Self Study Program 920213 – The Second Generation 3.0L V6 TDI Engine

Self Study Program 920213 – The Second Generation 3.0L V6 TDI Engine PDF. The success story for V6 TDI engines at Audi began in 1997 with the introduction of the world’s first four-valve 2.5 liter V6 TDI with a distributor injection pump fuel system.

In late 2003, this engine was followed by a 3.0 liter V6 TDI with common rail fuel injection. A power reduced 2.7 liter version was introduced in 2004 but was not offered in the U.S. market.

V6 TDI engines have evolved with much success in various Audi and VW Group models.

The second generation 3.0L V6 TDI engine features state-of-the-art diesel technology, such as a common rail fuel system with piezo fuel injectors, systematic thermal management, and extensive friction reducing improvements. This ensures that lower emissions and higher fuel economy are achieved.
