Default Hesitating During Acceleration

It looks like I can't avoid taking the TT to the shop. First I noticed I'm losing boost (3 psi) and now I am getting a hiccup/hesitation while accelerating. I was noticing a little hesitation at the top of the2nd gear. Now it is worst but at the top end of the 3rd gear. Anyone have a similiar problem with accelerating? What were your solutions?

I'm starting to get paranoid after seeing pictures of timing belts missing teeth. I'm at 44500 miles and getting to the point where I want to order a timing belt kit. Can this problem be associated with something like that?

I will be trying out my third shop in 4 months - http://uspmotorsports.com/index.php. HopefullyI can find one that isn't just trying to sell me. I would like to see someone get excited about working on my car. Someone that knows the intricacies of this model and has vison of how to make it perform.

Sounds likes a bad MAF and/or failing coilpacks. Would also check your sparkplugs for fowling and proper gap.

I dont know if you have read that link i posted in your other thread or not buti would start there and get a new o-ring of the turbo outlet pipe. If it still happens it might be a died n75 (yes they have been known to die). IF you know another 1.8t'er in the area ask to borrow theirs and see it if cures the problem. Both simple things to try. Also check your vaccum hoses and for boost leaks.

I just wanted to make it clear once again that a shop telling you to get the waterpump done at the same time as the timing belt is not"just tryingto sell you" unneeded parts.I remember youcomplaining before about them telling youshould pay to have it done as well.I would honestly be wary of a shop that did not tell me to do the waterpump at the same time, especially with the plastic impellars that they come stock with.

Well Don R works with some amazing people and im sure he could take a Big port out to that. Bob Q probably did it in like his stage whatever head.

So this problem has now turned into the car stalling. I can be driving and the car will loses power. Two lights come on in the tach area. One says EPC and the other I believe is the traction control. The car revs but doesn't accelerate. If I turn the car off and back on I can drive again. I'm taking it to the shop today so I will get there opinion.

Hi all

I have just done a headgasket/manifold gasket job on my audi 80 1992 (158 thousand miles)carb version(which supprised me as i thought it was injection)

right i did the nasty job because she was leaking from cylinders 2-3 but with very little sign of mayo and running fine bar alittle underpower'`d with a strange airplane noise as you throttle up and drive which differs in tone as you drive under differant throttle positions(sounds like fairly normal engine noise(used to have a volvo 480 that made this noise but that was deffo the normal noise)hopefully

before the gaskets i had no throttle hesitation at all but since its been done i can drive along and it will feel like someone holding onto the backend then letting go ??this happens through all drivng speed ranges(from pulling away to normal 50-60mph driving conditions)

i remember seeing a breather hose with an inch slit in it but this doesnt look new and it didnt cause any probs before so can it really cause this kind of power loss as it idles at 900/1000 rpms fine(more checks today)

when i was cleaning the carb (while running)it had a moment where it picked up in rpms like it just got rid of a block and it sounded like it should normally run that well!!

o2 sensor is new

air filter is dirty but not eccessive(would this have that bigger effect??

i have only had this car a week and i brought it knowing it needed the head done(well i asked if it had mayo and he said no(it did)plus he said 114 thou but states on clock 158 thou(wasn't too bother'd as the paint is in very good con!!!!

its a 2l manual

he basically ran it without caring and it needs a total overhaul really but this new prob wasn't here before

gonna do plugs as one bridge looked closer than the others(three bridge per spark plug?)
fuel filter
air(with maybe cone but depends if i rid this issue first)
coil

ive done headgaskets before and if the gasket didnt seat it would be evident as most ive had have gone through the coolant bottle(turn over and pressure sends water up and out type of thing)
water getting into the wrong area

this car turns fine and idles fine and after the work it just fired straight upunlike a volvo i have once(340)which had to be dragged up the road to start)

could even the coolant thermostat do this,? as i think its a dud and is stuck open or alittle,the car runs at 60deg or 70 but most times its lower.(since job its 50-60-70 degress)before it either didnt register at all or got around 50 degrees and back down??

il keep you posted when i can afford to replace bits etc and which one cures it,but any ideas welcome

cheers all

any ideas anyone?please

I like USP however Chris doesn't give anything away. He has to pay for all that overhead, and his new toys.
