    It starts but not like it should.
    Glow plugs OK.
    Battery OK.
    Fuel filter changed recently.

    Mine always sounds rough until its warmed up and then it sounds like a beautiful diesel sound.

    Every derv ive driven has been the same i think.

    I see i dont understand what that means... this forum doesnt get much coverage, possibly get more if you post in the A3 or A4 section

    Vag-com not bringing up anything?

    I think first I will try to adjust ignition timing, if that doesn't work I will connect to VAG COM (it will probably be a sensor then).It's so annoying, I also have a power loss, my a3 isn't a pocket-rocket when engine is fine and now it drives almost as SDI. I guess that whats happens when you have an old diesel problems problems problems

    234K on the clock, anywhere below 2oC. Sounds like Lemmy from Motorhead gargling with a bag o bolts!! Give it five minutes and it just sounds like a bag o bolts.... Ah the glorious derv.
