    Hi I'm having one side (passenger side) of my engine getting hotter than the other side (even just on idle) also seems like it maybe running a little rougher? I'm not sure but it's definitely louder on this side I've also got a whistle when revved (more as I let the throttle off) also I have a bit of a sucking noise when i turn the car off (sounds like it's coming from the throttle control flap) not sure if this connected to my problems or even if it's normal but i didn't notice it in the first 3 years i had the car but the sucking noise has been there for a little bit (i think since I had a garage change the egr valve) please help

    I am guessing this is a V6 TDI?
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Do you get a vapour like trail of white smoke from the exhaust at idle with a thick unpleasant odour?

    I think there has been a bit of white smoke not too sure if it's vapour like and not too sure about any odour from the backend i will have to check tomorrow , under the bonnet and maybe even inside the car there is an odour but i think it's just the smell of heat, what kind of odour am i looking for? What are your ideas? So I can look for it

    Sounds like typical faulty V6 CR TDI injector syndrome, makes them run lean and get very hot.

    Thanks for the reply, ah ok i didn't realise there was a common fault with injectors on these what exactly is the fault is it to do with the cr or injectors theirselves? , but would that create a whistle or the sucking noise? Or do you suspect those to be separate issues? Would this show up on vcds? As I did a scan a few weeks back and it didn't pick up on that although it want to do another one tomorrow, weather permitting i get tomorrow to look at my car (the weather hasn't really been giving me the days I can actually look at my car recently)

    The injectors wear, it is a well known and VAG acknowledged problem dealt with by installing an upgraded set of injectors. The noise is usually a blocked breather system caused by poor oil change intervals, i.e. the ones recommuby Audi......
