    Does anyone know what the range of idle speeds is for this engine?

    Also, using Ross Tech what is the correct blocks to check and how do you increase or de-crease the idle speed?


    Thanks

    At a guess i think the idle speed should be between 700-850rpm

    You won't be able to change the idle speed as its a part of the ECU engine map.

    You'll only be able to monitor it using Vag Com with one of the meaurement blocks.

    Try getting Lemmiwinks, I think you can adjust the idle through there, though I'm most probably wrong.

    Decent guide

    Just hada heart attack!

    I just walked out to my drive way to check the idle speed on mine....But my A3 wasn't there!

    .....Then i remembered its gone to have its Cambelt done! Phew lol

    But i'll check it tommorrow when i get her back but RobinA3's guess seems about right.

    it can be done

    the garage have raised it twice but i still thjink it's a little low
    the aircon being used when engine is cold causes a splutter.

    Not as bad as it was ...
