Catch me riding s00ty!

recently everytime i start the car in the morning, it doesnt idle that good. and my boost gauge is dancing around 0 psi. and sometime the engine will stall and died . but after i start the car again for the 2nd time, no problem at all.
Don't quote me on this, but i think this could be an early sign of you needing your CoilPacks replaced. YOu have a 1.8T too, so vw should do them for free. Call and ask your local dealership if they need you to have the letter for them to do it free.

I'm having the same issue too, but it got WORSE as time progresses. I now need UP TO 5 starts for the car to run fine. Otherwise, the car clunks around 500rpm to 800rpm and stepping on the gas does absolutely nothing.

I hope this helps you out somewhat.... :eek:
