    Hi guys,

    Need urgent help please, bought a A4 1.9 tdi b6 2001 with 146k
    from auction yesterday, as it was really cheap

    everything seemed fine, until today car started 1st time
    left it idling then all of sudden it cut out

    so basically now car will start but cuts out almost immediately/few secs

    no fault codes showing or warning light on dash, cars is standard
    warning lights on dash come on as normal once ignition it on

    all help appreciated

    wouldnt the maf sensor only cause symptoms of hesitation/misfire around certain revs ?

    saying that had a look today & when i unplug maf connector car seems ok no cutting out etc
    when i reconnect it starts to misfire/wont accelerate

    so could that indicate the maf is faulty ?
    also is the maf repairable

    thanks in advance
