    Audi A3 1.8T 01 plate, engine management light

    Hi there,

    Ive recently brought an Audi A3 1.8T and within a few weeks of having it, it began to misfire and I had one of the coils changed.

    Now the engine management light has come up without the car misfiring.

    Engine dips in revs in the morning and pressing the accelerator in gear does not build any revs, I assume this has something to do with the fact it is very cold.

    Could this have anything to do with the engine management light coming on?

    Any advice is greatly welcomed as this is my first car.

    Thanks

    Scan the car with VAG-COM / VCDS and check for codes. Without this it is just guessing.

    8L IS DE BEST
