Some TD 110s had a problem of stalling while coasting to a standstill from about 15 mph in neutral. The cure was to replace the ECU, but if the car was a personal import out of its 12-month pan-Euro warranty, the owner had to pay. This problem now seems to be coming back on high mileage TDI 110s. VAG acknowledges a fault with the ECU (038 906 018 BM) and specifies an upgraded unit (038 906 018 GQ) at £695.00 + VAT. According to VAG technical, this problem will eventually occur with all ECUs of this part number, so a second hand part may only be only a short term cure.

Must be true then, as I've never heard of Honest John getting anything wrong. I take it this concerns you somewhat? In which case I'd expect to be buying an ECU sooner or later, but personally, I'd wait for the problem to occur. VW never ever get things wrong either. grin.gif
