    Hi all, Just wondering if you kind people could help me out with two problems i have with my A3.


    1, Car seems to shake when stationary and also judders to a start from cold with a puff of white smoke, once warm runs great like any other car, but still shakes when stationary.

    2, Rear washer doesn't work found out that its leaking underneath, maybe a loose connection (pipe loose)? Is this a common fault heard the rear pipe gets blocked?

    BKD engine if that helps?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    thanks for the reply's, hope it's a simple fix! Get it checked out soon.

    With the rear washer i think its just the pipe come apart from the bottom/side of the bottle? as when you press the stalk screen wash just shoots out the bottom/side of bottle. (where ever its connected).

    Does the engine revs up by itself when stationary?
    Mine used to rev from time to time up to 1100rpm and back to 8** quickly. The coolant temperature sensor G62 was faulty.
