I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY AUDI S2 AVANT. FOR MORE THAN A YEAR I HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH INCONSISTENCY AND JERCKING IN TH EWAY IT RUNS, LACK OF POWER IN THE HIGHER REVS AND THE CAR DIES OFTEN WHEN I STOP.
IT HAS BEEN IN AND OUT OF THE MECHANICS SHOP 6 TIMES AND I HAVE LOST FAITH IN HIM. IN SOUTH AFRICA THERE ARE FEW PEOPLE WHO WILL WORK ON THE CAR SO I HAVE A PROBLEM.
I NEED ANY ADVICE ON WHAT TO DO TO SOLVE THIS PROBLOM OR ON WHAT THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE.

Hi Carl and welcome to Audi Sport.net

What age of S2 do you have as they have 2 types 3B and ABY engine one has a distributor and the other coil packs

what has the garage done already to the car so we can take that out of the equation

Power problem usually come from :
Boost leak from intercooler hoses to and from the turbo
Faulty dump valve
WGFV=waste gate freaqency valve faulty
Coil packs failing under load
POS=power out put stage which controls the coil packs as in timing
Fuel pressure /when was the last time you replaced the fuel filter


With the car cutting out on you i take it that when it is hot?....would be looking for a vacuum pipe leak somewhere and check all hose attached to the inlet manifold are tight

loads of info on S2's are here www.S2forum.com and for stats/resource http://www.s2central.net/ run by guy Paul Nugent very good with S2s

Cheers
