Hope some of you can help me out.
Ok so I have read a lot of post here but can't find exact answers for me. Maybe someone will have suitable links or direct advice for me.
I have baought a 2004 A3 2.0 TDI 140BHP (famous BKD engine!). I have the car a few months and have had a few problems with it.
Engine missing at idle. Could be fine for a few minutes and then almost stalls for the next few minutes. It will then bring on a vacuum sound and be fine again. This happen when hot or cold. It's like it is starved of either fuel or air. It idles at 800-850 RPM, holding RPM at 900RPM will stop it. I see other have had similar issues.
My car was loosing water/coolant. After mechanic checked it all out, including UV dye in system, head gasket was the only solution. Timing belt and water pump were done at the same time.
With the head off he cleaned out the throttle body and replaced all gaskets/ seals that were wore or not. Issue 1 seems to have gotten worse/ rougher now.
My headlights are not aligned correctly and I cant seem to adjust the height inside. I don't really want to go get them aligned if I'm going to have to replace the headlights and then get them aligned again.
My rear passenger side speaker has very bad sound. I'm hoping to replace it but not sure how the panel is fixed in place.
It's difficult to start when warm/ hot. It needs to turn over a couple of time before starting.
Does anybody have a link on how to align the throttle body? Do you think this will this help?
Can I get just a replacement headlight motor? Is it normal for them to give trouble?
Is the interior quater panel just clipped into place or are there any screws holding it?
Is this related to issue 1/2 or something different?
Much appriciate any suggestions/ advice.
