    When my A4 1.8T did that it turned out to be the key (RFID Chip) it started and cut out after a few seconds. Tried the spare key and nearly fell over when it worked.
    Could be anything in reality and as said you need to run a diagnostic on it.

    Could it be anything worse than the above like cambelt or engine knackered?
