    just curious...........is there any type of sensor on the turbo that can go,causing the car to go into limp mode?

    Just a friend of mine on a 2.0tdi a4 (same engine) said he had it replaced and his car go's really well,as before it was like a 2.0 diesel with no turbo and about 90bhp instead of 140bhp!

    just wondering where it is exactly.

    Map/thrust sensor located on the intercooler outlet pipe. Quite common fault. Also check hoses for leaks
