    2008 2.0tdi a4 cab misfire

    Another 170 or 140 thread

    My 170 FWD does 30 average on town driving (in london). Easily drops to 25 on a very bad day. I got 43 yesterday taking it easy with no traffic. Very rare though.

    Unlock boot button on key fob

    Limp mode

    They will replace your injectors and loom F.O.C. regardless of if you bought private or not. This needs to be done for safety reasons so get it done. If this was your problem then yes it will fix your car. If not then it could be some other problem
