hi all i have an audi a4 1.9tdi year 2001 and have got a problem with it . a couple of weeks ago when first starting it i would turn it over as normal it would fire up and then cut out so i would turn off and turn back on again and i would have to turn it over for like 2 minutes i thought the battery would go flat it takes that long and then it would sort of splutter and start up (only when i pumped the accelerator) then it would be fine. it seemed like it would only happen if i tried starting it without putting my foot down on the pedal a touch. also now it has started juddering really bad in every gear sort of like kangarooing the slower i go the worse it is and then i can get to 40mph and sort of get it running fine. this seems alot worse in the morning when the car is cold. now i have gone to a local garage and he cant seem to find the problem yet he as plugged in to computer and there is no error codes i cant really afford to pay audi prices so i was hoping somebody may have had this problem with there own or any mechanics may be able to tell us the possible problems so i can pass the info on to the guy at garage. cheers in advance
