    I have the new upper gasket that you can have if you want it (mp me your address). The sump is in two bit's, you have to take the first sump off to get at the bolts for the second one.

    2.5 TDI V6 cambelt change - help please!

    Tipex & a box of different size bolts and drill bits. Sorry can't remember what size it is to lock the injection pump (maybe 9mm ish) I made a bracket to lock the over head cams. Good luck

    2000 a6 passenger window bother ! sticky..done a search, nothing is broken,any ideas?

    The main problem is that the "anti sprog with head out of window system" kicks in with the added friction and lowers the window.Mine was always worse after long wet periods where the joints must have swelled!

    When I did mine our local stealer managed to sell me a new modified oil filter/filter (for £120 :faint:) unit that was supposed to stop this problem, looked exactly the same as the old one though:wacko: To change that it was a right bitch,injection pipes off,turbo,egr etc........ Just to...

    The problem is Nick that the EGR is quite a precision valve so once they are full of crap they can't close anymore.Mine was sticking full open & as a result the ECU was going belly up hence the lack of power!Disconected,scraped,destroyed Egr is not an mot failure,.I also have a Land Rover and...

    We seem to be going round in circles here! Valve stem seals would burn oil and smoke would be blue, yours looks white and stinks of diesel yes? I dont think that it would be valve stem seals and besides they would'nt noticably effect performance. White smoke stinking of diesel is either...

    You only have ONE EGR (ENGINE GAS RECYCLE) which if disconected should have a suitable bolt in it! On the turbo that's your wastgate that is also operated by a vacuem pipe!It has nothing to do with the EGR.

    It's normal that it runs like a pile of sh*te with the EGR conected! Egr valves should be banned!!!Did you change it your self? If so did you clean all the pipes,manifolds etc?? Maybe some craps come loose and is preventing it closeing again!! Easiest way to check if the egr is stuck open is...

    Silicon spray (or wd 40) in the guide runners every now and again should sort it or at the worst water can get into the motor and rust one of the cogs up,strip, clean & grease and you can save your self 200 snakes for a new moter!

    Problem is that when you start hitting a few tens of thousands of miles the EGR valve get's that caked up with crap (along with all the inlet manifolds) that it usualy sticks full open when warm and never closes properly anyway so disconecting will make no difference!
