    when started the revs goes up past 1k rpm and if you set off to drive it shudders as you try and pull away but if you leave it for 1 minute the revs drop back down below 1k rpm and its fine.
    what could be causing this and can it be fixed. its been doing it pritty much since i got and i am curious as to what the hell it is.
    thanks for any help

    I've got exactly the same problem....Annoying as f***

    I was thinking the throttle body and MAF may need a clean so am planning to do this soon.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem. I had it checked with VAG.COM dude's in Kent and they pulled up a engine coolant sensor thats probably causing the problem.
    They cost £26 ish from Audi dealers. MAKE SURE you get a 'Green' sensor as this is the new one.
