Question about 2006 Audi A4

1 Answer

A4, 3.0 with CVT

No throttle response after coming to a stop, shut engine off - restart - still will not go. Sometimes will be O.K. after sitting for few minutes. Took to dealer, 3 - 4 times, they can't find problem, computer on board does not show hiccup. After leaving at dealer for 1 week while service tech drove it home (200 miles later) regional service advisor says "tighten the grounding cables". But after getting stuck with same problem at a intersection while it was raining, traded the car away. 
Tried to tell Audi, it is a safety hazard and a accident waiting to happen, no response from Audi /dealer -

When you say "no throttle response," do you mean that the engine reacted to the throttle but the car wouldn't move?  If so, this is a fairly common issue with CVT cars....CVT is not quite ready for the road yet.

Throttle position sensor problems


reduced engine power has to do with the electronic throttle control or drive by wire . All electronic wires under the dash on the gas pedal , electric motor on the throttle body . DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the computer . Take it to the dealer .

Stalls sometimes when stopped at lights engine misses at stop


Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Had the same problem with mine. Check and clean your throttle body, as well as all hoses leading from you air filter all the way to the engine. Took a bottle of carb cleaner, a rag, and some q-tips.

Engine stalls while sitting at traffic light. Seems to happen after engine wms up


To correct this problem I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

TRY THIS BEFORE U SPEND ANYMORE MONEY N PARTS.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

99 hyundai accent starts sometimes. not battery


ok when the check engine light comes on that usually indicates a engine malfunction...what you can do is go to your local autozone and they can do an OBDII test for free..my bet says it is the cam or crank sensor.. DO NOT SHUT THE CAR OFF AT AUTOZONE..LOL
