intermittent problem with engine computer kept it from accelerating. it would suddenly only idle out from a stop. if you were to pull into traffic you could not accelerate and would be hit or cause someone else to swerve to avoid you. it took the dealer 7 months to find the problem and replace the ecu. it became obvious after replacement that it had been bad since day one and gradually got worse since all acceleration hesitation went away. this unit quickly failed and had to be replaced also.

my 2002 audi a4 1.8t had a coil pack failure on 12/18/02. the failure caused the car to sputter lose speed and become unpredictable. it occured at a speed of 30 mph forcing me to take evasive driving action. upon further research, i found out that this failure is occuring on a very large scale with dozens and dozens of 1.8t engines (both vw and audi) having this problem. vw/audi has not issued a recall for these parts and is only replacing the failed part. there are coil packs in each 1.8t. vw/audi is not acting on this problem leaving thousands of 1.8t owners with defective parts in their cars. when a coil pack fails it is a very dangerous situation.

audi a4 ignition coil problem. 2 have gone - now i have to wait for the other 2 to go in order to again own a dependable car. this is most inconvenient during a cold winter! i am paying my lease, and am not able to drive the car further than a few miles. i live in a remote area of maine, where the temperature is well below zero much of the time. i could freeze to death waiting for a tow truck!! why is there not a recall. why can't the company put a hold on completing new cars and therefore install 4 coils at a time instead of one as they go?? why should i continue to pay for this car unless it is fixed?

Location:
Brentwood, MO

in 1/04, during normal driving conditions one evening, my '03 1.8t a4 began shaking violently as i began accelerated from a stop sign. the check engine light came on and i lost a significant amount of power and couldn't accelerate well. the dealer stated that i blew an ignition coil. not 2 months later, in early 3/04, the same exact situation occured and i had to have another ignition coil replaced. i have learned that the mfr had a product recall for this exact problem, however my vehicle's components are not covered by those under recall. i was told i have the "newer" versions of the igition coils already in my car. while they might be newer, they sure haven't solved the underlying problem! two blown igition coils in less than 2 months and i can't get the mfr to replace the other 2 coils that i'm certain will go out at some point soon too.
