    Got a A3 2.0 tdi 07 plate. Engine keeps going in to idle mode when I reach a certain amount of revs, a warning light on dash and a whistle from the engine, is the turbo shot? cracked pipe? faulty seals?....Help!!
    Had engine cleaned, by this I mean I paid £120 to a garage to spray an aerosol cleaner down an air intake pipe, didn't work..

    Get it scanned with vcds.look in vcds users section map to see if there is anyone near to you who can scan it.
    I assume you mean it goes into limp home mode? Could be vanes on Turbo need cleaning properly.
