    Diesel injector fault

    I've got a 51 plate A4 1.9 diesel 130 sport and it's been on the diagnostics at an Audi dealer, where they told me there was an injector fault. Initially, I took it in because of a lumpy tickover, which Audi told me was caused by the injector problem. They told me that a new injector would cost around 600, without the labour costs thrown in (gulp!).

    Does anyone know of a diesel injection specialist in the West Midlands that would be able to fix this problem, as I guess some damage to the engine will occur at some point and that will make 600 + labour look like chicken feed.

    Ok, since I posted this I've been to a diesel injection specialist. They've told me that my car has an injector balance problem and, possibly all the injectors have to be replaced at 200 each + labour costs. Ouch!

    I originally bought an Audi, because I thought I was going to be buying a quality car with a good reliability record. How wrong I was. The number of faults I've had with this car far surpasses anything I've had on any other car I've owned. I should never have swapped my old 1.3 Jetta for this heap of crap. I'll NEVER touch Audi again!! No amount of debating will change my mind either.

    I dont know if this helps directly but I asked a question about injectors in teh Tech Forum.

    The link is here..

    Injector help

    Seems circa 250 per injector... 600 seems very steep.
    Coming back to Audi with an A3 Tdi Sportback Quattro... but the 220bhp T5 was epic....

    It helps a lot knowing that These injectors are around 250 each. I've just got to find somewhere to fit one now. It also shows what a ripoff Audi dealers are. Thanks.
