A3 2.0 FSI misfiring ? Timing out/coils/other HELP!!
Hi all, just had a report from the garage on my 03 plate A3 2.0 FSI which has been misfiring recently - it runs ok under throttle -(if a bit sluggish) but idles really badly (seems like the whole car is shaking but not as if it's going to stall). The emissions warning light is permanently on.
The garage have said that the crank position sensor may be faulty or it may be something else requiring stripping down the motor - timing belt slipped or something :wtf:
The guy on the phone says the reading was something like "timing position sensor reading not attained "
The spark plugs are badly fouled too, he said. (No surprise that one).
Has anyone any experience of this problem ? I don't want some spanner monkey delving deeply into my engine randomly..
Thanks in advance for any assistance
