    Okay we have a sick rep for the S3:

    1. Coolant Temp Sensor faulty - changed
    2. Pre Cat Lamba Probe open circuit/dead - not changed
    3. Thermostat broken - not changed
    4. Forge diverter valve on the car also said will be part of the problem (in their opinion)

    Going to change the probe and stat myself see what the car does then

    Just done the test on the diverter valve and that seems okay

    Audi mentioned high knock recorded, probably guess this is due to the O2 sensor been broke...

    If the wide band lambda is dead then the ECU has no idea how to adjust the fuelling for the engine so I very much suspect you are in limp mode. Change the lambda and that should sort out most of the issues you currently describe...

    Okay latest update:

    Whilst waiting for Stat and Lamba sensor fit, tried the MAF test and ran much better unplugged so guess that needs a new one too.

    After Stat fitted low oil pressure warning came up so back at the garage again getting checked for sludging or faulty sensor.

    Not having much look....lol

    Okay guessing it cant get any worse..... car decides every once in a while to suggest no oil pressure, straight away turn the engine off and on and it is okay???? Then last night suspect turbo whine and car still feeling a little sluggish. Is it all signs of turbo failure or signs that the engine has started to kill the turbo? Any help would be good. Thanks

    If I were you I wouldn't drive the car at all. If the low oil pressure symbol keeps coming up it'll most likely be due to sludge in the engine.

    Where did you buy the car from? A garage or privately?
