A3 1.9 TDI - Boost Problems
Wonder if anyone can help me with this problem.
The car is a 1999 1.9 TDI (110bhp) and done quite a few miles 159k!
The car was sluggish when i first bought it last year & so got a new MAFF fitted & was running really well, quite suprised how nippy a diesel could be actually, after owning an MR2 Turbo.
A couple of months ago however the boost seemed to have completley gone, every so often the boost will return for maybe 5 or 10 minutes, then just dissapear again.
I realise with the ammount of mileage the car has done, the obvious answer would be that the turbo is buggered, but just wondered if it could be a loose pipe or something like that.
ive had an MR2 Turbo in the past & when the turbo went on that, the boost got half way through & suddenly cut out & shuddered, the audi isnt doing this & there is no warning light to tell me there is a problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
