Hello, I have finally joined the S3 8L gang after wanting one for so long.
I am extremely pleased with the car so far during my ownership, but have recently encountered a few faults, one of which has just occurred which is rather alarming.
Current faults are;
The car has been MTM tuned prior to my ownership, I thought it may be turbo related when I first noticed it on 'boost', but now I have realised that it even does it at low RPM in first, etc..
- Intermittent Cooling Fans - Should these run all the time, when stopped or when the engine reaches a certain temp. This has caused one temperature overheat warning so far, when I was outside talking to my mates with the car on idle.
- Brake Squeal upon low speed 'feathering', it has Mov'It front brakes and new callipers/pads/discs on the rear. (I have been told that filing the pads lightly and putting a leading edge on the pads could solve this)
- The new alarming fault - It seems that the car is loosing power, the power seems to drop off for a moment or it feels as if the car is juddering.
- Drivers side window doesn't wind down, no sound of the motor attempting it - When pushed in the 'up' position, the motor is activated, but then senses it is already at the top, and stops.
Any assistance would be appreciated folks, thanks!
