    Something wrong!!

    I have a 2000 WS6 A4 74k miles with pacesetter lts and i ran into a problem today on the way to class. The car wont hardly take off, it stutters really bad until i get into the higher rpms where it finally gets going. My check engine light has already been on since i installed the headers, but whenever this happened the light started flashing for a minute or so, I'm kinda nervous about this since this is the only problem ive had out of it. Any ideas? I was thinking it may be plug wires, they are still stock and now i regret not changing them when i installed the lts. thanks alot and sry if this is too long lol.

    Youll probably find a missfire code. Most likely a plugs/wires issue

    Blinking SES = engine miss. Make sure your new headers have not melted through a spark plug wire, that will definitely cause that issue.
