    1. the car feels like there's a governor holding down the revs. the engine came on the following day.  i'm taking it into the dealer for service.  i have 57K miles.  no other problems with the car, other than a replace ac compressor under warranty.

    A4 2006 2.0L Turbo - This happens when I accelerate from a complete stop. I step on the gas and there is a delay before the vehicle moves. It seems to happen worse in hot weather. I was told this is the dreaded "turbo lag" but I have my doubts. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Car gets really shaky, then the gas pedal stops working, then the car dies after a few minutes. i cleaned the throttle body before this happened changed the oil and added some injection cleaner to my tank.

Have the fuel pressure checked- this would determine if your fuel pump is working properly. Its really easy if you have a gauge. you might be able to rent one at a part store. or it could need a new fuel filter
