    air intake manifold, actuator and flap

    Hi for the past few months I have been experiencing intermittent limp mode with flashing glow plug and also lack of power without any alarms.
    Turning ignition off and on clears problem until next random time
    Car spent a few days in Audi and they were unable to replicate fault or diagnose without an alarm.
    I managed to get it in again with alarm showing and after a few days I was given a quote of £1200 to have "air intake manifold actuator and flap " replaced
    Also advised to have egr cooler replaced at a cost of £600

    my question is what is this part ( air intake manifold ) and is the price excessive ( I have since taken the car back without any work done)

    car is a 2007 2.0 TDI 170 s-line

    thanks

    Did you get a fault code ?

    If it is the vacuum actuator on the inlet manifold they are fairly easy to replace and only cost about twenty quid with gasgets.

    To follow on from this story - a few days after getting the car back from Audi ( untouched ) the dpf light also came on and no matter how hard I tried I could not clear it. Took the car to an independent garage and had the dpf and egr deleted. The car feels better than ever so touch wood no more boost issues
