Hereís a weird one for you, Iím new to modern diesels so could be quite normal.

Changed the battery on my 2007 Audi 2.0TDi, the engine was warm when I shut it off and changing the battery took me 20 minutes. When I started the car after changing the battery it was chucking out diesel smoke for fun for about the first mile then cleared. When I pulled back up at home it was burning cleaning as a whistle? Its not been a smokey car since I bought it and has been fine since.

Why did you charge a battery for 20 minutes? It will receive more charge from the alternator running for 30 seconds.

Complete guesswork but yes, does sound like it need to get its act together after losing the memory.

Update on this, from ages ago! Problem persisted and I also suffered from a hesitation on light acceleration too. Anyway, I had issues with the VAC controller which was replaced along with the inlet manifold and it cured the hesitation. The smoking remained anyway, mainly if I drove the car to its running temp then turned off the engine and started it an hour later. When at temp it was clean as a whistle. So now Iíve had the fuel filter changed and the DPF (which was 96% blocked) terracleaned. The DPF was blocked because of a faulty EGR valve which inhibits the DPF from regenning. Anyway, problems solved for now and the DPF has automatically regenned which it didnít do before. Watch this space got its MOT next month, if problem persists, the injectors will be coming out and go away for testing, then thatís the whole inlet side investigated!

The vac controller is part of the inlet manifold so you canít swap just that part. I mainly wanted to update in case anyone else has a similar issue and ends up here.

Anyway, as it happens, itís still not fixed the smoking issue

I have also spent the past year worried sick about your smoky engine battery change issue. Thanks for the update


I would rather lose by a mile because i built my own car, than win by an inch because someone else built it for me.
