    Engin e dies

    Thanks for reply but wouldn't a throttle valve fault show a code or mot if it is just teeth missed
  3. Q7 had thus on going problem 18mnths engine starts no problem ,on acceleration engine dies goes into limp,no lights come on and no codes come up ,all back to normal after restarting ,it has been on diagnostics so many times it might aswell have o e permanently attached,it's had new turbo,new battery,new alternator, crank shift sensor ,egr valve ,fuel filter,air filter,it can happen at any time it won't clear by on and off throttle, or by changing gear in manual, it want go up or down in the gears ,it has had a starting issue which has now been put down to faulty ignition barrel which is due to be changed ,could this cause acceleration problems ? Any ideas

    Gear change

    Replaced brake switch yesterday ,when I drove car it would not change up to 5th and 6th it seem to rev higher before changing as well,if I use manual it will go into higher gears ,on the switch there is a mauve part that moves what does it do and what position should it be in when it is in the bracket
  5. I changed my brake switch yesterday and today the car won't change up to 5th and 6th and is holding into the other gears longer before changing if I use manual change it seems to be ok ,also what is the mauve coloured part of the brake switch that moves meant to do
