With the original engine it ran fine but i did feel it was not as rapid/responsive as my previous car an A3 2.0TDI.
The replacement engine had done 30,000 less miles, but sounds louder (rattly), and heavily carboned.
Not sorted as yet! However i did notice a small increase in power after i...
I did the same check on my turbo, and also took it to a specialist who gave it a thumbs up.
I bought it from a garage, the owners wife was using it for about 12 months until he put it on his fore court.
He accused me of remapping it which caused the first engine to go after just 3 days. Its a...
No its not them!
My issue is more about being promised a refund if they couldn't do it, and i'm still waiting for it.
I have no idea who originally mapped the car as it was not declared by the garage i bought it from.
I have had several people look at my car and all say the ECU needs flashing...
I thought of that!
Audi was a bit long winded about it, and basically said no because the DPF has been removed.
I took it to get it re-mapped by a company i am at present not going to name, and despite taking a deposit and yet to return they could not remap it because it had been locked by the...
Thanks first of all for making the effort of reading my thread!
I've not had any luck with my A4 B7 2.0 TDI 140bhp since I've had it, and i have spent hours on here looking through various posts getting ideas but not finding the answers i am looking for.
I have hardly any boost if any at all...
Had exactly the same thing with Adrian Flux>>
Was insured with my import Mitsubishi MiVEC V6 FTO, bought an 8P S3 not even thinking about the insurance.
When i went to change it over they would'nt touch it then tried to charge me an admin charge for cancellation.
After demanding to speak to the...
Update, an attempt to get it re-mapped at the weekend has highlighted it has been remapped previously and the ECU locked so it cannot be accessed without flashing it on a bench!!
I do know know though there are no faults.
I had this exact same problem on my A3.
At first i thought it was the immobiliser, it went into main dealer and they said it was crank sensor. I replaced the crank sensor and problem still persisted.
Went back into Audi main dealer and after 8 hours work they came back with sensor must have been...
Based on the picture i have attached would you say the DPF has been opened and striped, or does a standard DPF usually look like this???
I am down on power and unsure if the DPF or EGR have been deleted, I'm due to get the car remapped within the next couple of weeks and...
I have now replaced the sensor twice.
Due to the plug being badly corroded i took the decision to rewire directly to the sensor, but i am still getting the fault.
Is it possible to bypass or turn off this sensor in VCDS?
Still no joy with local VCDS users!! I have messaged several members and used the map to find local members but not ad a response.
My last try before i commit to a main dealer.
Is there any local members that could scan my car cheaper than a main dealer.
I need to know if my injectors are with...
