Car sputters bad, black smoke and really jerky. Stalls out also.


Asked by Sep 11, 2015 at 08:47 PM about the 2000 Audi TT Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2000 Audi TT, was driving down the
road just fine when all the suddon it started
to spit and sputter really bad out of nowhere  
and the 4 wheel traction light flashing. Had
to pull over and car stalled out. When
starting it up it would sit and sputter then
die, then sometimes it would start and the
idle seems ok but then die in like 15
seconds. I let it sit and cool, the started to
try and get it home and had black smoke
coming out tailpipe but managed to get it
home about 2 miles away. The ride home
was really jerky like car was going to sputter
out while I could floor the gas peddle. But
then it's like it would suddenly kick in and
accelerate for about 2-4 seconds then
sputter again really bad. Any idea what the
problem could be? Thanks..

Sounds like you got a major issue. Is the service engine or check engine light on? If so, scan it for codes. Something definitely has failed.
