    Why would you think the car had no back pressure? Has the exhaust fallen off.. from the back of the turbo?

    What engine is it? What model is it? Ect, ect.

    Is the idle stable, is it losing any fluids, is it only in gear and not in neutral?

    G'day mate,

    Nah it won't be the exhaust. If it was the exhaust it would be rattling like crazy. If you have a mate with a battery charger, charge your battery or buy a charger from Super cheap for like $20.

    The spluttering might be the computer getting confused with the air/fuel ratios etc. IE could be the MAF or ICM.

    If your based in Brisbane I can hook up my VAGCOM and check the codes for ya or ring a mobile mechanic to run some diagnostics.

    Whats the year, model and engine displacement. With the dollar, ECS is the US is cheap with required parts and freight.

    Cheers,
    Luke

    There was a recall on the coil packs as everyone here probably knows but I believe you might be able to scam them for free from Audi. I took my B7 into an Audi dealership last week for transmission issues and they said they would replace the coils free of charge if the car was one of the affected models, lucky for me it turned out not to be one of the affected models.

    You can't scam the coils. The coil pack part #'s are checked and if they are one of the numbers designated for replacement, then it is done. But it is definalty worth calling up to ask about.

    Yes, by scam I mean acquire them free of charge if your car falls into their replacement catagorie not the dodgy type of scam, as in tell them a bunch of lies to try to con them into it.

    90% chance it will be the coils. Everything is most likely in your head. The exhaust "chug", will be from the misfire.
