    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...

    Stutter at idle (misfire) but no codes.

    I've got a 57 1.8tfsi and I have, what appears to be, a slight misfire at idle. The PCV has been replaced along with the rear crank seal, and oil pick-up pipe which seemed to improve the idle but the shudder has come back. Car does drive fine with only a slight hesitation from partial throttle...

    A1 strange idling noise...

    Anyone have any idea what this might be caused by? Any thoughts welcomed! Garage bought from seem to think this is totally normal. Happens at random but worse once warmed up.

    1.8 making putt-putt noises on idle

    Hi all. Our 1.8 non-turbo is making putt-putt noises on idle, and is hesitant when pressing the accelerator from 1-2k revs. It is used irregularly so also turned over before starting but that is just the battery I am sure. Any ideas at this stage?
