    It may develop a mis-fire at worst i'd say, i cant advise running it like it is, cant imagine its particularly good for it.

    Im sure all will be ok...**touch wood**.

    imagine the amount of people not 'in the know' of these problems, would run them for years no doubt in a poor state.

    I work for a main dealer in Worcester, its not gonna be any cheaper coming all this way, cost you 9 million quid on fuel. No idea on labour costs, the service dept deals with that side of things.

    Crankcase breather valve i.e PCV......

    Try this : If the breather valve is faulty, full engine vacuum is typically found when removing the oil cap at idle.

    I drove around for a while with a knackered DV and that sounded as described, a whistle/woosh from behind the steering wheel or driver's footwell when on boost.

    Your DV is right by the turbo as your car is a K03. Later K04 cars they moved right it to the front.

    And DV isn't the commonly associated word within a main dealer, they'll just go "you what?"

    Just shout them the part number and they'll order it.

    I did say further up the other day in post 16 lol

    Incidentally, if the funds allow, buy the new revised DV. You could be losing out on a fair bit of performance.

    If it doesn't, I will cry.

    Then I'd ruin the TV.

    Although, I am extremely confident with this one.

    More eyelid fluttering action needed. Unlike AMD to charge more than main dealer....did you tell them this? Even if they could match Audi's price id sooner take it to AMD.

    Worst scenario i'd say would be a very occasional miss-fire and to clean or replace each spark plug (depending on when they were last changed and ofcourse budget) as they may get sooted a little sooner running with uneven idle and in-proper vacuum.

    Highly doubt any of that is necessary though. Sleep easy.

    I'll update this thread, worked hard on it and she must have forgotten to!

    PM'd her a while back. As below.


    FYI.

    PCV valve has been revised yet again to 06F 129 101 R (Feb 2014)

    Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I've been scouring this forum and a lot of others but no one seems to have the same probem as me lol :/

    My car is a 55 (06) plate A3 1.9tdi, BKC engine code with 120k on the clock.

    I've realised when my car is idle my revs will rise from approx 850-900 rpm and sit on 1000rmp (just a little above). This can be from a cold start, when i start the car first thing in morning the revs will rise and as the engine warms up it'll auto-rev to 1000rpm every time i sit at idle. When the revs do rise if i press the accelerator it'll drop back to 850rmp only to rise a few seconds later.
    Ive also realised every time the car revs the fans kick in for about 30-45 seconds and then stop but the revs will stay at 1000rpm. I have checked battery voltage and its not a bad battery causing it.

    Theres no codes apart from glow plugs which i don't think should effect the rpm, so not sure what it is, any help would be much appreciated lads. Thanks
