    Still not bottomed!

    I have a 2002 1.8T A4 quattro which has been remapped at Awesome Gti. I am troubled with the orange engine man light being on.Even before the remap I had the problem of the orange engine management light on, it would clear with the diagnostic then come back a week or so later. The MAF has been...

    rear light cluster

    Whilst washing my 2002 A4 1.8T quattro sport I've noticed the rear left light cluster is smashed. It looks like I need the whole cluster arrangement to replace it as the just the lens on its own doesnt seem to come off? Any good breakers anyone can recommend? Is it a simple enough job to replace...

    ESP light, mind of its own

    After changing the battery on my 2002 1.8T A4 Quattro 2 weeks ago the ESP light came on as expected then cleared after a couple of minutes driving. Now its coming on for a few days, then off, etc, when ever it feels like it?? There is no change in the performance of the car as far as I can tell...

    Cambelt change

    What would be a reasonable price for a cambelt change on a 2002 A4 quattro 1.8T sport by an independant garage? My local VW specialist has offered around the £300 mark, with new pulleys and tensioners. Also is a good idea to get the water pump changed? if so, how much should this up the bill...

    Temp still not right!

    Having the old problem of temp gauge not working on my 2002 1.8t quattro A4 I replaced the temp sensor located at the back of the engine bay. Its now reading a temp wandering around the 60 degree mark when I'm on the move and only sits at 90 (which I think its supposed to be constantly at once...

    white residue under cap

    I've just found some of the old milky white residue under my oil cap, its also in the pipes coming off the top of the engine. Has anyone else had this problem and its not turned out to be the dreaded head gasket? if head gasket is the way its going whats an approx price? Cheers

    AVJ 163bhp?????

    Thanks for the reply's, I must say all the info points towards there never being a 163bhp AVJ engine. There is not one piece of info/spec that says there were two different spec engines produced, only the 150 bhp AVJ. Even more reason for me to get it mapped as I'm down 13 horses! Cheers.

    AVJ 163bhp?????

    Having recently bought an Audi that was sold as a '2002 A4 1.8T 163bhp Quattro sport' I'm puzzled as when I do research (going to get it mapped) all specification tables come back with the AVJ engine at 150bhp?? Ive looked at official and not so official sites and they come back with the AVJ...

    Engine noise over 70mph.

    £295 is more like it, mines also the 163bhp model, sounds like he could be the man. If you could post up his site when you get chance I'll take a look and let you know how I get on, it sounds like its well worth it. Got a few other bits to sort out first; change of coolant sensor and little...

    Engine noise over 70mph.

    nice one, I take it it's somehow behind the clutch pedal in the cabin? Thats a good shout mate, thanks for that. Have you had yours remapped? I'm thinking about it, heard Awesome Gti in Manchester are good, I live in Lancaster so not far to go. £375 for around 40bhp extra, seems to good to be...
