P3103 Intake Flap Motor & Hissing noise on acceleration
Emission Control warning light came on this week on my 2007 2.0 TDI A3 (BKD) and got a mechanic with a code reader (don't think it was VAGCOM) and the following faults reported:
P0691 Fan Control
P3103 Intake Flap Motor
From Google, the Fan Control warning comes on as it's on the same circuit as the motor which when it fails causes the fuse to go soon after. So I need to replace a fuse and possibly the Intake Manifold Flap which may be locked on open going by reports? Also am I right in thinking the manifold is just in front of the right hand side of the engine? Badly need a schematic or something so I can start to see how things are working.
- Pretty sure MPG is suffering.
- When the engine turns off there's an ugly rattle off it that wasn't there before.
- Not sure if this is normal, the turbo or something, but there's a hissing coming from something between the battery and the back right hand side of the engine block. I've found a leak in the air intake (at least from the 5 mins I looked at the engine properly for the first time that's what I assume it is) but on covering it with the mark 1 finger the hissing is still there so it's from something further in. I don't think it's a normal turbo type noise as it's noticeable at any level of revs. It does get louder with more revs.
Couple of pics to make up for my lack of knowledge:
hissing from in here somewhere:
Can someone give me a few pointers as to the likelihood that what I've noticed above is related to the faults reported and explain what might be going wrong? This is the first car I've given a **** about so I want to get my head round what's going on to take a bit more care of her.
cheers for any help.
