    some strange problem with my audi a4 1.9tdi

    hi guys hope someone could point me towards the right direction on here, my car which is a audi a4 1.9tdi 130bhp 52 plate, everytime it rains or whenever i wash my car, the car seems to be very sluggish, for example when i drive and put my full foot down on the gas pedal it could take upto around 5 seconds for the car to respond, and in 1st gear it wants more gas than usual to get it goin.

    anyone got any idea what the problem might be its been couple of months i changed my maf sensor and i think its called a map sensor (boost control sensor) the car has had a service done around 6 months ago

    any help would be appriciated.

    cheers

    the solenoid valve behind the o/s headlight that controls the EGR valve gets drowned in water and causes the hesitation your experiencing.. you may be able to get at it when your cars running well, i.e when its dry, and cover it up with something

    when you get the new one just pull the pips of the old one and unclip it but make sure you put the pips on the new one in the same order as your old one
