    HELP! something is wrong...............

    Guys,

    lastnight i swapped my wheels over for some mercedes monoblocks the car is sitting very low and i will be getting the coilovers raised up ASAP as it looks ridiculous this is off subject however it does give you a bit of detail as to what has been done to the car since the problem

    now to the PROBLEM!

    I started the car up lastnight after the swap of the wheels i had the lights on for a while whilst i was changing the wheels.On the start up the engine seemed to be juddering a bit and sounding not to healthy as it was cold i assumed this is what it was and left it until this evening as i did not drive to work today!

    SO i started it up this evening and the engine is juddering ALOT, Aswell as once firing cutting out after 10 seconds a couple of times, the rev gauge is not smooth and seems to be jumping up on idle and very unresponsive.

    Its a 2010 1.4 tfsi it had its First MOT last month and a full service and everything was fine....

    Does anyone have any idea what this could be

    HELP!

    Thanks in Advance Dec

    Are you sure you haven't broken the sump (oil pan) which is located underneath the engine due to the car being too low?? my car had the same problem when I broke my oil pan last week due to a raised drain in the road whilst there was road works going on, lucky I stopped the car and found the problem otherwise the whole engine could have got ruined.

    it is ridiculously low but it hasn't been moved at all really with the new alloys on! and wouldn't there be a leak from the sump? as i cant see any fluids?

    will there be any other tell tell signs if it is that?

    thanks

    If it has cracked it then yeah I guess oil will be leaking.. Check your dip stick see if it has oil?

    Remove battery leg for 10 minutes, then try again, it doesnt make sense if you only did the wheels.

    As NHN said, ecu reset seems to be the way forward. Did u have the car running on idle for any amount of time? I do this sometimes when im cleaning my car and its always a sluggish lil bar sterward for the first mile or two. Never had misfiring issues tho

    Guys just a quick update....
    local garage thinks it could be the coil pack on a petrol ? is this common
    he hasn't had a look at it YET just what he thinks it sounds like

    Any idea for the price I should be looking at for the repair

    THINKS ?

    tell him to scan it if its a pack it will show missfires

    yes they are common and easy to fit yourself but buy genuine the gsf euro can and do fail fast
    and cost around £40

    literally look like its sh@t itself! lol
    possibly the sump....but it just does NOT make sense as it hasn't moved much since putting the wheels on!
    if it is the sumps isit an expensive repair ?

    I'd be extremely more worried about the fact it was running bad & now its crapped itself, unless you dropped or lowered the car onto the sump, then I just cant see how that's happened.
