    Hi,
    Today whilst driving to work I lost a lot of power and my car sounded and felt awful!
    Eml was goin crazy!!its an audi a3 1.8t aum. Iv got a basic code reader and it logged;
    1668416688
    17704
    16687.
    from what I can gather the engine is misfiring? Is it safe to drive the car?carnt get it to a garage till next week :(
