    TDi hesitant/ misfire engine problems

    Hi all, has anyone experienced and corrected engine hesitation/ miss fire on a tdi?

    At about 2500 - 3,000 rpm and above I have a real problem with car holding back and becoming jerky & hesitant, the problem is there most of the time but is more noticable when engine under pressure. Tried different garages when filling up with diesel + additives but this hasn't worked. Driving the car below Ł2500 rpm no problems & no problems starting.

    Thinking it maybe the fuel filter, please any ideas/possible solutions much appreciated.

    The car is A3 sportback Quattro, TDi 170 BHP, Oct 1996. Ł35,000 miles

    Had problem fixed by Audi, it was the fuel pump leaking oil into fuel and injectors. Ł500 lighter fixed and running like a dream.

    Fuel pump leaking oil into fuel & injectors, can you elaborate on that a bit as didnt think the pump had any oil or oil linked.
