    Hesitation when revs hit 2800+ - A3/8P 170 Sportback 57 plate TDi Manual

    Hey guys, I'd like a bit off info before I take my car to the garage. Just recently I have been having this problem where when I hit 2800+ revs under accelaration my car hesitates (badly). I have just had the injectors done under the recall and hoped it would cure it but it hasn't.. Sometimes it can be fine all day, then the next day its the same old problem..

    Its got 50k on the clock

    Any info would be good please..

    Cheers

    Chris

    Check fuel filter mate 1st, if its black as your hat, swap it out, maybe even fuel pump under rear seat, if continues then need to do some vcds logs of engine at these revs.

    Was gonna suggest using some vpower or bp ultimate too. I know its more expensive but its worth it
