Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Audi a6 3.0 the car drives fine on the
freeway and street but for some reason on take off
from a stand still it putters as if the MAF is bad but
I have a brand new MAF... Also the the battery
gauge is bouncing inbetween 12-16 my friend said
its because the battery is being over charged by
the alternator... My car is stock only thing is I have
a HID kit that's all any answers plz

1 Answer


The HID lights is not and issue,the bouncing amps from alternator 12,to 16 is signs of a bad bad voltage regulator in the alternator itself,but would not cause to much isssue except flickeing lights,but should have no issue on the running of the car,sounds like you may have a clogged fuel filter,or bad gas,if it only does this on take off,may not even hurt to do a tune up,plugs wires.
