Limp Mode/Boost problem please help
Hi all, I own an A3 1.8T 2000 model.
Lately the car has been going into limp mode. I discovered a leaking boost pipe which I have replaced, but the problem still persists.
Now comes the weired part, If I remove the pipe from the silver thingy at the back of the engine, boost returns to normal and the power is back. However, It chows fuel like a mutha...
Can someone please help with this problem
What is the purpose of this pipe? Is the N75 toasted on my car? Is it dangerous driving with this pipe off?
I will upload a pic of the little pipe in question shortly
Thanks in advance
