Drove my car for 2 hours on motorway today. Came back and noticed a puddle under my car at the front wheel driver side. Found this strange as it hadn’t rained for a week where I live nor had I driven through any puddles.
had the AC unit on the whole journey.
does anyone know the cause of this...
Thanks for that, it would make a lot of sense as my car has not been running right for quite a while. Very smelly and I always thought it had something to do with the mixture of fuel to air ratio. It is intermittent though, some days it’s fine and other days it doesn’t run smooth.
yes, i think you are right, i just inspected it further - the outer sleeve is def damaged but the inner wires still seem intact - 4 of them.
Question is - does the outer sleeve transmits signal or is it only a heat sleeve?
Anyone know what this cable is for?
It seems to have split the outer protective sleeve with metal fibres visible.
It is for a 57 Audi A3 2.0 TDI 170 and runs at the top of the engine bay.
I’m hoping that when I fix this cable it will stop my car from intermittently running erratic.
was just looking for some advice regarding tuning my 2.0TDI 170 PD Quattro (57 plate).
it has done 125k miles and apart from being a bit smelly has no issues. Still has everything stock incl DPF. Never had any issues with DPF.
I am considering getting a map on the car as I believe the 170 can...
