    Turbo vanes sticking and causing overboost. Very common fault - please do a search as you will find loads of info.

    When asking for advice you should always say what engine it is - I assume you have a BKD

    The AA man is wrong I'm afraid - have you noticed any whistling sound like a police siren ?

    Here is an explanation of that fault code :- 16618/P0234/000564 - Ross-Tech Wiki

    There are different A3 2 litre engines. Check inside the front cover of the service book and it is most likely to have the engine code BKD.

    Boost pressure problems are very, very common on that engine. Has the car ever gone into 'limp' mode ? Turbo vanes get sticky and do not open and close properly. Too many revs and the engine will shut down to protect itself. Please search 'overboost' and you will find a lot of information.

    I cant thank you enough for replying it really means alot

    The car went into limp mode as i noticed it wasnt picking up as usual so i switched the car off and back on and it was normal again . This happens now n then and then the engine management light came on and thats when the aa gave me the code 16618

    I havent put my foot down since then as he removed the light of the dash board . The engine has never shut down on me either .

    The code in the book is bkd
