    A3 1.8t agu coolant problem

    I suggest you replace your Y pipe and see if the coolant stops boiling. Since it's hard to fetch an original one I suggest you get a kit that replaces most plastic junctions with aluminum ones.

    S3 stalling problems

    Check that all your vacuum hoses are wired correctly, make sure your n75 and DV aren't backwards. Also check for fault codes if you can. After removing the TB you need to align it, like that.

    Haldex questions
