    Hi, has anyone experienced a miss fire/ hesitation on acceleration on revs 2500 upwards with this engine or similar (2.0 tdi 170 bhp)?

    I was thinking it maybe duff diesel, however after trying different fuel stations and 6 fill ups the problem is still there, however it can be intermittent and does appear to be more prominent when 1st filling up.


    Look forward to anybody who can help, thanks

    I've got the 170 engine, but mines an s-tronic box. The pullaway can be abit hesitant, but once its moving mines really smooth. I have spoken to an audi technician before about this and he told me that the 170 engine is abit abbrasvie and aggressive by its nature..

    Not sure if this helps!!
