    2017 A4 2.0 TFSI Avant Sport - vagcom features?

    That is what I was referring to, yes, and I found one thread about VCDS mods (needle sweep, lane assist etc). If that's all there is at the moment then no worries

    2017 A4 2.0 TFSI Avant Sport - vagcom features?

    Hi everyone, Used to own an S3 and have just got a new A4 Avant 2.0 TFSI Sport. Just wondering whether there are any fun / useful things you can program with vagcom out of the box? Cheers

    Umm...should I have a bolt here?

    Looking into my engine bay...noticed what looks like a mount flapping around above my oil filter housing. Looking in the pic below, am I supposed to have a bolt holding that hard pipe to the top of my filter housing?!

    Intermittent starting issue with k04 APY 20vt (mk1 golf conversion)

    I'll give the wiring a check. Red residue definitely seems to suggest a coolant problem too in any case

    Intermittent starting issue with k04 APY 20vt (mk1 golf conversion)

    I've changed the crank pos sensor (but not checked that wiring). But the speed sensor? You mean the crank sensor right?

    Intermittent starting issue with k04 APY 20vt (mk1 golf conversion)

    Re-starting this old thread. Took the car out today and the same issue hapenned once more. I noticed red residue on the coolant bottle top after the car had been standing for a while (and then wouldn't start)…so I think we're definitely getting boiling coolant here! I've replaced the coolant...

    Urgent help please: Plumbing of PCV system confusion

    Ok, so I've changed all that. It also had the PCV valve bit still in the line, so took that out too (so now there is just a straight through hose from the top of the oil filter housing to the crank case breather, vented to atmos. However, now that I've done this, the car definitely idles worse...

    Urgent help please: Plumbing of PCV system confusion

    Hi guys, I found a rubbish pipe in my PCV system so went to change it and found something which confused me. As in the picture below, the car came with the system vented to atmosphere. However there was a T-piece in there with a pipe (the one I was intending to replace) running to the top of...

    Intermittent starting issue with k04 APY 20vt (mk1 golf conversion)

    Yeah, fans run. Still got that link in it that you put in a few months back - I haven't done anything else to the cooling system after that. Don't know the exact rad or fans, would need to have a shufty later

    Intermittent starting issue with k04 APY 20vt (mk1 golf conversion)

    Ok, so an update on this: - I found the boost leak causing the flutter, fixed - I replaced the coolant temp sensor and crank pos sensor - Scanned the car and no faults - Took the car for a road trip for about 500 miles this weekend, and when running, the engine feels great. However, again when...

    Metal shavings on cam position sensor

    Hi all, Changed my cam position sensor today and the old one was grubby but had metal shavings on it (not a lot, but some). Weird is that oil was changed maybe 500 miles ago at most with no shavings found in the oil then. The car has mostly been parked up, mostly because cam position sensor was...

    Intermittent starting issue with k04 APY 20vt (mk1 golf conversion)

    Ok...well, that got technical lol I still haven't been able to scan the car, but crank sensor looks likely. Anyone got a part number? Cheers!

    Intermittent starting issue with k04 APY 20vt (mk1 golf conversion)

    Thanks. Yeah I don't have vagcom to check fault codes right now. Once the car starts it seems to run absolutely fine for an hour now worries...would this be consistent with a crank sensor fault? Others have told me maybe the 409 relay?
