    Angry More 3.2 woes - Engine Management Light flashing - hesitant acceleration

    After 6 months of struggling to sort out lumpy idle and the engine cutting out I've had a good run of no issues until this morning on the way to work...

    Driving along the A1 and all of a sudden the engine management light starts flashing and acceleration becomes hesitant/lumpy. The Engine Management Light only seems to flash under acceleration and I cant be certain but, it appears it happens from around 30-40mph upward.

    Does anyone know what this could be? is this symptomatic of a coil pack failing?


    Once my local indie dealer opens up im going to try and book it in this afternoon for a diagnostic but any advice/opinions would be appreciated...

    As much as I love the car I'm getting to the point now where it's going to have to go

    ... I should add, the engine does sound a little rough and as if it isnt 'firing on all cylinders'.

    Am I right in thinking that the Engine Management Light flashing is less serious than it being permanently lit? :S

    Mine did flashing light, before it did solid light. Audi quoted 4500 to fix. I think I was unlucky though.

    It could well be just coil packs, so hopefully no need to panic yet!

    Cheers Pete. I'm obviously hoping it's simply the coil pack(s) however, I dont have much luck either when it comes to VAG cars - fingers crossed.
