So I have a 2011 A5 Quattro with the 2.0 T and a 6speed manual transmission. A couple weeks ago I started my car and before I could get my seatbelt on it died, I started it back up only for it to die again. From there the car refused to start, after looking some I realized I wasn’t getting fuel to the high pressure pump, replaced the lift pump and filter in the tank. Seemed to work except for a misfire and code for the fuel pressure sensor being faulty. Decide to replace injectors along with the sensor. Car seemed to be fine until yesterday, again I started my car and it died, only this time I had to go away from the car for a bit, I come back and try to start it again after priming the fuel pump a couple times and it starts and runs. As I pull off it bucks like it lost power but then kept going fine. Today it died while I was driving, I get picked up to go to class and come back and the car starts again, bucks as I pull away a couple times but ultimately got me home. I decided to try testing different things to see if I can purposely make the car stall. In neutral I rev slightly to around 1100 rpm and then the car sputters and dies, for about an hour I could get the car to start by priming the pump but it wouldn’t stay running. I decided to let it set and cool down then I go back out a few hours later, prime the pump and it starts and runs. I would take it to the dealership for diagnostics but they won’t be able to get me in for 2 weeks. Need some suggestions to get my daily back on the road.

Man you MUST replace yer face pic with a pic of yer car please otherwise no help from me!!!! Listen these cars are well complex. VERY well build and therefore heavy but build to last, I had my old A5 from 100k to 200k kms and really loved the experience. I suggest that you do NOT start replacing parts cos you risk throwing dosh into the river, better find an INDEPENDENT VAG specialist and have her hooked up to their software (usually VCDS, by Ross Tech). Then when you have a read out you have start, go from there. FORGET please the official stealer network.
