Another coilpack problem it seems!
My car had to be taken back to the dealer last week(A3 quattro sport '2001 with only 14000 miles- I don't go v. far!). Engine management system light went on whilst accelerating from the lights. Garage found 3 faults Turbo Recirculation Valve, Coolant Temp Sensor and two coils had to be replaced ... all at a bargain price of £363 - car still has less power and feels like stalling.
Then I find out from this website, it's been a common problem which I had no idea about!! Back in touch with dealer who says that I can have a refund only for the coils + labour to fit them but I have to pay for the rest. Does anyone know if these parts and problems are related because I have no clue about cars!
