Hi. We have a 2000 W reg Audi A4 Tdi 130. We have 2 problems with it.
Firstly when you accelerate hard the revs go up as normal then all of a sudden they completely die as if there is no boost or little fuel. I replaced the air flow meter about 6 months ago, so I guess it's not that. Any ideas?
The second problem is to do with the steering. There is a funny slight looseness that feels just like a ball joint is worn (on the end of the steering rack). But these both (left and right) seem fine, BUT, where the ball joints screw onto the rod coming from the steering rack, the threads seem to have 'play' in them, almost as if the threads where in a rubber housing. This is the same on both sides. If this is normal then I guess our problem is the steering rack? What do you think?
PLEASE reply to this as soon as possible as I have to sort it out tomorrow!
