    A4 18t started ticking over at 1400 revs help pls

    did you check the actual values on the position sensor with the diagnostics? doubtful its that tbh. vac leak or pcv valve more likely if you have no fault codes.

    B6 Timing Belt Issue - 1.9TDi (PD - AVF)

    sounds like youve taken the bumper off all wrong. theres some t25 torx screws that hold the sh1t guards in the wheel arches. three nuts either side that hold the bumper to the wings. pull on the sides of the bumper outwards as its clipped into the wing. three undertray style screws under the...

    B6 Timing Belt Issue - 1.9TDi (PD - AVF)

    mark with an acurate mark where the adjustment is now. loosen the cam pulley bolts off and set it using the tools. fit new cambelt etc. run it up and re-check the torsion value after, before refitting the front panel/top cambelt cover...... adjust as nessasary.

    2.0 FSI A4 Avant - Keep and repair, or cut my losses and run?

    id chop it in. it'd be really bad luck if you replaced all these things then the chain in the back of the head let go. whatever the engine these b6's dont seem to age well without throwing lots of money at them. esp. the "awa" fsi engine.

    Cambelt jumped two teeth !!!!

    belt noise? not unusal for a new belt rollers etc to be slightly noisy as it settles in. it'll either wear off or get worse. if its not disapeered in 100 miles or so then get it checked. better safe than sorry! could be something like a belt cover not fitted right. but you might be imagining it...

    Cambelt jumped two teeth !!!!

    oh dear. best to get a new belt on it, all timed up correctly then do a compression test. if the compressions seem fine then go ahead and build it up and start it. if the compressions arn't ok then its pretty pointless building it up as the relavent head will need removing to fit new valves...

    A4 B6 Avant 2.5TDI Quattro Oil around rear diff, Possible prop shaft seal leak ?????

    its worth them checking the level tbh (once on a ramp its 5 minute job undoing the 17mm allen key level bung and poking your finger in) if they find its ok and its just an oil sweat/dampness and not dripping.... then id leave it tbh. could easily do 10k and the condtion of it not change.

    A4 B6 Avant 2.5TDI Quattro Oil around rear diff, Possible prop shaft seal leak ?????

    worrying? no not really. if its not leaving drips on your drive its of no concern. next time its serviced ask them to check the diff oil level and top up as required. the drive flange seals are relativly easy to change tho (the drive shaft needs removing) bob the drive flange off and there it...

    any one with belt diagram for 01 a4 tdi

    do you have a picture to refresh my memory? i think it goes around the outside of each pulley apart from the tensioner which goes on the flat side of the belt inbetween the crank pulley and the alternator. aircon is on a separate belt.

    No power whilst cornering - Quattro level / G sensor?

    pull the abs fuse. or if you still want the abs to work find one of the accelaration sensors and unplug it. i dont know where they are as they dont go wrong so ive never changed one. is there a separate fuse for the steering angle sensor? this would also render the esp inactive leaving the abs...
