Hi guys I have just driven my a4 2.0 TDi b7 and when I put my foot down there was a loud pop and the exhaust system then sounded like a tractor!. I have found the problem to be a hose blown off at its flange weld on the EGR cooler as per the picture below:
This is not my egr cooler but a pic of one I found when searching online. Can I drive the car safely to a garage? The pressure required to do this must have been large - is something else at fault which may of caused it? I have heard mentioned of a EGR removal - is this wise or feasible? What is the best way ahead?
Any help greatly appreciated - thanks in advance
