Hi All,

I need help please, my A4 B5 2,8 has been running sweet with only 73k for a 98 model, but a few months ago after a run on the motorway I parked her up no problem, the next day trying to start her was an epic and when she did go the engine was spluttering and could not hold a decent idle speed. I also noticed the accelerator had a delay when pressed.

At the time I did not have my Vagcom tool, and reading the forums and similar experiences i thought I would look into a few possibilities, so I changed the starter relay, fuel filter and the fuel pump. when I did the diagnostic it showed and intermittent fault on the MAP, so I changed this.

After this she will start on the first attempt and then run smoothish, but as soon as she is switched off then she does not want to know.

I have considered whether it could be the temp sensor as that has been mentioned about causing starting issues.

I did another diagnostic and now it is giving me different readings as below, it is racking my brain now and I cannot drive her as I know she may not start when stopped.

Help as I miss driving her.

This sounds like a classic temp sensor issue, but this:


17967 - Throttle Body (J338)
P1559 - 35-10 - Fault in basic settings - Intermittent

Sounds like it just needs a throttle body adaptation - which I believe only takes a minute or two with vag-com and costs nothing. Start with that and if there's no change get a new coolant temp sensor?
