quick question hopefully
car - late 2001 a4 avant 2.5tdi v6 quattro 110k not sure on engine number will check and post
while driving along at about 60mph not acceleating or slowing a sudden blip in power occured not for long maybe half a second and then back to normal, this happened twice in a short space of time,i did notice that the temp guage had stopped workin at this time for about 10 - 15 secs, and when the temp guage came back online everything seemed ok- can the temp guage affect the running of the engine? ive never noticed it not work before
i had a look around under the bonnet and the connection between the pipe from the airbox and the airflow meter was loose and slightly opening, not completely open,i have tightened this up and i havn't suffered the blip again yet.
the engine temp guage has always sat around 60-70 is this normal? or does it seem dodgy:hi:
