    hey guys

    I have popped over from the B6 side to pick your brains

    My brother has an 05 2.0tdi 140 avant that has developed a problem

    it keeps juddering as if its misfiring! it does it a little at idle and it mainly does it when sitting between 1800 and 2000 rpm and accelerating through that rev range

    also it keeps going in to limp home mode if he boots it or when getting to near 80 mph which I think is overboost from sticking turbo vanes

    the turbo is a recent thing and I don't think its related

    anyone got any ideas?

    I am having a nosey at the weekend I have already had it on VCDS and all the injectors seem fine!

    Stu

    i had this same problem on my 2.0tdi but it was only a very hard judder at idle...had my egr valve cleaned out and it solved the problem but i can slowly feel the judder coming back...

    Thanks for the replies

    It's not engine mounts as I say it's like it's a misfire and does it at a steady throttle too

    Egr has been cleaned too as that was my first thought

    try replacing the vacuum actuator on the inlet manifold, it has a rubber diaphragm that is prone to splitting, this cured mine.
    you can also clean the swirl flaps in the inlet manifold while you have got it off.

    thats twice I have heard that now!

    where is this actuator located and is there a way to test it? would clamping the vac pipe on it confirm whether it is that or not

    it is at the front of the engine on the inlet manifold, black plastic with small black vac pipe.
    you should be able to test it with a vacuum tester/brake bleeder kit

    Here is a pic of actuator. Cost about £10 from TPS and another £10 if you want to replace the gasgets. Easy to do. You will need a couple of cans of choke cleaner too for the inlet manifold flaps. Cured mine of hesitation at around 1800rpm and limp mode fault code 299.

    Part number is S03G129061C vac.jpg

    Mine is a 2007 so maybe it wasn't on the 2005 ?

    Have you checked the air filter ?, I read on another forum of someone having similar problems and it turns out his air filter was really clogged up - he changed it and fixed the problem.

    When you checked the injectors on VCDS did you do output tests while the car was running?
