Most likely not the problem.  Leaks cause stumbling and the car will
do anything but act fine.

Unplug the multifunction temp sensor, and test-drive the car.

If you get full boost, replace the sensor.  They're around $50-60 I
think, and available from almost any of the favorite parts
sources(www.audifans.com->parts vendors.)

Do -not- leave it unplugged, it drives the gauge, among other things,
and if the car were to overheat, you'd never know it.  It also sends
the overheat signal for a good reason...if the car's overheating, the
ECU limits power to the lowest and the AC shuts off, both to cut back
on heat generated and get as much cool air through the radiator as
