New member needing some help
Hey folks, had a problem with the car this morning and came across this site after looking for some info on google. So I'm hoping somebody here might be able to help as payday is 2 weeks away:rolleyes:
The car is a 2002 S3 with BAM engine.
Driving home from work yesterday I stalled the car in traffic. The engine had to turn over for a few seconds before it started again. After it started there didn't seem to be any other issues and I made it home okay.
Then this morning, car started first turn, driving into work and it misfired, about a minute later the oil pressure light came on and the car started to limp and eventually died. Checked oil level and no problems there. Tried re starting but the engine kept turning over but wouldn't fire, if you know what I mean?
An hour later, after letting the engine cool down, it started first time. I checked the coil packs and one of them was a bit loose. The top of the spark plug had some soot on it from arcing. I reseated the coilpack and car seemed to be running ok.
On the drive home the car misfired twice but it didn't die. Would this be because of the soot on the sparkplug? I'll have a socket tomorrow to remove the plug and I'll be able to VAG.com it on Friday.
Sorry for the long post, just wanted to give as much info as possible
