Last wednesday my 2002 S3 went a little funny on me.
I was sitting at a roundabout and when I went to set off the car struggled as soon as I hit the throttle, by struggled I mean the revs would drop very quickly causing the car to stall out. This happened a few times and when I managed to get the car going it sounded like it was not firing properly... and the check engine light came on followed by the ESP light.
I turned the car on again and these lights are off but the car still sounds like it is missfiring/not running properly
Bought myself a OBDII reader and got up the following codes:
17608 - N249 valve
17743 - Engine torque monitor - level exceeded (possibly as I had to keep revs high as I was to stop the car from stalling out?)
Am i right in thinking i need to clear these codes first and double check that they are new ones?
I have read a lot about the common coilpack issue on these cars, should this not throw up a code if it was these at fault?
any help would be much appreciated
