i have just yesterday bought a 98 model a3 1.8t. i got it for an absolute bargain and it needs work. driving it about it seems to be lacking alot of power, but u can feel the turbo trying to kick in. its almost as if its being starved of oxygen. when i pull of in 1st it pulls but not like it should (have been in a friends) 2nds the same but 3rds alot worse. also when i pull up after driving it, its smells a little but i cant work out of what? iv searched through this forum and found that it may be something to do with a 'maff' sensor??? iv disconnected it and its not much better. any suggestions are greatly appreciated thanks oh and does anyone no of any vag-com places around colchester?
