    Fault Code P0401 EGR

    Hi all, my mate has just read the fault code as per title, just wondering if anyone has any history of this before I take the egr off and try to clean it as a first attempt. Is there a video to it, what can I use to clean it with and how much is a new one. All advice greatly appreciated, Thanks

    Resetting the Oil Service message

    Thanks Scotty, The service due message was the one I meant that came up and it states it is not free. It states $39.99 for a years membership to be able to use it as a dealer would.

    Resetting the Oil Service message

    Hi, After spending quite a lot of money this time getting the car through the mot I decided to do some work myself. I have quite enjoyed the experience of getting the hands dirty again after many years of doing literally nothing myself rather than drive it to a garage and pick it back up. I...

    Oil From Ebay

    Hi, Would you trust this Oil to be genuine from ebay? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Quantum-Longlife-5W-30-Fully-Synthetic-Engine-Oil-5-Litre-Bottle-/222674895543?epid=1705379933&hash=item33d87542b7:g:dbIAAOSwRZBZyjGh £40 for 10L seems a very good deal

    Intake Manifold Removal for V6

    Has anyone got a link to how to remove the intake manifold Bank 1 on my audi a4 v6 tdi please. I have googled it but can't seem to find any videos. I really want to have a go of doing myself and have ordered a new kit & Motor to rebuild the worn set.

    Particulate Filter Fault

    Hi Gaz, i spoke to the fitter today and he was very wary of me going down the dpf removal route as he says they could change the law on the mot and fail it if it was removed? Do you agree that this could happen. i guess the worst case that if it does come true is to buy a new one anyway , cross...

He says it's the intake manifold flaps and motor and has asked me to get them as he an only get them from Audi and I don't want...

    Particulate Filter Fault

    I think this sounds like what I might want if the dpf is shot. I am not jumping the gun until the codes are read on monday but as I have an 8 mile commute without getting on a motorway I would prefer it to be removed and mapped out. Does it sound like a good option compared to the £250 from...

    Particulate Filter Fault

    I'm not sure what an anti-shudder valve is sorry. It has a fault with the throttle body flap not closing properly and is going in for some work on monday. I will leave it for the fitter to look at but it seems I am going to be shelling out yet more money. I will mention the cleaner but he will...
