Hi, Your reply has given some hope, in regards of the engine. I took the oil covered hoses off yesterday and checked the injectors, the air box at the top back of the engine interior is covered in sludge which is rock hard, not sounding good. Now there is a lot of white smoke coming out of the exhaust and loud electrical knocking noise, with intimitant reving of the engine. The fuel system did have some air in it. It's now parked up (I had to start it to move it this morning.) I'm thinking to get rid and either get a A6 Estate or 2.0T laguna estate?
