    Flat spot A3 1.8T Quattro

    Hi can any one help I own a 1999 vreg A3 1.8T Quattro. When accelerating hard (foot to the floor) in 2nd 3rd and 4th I get a loss of power at around 3500 to 4000rpm if i ease of the throttle slightly the car seems to accelerate better. iam a car mechanic but not at Audi ive been told it might be the maf has any one else had this fault.

    Sounds like the MAF to me too!

    Either give it a clean (do a search and you'l find instructions) or get a replacement on exchange basis from your dealer for approx 80.

    Cheers
    Rich.

    high% alcohol cleaner, but for 80quid i would get a new 1, i tried cleaning mine, but it didnt improve, but when i replaced it i noticed a big difference espec in low down pull and throttle response.
