    Stop/ start frequency

    Stop/ start frequency

    How often do you experience your stop/ start activating? On my 40tdi it hardly ever seems to activate, and if it does it’s really random. On some journeys it will, others it won’t.

    Coolant leak

    That’s a bit like saying losing petrol, might be the combustion chamber.

    Audi a3 3.2 v6 quattro 04 plate cutting out !! my garage have changed , cam shaft sensors, MAF sensor, Crank shaft sensor and still happening Help !!!

    I had this issue with mine. Would come to a stop and the car would die. Would then be a pita to start, would have to apply throttle and hold it for it to start, then bang it in gear to get going. Then it would be fine for the next few months. It was intermittent, would just come out on nowhere...
