    Hello all. I have a2007 s3. Been out in the snow and have a hesitation problem over 2500 rpm. I have no fault lights on dash board,it seems to be popping through exhaust...and doesn't want to rev. But when I dip clutch all seems ok. I've never had this problem before. Any ideas please guys nd girls

    Don't think so even turned ESP off and seemed to make no difference.

    hmmmm so is it like a miss fire but only under load?

    Ignition wise, Hesitation would usually bring up a light, whether it be coil,injector, plugs so at the second im stumped

    S3 hesitation problem. Help please

    Ok not sure if it feels the same as my a3 tfsi recently was driving to Manchester and all of a sudden was getting the odd misfire very gentle ones to start with under load. After 300 miles they got worse to the point I had three in a row and my Ecl came on. Scanned it and found a misfire on cylinder 2 new plugs and a new coil pack on 2 (coil packs were only new from audi last year but I figured a bad plug could put strain on it) and she is back to better than normal. Go for new plugs :-)

    Sounds like plugs or coils, but if its had new plugs, then of course cant be these unless they're rubbish non oem's.
