    Sympathetic dealers LMAO!!!.............seriously though, give your local dealer a shout first, there's no reason for them to be obstructive

    Pardon me guys n gals, this has been a very popular post and I'm being lazy trawling through it so apologies in advance for this BUT, does this problem also affect an S3 DSG?

    My S3 DSG is suffering low rev hesitation.

    Cheers,

    KKP

    Im having similar problems to what you describe above.

    when my engine is cool it runs fine, however when its warmed up and I stop at lights or the car is in neutral or park the revs go up to 1500 and then back down.

    ive checked the MAF and this is fine, ive also cleaned out the throttle body. Im thinking that it could be the idle control value. does anyone know whether these can be cleaned out as these are park of the TB.

    First you need to get someone with VCDS to down load any fault codes. You could spend a life time chasing the fault round otherwise.

    I had exactly the same behaviour about 2 months ago. Since then, the car's been in the garage three times:
    1) problem diagnosed as the timing chain being stretched, and the angle of the cam adjusters was incorrect, leading to strange firing behaviour. Fix was to replace the chain, and replace 2 cam adjusters
    2) got car back, after a few days, the emission control warning light came on. took to garage, got sensor replaced as the diagnostics unit had identified a fault (it was reading -20 degrees C when it was about +5)
    3) after a day or so, the car was exhibiting the same sort of issues. Exhaust Actuator identified as being in permanent retarded position, so it wasn't working properly. Got that replaced this week (well both inlet and exhaust actuators), and the car's been running fine and idling smoothly at 625rpm.

    Unfortunately, this is a rather pricey thing to get fixed:
    1) cost around £1700
    2) was around £80
    3) was around £750

    My car is 6 years old, is a A3 3.2 V6 DSG S-Line, with 74k miles on the clock. Apart from normal wear/tear/oil changes, this is the first piece of work been done on the engine.

    Any q's - give me a shout.

    Digging up this thread again....

    Just to say I got the update applied through a non-dealer source. If it is of any use to anyone, I have the files off the update disc mentioned earlier in this thread, and more importantly I have them in decoded .bin format (this might not mean much to you but it will to your tuner!).

    Remap next!

    Is the TPI 2010289/3 update only for A3 3.2s? I have an '04 TT 3.2 DSG which sounds like it could benefit from the new software. My controller number is 022.906.032.DP. Thanks.
