  1. Hey all, I love my golf dearly, he's called Pedro and is my first car. I'm the kind of person who really wants to be able to fix things with him myself rather than get ripped off at a garage and so far I've been able to do so myself, but I've now got a new problem, and I'd love if any of you could help....Basically he runs fine, no problems starting or anything but recently he's started randomly cutting out when I press clutch and brake at the same time (eg changing gear) usually at low speeds but it has happened between 5-30miles an hour. Its not all the time, and its not everyday, but its enough to make me aware something isn't right.There's no juddering, no traditional stalling signs, and he starts up again first time. It's just literally like the engine is turning off.Any suggestions of how I can figure out the cause would be great.Cheers.
  2. ENGINE stops after acceleration

    Hi i start the engine and it is running fine, but when i press the accelerator pedal the engine revs and then stops completely, if anyone have any ideas?
  3. Hi guys, Guess I'm just hoping for some advice or pointing in the right direction. Long story short, my car broke down on 8th July and has been with a main Audi dealer ever since. They found no faults on the system and had originally told me it was fuel contamination. After not being able to find the main fault they started taking bits off and found that the valves in the inlet manifold had broken and a couple had broken into bits and must have gone into the engine. They have now finally removed the head and told me that the cylinder and pistons are damaged meaning I need a whole new engine which retails at £4000.00 They said they are looking into what thet can do but personally I feel that there must be a major problem if a 07 plate car thats done 80k needs a new engine and the manufacturer should pick up the tab. Last of all the warranty I have is 5* AA cover which when you look at it only covers the st £1000 of a claim so not worth the paper its printed on. Any comments would be appreciated. Cheers.
  4. Hi All Can aynone advise on which engines codes are the same? I have a MK5 Golf 1.4 FSI with the engine code BLN, however I cant find this engine, is there another engine which I could get and put on instead, for example a BCA engine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  5. Hi Yesterday I noticed the engine in my 06 GTI DSG vibrates at idle RPM. The RPM is steady, but the whole care shakes when standing still ... Performance doesn't seem to be affected, car now has 35k miles. Also noticed the air intake at the right side of the engine is lose ( happened before ). Have an appointment at stealer thursday, but thought I might ask here what the problem could be. TIA Oliver Belgium
  6. timing belt - audi a3 tdi

    i think my timing belt went yesterday. i was driving and lost power stereing and and engine stopped. i didn't realise and thought i had just stalled so tried starting the car. the engine obviously didn't start but did turn over, quite quickly but sounded flat. does anyone know any signs that i can look for to see whether it is the timing belt that has gone without trying to start the car again. Also, if it is the timing belt, do they fail safe, or will of bent values, damaged cylinder head etc. any advice would be appreciated. my car is an 2002 Audi A3 tdi quattro with about 75k miles.
  7. I have a problem of bad smelling inside my X3. The bad smelling comes from the engine's compartiment across air conditioning outlet. Had someone had the same problem? Thanks.
  8. Buying advice

    Hi, As a new member to this forum can I congratulate all those that help to run this great site. Some useful info here. Now to my question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm looking at buying A4 Cabrio, probably 52/53 plate at around the £8k mark, my first adventure with Audi's. I've been looking through the forum to see which engine/gearbox combination is the most reliable and pound for pound the best size engine i.e. performance over economy. The 3.0ltr looking favourite ( I like the sound of the V6) at the moment although mpg not that great. I tried reading the ‘sticky’ “essential collection” but unfortunately the links within don’t take you anywhere. So its over to you good people!!!!!!!!!!! Which do you think is best and why??????????? Many thanks EQ
