    Strange idle problem

    Lately i've noticed that my engine idles bang on 1000rpm. This isn't even after a cold start, it just happens randomly (maybe once a week if that). Normally its around 800 rpms and bounces up and down slightly, but when it idles at 1000rpm the needle sits there solid, doesn't move at all like it does when it idles normally. The problem seems to stay the length of a journey and goes away after i've switched the engine off.

    It doesn't affect the way the car drives, but just seems strange.

    Any ideas?

    Idle sticky S3 8P

    Jay have you sorted the idle problem, mines gets stuck between 1500 and 2000 rpms, does not affect driving, just a little annoying when you stop and the idle is stuck between 1000 - 2000 rpms.
    Vag does not show any faults, any solutions
