    A4 (B6 AVK) 3.0 petrol inlet manifold/thermostat

    Hi, I was trying to change my thermostat today but couldn't get decent access. Before I gave up becuase it was just too wet and cold to carry on, I think I may have broken the bit shown in the photographs. Does anyone know what this is, what it does and can it be replaced. Currently my car is...

    G448 Sensor: constantly 222*C, plugged in or not

    As the title says, my G448 sensor reading on my app says it is 222*c all the time, whether the new sensor is plugged in or not. I checked the wiring going into the ECU and it's like new, with no evidence of water damage or tampering. This tells me that somewhere along the wiring for the sensor...

    Which CRTD2 chip box?

    Hi all, I'm seriously thinking of adding a plug and play chip box to my A7 and know the A6 & 7 share engines so wanted to gauge opinions on 2 specifically - I've narrowed it down to either the RaceChip RS @£349 or TDI tunings box at £296? They appear to offer similar gains in power and economy...

    While driving around at range from 60 to 80 kilometer per hour the rpm jerks or fluctuation a lot. Feels like car want's to go ahead, but something is holding it back a little. Once you get over 85 works great. Doesn't matter if the car is warm or cold. This is how it kind of feels, but only...

    EGR Valve question, able to clean without draining coolant?

    My EGR valve has been putting the car into limp mode, so for the last year or so I have just unplugged it and although the MIL is on, the car isn't in limp mode anymore. Its a B8 3.0tdi (CAPA) engine. I would assume it needs cleaning, but looking at the procedure, it says the coolant need to be...

    Hi all, A few months ago I purchased an A5 Sportback, 3.0 V6 with 7speed S-Tronic. The car was registered September 2012.
