    Afternoon chaps.

    My 1999 A3 1.6 is giving me a lot of grief! It is hunting on idle (which i hear is common with this engine) it also has a slight misfire, mainly when under load.

    i have noticed it also seems to be using quite a bit of water.

    These problems seem to be why it has failed the MOT on emissions. Does anyone have any ideas what could be the problem/had any similar issues themselves?

    Could it be the Lambda?

    Any help would be awesome, thanks guys
