Diesel engine 1.6 CAYC
Technical specifications.
4 cylinder, 1,598 cm³ turbo-diesel engine developed by the VAG group.
The engine has a double overhead camshaft and 16 valves.
Common rail direct injection system with piezoelectric injectors.
Charge air system with variable geometry turbocharger and intercooler.
Catalytic converter with particulate filter.
EGR solenoid valve with exhaust gas recirculation cooling.
Meets Euro 5 anti-pollution standard.

Torque and power curves:

Exhaust gas recirculation EGR.
The purpose is to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. A part of the exhaust gases are fed back into the combustion process. The engine control unit regulates the flow of recirculated exhaust gases, while taking into consideration the engine speed, the amount of aspirated air, the aspirated air temperature, amount injected and air pressure.

P2294 fault codes recorded in the AUDI TT

From our Call Centre, we have been able to confirm the repetition of several faults in the Audi TT, where a code relating to the fuel pressure has been recorded.

08852 – P2294 – Fuel pressure regulating valve (N276). Interruption.
18726 – P2294 – Fuel pressure regulating valve (N276). Interruption.

In this case, the displayed fault code reading from the engine control unit will be fault code P2294 but, depending on the diagnostic tool used, it is possible that a decimal code will be recorded that may match the two options we give.

The Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) is on due to a fault in the fuel circuit and there is a considerable lack of power.

The cause of this fault is a failure of the power supply of the fuel pressure regulating valve (N276), which comes from the engine component relay (J757).

To properly repair this fault, take the following steps:

- Check the electrical connection of the fuel pressure regulating valve and its power supply.

Thanks to our dis-net tool, we can access the engine diagram, the location and the monitoring of values of the fuel pressure regulating valve as shown in the image.
