    Hey guys,
    My 1.8t a3 sometimes stalls or cuts out on me when i come to a stop or dip the clutch, its as if the revs are dropping too quick. I have recently fitted a dump valve (which is comming off soon, bloody annoying!!) but this happened a few times before i fitted it!
    Ive had it checked out and found a fault with the wastegate release valve (I think thats what he said!)

    Has anyone experienced this problem? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif
