My 2001 AMK S3 is playing silly buggers with me and I have a long list of jobs to get sorted.
Top of the list is an engine management light that's displaying - 2 previous diagnostics have shown 1 being an intermittant missfire & 1 as running lean.
Now, the other problem is the fact that my cooler temp is showing 80c-85c when driving on open roads to work 40/50/60mph but then when slower through towns and idling it rises to 90c. Thought it was the cold weather but the previous 4 years of ownershsip cold weather has never affected it and it's always hit 90c everyday constantly. Is is possible that the 2 are linked somehow?
I am booked in this friday with Midlands VW for a more in depth diagnosis with the guys there to pin point exactly what's going on, but any ideas what to possibly expect?
Thermostat, MAF sensor, vacum hose?
Cheers for any help, need to get the car sorted ready for an M.O.T end of Feb.
