A4 Sputtering/skipping when accelerating from stop

My 2004 A4 1.8 turbo (95k miles) just started sputtering/skipping during low acceleration. If i mash the accelerator it doesn't happen, nor do i have any issues at other speeds. Ideas?

    try cleaning the throttle body/butterfly. then move onto vacuum pipes leaking & coil packs or even air mass meters, dont forget to check the coolant temp sender. but you will need a good diagnostic machine to record the live data, but very common on audi/vw

The flashing light means the problem is serious enough to cause damage to the catalytic converter. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed. And get the plugs replaced.

Have it checked with a computer diagnostics. It sounds like it could be a bad sensor, quite possibly your oxygen sensor. A bad sensor could cause the computer to think your engine needs more fuel.

From a stop, when you start to accelerate, the car skip like the transmission is out of sync. Once it starts going it shifts fine. This only happens after the car has warmed up (5-6miles of driving).

General rules of thumb: Low speed engine on acceleration with smoke in the exhaust plume = worn piston rings High speed engine accelerating (spooled up turbo) with smoke = oil form turbo bearing and/or piston rings Engine on over run (coasting down, foot off the gas) with smoke = oil from valve guides. VW/Audi make good engines with tight tolerances so none of the above should apply at 62K miles; just make sure that the oil (the right oil) and oil filter are changed regularly.

ENGINE SPUTTER AND DIES ON ACCELERATION


check your fuel filter, take an air compressor and blow air through the "in" end if no or little air is coming through then just replace the filter, if fuel filter is ok then try a fuel additive to clean your injectors which are a very common problem when the engine gets gunky build up on them
