    HELLO GUYS I NEED SOME HELP PLEASE IF ANYONE COULD

    I HAVE JUST BROUGHT A AUDI A3 2.0 TDI 2004,STOLEN AND RECOVERED FROM POLICE THEY HAVE HAD IN STORAGE SINCE 2010,

    I BROUGHT A NEW BATTERY, AND IT STARTED OVER AFTER A FEW TURNS, THE CAR HAS HALF A TANK OF DIESEL AND DONT SOUND TO BAD ON IDLE EXCEPT FROM A SQUEEKY FAN BELT.

    IVE DROVE THE CAR AND IT WAS SMOKING BADLY, WHEN I PUT MY FOOT DOWN IT WASNT GOING ANY FASTER LIKE IT SHOULD,I COULD HEAR THE TURBO WHISTLING UP ABIT SO THAT SOUNDS OK BUT THE CAR JUST HASNT ANY POWER AT ALL WHEN I DRIVE IT, IT WAS RUNNING REALLY REALLY ROUGH,

    IVE DRAINED THE OLD DIESEL OUT OF IT THAT HAD BEEN SITTING IN IT FOR A FEW YEARS AND REPLACED THE FUEL FILTER,ALSO AIRFILTER, AND PUT FRESH DIESEL IN IT STARTED IT UP AND IT SOUNDED ONE HUNDRED TIMES BETTER

    AFTER LETTING IT IDLE FOR HALF HOUR I DROVE IT AGAIN AND THIS TIME IT WAS MUCH BETTER, WHEN I PUT MY FOOT DOWN NOW ITS GOT ABIT MORE POWER,IT ALSO SOUNDS LIKE ITS SUCKING ALOT OF AIR IN ASIF A PIPES COME LOOSE BUT IVE CHECKED THEM ALL THERE ALL CONNECTED AND LOOK OK.

    POWER WISE WHEN IM DRIVING IT ITS STILL NOT RIGHT AND IT ALSO JUDDERS VIOLENTLY WHEN I ACCELERATE,(MISFIRE?) IM NOT SURE FROM OWNING A PREVIOUS A3 IN THE PAST ID SAY THIS IS MISSING 70% OF ITS POWER

    I DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT CARS JUST THE BASICS TO BE HONEST.

    IF ANYBODY COULD SHED SOME LIGHT ON WHAT I COULD DO OR REPLACE OR TRY WITH THE CAR IT WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED

    WITH KIND REGARDS BEN

    TURN OFF THE CAPS!!!! the vanes in the turbo have probably seized up with the carbon as its not been used for 3 years .
