First things first - timewasters & daft questions will be ignored (this isn't faceache so hopefully that won't be an issue) Selling due to employer getting rid of company...

    2.0 TDi 170 PD - What Oil?

    Hi Guys & Girls, I'm finding comments around the web that note that the 170 PD (and probably 140 PD) engines need a particular engine oil, rather than whatever is lying around the garage at the time. Does anyone know what oil should be used?

    Help! A4 Avant B7 170 DPF Full but suspect this isn't the real problem

    Hi Guys, My A4 Avant B7 170 has been out of action for nearly 2 weeks.

    Hi Guys, Can anyone tell me where to find the VNT actuator module on my 2.0 TDI 170 (56 plate) please?
