hi there to everyone
new to the site and new to audi
I have bought a 2002 a3 1.8t Quattro cracking car love it to pieces great condition
BUUTTT when I have the car parked up the car is perfect revs nicely and sounds spot on
but as soon as you go to drive it it sounds as though the engine is blowing badly
puzzled as I have had the car up on ramps and cant feel and gas release???
also what ever the issue is would it also cause loss of boost, when up on the ramp I had a good look and niticed a pipe which leads down on the drivers side to the intercooler looks like it had an oily residue on it??
help and ides please
