    Throttle sensor or it could be an engine managment fault a full scan will show the problem, but as we dont know where you are or the spec of your Audi we wont be much help

    More likely the injector pump sadly, common fault.

    Sometimes a garage will change the fuel filter and/or the lift pump to get you going short term and then it goes again, still requiring the £600 vp44 pump.

    I believe Diesel Bob does a good deal on exchange

    a scan should tell you wants not going on. the pumps do pack up or rather the ecu mounted on the top of it does.

    the reference needle sensor is worth checking out too. the 3rd injector on the o/s bank has a wire coming from it. comes under the edge of the rocker cover and goes to a plug mounted on the baulkhead. check it with a multi meter. should have around 100ohms....... if its open circuit change it.
