Soot builds up in the vehicle's exhaust system and can trigger this kind of behavior. This typically happens when the vehicle is used in an urban setting a lot, and rarely is driven on the highway. You may need to have the vehicle's exhaust examined, and cleaned if possible.
This is a typical fault with most modern diesel cars.

Dear Customer,

you have to do with your service manuals like how much transmision ratio your car can accept or drive easily,

that tranmision you have to install in & use as super car you drive.

new audi transmision fitting is almost same as you remove if acceptable kit you are goin to install.

SOURCE: it does not have power to overtake although when

Your motor probably runs in "failsafe" mode (won't go past 3000rpm in highest gear), but in that case the ECU warning light should also come on (which might also be broken ofcourse).

Try releasing and reconnecting the battery (-connectors), which should "reset" any fault-codes in the ECU and see if the TDI power is back. Please note that the "cause" of the ECU faultcodes will probably put the motor back in "failsafe" mode within minutes ! But at least you've verified that your motor runs in "failsafe" mode due to serious faultcodes in the ECU.

You should have a dealer/expert read the ECU faultcodes using VAGCOM to determine the cause. A dealer will charge something like 50~60$ for it.

Since it's a 1.9TDI my best guess is that's it a broken N75 turbo-valve (common TDI issue, replacing the part yourself will cost less than $30 and 15 minutes). When the dealer suggests a complete replacement of the Turbo-unit (quite expensive), please have a TDI-expert do an 2nd opinion ...

SOURCE: my 2002 audi a3 1.9 tdi is overheating? I have

The radiator fan is of no value above 35 mph due to the amount of air being forced through the radiator. Your problem appears to be with the thermostat. It's relatively inexpensive and easy to change. You should have the fan repaired for low speed and idle cooling.. It's more than likely a faulty relay, It is also a quick fix and relays are inexpensive. Good Luck, Ned

Audi a3 1.9 tdi se 5 door. Complete faliure of central locking system and electric windows. Can anyone offer any suggestions, or has experienced this problem with any audi mode. Thanksl


what ever you do don't go to a audi shop as it will cost you a £1000.00 with out vat and £32.50 for every half hour of there time. try to resync. switch engine on with spare key and remove the remote fob from the key, shut the door and lock the door with the key within 5 seconds press unlock on the first remote to be coded untill the indicators flash once, wait 5 seconds and press unlock again to confirm this memory position. Remove ignition key and test remote if o.k repeat for other remotes adding extra positions by sitting indicators flash. position 2 will be two flashes. if no flashes then get the fault memory read. This may take a few attempts and lots of sweaing. Regards Samantha
