    I've had my 1.9tdi for nearly 2 years, i bought it with full service history at 137k
    after just having new belts and water pump
    Its now on 164k still no issues mechanically

    although I think I've got the sticky viens pproblem
    its gets serviced with good quality parts every year, an an oil change every 6months

    ive seen pd engines with well over 200k and even one over 400k

    so tell me what mileage is on your pride and joy ?

    My old pd 130 Skoda had 275 000 miles and no probs except boost control solenoid and maf, since new, brilliant engines for doing high miles just not as smooth as the CR.

    Common Rail engine, rather than the PD engine. That's where my knowledge ends :)

    I think the common rail is what's found in the newer ones.

    Yep, they're a nicer engine but some models have been plagued with issues.

    I recently did the intake, turbo and egr clean...it's a very very dirty job, but not too difficult. There are guides out there. I also blanked off my egr pipe too, you ideally need two of them. I only bought one first time, and it was too thick to still allow the pipe to fit, so I bought a second one and removed the pipe completely.

    They cost about £6 for both I think.

    Yeah, mine was 3mm thick. You'll struggle to get that between while keeping the pipe on. It took me the best part of the day, but a lot of that was spent cleaning the intake and egr valve. And it was pretty much 0C, which slowed me down haha

    Does cleaning it make a massive difference?

    I just don't want to make a balls of it
    so unsure wether or not to tackle it on my own

    To be honest, no. If your turbo is playing up it should do, but i've noticed no difference really. However, it's also a preventative thing, kind of like changing the oil. I never notice my car being any worse before an oil change yet I do it because I know that if I don't...it'll die quicker.

    You handy with a spanner or not? I'm a pretty competent person with hands on stuff, but cars are probably my weakness, and I managed it easy enough. Just make sure you only squirt mr muscle in the proper places and you'll be fine. If you're not so confident yet, just tackle the egr and intake clean, after that you'll be fine with the turbo clean I bet.

    2003 53 plate PD130 Quattro Sport 6-speed.

    Bought it in 2011 with 94000 miles on the clock and currently just shy of 114000 and still pulling like a train (touching wood :p ).

    Regular servicing with proper PD oil and a regular 'thrash' of the turbo once warm to keep things from coking up seems to work.

    Going to give it a full oil and filter service this weekend with nice fully synthetic 5w 30 PD oil. New air filter too while I'm at it.

    It is quite smoky on start up and under load and does smell fumy when cold so I'm going to carry out a full EGR and intake manifold clean as soon as I can. Will get the EGR blanked off too.

    Very pleased with the car and how the engine pulls. Despite the Quattro its a much quicker car than I would have ever expected. I've actually heard from a reliable source that the 130 engines were somewhat conservatively rated in terms of power/torque and that many factory spec cars are putting out more like 140-150bhp and 240lb/ft+

    Good car IMO. Can't grumble considering what I paid for it.

    You people with your quattro, coming here boasting :p

    I can't complain, this is my first Audi and was a chance encounter really, so i had no idea just how good quattro was. I am considering replacing this over the next year though, and it will be replaced with a quattro for definite.

    Certainly not boasting about Quattro lol.

    I never intended to buy a Quattro but it was the nearest A4 1.9 Sport 130 to me when I bought it and it was a minter. To be honest though with the winters we have had of late it has been an absolute Godsend. I must admit that whenever the time comes to replace it I will certainly look at Quattro options again.

    I think I'll be lookg at the B8 3.0TDI Quattro S-Line next if funds allow. Looks like an absolute beast!

    Mind you, it will be a while away yet as the trusty old B6 still gives plenty of smiles per mile!

    114,000 miles on mine now, bought in April last year with 97,000 on the clock 04 reg SE spec

    Apart from 1 minor problem it's going the best and never let me down.

    I've spend over 2000 euro on it since December converting it to sport/s line inside and out

    I have no plans to change this car so hopefully I'll put up well over 200,000 miles on it.

    Although I would love a 3.0 tdi Quattro S-line B8 too :-D
