1...replace Lambda probe

2...change air con fans

3...replace coil packs

I had a Y plate 4Mo, with very similar problems - albeit under warranty.

Things they replaced:

Coil Packs

Lambda Probes (twice)

MAF sensor unit (3 times)

Still got the emissions/ECU warning light so they replaced the highly technical item of ....... an HT Lead.

So you could try either replacing MAF or HT Leads - try the leads first as I believe the MAF unit was around 180 quid.

Good luck - hope you get things sorted.

Hello Langers

How did you get on with the problems of misfire/hesitation in the R32?

*Spark plugs could have worked themselves loose if not tightened correctly

*Coolant temp sensor should be changed for the improved green one

*Have you looked at the knock sensor?

The most significant improvement I can think of is a software opgrade if your hesitation does not show up on VAG-COM.

For the manual R32 in Europe we have version 6463, where my MkIV DSG is on version 7831. It has recently been updated from 7000 and totally eliminated a very rare hesitation(800-4000rpm) that you seem to have.

Good luck 169144-ok.gif
