There is no carburetor on these cars , the idle air control valve is an easy thing to change it is on the passenger side near the firewall on the back of the engine buy the new one so you know what it looks like it has a wire connector on top 2 bolts and a gasket behind it just unhook it unbolt it remove the old gasket install the new one with the new gasket and plug it in simple there is no sealer required

Can't find where to put the freon in my Audi 96 A6 quattro?

Only a high pressure service valve is used for A/C system servicing. A low pressure service valve is not installed. Perform all A/C system service (ie. discharging, evacuating and charging) through the high pressure service valve only.

My 98 audi a4 quattro just had thermostat and water pump put in still no heat and still in the shop seems like they cant figure it out either

Have them look at heater control valve. Audis have an exotic heater control valve some are in view in engine compartment, others are BURIED under dash. I highly suspect that be the issue.

My audi 1995 2 6 quattro is lackin power runs fine tho

1. When idle, listen to the engine and see if there is any miss fire. If you hear some misses, not a smooth run, it means either you have to replace the spark plugs because one or more are not working or one of the leads to the spark plugs isn't connecting properly. It is recommended you change the spark plugs every 10.000 miles given it's a 15 years old car.
2. If there's a smooth idle run, then there might be something wrong with the fuel pump (which is located close to the fuel tank under the car) or with the air valve which is located near the engine, both can be clogged not passing enough fuel or air required.

2007 Audi A4 Quattro 2.0T Idle Vibrations

mcdevito75 here, A vibration while idleing is not really normal, a rough idle could be many things, wrong octane gas, dirty gas filter, dirty smog controls. Have your local shop take a look for you.

Audi a4 quattro

a rubber one,should be changed at 50-60,000 miles. Audis recomendation is like 90,000 I think but have heard of them going much sooner than that. A preventitive Cam -timing belt job way cheaper than doing it after it breaks and ruins valves and cylinders!
