My 2003 fwd auto roadster has had a wierd problem since new. When going slow and suddenly having to step down on it, as in pulling into traffic off a driveway, the car feels like it stalls. I have to let up with traffic closing in to get it going, very hairy! I've read that this condition has shown up in many 1.8T's in audi and volkswagen. My onboard shows no record even though the dealer says I describe the problem perfectly. They won't fix it without the readout. Hundreds of maf's have been replaced but they claim there is no recall or service bulletin. Anyone have any info or has gotten audi to fix this on warranty?

I have an 2002 audi tt. I am having problems with the top engage light. The top is latched and the light stays on. How did you fix yours? red13

I had the same problem with the top engaged light staying on and the solution was to replace the instrument cluster. This was done by the dealership under warranty. The new cluster also repaired s few other problems ie: DIC LCD's were being cut in half, doors would lock eratically and gas door would not always open, had to do it from inside the trunk on a couple of occasions. Also, the driver's side window would not drop when the door was opened....passenger side worked fine. Hope this helps, the cluster was the culprit.
#144 of 145 2000 TT engine pops, loss of power
Sep 21, 2006 (8:50 am)
I have a 2000 TT 1.8. As with many people posting, I have a series of problems with the car.
Currently (last 3 months) the engine runs rough and has power loss problems. 2 issues:
1. When I start the car in the morning it runs rough, makes popping noises and I can not just drive off, it will only go about 5 miles per hr and if I try to accelerate it starts hopping and jolting violently - again with little power.
2. After it warms up in the driveway, I can go faster, but still have power problems and it runs rough - all day.
When I go to accelerate, if I push slowly on the peddle, the car will jolt and bounce roughly..also exhibiting power loss problems. SO, to be able to merge with traffic, I have to floor it and then it hesitates for a second or two and then (it seems) the gas flows properly - because the engine lets the car accelerate smoothly - but fast. I have to floor it through all the gears until I get to cruising speed.
When running a consistent speed, it will also sometimes jump a little. Seems like the fuel flow is not consistent and I thought it might be a fuel filter, but then figured, if it was clogged, it would be clogged when I floor it too - right?
I have the typical electrical instrument problems as well, but have had them for 2 yrs and live with it. So they are not part of this issue.
the Engine light came on about 3 weeks before this problem started.
Anyone have any ideas
