My name's Ian. Got a 2000 A3 Quattro Turbo. As far as I'm aware it's been remapped and has the obvious addition of an FMIC. It was flying and running great until recently.
To quote the guy that did the vagcom for me "FMIC install looks a little slap-dash" :laugh:
Anyway, to diagnose whatever's wrong with it they'd need it in for the day and could end up costing a fortune for the diagnosis alone.
Basically, it's running fine driving normally, but try and boost it and you'll get that initial kick then it's like it's hit a wall and won't give it anymore power.
I'm sure I can hear the sound of air escaping which leads me to think it's a leak. Spotting where tho is a bit of a struggle. All pipes/hoses have been tightened, etc.
The faults were as follows... :(
16500 - Engine Coolant Temp Sensor
16622 - Manifold Pressure / Boost Sensor
Signal Too High
16486 - Mass Air Flow Sensor
Signal Too Low
16490 - Manifold / Barometric Pressure
17743 - Engine Torque Monitor 2
Maximum Limit Exceeded
17521 - Oxygen Sensor B1 S1
Internal Pressure Too High
I already knew about the coolant temp sensor problem and this was about before this recent problem started.
Am I right in thinking that an air leak could trigger all of the above?
If anyone could suggest anything then I'd be very very greatful :)
