    Hi guys, my car hates me.:ermm:
    On my way home earlier tonight, it started shuddering really badly, particularly at lower revs and when accelerating. The engine management light came on as well and the car had a loss of power. I pulled over, but didn't really know what to look for so I nursed it home. (It's an AUM 2000 A3 1.8T by the way.)

    I'm not really sure what to look for, but I was thinking along the lines of fuel filter or something. Unfortunately I don't have vagcom, so I can't scan it.

    Does anyone have any ideas so I know what to look for tomorrow?

    Thanks for any help..

    It will be the coil packs. With the engine running pull one out at time to see if it makes a difference. If it doesn't that the one that's burnt out.

    Yeah, having had a proper look today one of my coil packs is down, thanks for the replies. I'll try and get to Euro Car Parts tomorrow and pick up a new one (or 4). Something like this should be fine, right? BERU Audi - Euro Car Parts UK

    Cheers.

    Mate, dont go for the Euro ones, get the genuine ones from Audi, they are alot more reliable and probably cost the same as well
