Question about 2005 Audi A3
My 2000 1.6 A3 was stalling all the time when it was cold, It then started over-revving (like in the olden days when you left the choke out too long) and would then stall and not re-start for 10 mins or so. I had some sort of air pipe replaced on the advice of the aa man, it now doesn't stall all the time when cold however it still does the over-revving/stalling thing at least once or twice a day - no fun doing 60 on the dual carriage way. No fault codes show when plugged in to computer.
Check your idle air control motor or the throttle position sensor.
Alot of the new cars have a electronic motor that controls the butterfly valve in the throttle body, that could also be faulty and would require you to get a new throttle body, not cheap, but not outrageous in price most of the time.
If still not sure it would be best to take it to the dealer, they have specialized scanners and other tools that most regular shops do not have.
