    TDI EGR Blanking Issues

    Afternoon all, Having some very frustrating problems with the A4 at the minute. It's a 2007 TDI 140 (BRE), no DPF. I have recently blanked off the EGR at the intake manifold, and since doing that I have lost nearly all performance. When driving, the turbo doesn't boost 90% of the time, except...

    A4 B7 - 2.0 TDI (PD) - Lumpy idle and white smoke when cold

    Hi guys, 2.0 TDI BRE. I’ve got an issue with lumpy idling and white smoke when the engine is cold. The issue goes away once the engine is warm. I’ve looked at the injector correction vales and it’s seems to me cylinder 4 could be a potential issue. The worst value when cold on injector 4 was...

    TDI 140 - DPF or Cat

    Hi guys, Just bought a 2007 A4 TDI 140 BRE, just wanted to double check if this is a DPF or a Cat? Build sheet contains "7GN - Emission Standard EU4, DPF preparation", which to my understanding meant prepared for DPF, but not fitted. I believe 7GG means one is fitted. The unit appears to be...

    Worrying TFSI symptoms, water in oil, would like some advice

    Evening guys, Had some worrying symptoms from my TFSI the last couple weeks. I noticed the other day when I was checking the oil a considerable amount of emulsion was apparent on the dipstick. I had hoped this was due to condensation building up in the crankcase from not being used for 3 weeks...

    Special edition doors vs regular doors

    Evening all, The drivers side doors on my special edition have been poorly repaired and repainted at some point in the cars life, and there is rust all along the seam where the door skin meets the frame.

    Oil pump questions / future proofing

    Evening all, I've seen a few forum posts mentioning issues with the 2.0TFSI oil pump. Is there an intrinsic design issue with them, and if so, how can I try to mitigate it on mine? I saw a link to this kit which claims to remove the (allegdly) problematic sprung loaded balance shaft sproclet...

    New exhaust needed... What to go for?

    Evening all, Hope everyone has had a nice Easter! The original exhaust on my A4 has bitten the dust, a backbox needs replacement and the mid section is blowing too, mechanic reckons too far gone to repair.

    Oil level sensor

    Afternoon guys, Will my Special Edition 2.0TFSI have an oil level sensor? My old Peugeot 406 did, and would give me a digital readout on startup, is this possible in the A4? Best Regards, Ben

    Exhaust blowing... Options?

    Afternoon all, Having just bought myself this new A4, I noticed the exhaust was chuffing around the mid-section under the car. My local garage have advised a replacement exhaust as this one is tired, but as far have been unable to locate one apart from direct from Audi. While I'd love to...

    Just bought a 2.0TFSI Quattro! First things to do?

    Evening all, I've just purchased a 2007 A4 2.0T FSI Quattro Special Edition, its a lovely car and I'm really enjoying it. Its high mileage at 120k, but has a full service history and drives beautifully so I'm hoping that sort of mileage is nothing to worry about. Would be great to hear of any...
