happy with mine ever since the injectors were replaced. Not starting as well, lumpy idle and now the stutter.

    Please let us know if the actuator solves the problem.
