    Kicking, cutting out, jerking.

    Hi all.

    My a3 2lt started "kicking" so to say only when cold.

    So as you would load it just a bit say going up a small hill just out side of my driveway she will cut out for a split second feels like coils but as its only under load and intermediate very hard to test while sitting still. It's perfect when she has warmed up and I never rev past 2500 when still cold I treat it like an old lady.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Sounds like coils to me.

    Any CELs or codes?

    No nothing doesn't throw codes or any thing scanned it yesterday.

    Was looking at coil packs (non original) they seem good quality and not expensive might might change them.

    Does any one get a hiss through the pipes (not turbo whistle) when under load not really stressed as I think it's just the mass air flow through the intake.

    What have you done to your a3 tylaughter if you have one?

    Sounds like a fueling issue, low RPM’s moderate load uphill. Try and log fuel pressure to see if there is a drop with your experiencing the cutout

    Thanks eyrah I'll give it a go got new coils as well so probably due for a few bits and pieces. I'll take to dyno and see if they can give it a few runs and see what happens.
