    Hi Everyone,

    So I recently purchased a A4 DTM.

    Now I have done a lot of reading and researching on multiple forums with regards to a lumpy idle, oil out the filler cap, loads of suction on the oil filler cap etc.

    Well it turns out the PCV needs to be replaced but at the same time I want to replace the breather tube, now I am currently in a bit of a dilemma so let me try and explain.

    My car currently has the following PCV part no. 06F129 101 C

    I ordered the new parts from TPS.

    The parts I was given are:

    06F129101 P - (PCV, Revision P)
    06F103483E - Pressure Regulating Valve Gasket
    06D103215B - Breather Tube
    06D131550D - Breather Tube Gasket

    Now the issue is that I don't know if Revision P is the replacement part for Revision C.

    As looking on another website the earlier Vin audi a4 b7 have different parts to ones with the late Vin.

    The early vin has:
    Breather Update Kit (A4 B7, 2.0T, Early VIN) - EuropaParts.com
    06F129101 N - (PCV, Revision N)
    06D103213G - Breather Tube (Updated Version, Early VIN)

    The later vin has:
    Breather Update Kit (A4 B7, 2.0T, Late VIN) - EuropaParts.com
    06F129101 P - (PCV, Revision P)
    06D103215B - Breather Tube (has check valve)

    Now it turns out the later Vin version has a check valve in. I dont know yet if my current set up has a check valve in the breather pipe. But would it harm putting the Revision P pcv on with the breather pipe with the check valve. Or should I be using the earlier Vin version.

    If anyone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated. As I would like to resolve this issue this week and if necessary return the parts if need it be.

    Thanks

    Interested in this as well.
    I was just about to order the 06F129101 N from the bay, but will see what my local dealer says.

    Hi Chris,

    That would be great thou I suspect it is going to be 06F 129 101 N. As that is the part Audi offered me.

    I suspect again your dealer is going to offer you the above part. But its more so now that I have the parts for mine and are curious would it make a difference if I put one on ending in P rather than N. And also does it matter if there breather pipe has a check valve in it. Sadly those are the question I am more so interested in. As it would make life easier as I already have the parts and just means I have to return them and get the other.

    Just for a reference Stringster the price quoted from Audi for 06F129101 N is £38.08 inc vat not sure what the bay is charging :)

    £41.99 from eBay - link
    (Works out cheaper than driving to my nearest dealer though!)

    Just a quick update with regards to this whole dilemma I have been in contact with one of the guys from Audi. This was there response.

    "The problem is that the late vin and early vin valves have different ports. The late vin has an extra port "revision P" which would not allow the early vin to work. I believe yours is the early vin "revision N". Even if the late vin fit it would not give any benefits"

    Turns out that N valve replaces letters C, F, K, L.

    So basically I cant use P i need to send mine back and get N. And change the breather pipe as the revisied one has a check valve in it as well.

    So the recommended replacement parts :
    06F129101N - PCV revision N
    06D103213G - Breather pipe without check valve.

    Optional parts:
    06D131550D - Breather pipe gasket
    06F103483E - PCV rubber gasket

    My advice would be for anyone in the future to look at your current PCV model and see if it falls in the above bracket. And when going about changing the breather pipe check if yours has a check valve in it. Then you can order your parts correctly.

    Hope this helps all members that have the same issue as me.

    Many thanks for the clarification and useful post!

    From what I understand there is no need to replace the breather pipe as it has no check valve - the N PCV has a stronger spring to compensate.

    For what it's worth i just replaced version C with version N. Mine is a mid 2007 Special Edition so the same engine as your DTM (220bhp). I didn't replace the breather hose (not sure what you refer to by that tbh)

    The revision N Pcv has fixed the idle problem. Probably runs better than it's ever run to be honest. Replaced a couple of vacuum pipes aswell. This thread solved all my problems lol! Cheers :)

    Sorry to bump up a thread.

    I have a question about the PCV system. I took the oil filler cap off the engine, whilst it was running and there was suction and the same through the dipstick. Is this normal or not?

    My idle is fine, I was just having a nose around the engine and can recall that suction through oil filler cap would mean a bad PCV. A bit of googling and now I am not sure.

    Forgive me I am totally new to the 2L TFSI engine.

    Thanks,

    Hi, what you are experiencing is normal there will always be some suction from either the oil cap or dipstick as there is a negative and positive pressure/vacumm being built up in the top of the motor.

    You only have to be concerned when some force is needed to remove the oil cap or dipstick, or when you cant get it off at all then you should be concerned about replacing it.
