A3 juddering problem :( Help needed by the audi brainers
Would like help with any body who has had this problem or no of anybody who has fixed this,
I have a 1998 Audi A3 1.8T petrol (AGU engine) the car has just done 123,000 miles
I can be driving along normally then for no apparent reason when I accelerate the car hesitates and feels as if its missfiring,this was doing it about 4months ago then stopped and now has come back and is a real pain in the a** to drive help would be great ;)
It lasts for varying amounts of time then disappears. When the car is stationary with the bonnet up I can see the engine appear to misfire causing it to jerk every so often causing a popping/spluttering noise from the exhaust. This doesnt always happen so cant put my finger on what it is.
A couple of times I have been sat at lights and the revs drop to almost stall point but then it corrects itself. last week it was really bad,
I have had a new maff fitted about 5 months ago so hope it is not that,also things i have done to my car full servise 8,000 miles ago,exhaust cat back,piper-cross panel filter,remap and 007p d-v,
Would be great if any body could help me on this thanks alot ;)
