    Octavia Ambient 2.0tdi
  1. Water temperature sensor.

    Cheers that's spot on.. There is two but I presume the one on the radiator outlet is just for the cooling fans.
  2. Water temperature sensor.

    Cheers that's spot on..
  3. Hi people, I want to change the water temperature sensor on my 2.0 TDI BKD. Is it a difficult job? I had the air fillter housing out along with various hoses and ducting at the weekend but I couldn't locate it, on the 1.9 it was a simple job (apparently) but I can't find a good description of where this one is. Cheers.
  4. engine coolant temp sensor

    Cheers I will have a look this afternoon.
  5. Hi Chaps, I want to change my engine coolant temp sensor on my 08 2.0tdi. There is plenty on eBay but finding the correct one is difficult, has anybody changed one on this vehicle? I think it's BKD but I'll check asap. Thanks.
  6. Sticking front brakes

    Thanks, I have a 7mm ok so I may do that, I can strip the calipers on my motorbike with my eyes closed but I've never done a car (yet) hope it doesn't rain.
  7. Sticking front brakes

    Can what you say be done without disconnecting the caliper and having to bleed the whole system?
  8. Sticking front brakes

    Cheers for the excellant advice, I was hoping to clean them up without disconnecting them but you may be right I should do it properly..
  9. Hi chaps, I've had grabby front brakes for a while, I'm going to get the wheels and calipers off this weekend, do I need a wind back tool or can I push the pistons in & out a little without it? Im not disconnecting the caliper It's just to expose a small amount of the piston to clean it up with brake cleaner? It's a TDI 2.0. Cheers.
  10. No sound coming from my COLUMBUS???

    Mine does this occasionally, just turning the power off and back on fixes it, I've never got to the bottom of it.
  11. Limp mode

    Cheers it's always good to be optimistic, if the turbo needs replacing I can't complain, it's done 80k and hasn't needed any engine work in the 70k I've had it, just the front brake callipers have let me down.
  12. Limp mode

    Cheers for the info I've ordered a couple of bottles of the turbo cleaner worth a try, shame no fault codes ever show up to at least give me a clue.
  13. Limp mode

    Cheers, there is never any codes up before or after, how is Turbo cleaner applied? Is it added to the oil?
  14. Hi Chaps, I have a 2.0tdi (Pdi) and every time I go over 4000k rpm in the lower gears it goes into limp mode, its not very often I'm that high in the revs so its only occasional, its perfect again if I turn it off and back on, also there is never any fault codes show up so no help there. Anybody have anything I can try other than getting a recon turbo when it may not be that. Cheers.
  15. Hi chaps, I've had a problem with my Octavia for a few years with the engine turning over slow when hot and struggling to start, i fitted a new higher amp battery last year which didn't help so I'm going to try changing the water temp sensor, does anybody know where to get one from and are they all the same? Mines the BKD code will I need that to get the correct one? Cheers.
