Throttle dies

A6 2012 5.0
15,000 miles and tuned

While normal driving when I decide to romp on it occasionally it'll just bog down basically (happened maybe 10 times) and not go until I release the pedal and step back on it. Any ideas fellas.

I know I'm stating the obvious but could it be traction control or advancetrac kicking in?

I had a similar experience with my 12 A6. It was the tune. I was able to datalog so the tuner could see the issue because it would occur between certain speeds with anything more than about 50% throttle. This was a while back when I first had it tuned so I cannot recall the specific issue that was occurring but it was corrected and never popped back up again.

No. It's not like that. It's like it dies before it can even get into it.

I was wondering if it was the tune but I read something before (before my issue occurred) and people weren't turning to the tune but rather to something else. But I can't find where I saw it being spoken about. But I will try and contact my tuner today.

Have you tried data logging your tune to see what's up? That would tell you a lot. Did it just start happening or has it been going on since you tuned it? Who's tune by the way?

Tuned by vmp. And it just really started happening. And I've been tuned for months. That's why I'm not thinking it the tune. I have data logged but it wasn't happening back then. Just sort of occurred.

It's not the tune then if it just started happening. Tunes just don't go bad. It would be a big help if you provided more information. Do you have an aftermarket CAI? What other mods?

No other mods. I have a k&n drop in filter. And axle backs. I have stuff waiting to put on but want to get this resolved first.

I have a stock 14 auto with axle backs only. I have had this happen from a roll. But have noticed it only happens when the traction control is on. Try some testing do your pulls/launches with traction control on and in the off, sport and advance off positions. It sound like the traction control is kicking in right away.

But when traction control kicks in. The traction control light in the dash will light up. Not in these cases.

I still think you need to data log. The reason being is there's probably nothing wrong with the tune but a data log can actually point out where the problem is.

Quick possible fix is to seafoam your motor. You may be surprised by the result. I've been doing both my cars about every 6-8 months, and they always run more smoothly afterwards. Kind of a must-do if you have a lot of city driving, in my book...Sometimes things get carboned and gummed up, and just need a little cleaning...
