Whats up guys.

So today I started my car (2005 A4 1.8 CVT) to go to work. everything was fine, I tried to pass this slow minivan and my car jerked a little and the check engine light came on, it flashes on and off. after that I feel power loss and when I stop and its idleing it feels like that car is shaking, also when I give it gas.

I do the check on the dash and the car says everything is OK.

I read on some other threads what could be the problem, but this just pissed me off. I got the car a month and a half ago. It was 37K miles.

After reading the Owners manual it says that if the light flashes, the catalytic converter could be damaged.

Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!![headbang]

Any help would be great.

You have a defective coil pack. Unfortunately a common problem.

Wao!! you were right, dealer charged me $85 deductible and changed out one coil under CPO warranty.

Thanks man.

Replacement coil packs are only about $30.

Always nice to keep a spare handy. Takes 2 minutes to swap them.
