    Guys,

    This exact same thing happened to me last night!! Was driving home after being out (drove fine on the way out) and everytime I came to a junction, lights or just to a stop where the revs dropped below 1k the car would lose all power.

    The battery and engine management lights came on as if I had stalled, along with the ESP light (which is now constantly on).

    I managed to get her re-started and nurse her home using alot of revs but every time I needed to stop she just cut out again!

    When I got home, I started her up just sitting on the drive, she would fire up fine but immediately cut out when the revs dropped to idle!!!

    At first I thought it may have been the battery (cold weather and all) but the lights and everything else seem to be working fine, so I can only assume maybe a coil pack, cold start valve or idle control valve being faulty

    Has anyone managed to sort their problem out???

    Will be sending it to my mechanic shortly.....

    Nice One!

    Ryan

    My car has been at Soton Audi since 23rd of Dec, they wanted me to have it back unfixed but I complained to Audi Uk. Got the mater escalated technically through Audi Uk, because Soton Audi have been rubbish.

    The conclusion they are now at (already had MAF replaced) is it was a partially blocked fuel filter that ever now and then would cause the engine to run lean and a fault to be detected which looked like there was a problem with the MAF. Luckily Audi UK are paying for the filter and all the investigation work from the 23rd because I have been messed around by Soton Audi so much.

    They are doing more testing over the weekend and will maybe pick car up on 23rd. If it really was some thing as easy as this I am very disappointed it has taken this long to find it. Although at this point I am not 100% confident that this is the actual fault.

    Ok guys, quick update....been with the mechanic since Fri, he did a scan on VAGCOM which showed fault codes relating to MAF, Mixture, banks 1 and 2 etc... Lead him to believe that the MAF was at fault.

    He cleared all the fault codes and the car now seems to be idiling / running smoothly again with no problems.

    He doesnt want me to fork out for a new MAF just yet incase it was just a blip so is going to give it back and if it goes again will take it back in, re-scan it and if the same fault codes show then replace the MAF.

    Hellz - I have read the full thread, received the car back from my mechanic last night; all seems to be ok again (for now), he cleared the fault codes which cleared all the warning lights on the dash and too the car out of what I can only assume was limp mode. He showed me a print out of the faults, one of which was to do with the MAF, the others could have all been related, mixture fault, banks 1 and 2.

    Fingers crossed it was just a blip, he said if it happens again then take it back to him if we get the same codes then are going to try changing the MAF and seeing if it makes a difference.

    Does anyone know how much a replacement genuine MAF from Audi costs?

    I think generally you're looking at around 70-80 fitted, at least thats what the receipt stated for mine - Dont quote me on that though

    The problem appears to have reared its ugly head again last night......GGRRRRRRRR!!
    The ESP light is constantly on and the car struggles to keep revs below 1000k and a majoirty of the time will cut out!

    I have already replaced the MAF from the first time so unless this one has failed too then I guess this wasn't the problem.

    Looks like it's back to the drawing board and back into my mechanic to see what fault codes have been logged this time. Will keep you informed.

    Hey guys, looks like I'm reviving an on-going thread here but I actually own a Porsche Audi/VW repair facility in Kansas and have had FOUR different models of Audi's come through in the last 6 months or so with this exact same problem... All of them were around 2002 or 2003 models and it was the Fuel Pump Relay... It seems they have a shelf life from Audi and a lot are currently crapping out. I know this is my first post and being a moderator on two other forums myself I understand there is usually an intro ritual to go through but I just wanted to get some information to anyone still trying to solve this issue. I hope it helps a few of you!

    ijeremy. Thanks for the info. Mines just come back from the garage who
    did the usual and installed a new Air Flow Metre and its running again but
    for how long I don't know. If mine plays up again I'll try the Fuel Pump Relay.
    How much does the relay cost??

    Thanks in advance. Nez

    Hi everyone,

    3.2L DSG, 04 plate. A few weeks ago I'd been on a ten mile trip, stopped at a junction the engine then cut out. The ESP light was on (Bizarrely) Every time it restarted the revs dropped and the engine died (after a few goes at this the engine light came on as well as the ESP light). RAC man ran diagnostics and no faults were found. Started the car again and it ran in limp mode (very lumpy). Switched it off, then back on again and it ran fine - been fine since.

    Sounds like a few people have had the same issue - did any of you manage to solve it (eg is it the fuel pump relay?)?

    Cheers,
    Adam

    Forgive the 'test' wrote an essay before and it wouldn't let me post, anyway, first of all thanks to Hellz for the reply to my PM, tried to PM back but it wouldn't let me??? lol, this site is definitely an Audi!!
    I had THE EXACT symptons as the top of the thread, garages all said MAF blah, blah, read about stretched TC's and thought surely not!! it still runs fine at load. Anyway, took things into my own hands, disconnected maf, no change, cleaned out TB noticed lots of oily black shizzle around the butterfly, obv keeping the intake open when brain thinks it shut = stall. Started and idled perfect at 600?

    EGR at fault??

    OK, so meanwhile back at the ranch, a couple of times I've had coolant warning on, so filled it and thought nothing of it, but now here's the thing and feel free to tell me I'm talking broken biscuits here, but the oily black gunk must have been unburnt fuel and exhaust gas being fef back into the TB via EGR valve, if this valve is leaking a little coolant hence the warning light, into the EGR and causing this coolant-fuel-exhaust sludge to affect the butterfly? So im gonna' sunday morning the EGR off (hopefully) soak it overnight in petrol, clean and replace and see how I get on.

    I would like to know what causes this as well, i too have had this problem.
    Cured it by cleaning the air flow sensors along with whatever sensors and connections I could reach. Took apart the air filter housing and inlet pipes and cleaned the MAF.
    Had to do a master reset to clear the errors then re-train the electric windows.....sorted (knock on wood )
    After reading this thread it seems to be a reccuring problem for people.
    Updates as to how everyone is now getting on would be useful.
    ....................I'll make a build thread one day.

    Digging this up again as I've had the same issue with my 3.2 (manual)

    Was going to clean up my MAF and will think about getting the fuel pump relay and popping to Audi to get the ECU done. Just wanted to cross reference another couple of options;

    * Has anyone with a problem had the coil pack recall done?

    * Has anyone with a problem had the ECU software update done? (Not just a factory reset but the update that's intended to clear the 2k hesitation issue)

    I'm hoping everyone says no, might provide a light at the end of the tunnel...

    I had the software update done on Tuesday I had a rough idle the car now runs a lot smoother I think audi have many updates for various issues however since having the update done my secondary water pump does not run after I shut the car off . Have you cleaned your throttle body ? Or carried out alignment with vcds

    Just in the process of cleaning up the throttle body and MAF sensor at the moment - when I get a chance amongst my 12 hour nightshifts over the weekend. Had the VCDS on to check and clear codes (I've another thread running for that as I hadn't spotted this one then) but not done alignment as yet.

    Okay, got the car booked in to Portsmouth Audi in a couple of weeks to get the software update and I'm also due the coil pack replacement. Will see if this prevents it from coming back.
