    Heater Blower Not Working

    My heaters suddenly stopped working, I have checked all fuses, all okay. Removed fan and connected directly to my battery and it spins okay and if I reconnected it back into my car it works again until I key off then back on? I thought this would be a burnt out resistor so I fitted a new one...

    Crankshaft Sensor Conversion?

    I have recently fitted a pd130 ASZ engine into my Audi A3 replacing the pd105 BXE engine as this had spun a shell and seized the engine. The only problem now is it will not start as the crankshaft sensor if different, I can get the engine started by spraying a fuel substitute into the inlet...

    Testing PD Injectors?

    Does anyone know how to test fuel injectors on a PD engine? They use Unit Injectors so you cannot do a leak back test. I have recently had them tested at a local garage and they tested the fuel return via the OBD using a laptop so does anyone know which program will show this sort of...

    Injector Seals Leaking?

    I tested the starter by putting a direct feed from the battery to the starter and there wasnt anything there at all completely dead. Managed to get a second hand one from a local scrapyard for £30 so I fitted it and it started straight away!

    Injector Seals Leaking?

    Yeah the level is fine now after the drive, smoked a lot from everything in the turbo and what not but you can still hear the turbo spooling up. What do you think about it not starting? am I correct in saying its the starter motor?

    Injector Seals Leaking?

    So today ive been working on my car all day, I found where the oil leak has came from, it has came up from the turbo and into the air filter housing and all over the air filter. Also the injector seals had split and came off, this must of been from the loose clamp before causing it to jump in...

    Injector Seals Leaking?

    Funny you should say that as it does have a turbo problem which happened just before the injector problem started, it goes into a limp mode and comes up with a fault code saying turbocharger over boost condition. Could this of caused my injector failure?
