  5. Rough Acceleration At High Revs

    Na I take it to honeycombs, their audi service centre (where I bought the car). I am taking it to a mates on sat, hes got a sniffer for afr readings so I can check my fuel pump, gonna change fuel filter aswell. Give the cat a kick to see if it rattles lol
  6. Rough Acceleration At High Revs

    driving it home tonight, temp was cooler then normal. car went like nothing was wrong at all, apart from the loud turbo spooling (which I think is do do with the piping, will look at it on weekend). No power loss watsoever. So wat could make the car lose power on hot days, but wen cool not affect it at all. Could this be coil packs?
  7. Rough Acceleration At High Revs

    yea I have already done that to the solenoid. Having a really good look at it this weekend. will pull off every pipe and inspect, and also have a good look at plugs and coils.

    yep no mods watsoever, apart from k&n panel filter

    Did your car make the loud spool sound of the turbo? like pretty loud lol
  10. Rough Acceleration At High Revs

    Took car to mechanics today. They hooked it up to diagnostic tool, no fault codes. They took it for test drive and it wouldnt play up. I stopped in the afternoon and went for drive with them. Couldnt get it to do it - Whilst driving home I gave it a stab and there it was. It feels even worse now, losing a lot of power, and also you can hear the turbo spooling loud as, normally very quiet. Ive checked all intake pipes and vacumn hoses and everything I can think of for boost leaks and nothing. So now im stumped. Dunno wat to do. is there a way to test coil packs other then try them on a different car? Im thinking its either them or a spark plug, but apparently no miss was showing on the computer they connected :S

    had a look for boost leaks. there was a hose disconnected near the "blow off valve". I placed it back on and drove it. seemed fine. drove it the next day and problems again. dunno if I just got lucky or wat. seems to be no other boost leaks. there was a small bit of oil in the turbo. only a small amount and a little bit on the intake side. is this normal? thanks turbo I am trying to get the car in this week so they can have a look at the coil packs and plugs

    na its not spluttering, revving up its fine til about 3000rpm then the power disappears, then it will stay without power all the way to 6grand whilst making intermitent ffffut fffffut sounds out of the exhaust

    Well since ive had the car, just over a year, I have never replaced them so I presume they have never been changed. im trying to put the car in this week to see if it can get fixed. Thanks
  14. Rough Acceleration At High Revs

    I have a 2004 BA mk2 xr6t and today it started playing up. I have just been on a long trip from townsville to sydney and back (over a few days) and on the way back about 400km from home the car started feeling a bit sluggish. Whilst going to overtake a car I planted the right foot down, car started coming up to speed then all of a sudden the power just disappeared. it was like I was driving a n/a. Felt like no boost getting through at all. I could hear the turbo spooling just fine, just wasnt creating power. I slowed right down then speed up slowy keeping it under 3grand. Nothing happened all seemed fine. as soon as I started putting the foot right down to higher revs it did it again. I have put spitfire through it but it doesnt seem to be a fuel issue as there is no rough idle now rough acceleration when revs are down low. Im not sure here but could this be a problem with the waste gate actuator not functioning correctly? Car is completely stock and only had it serviced about 3000kms ago. If u need any more info let me know Thanks edit: also forgot to mention wen accelerating at the high revs I can hear like a fffffut ffffut sound from the exhaust
  15. Remote Central Locking Not Working?

    I doubt very much that it would be the door actuator. As he said it locks when you use the key. A faulty door actuator wouldnt "lock" with key or without. Id check your connections first.
