    Seems to be some form of vibration damper by looks of it in etka, check any wiring going to the mount of the engine as seems to indicate not connected, could be corroded wire or damaged.

    As I dont know your engine code etc then I'm just checking overall in etka for a B6 car, but that should be enough for you to check.

    Hi Thanks for the response. It's an AVF engine - 1.9 tdi quattro.

    Will check the connection tonight on the passenger side as it is accessable, or could i disconnect the wire to see if another fault came up to eliminate the passenger side one ?

    Cheers

    Where abouts is the wiring to the passenger side mount?

    Ive got a mount coming from the garage i bought car and my mechanic can fit for £30.

    The car shakes violently at a cold start and throws out quite a lot of smoke and runs lumpy for a min.

    The vag com scan shows only the same as the original posted.

    Car runs perfectly otherwise.

    check coolant sensor,go to engine in vag and check measuring blocks when car is at normal temp...i.e temp gauge halfway and check reading on vag see what its showing.it will say coolant/temp sensor.
