My car is an 07 TDI 170
When driving there is often a hesitation under acceleration for maybe half a second whilst pulling through the rev range it then usually carries on ok but it sometimes hesitates multiple times through one gear. Once the car is fully warm and had a good blast the problem goes away. The car also feels like it is hunting a tiny bit at traffic lights, nothing to make the rev needle move but a slight blip every now and again (I initially presumed this was a characteristic of the engine)
Also a week or so ago I had 2 fault codes one was 00552 and the other read along the lines of engine speed sensor- implausible speed reading. I cleared them with VAG com and they have never returned.
Anybody have any idea what the issue may be with the engine hesitation?
