The issue affects acceleration, not always. Most of the time car accelerates great and allows engine to go to higher rpms -5-6k no problem. Sometimes when it starts it would only go to 3 k and start losing power there .
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Could you provide potential diagnosis of this issue based on description, codes and your experience, as well in your opinion how many labor hours to fix it.

Sorry , don’t have that info - it was my friends , part time mechanic, and he is not responding now. Is it crucial information ?
Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 8 months ago

yes because the sheets per code # does not jive correctly with the factory information!!

Vag Com is the scan tool of choice for this !! Need to see running values to get a better idea of what is exactly going on!!
