Customer Question

My sons 2008 TT. He is on a long road trip from Texas and when he is accelerating at low speeds under 30 mph it hesitates and he feels (doesnt hear it) a thumping or sputtering.
JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?
Customer: He said its not a noise he feels it. It started about 5 hours ago after driving 12 hours. He just got his oil filter changed , oil change, two new tires and balance before he left texas yesterday. Was running good when he left. Drove 12 hours straight when it started and its getting worse
JA: What is the model of your '08 Audi?
Customer: TT
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Tried nothing. He is still driving it, he is almost at his destination
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of

Hi, I'm Chad ,Welcome To JustAnswer, I'm reviewing your question and I will be be posting a replay ASAP

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 12 months ago.

most likely a weak ignition coil , as long the check engine light is not flashing while driving he can keep driving it and run a diagnostic scan when he reaches his destination and retrieve the fault codes .

if check engine light is flashing, then problem need addressed asap before more damage will occur internally in engine

Please let me know if you need anything else on it

Hope I was helpful to you
