I have a 99 A4 1.8t avant and i'm having these wierd problems. Every time i gas up my car it has trouble starting. I have to step on the gas and finally after about 5 try it starts but i have to drive off so it stays on. After that it dosn't do it again untill i gas up again. My check engine light and it's for P1136. can the cause be from my MAF or lines somewhere?

I'm not totally sure but i thought that a lot of what controls the idle of this car or at least the nDBW is that it regulated idle and startup mostly from the evap from the top of the fuel tank, you could have a bad hose or valve, i think. If it drives fine and does this only on a new tank where vapor pressures are low or irregular this might cause your problem.
that is try to start after it's only been sitting for 5 min. first thing i'd do is put in some injector cleaner. the code is long term fuel trim. sounds like your having to do a tba everytime this happens. you have an aeb engine? searching the A4/B5 forum may help.<ul><li><a href="http://www.bentleypublishers.com/tech/audi/audi.dtc.table.htm?stickyEmail=&ticket=none">http://www.bentleypublishers.com/tech/audi/audi.dtc.table.htm?stickyEmail=&ticket=none</a</li></ul>
