View Full Version : Help! car reverts to idle, ignores throttle

Car is audi A4 2001 model, b6 chassis, with 130bhp tdi engine. Had just compeleted an 85 mile journey yesterday when the first of all the traction control light went on permanently, then the glow plug light came on flashing. The car would not rev beyond idle. I was close enough to home to get it home in 2nd gear with the idling engine having enough pull to get the car to go. Any thoughts?
