Hey guys
Ever since I got my a/c replaced, my cel has been on. *Cleared the codes a couple times, but I keep getting P0238 - manifold pressure too high.
I also feel that when I slowly ease onto the throttle, once I get past a certain point, the car just starts to accelerate way more then normal. *Like it just lurches forward after that point. *It's really annoying, and kind of scary. *Could I be Wrecking something??
Has this happened to anyone else? *Ideas of how to fix the problem? *Something to do with the intercooler?
Any ideas or insight would be very helpful.
My dad thinks it's turbo lag haha**
Thanks in advance

i'm not sure how it is on the fsi but on my tsi i was having a manifold problem that resulted in some weird exceleration problems. turns out the control arm that opens and closes popped off the ball joint that guides it, causing it to get stuck.

i'd check that if you can.

now i have to replace the whole manifold, or so the dealership tells me, because they don't sell seperate parts to them. thank god for warranties.
