    Hi,

    On my 210 S3, I seem to go through a "flat spot" between about 3500 and 4000revs. When accelerating hard, from lowish revs or even from about 3500rpm I notice what seems to be a loss of power between these two points which then gets better again after 4k. Does anyone else notice this and is it just a characteristic of the engine (that maybe a chip would iron out!)?

    Or, could it be the MAF - just guessing as I've heard this can cause loss of power if faulty but don't really know what this does - anyone tell me what this is??!

    Cheers for any advice/experience,

    Pete.

    If it is a regular flat and not intermittent then I would say it is not the MAF.
    It could be a sensor or ecu problem that the audi diagnostic may find.

    failing that have it chipped !! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
