    After a service the tick-over speed of my A3 Quattro 1.9 TDI (130) has never felt right (too high), someone in a previous post mentioned to look at all of the vacuum hoses were connected and tight, I checked and there are.

    So the questions are (1) What RPM does your engine tick-over at (guess it needs to be a 1.9 130 bhp to be a fair comparison)? (2) What should the tick-over be? If necessary how do you alter it?

    Thanks in advance.................

    950, but its a 110.... I dont think the power rating would make much difference to the idle....
