    Error Code: Intake Manifold Runner Control: Deviation

    Hi Mate, I can't comment on the dpf as fortunately had no issues, but have had same fault so possibly not linked. Similar scenario to you on a 56 plate 170 Quattro. Had a P3138 code (glow plug light flashing). I ended up having to have a new inlet manifold after being fobbed off by the the...

    Haldex Humming

    I had a similar fault, so feel yer Haldex 'pain.' When accelerating in a higher gear, I had a loud 'booming' noise coming from the rear diff. In the end, I had to have the Haldex coupling bearing replaced, a kind of donut in shape. Went to the steelers as had only recently purchased the car...

    A3 170TDI glowplug light on dash

    Mine did the same, intermittent and no loss of performance. Ended up having to have it's second Inlet Manifold intake motor as the flaps were sticking. £353 job at the stealers!! Best bet is get it scanned as may be something simple.... Good luck.

    Hesitation - Fuel Filter housing (170 tdi)

    Hi all, Well, after having issues with hesitation/jolting whilst my motor has been accelerating (2.5k - 4k rpm), I decided to have a go at changing the fuel filter. So, I undid the Torq screws on top, slowly lifted out the top and filter. Whilst doing so, the small plastic pipe that the filter...

    Fuel filter cap

    Hi all, Had a bit of a disaster today with the motor. Tried to change the fuel filter and whilst slowing removing the thing the lug in the cap that the filter sits around snapped off! Fortunately the car still starts, but guess I need to sort pretty sharpish..... Anyone know if you can buy a...

    Outside temperature reading

    Hi All, Looking for a little help again. My DIS has been showing an incorrect outside temperature reading over the past few months i.e. when there is a frost it is showing c. 5 degrees!! Looks about 5/6 degrees out. Is this an easy fix, or is it a bumper off job and replace the sensor? Any...

    Injector Recall for PD170 - Might be already known to you lot.

    Just had car back from Leicester Audi. Only 3 Injectors changed as apparently other changed by previous owner. Agree with earlier comments, so far car feels smoother and fuel economy improved! Good servive from the dealer and pretty chuffed thus far.... Asked why Audi do not notify and response...

    Injector Recall for PD170 - Might be already known to you lot.

    Just booked in with Leicester Audi. Spoke to the Spanner Man about the hesitation issues (between 3-4k RPM) and the lumpy idle when cold. All apparently linked to injector issues. I will report back when the car has been in - 2006 170 bhp Quattro Sline

    Injector Recall for PD170 - Might be already known to you lot.

    Spoke to Leicester Audi. They will have car in (06 170 Quattro) and check injectors and run diagnostic FOC. Will replace if anything deemed faulty. However, if other faults are flagged by the diagnostic they will charge the £132 + VAT (unreal)!! I have a dilemma as sporadically my glow plug...

    Glow plug light Flashing

    Good luck Mate. Mine has finally been taken in today. The dealer reckons it's a priority 5 (Low) and will need to take the manifold off to check, although apparently it has already had the flaps (!?) replaced. So, different faults but best to just take the wheels back to the dealer wher you...
