    oh no, car has started to rumble when accelerating?!?! what can it be?

    whilst i wait for the coil pack i bought some spark plugs and have only managed to fit 2 before i snapped the plug removed (cheap halfords thing). Cars still crap with 2 new plugs anyway.

    oh no, car has started to rumble when accelerating?!?! what can it be?

    Just went to tatton park, fine. Had a walk then back to the car and started up. The idle was really lumpy though, and when i pulled off it just hesitated really bad, rumbling and engine light flashed for a while then went off.

    Should this pipe be hot?

    It comes off the breather then goes back into the turbo intake (i think). Problem is, its gets really hot, you cant touch it once the engines up at temp. Surely the turbo is sucking in red hot gasses??

    Well phoned a VW/Audi specialist near me and they quoted a days work (£350 labour) to change the torque converter, but they said to bring it in for diagnostic first to make sure.

    Problems opening boot

    I found that if you lock the boot with the key you may have problems. There is a small microswitch on the barrel of the boot key lock and if its not turned back to its normal position then it wont make the switch and allow power to the solenoid.

    just phoned the previous owner (40's) and he knew nothing of an engine swap. In the service book there is a delivery inspection stamp around the time of importation from crewe audi, so i will give them a try.
