hi guys well i took the plunge and decided to go and get myself an s3 at the weekend its a 2000 plate, apy engine. But on the way home it just decided to cut out on the motorway, anyway after getting her back home and having a look over a few things there didnt seem to be anything wrong so just as a matter of fact i decided to try some more fuel in her even though it had a quater of a tank showing on the qauge. Once i had put a gallon of fuel in i spun her over and she fired straight up so i had a quick nosey in the fuel tank i noticed that there was a black corrugated pipe which had a kink in it this was fastened to a cream plastic thing on the bottom of the tank! question is could this pipe have caused the car to have cut out?
Also when the car is reved up on the spot and left to idle the rpm drops to about 500rpm then sorts itself out. does anyone no why this is?
all help greatly appreciated
