    1998 A6 2.5tdi won't rev beyond 3000rpm

    Hi Guys,

    So far I've replaced the air filter, MAF sensor, fuel filter and MAP sensor.
    Apart from starting better the problem is still there.
    I have the full version of VCDS but no experience of using it.
    Could someone please advise me which channels to log etc to identify the cause.

    Thanks for any advice

    Andy

    when you open your VCDS and its registered, on first window there is a auto-scan function, hit it!
    once its complete save it and paste the unmodified content in code brackets, if you donīt know how to do so, please read this guide here: How-to-post-an-Auto-Scan

    once auto-scan is posted it is a lot easier to track down what issues you have stored in your car, and there fore easier to solve them.

    Thanks for the link but I had read the description.
    Problem is how do I test components that would cause the error.
    Just off out to do a full scan as requested so will post the results soon.

    Full scan as requested.

    Code:
    Removed.  Data from a clone/pirated copy of VCDS is not welcome here.

    Getting help on this forum requires the use of a legitimate VCDS system.

    They are available directly from us:
    https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/cat/VCDS

    ... Or from any of our authorized resellers:
    http://www.ross-tech.com/distributors.php#uk

    Let us know via PM if/when you get one so we can adjust your forum status.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Then I suggest you file a complaint and return it to them. Let Trading Standards know too.

    Uwe is the owner of Ross-Tech which develops VCDS, so if he says you have a pirate copy then you have pirate copy - no ifs, no buts, no maybes
