    After spending close to £2k in a year on repairs, i have yet another problem!
    On idle the revs are all over the place, but the car pulls and is normal over 2000rpm! i had it on vag-com which said its the 2 lambda sensors, spark plugs, all four coil packs and MAF!

    im hoping one fault has triggered all the other faults, if anyone else has experienced similiar problems and can could help, i would be soooooooo grateful.

    its an audi a3 1.8t, x reg

    cheers

    Check for vacuum leaks. At the injectors and the pipes under the inlet manifold.

    Air leak?

    Yes, an air leak on the induction side.

    look at block 001 lambda correction and 032/031 to see... if its adding fuel on idle its trying to compensate for an airleak

    good find.
    common part to fail and go soft/mushy
