    hi im new to this forum i joined a while ago but haven't registered my account until now, im seeking advise on a problem i have encountered with my car, it is an audi a3 2.0 tdi 140 its had a previous remap done by the previous owner and it runs fine, but a couple of days ago it came up with the engine management light, i have a scan tool hand held computer i plugged it in with the ignition on and checked engine faults it came up with nothing and then went into obdII setting before you click (vw/audi) and the fault code was -

    P2108 throttle actuator ctrl mod perf

    i went back to the vw/audi bit and did a rediness test i dont know what rediness means though ???

    it came up

    MIL - PASS
    DTC CHAMBER - PASS (think thats what it said)
    FUEL SYSTEM - PASS
    EGR SYSTEM - FAIL

    i want to kno if anyone has the same problem and how they fixed it and is the EGR SYSTEM coming up as fail because the throttle body flap think is jammed full of ****/gunk ???
    is the problem easy to fix ??

    the car has lost some performance it doesnt seem as torquey its quite sluggish :( makes me sad :( :( :(

    please help me i beg of you

    if i get a throtle body can i fit it myself ? i heard that it has to be realigned or something like that ??

    and my car is booked into audi for monday for the injector loom and 4 injectors free of charge thanks to vosa :) they will plug it in and ring me before they fix the throttle body fault shouldnt they ?? or would they fix it and charge me ?? because the injectors are free of charge ?

    you can fit it yourself, there's only 3 bolts to undo.
    as for audi calling before they fix it, im not sure, ive aways serviced my cars myself.

    Thats what the part looks like, once youve bolted down the new part pull the cover of the flap (will be a plasctic cap thing) then connect the pipes up and plug the new one in, and thats it.

    cant send messages as im new user

    hi mate audi tt one ? what reg and what engine and what would i say when ordering the throttle body, and will the audi tt throttle body fit straight onto the egr valve ??? im confused and interested LOL<br><br>ok basically ring up your local audi dealership and say that you want to speak to the manager or the main person who handles the repairs department, and say to them that you have found out from vosa and also say that i have told you that basically that they have to repair the fault free of charge and say the fault is making the car judder when stopped at traffic lights and whilst driving and they should book it in and i also got a courtesy car so try for one of those aswel just blag it mate although you have the problem with your car, mine also had the fault but i exagurated to get them worried for injustice and whatever

    erm mine came back injector issue free they replace fuel filter and put full tank off fuel in there for me :p
    and they replaced the injector loom which could have been the issue its sorted now
    i think the issue could be with any age car maine 2004-2005 the early 8p1 double grill model

    my throttle body/IMF fault is still there not gone need to replace the throttle body/(IMF) intake manifold flap £200 + only 2 hour job do it myself lol
