First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

Forum Rules and Guidelines


This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes which they refuse to install. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

Car spec now shows not for all members.

Release Notes

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

try using Shell V-Power Diesel if You can find it in Your area if not simply switch fuel station. and see if that makes a difference

Hard to gauge smell, they all smell. You might look at injection quantity. If you have a lot of miles, a straight Diesel Purge might help.

what i meant is? depending on where diesel is bought some fuel stations have more sulphure content in it then others giving off more of a sulper smell out the tailpipe.
