  3. Engine Stutter During Starting

    I might consider getting rid of it. Does it improve running or is there really not a lot of difference
  4. Engine Stutter During Starting

    I've seen on a few websites that the SAI pumps are replaced with a resistor, would you be able to tell me why they are getting rid of the pump.
  5. Engine Stutter During Starting

    its a AUM engine code. did you just replace the head gasket and it was fine from there?
  6. Engine Stutter During Starting

    Ok I'll get it tested. There isn't any oil loss or anything so it is an odd one
  7. Hi I was just looking if anyone could give me advice on the 1.8T engine When starting the engine cold, an high frequency stutter occurs, and it almost sounds like the car isn't firing on all cylinders. The stutter stops with a little acceleration of the engine however returns on idle for about 1 minute. When the engine is warm the stutter doesn't return and the car runs well when driving. I've replaced the coils about 2 years ago, and I gave the car a full service not that long ago. Wondering if anyone has any ideas? Cheers

  9. Mk5 gti dump valve?

    Can anyone tell me if there is a kit that allows you to swap the standard recirculating valve for a dump valve or something similar to the hybrid valves you get with a 1.8 turbo in the mr4 or a3's Cheers

  15. Need Advice

    Ive had my audi a3 8l for 4 years now, I just recently had it re sprayed in a house of kolor candy burgundy red it looks amazing however I'm building up the car myself and taking my time so I can replace pretty much everything on it I want the car to be brand new once its back on the road I drove the car out the garage today and have put in 10 liters of petrol in her the car started no probelm with a jump start as the batery is dead. the car has had a few engine moddifications such as a remap and a straight cat back exhaust with a forge recirculation valve and little bits and bobs the car does pop and bang I thought this was due to the catback exhaust. when i went to drive the car into the garage the car wanted to then the light with the exclimation mark in the middle (!) flashed 3 times, and then it cut out. I'm wondering if anyone knows what the problem could be its not got a lot of miles on the car nearly 70 000 on the clock. any advice is welcomed
