    All

    Since i originally had my A4 3.0 Cab go into limp mode (not always, intermittent) i bit the bullet and bought the Vag-Com diagnostics cable.
    I cleared the faults and then drove the car for a while. I ran the auto scan again this morning and have got the the same results as previous. (Listed below)
    I have checked the fault codes on the website which give a list of checks to make and possible causes. My question here is, has any one else had these same symptoms and what the fix was.
    I can drive the car normally most of the time, however if i give it large (ish) amounts of gas, the next time i start it and drive it always goes into limp mode!

    Here's the printout of the faults.

    Your EGR fault will be because the EGR is blocked. On the 2.0 it is easy to locate and clean yourself, not sure where it is on the 3.0.

    Thanks for the reply. It's booked in for an EGR clean, once it's done i'll report back. Will that fault put the car into limp mode without lights on dash?

    cheers

    I am about to clean my EGR this weekend, seems easy to get to initially, underneath all the wires and tubes ....

    Hope your issues get fixed too.

    id suggest it maybe more a problem with the turbo control system rather than the egr, as the fault frequency says 3 rather than 1 for the egr, plus the ecu first worked out there was a problem with the turbo 350km before the egr fault was logged.

    as for a solution without seeing the car and working thru the guided fault finding procedure............ your guess is as good as mine!

    Hi

    Thanks for your suggestions. As for the fault showing three on the turbo that's because I cleared the egr and not the turbo before run the car. It usually shows both at the same time. Do you know why the turbo fault occurs? I have noticed some oil around the right hand side of the engine and on the bottom of the water bottle. Looks like it could be a breather hose or one the hoses down on the right side of the engine.

    Regards

    There are many reported incidents of turbo malfunction on the 3.0Tdi often resulting in its replacement. I think checking the electrical wiring/connection is about all you can do externally. A dealer can test the positioning motor function, not sure if this can be done with VCDS, maybe someone else knows?

    Mark did you ever get resolved? If so what was the fix for the actuator problem?

    Got the car diagnosed at Audi
    Replaced the turbo pressure regulator and car has been good ever since.
    Fingers crossed : )
