16619 -Engine boost condition - Limit not reached. Check intake hoses/ connections for leaks. Check Turbo charger waste gate regulating valve/ waste gate working correctly. Must move freely when accelerating, won't achieve full boost if waste gate sticking open. Check Turbo impeller turning freely, oil feed pipe for turbo can get blocked causing impeller to seize. Engine compact, not easy to access these components.

Audi A3 TDI glow plug light flashing. Turbo doesn't kick in. Persistent problem now. Previously, it came and went.


hi
possibly the EGR valve is blocked.
one way to clear it. by taking it to a high way. drive in lower gear and more speed to clear EGR.
otherwise remove the egr valve and connecting pipe and clean the build up carbon.

Glow plug light flashing


did you use the interface to cancel limp mode
you know its in limp mode

what was the printout of the diag

its aok to post i have a problem and this is the issues
but in limp mode you have no choice but too use software too fix the ecu etc to reset the mode fault etc

i think its the cold start system with air has an issue

if the glow plug light is flashing and the glow plugs are ok then its a sensor problem and a needed reset of the mcu to clear the error and retest...

from cold...!!

warm engine is prob aok
something air related

Engine managment light flashes (glow plugs light)


the car is going into limp mode due to an engine management fault. have to check what the fault is with a code reader. if the milage is high 100,000+ could be a turbo fault (overboosting), as this will put the car into limp mode.

2004 audi a4 tdi not ticking over properly for first 15 seconds when cold , rev counter needle unsteady ?


Check up glow plugs (4 pieces) and glow plug relay placed inside left bottom area near clutch pedal. It is no.4 relay from left to right. Verify also all electrical cables. In most cases the glow plug relay is out of order.

I have a 2000 Golf TDI and while driving to work this morn. the glow plug symbol started flashing and when I pressed the gas pedal it would not go or engine would not rev up. The engine was still running...


your car went in to limp mode...it sounds like you have got a intermitant fault with the throttle pedal.get the fault read to confirm.you can drive it but it may reoccur...you are doing no damage
