Question about 2010 Audi A4

1 Answer

I have 16,000Km A$ sedan 2.0T with manual 6 speed transmission. When I moderately accelerate I feel hesitations from the engine between 2,500 and 3,000 RPM, It is more apparent on the 1st and 2nd gear, when driving in cities. It felles like the turbo has some hard time to itself ON, giving several hesitations before it finally runs smooth again. The dealer is talking about tourbo lag but I 'm sure it is more than that. I use to have a 2003 Passat 1.8T for years and never felt such hesitation. Any hints ? Thanks !

If you are sure that there isn't the normal lag then the turbo doesn't spin up fast enough. The only thing you can do on a car that is still in the warranty period like yours is to replace the oil with a much better, synthetic one.
For everything else go to the dealer and INSIST to have the car fully tested on the dynamometer bench.

Sounds like a malfunctioning egr system. Too much egr gasses at once will lean out the air fuel mixture and cause hesitation in an engine. Just my 2 cents.

what you can do is ask a couple people to drive your car to see if they feel the same thing you do. if they do then you need to take it back to the dealer to check it again, make sure you obtain some thing in writing for all your visit.

How do i reprogram the computer on my 2002 xl7


Try this relearn procedure hopefully it will help

Vehicles equipped with engine or transmission computers may require a relearn procedure after the vehicle battery is disconnected. Many vehicle computers memorize and store vehicle operation patterns for optimum driveability and performance. When the vehicle battery is disconnected, this memory is lost. The computer will use default data until new data from each key start is stored. As the computer memorizes vehicle operation for each new key start, driveability is restored. Vehicle computers may memorize vehicles operation patterns for 40 or more key starts. Customers often complain of driveability problems during the relearn stage because the vehicle acts differently then before being serviced. Depending on the type of vehicle and how it is equipped, the following complaints (driveability problems) may exist:

Harsh Or Poor Shift Quality
Rough Or Unstable Idle
Hesitation Or Stumble
Rich Or Lean Running
Poor Fuel Mileage

These symptoms and complaints should disappear after a number of drive cycles have been memorized. To reduce the possibility of complaints, after any service which requires battery power to be disconnected, vehicle should be road tested.

Vehicle Preparation

Ensure all components are connected. Ensure transmission fluid level is correct. Warm engine to normal operating temperature. If vehicle has been repaired, perform KOEO and Continuous Memory Code Self-Test and ensure fault codes are not present.

Computer Relearn Procedures

Idle Relearn Procedure

Place automatic transmission in Park or manual transmission in Neutral position. Ensure the emergency brake has been set and all accessories are turned off. Start engine and bring to normal operating temperature. Allow manual transmission vehicle to idle in Neutral for one minute. Allow automatic transmission to idle in Neutral for one minute and then to idle in Drive for one minute. Once initial relearn is complete, process will be completed during normal driving. Always complete the procedure before returning the vehicle to the customer.

Drive Cycle Test (AOD-E, AXOD & AXOD-E TRANSAXLES)

With transmission gear selector in Overdrive, moderately accelerate vehicle to 50 MPH for a minimum of 15 seconds. Transmission should be in 4th gear. While holding speed steady, lightly apply and release brake for about 5 seconds. Stop and park vehicle for a minimum of 20 seconds with transmission gear selector in Drive. Repeat procedure 5 times. Always complete the procedure before returning the vehicle to the customer.

Drive Cycle Test (E4OD)

With transmission gear selector in Drive, press Overdrive Cancel Switch (LED should light). Moderately accelerate vehicle to 40 MPH for a minimum of 15 seconds (30 seconds above 4000-ft. elevation) Transmission should be in 3rd gear. While holding speed steady, press Overdrive Cancel Switch (LED should go off) and accelerate from 40 MPH to 50 MPH. Transmission should shift from 3rd gear to 4th gear. Hold speed steady for 15 seconds. While holding speed steady, lightly apply and release brakes enough to turn brake lights on. Maintain 50 MPH for about 5 seconds. Stop vehicle for a minimum of 20 seconds with transmission gear selector in Drive. Repeat procedure 5 times. Always complete the procedure before returning the vehicle to the customer.

you can go through the ecm and reconfigure the trans control module,however there could be an underlying reason for you high shift points. it could be that you have a faulty engine speed sensor which sends the signal to the ecm to operate your transmission. my advice would be to check for any loose connections first. also your shift points are set to the power curve of your engine so if your having to throttle it to a higher degree it could be that the performance of your engine is not what it should be. if you can give me some more background on your vehicle i can evalueate it further
