    Hi ppl got a new problem can anyone give some advice pls!!! My cars acting strange will be fine most of the time but if i put my foot down a little hard the car will go into limp mode. I'd have to pull over and restart engine and then it'll be fine. the problem happens randomly some times at 30mph sometimes 70mph.

    checked it on the vag com it can up with a pressure error some thing to do with pressure build up im not sure my mate did it for me as he dont trust a girl with his toys!!!!:jester:

    got told i need a new actuator but i cant get hold of one and would that even be the problem fix?????

    ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREAT

    its a 2000 a3 tdi (AGR)
