Drove to work yesterday and the car drove like always.....without missing a beat.
Started the car after my shift and it started as usual. No problems.
Set off and during each gear change the revs dropped really low (no red lighhts on dash though). Stopped at some lights and car idled fine......about 20 secs, then dropped. Rev needle went to bottom, red lights came on, quick blip on throttle and it revved slightly but not as much as it would of done normally. Revs back upto circa 750rpm, and same happened few secs later.
Lights changed and went to set off but as soon as i touched the throttle, the revs dropped to almost stalling. Did this 4 times. So i had to give it some throttle to 3.5k rpm before car would set off without it wanting to stall. Drove 2 miles and at the roundabout, the same thing happened as at the lights. This carried on for the next 3 roundabouts (over 4miles).
Got it onto a dually and didn't floor it but gave it a little. Pulled up at my mates house 8mins later and it was idling fine. But it really smelt 'eggy' from the cats.
Drove it for about 45 miles last night and touch wood it didn't try and stall but it has lost power. Acceleration ain't as sharp or repsonsive.
just scanned it and still only showing the basic throttle settings fault.
Any other ideas?
I did remove the black cover on the throttle the other day to see what the tracks were like and all was clean and grease free.
Going away next weekend to see a mate (and drool over his 2000MY RS4!!) and don't want to be stuck at the side of the road!!
