    Audi A3 1.8T AGU Engine
    Hi, i was having problems re starting car when warm as well as high revs on first start up.
    Having scoured this site i ordered a 'crank sensor' and everything seemed to sort itself out.
    A month later ie now, im having the same problems, engine turns over but struggles to fire up.
    When it does fire it runs fine after a few mis-fires.
    When i pull the MAF plug it dies straight away.
    Ive ordered new plugs which i'll get in this weekend.
    I'm fairly sure the fuel pump is ok otherwise it would'nt run fine once it eventully fires up.
    Any thoughts most welcome.
