After letting my car sit for 8+ hours, every time I start my car and put it into either drive or reverse, it pulls hard as if I'm pressing on the accelerator, when I'm not. In order to not let it accelerate, I have to press down on the brake quite hard. This finally goes away after driving it for a few miles.

Audi A5 3.0L diesel quattro experienced total loss of power. Luckily had just come to a halt. Engine will not restart. Turns out the failure of main the main diesel pump destroyed entire fuel line system! Audi quoted 13,000K replacement cost to change all 3 pumps, all 6 injectors and clean fuel tank! I am shocked. Audi dealer said quite a few cases have occurred with the exact same problem! very disappointed that nothing has been done about this known issue.
