    Hi my Audi a3 engine management light came on last week, the cars weak when started and slightly judders, if I put on the heaters it goes worse, recently started to flash aswel.
    Ive replaced the EGR valve costing me £250 fitted but nothings changed! :/ Engine lights still on, anyone got any suggestions? Mechanics useless as the diagnostics machine claiming its the EGR valve. It makes like a metal rattling noise whilst I rev it
    Any help is appreciated

    Could be the throttle body/anti shudder valve this is the component directly under the egr valve ask your mechanic to check it out
