Audi TT acceleration

Asked by Todwiser May 11, 2018 at 12:45 PM about the 2005 Audi TT 3.2 quattro Roadster AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought an 05 TT 3.2 ltr automatic a
couple of months go from an Audi dealer in
SoCal. It has 25k miles and one owner. The
car sat a lot and I had to replace 3 dried
out engine mounts right away. The problem
I’m having now feelis like a delay when I’m
initially accelerating from a stop. The
engine revs and a split second later the
transmission engages and the car bolts
forward. It also does it in reverse. To
preventing it from bolting I have to
accelerate very slowly until I feel the
transmission engage and then I can
increase the acceleration. I’ve also noticed
that when i put the car in park and take my
foot off brake the car will roll more than
seems normal until the transmission
abruptly stops the roll. My mechanic
checked the transmission fluid and told me
that this particular transmission uses a
thicker fluid that takes longer to warm up. I
assume that’s correct and I notice it more
when I first drive the car in the morning.
However it doesn’t go away once the car is
warmed up. I don’t know how the car was
serviced during it's 13 year:/25k mile life so
I don’t know if any damage was done. I
appreciate any advice you can offer.

Throttle adaptation procedure for a C6: 1. Stick key in ignition and turn to the "ON" position. 2. Step on throttle all the way down and hold for 5 seconds. 3. Turn key all the way off while still holding throttle down. 4. Release throttle 2 seconds after turning key to "OFF". 5. You might be able to hear the reset taking place. You're good to go after a minute.

Try this the 5 seconds might be 30 seconds depending on your car. But the reason the car does this is cause it has a self learning system. so if the last guy drove like your grandmother slow as hell that car will have remembered that and adapted to work that way. The steps above will clear the learning system and alow your car to go back to the way it was at stock. it might not be a pad idea to look at the throttle body as well and see how dirty it is. My 2013 used to suck oil threw the turbo and it cause the butterfly flap to become a sooty oily mess. A car will always have a dirty process of running so using some throtle body cleaner on it will likely help alot if its dirty. try the adaption procedure first tho as it might help.
