    Wel, it seems most likely to Me Glenn. when i took mine to Audi the guy said it was a fueling glitch to do with air flow. i havnt been able to prove him wrong so far........

    As I said before I think its a map issue

    It seems very odd to me that the R32 had this exact issue and they brought a new map out for them that cured it!!!!

    Hi all , just found this forum ironicaly after owning a A3 3.2 DSG for nearly 4 years... found you guys hunting for information on its probable replacement... (A4 Avant 2.0 T Quattro S-line Special Edition)

    Anyway on to topic Ive had the car since 12k and it has now done 63k ish pretty reliably engine wise its never hunted or hesitated , been on the long life services (which has meant every 14 to 15k with the way I drive it) and has averaged about 23 MPG over that time covering everything from Mway Cruises (26 to 28 at a steady 75 to 85 cruise) or alot less on my 9 mile B road blast to work every day. The internals of the engine still look bright n shiney even with the long life oil changes.

    The only significant issue Ive ever had engine wise was a failed coil pack which started with hesitation at 1500 to 2000 rpm but it didnt last long before complete failure (ie about 2 days) so for me the engine & DSG box are the best bits of the car...

    The only issue Ive had is 1k's worth of work last summer to replace the prop shaft UJ at the front that was knocking like a b*****d and the front suspension bushes .... both of which were sent back to Audi for inspection as they weren't supposed to wear that quickly.

    So best of luck to you guys cant add anything to help your woes but can say that not all the 3.2's have these issues.

    Last time i took mine in i told them of the issue with the R32 and the remap and they checked to see if it was available for the Audi but as they refuse to admit there is a problem they are hardly going to say they have a fix ! i went to look at a TTS today but the bottom line is that if Audi cant help with a problem like this i would be a bit daft to buy another Audi so i have shelved that idea again.

    No pi$$ take mate, but could that be 4.0L W8? As is the Passat one? I know it would make no sense, but it is a remarkably similar designation.

    Coxyladd's already changed his relay to no effect!

    I have the 16398 code which is the same as the 16395 that you have Paddy, but for the exhaust, although I have also had that code as well in the past. Both the vvt's and the camshaft sensors have been replaced on mine and tbh they both can't be faulty, so it must be something indirectly causing it . Next on my list is the oil pump but not just yet, I might just book it into the dealers first and see what they say.
    What I can't understand is it doesn't seem to affect other cars with the same engine, maybe the internals are slightly different? From what I can remember mine is a BMJ.

    A bit of searching around for the 16395 fault code brought this up

    there is whole bunch of good things that will cause the code in the BBW.

    Cam timing belt incorrect basic setting.
    Cam position sensor faulty or loose.
    Faulty wiring connection or harness fault.
    Oil pressure incorrect or incorrect pump installed.
    Wrong oil filter.
    Bolt loose on camshaft to adjuster unit or incorrect torque or reuse of stretch fastener.
    Faulty camshaft adjuster unit gear from sludge contamination or broken return spring internal.
    Faulty camshaft adjuster valve to control oil pressure position.
    Intermittent means sporadic or doesn't happen all the time or occasionally. You can run tests on the cam timing adjuster in basic settings.
    01-04-094 and look at bin bits in 4th field all the way to right.
    Your goal is 100 if you get a 1 all the way to the right this indicates a failure or DTC is now present during test.
    Although it's not our engine, some of the pointers seem relevant

    The poster also says he is a VW/Porsche/Audi master tech!

    Thanks for that Julian.
    I will try the relay as its very cheap. Interestingly it has done this erratic running game from start 4 times in 5 weeks so its very random but this is the first time its had a fault code. Seems to be when the air temp is cold. If you switch off and re start it usually does the trick.

    Wow Paddy, that's some fault list lol!
    I've changed my oil pump this weekend and although it's early days it does seem a heck of a lot better. It idles smooth as you like now and feels a lot more free reving. However the jumping around at 2k when stationary is still there although less than before. I'm going to put a few miles on the clock to give it time to adapt and then drop the oil out and put mobil 1 in.
    First impresions though are definately positive

    ah balls, I was pinning my hopes on the oil pump.

    throttle body could be one to try.

    I have been told by a guy who is **** hot with race engines that its the throttle body. He looked at my car and revved it a couple of times and just said throttle body...without a doubt ! i will pull it off tomorrow and have a look. It might be just dirty but if the stepper motor of carbon tracks are shot then i will have to get some prices for a new one.

    I have have examined mine, it was as clean as a whistle, but doesnt say its not knackered inside.

    My mate is bringing the one of his spare engine up for me tomorrow, I will swap it over and check.

    thing is thought, v6pete fixed his and he didnt change the throttle body. unless he had a very different problem to us.

    well the only thing that v6 pete changed that i havent yet is the oil pump, and julians just done his to no avail. doesnt make sense.
    will try the throttle body this week hopefully, then if that doesnt fix it its the oil pump.

    How much are oil pumps?

    I wouldn't say it's to no avail Ian, the car is a different animal and has definately made a big difference, even the missus says so! I was getting misfiring from 1200rpm to 2800rpm, now it's restricted to between 1600rpm and 2000rpm and it drives a lot smoother, where it used to hesitate up certain hills, it doesnt now. However as I said earlier the missing is still there so at the moment it's not a complete fix, will try a throttle body adaptation tonight and see if that improves it.
    How many miles does it take for the ECU to adapt, I've done about 50 so far?

    The throttle bodys coke up due to oil vapor being recycled through the system. They need to be very carefully cleaned with brake or carb cleaner but not sprayed direct. Dont force the butterfly flap open. there is a small stepper motor attached. so clean it from both sides. even that will not account for a faulty stepper motor or carbon track ( potentiometer) but its a start. Re align it with vagcom.
    There are some interesting articles on the web if you search "Cleaning throttle body"...

    car has been to the garage, hooked up to lap top & out on the road, firstly when car cold this morning prior to going to garage ,reved to 2k no bother & very smooth, got to garage warmed up would'nt do 2k ,back to road test,done varied runs ie speeds etc. the throttle setting seem fine, the only thing showing was the thermostat sticking @ 82 deg instead of 90 deg. @ speed the 82 would probebly go down to 78 deg. causing the car to throw in more fuel ,like when starting car from cold, which might be my low mpg .apart from this the car is fine. i've stated all the things you guy's have done,the 2 chaps @ garage recon it's down to the mapping of the car and unless audi bring out re-map like thr r32, it's something we'll have to put up with. as much has he would love to take my money off me. so cars booked in for new thermastat next week,will update. ps.i asked the question of , seen the throttle is wire less could it be the throttle pedal sensers.but aparently the pedal has 2 sensors 1 of which is get me home mode, and if faulty would show up. [just with toyota in the news .just thought no one had mentiond

    I would love to think that was the answer but.............mine only started doing it after 40k miles AND its getting steadly worse ( see fault codes above.) some times its so bad now that i have to stop, switch off and re start which cures it. This is partly why i think its the throttle body because that does a sweep and re sets its self when you stop and re start. also i have had a remap....And as you say its fine on initial start up which again points to airflow/mixture.

    also the peddle does have 2 potentiometers and one is get you home .......which i am sure is a 2k rpm limit and these pots work together but while both sweep to 2k only one carries on above that. i refuse to believe this no fault code no problem attitude when my car clearly has a problem. Fault codes are only a rough idea.

    the garage also said some times issues like we are getting,would point to lamba sensors [being old] and not responding/changing information quick enough, but he's adament it's mapping issues, and although he re-maps he would not garantee success. in all honesty my car has done 59k.and i think i could live with these issues as they are ever so slight.just thought if there was quick fix to get perfect running, i would go for it. plus i've got 12month warranty
