    my a4 tdi 130bhp (awx engine) starts first time in the morning,and maybe start ok for a good 2-3 days without a problem,then suddenly one day in the week the engine will turn for a good 3-4 seconds before it starts? WEIRD:shrug: checked all pipes for leaks/splits/cracks and replace fuel filter.Also sometimes when i put my foot down hard it will have a 1 second hesitation then shoot off,throwin a little cloud of black smoke(maybe this is normal) :uhm: Also i got 75 miles on 11 quid of fuel last week! local driving,ive heard this is not good,im testing this again this week see what figures i come up with.

    What miles should i get on a tenner local driving?

    That all depends on how heavy your right foot is doesn't it?

    But if you compare that against my 2.5tdi, i get about 88 miles for a tenner so there must be something wrong, unless, you wear lead boots of course!

    My 130 TDi costs around 10p per mile so a tenner would do 100 miles combined cycle, more on M-Way.
    You'll always get a bit of hesitation, the A4 is a heavy car and 130bhp is not a terrible lot to get it going.

    Black smoke is not normal, sounds like the pump is overfuelling or maybe you have injector dribble.
    A grey smoke is okay as long as its not excessive.

    Black smoke is normall once youve had a remap and thats about it, sounds like over fueling mate!!



    oh and try to leave the car for a minute without throttle before you switch it off, normally works with big petrol engines, but never heard with a vag diesal, but worth a try.

    Don't know for sure on these modern common rail diesel, but the old school method was to take it out of the engine and test it on a rig.

    Filled up to the top,from shell (86.9 pece per litre) drove nice and nomal(no heavy right foot used) did 100.3 miles,went back to shell cost me 19.00 pounds! to fill up again!

    Whats going on,new temp sensor fitted fully serviced,it does take a few seconds to start,but only sometimes weather engine is hot or cold,will this make a difference? plenty of power in the car. Im sure it should of used no more than 10 pounds.

    HELP! A4 TDI 130BHP AWX ENGINE 2001 (B6)

    Thats well excessive, i can do around 190 miles on 19 quid and I have a quattro which uses a bit more fuel!

    Could be a multitude of problems, get it to a specialist.

    temp sensor is new (4 week old) on vag-com temp reading was 80'C and on gauge was 90 ,is this a problem,if so whats the cause as sensor has been replaced?

    Also where is the thermostat located,is it a simple job?
