Question about 1996 Audi A4
I have an audi a4 1996 1.8 and i have had bad idle from the start of having it like it doesent start unless i put foot on accelarator, so i replaced the maf(mass air flow sensor) Its a grey thing over a pipe in the car.
Right now it replaced i still have bad idle but no i also getting a lot of white smoke out of the back, the car seem to be like 10x more responsive and it does seem to keep the idle better while driveing.
Do you think my car needs something else fixing or maybe should i just buy loads of cleaning solution and put that in petrol and hope that help?
Hello chris first thing you need to do is while the car is running go to the rear of your car have somone increase the gas pedal to get it to smoke now smell the smoke does it smell like antifreeze if it does most likely headgasket going wich means your head needs to be pulled to change the gasket if it smells like oil possible valve seals clogged oil returns this is all serviced under your valve cover if car is turbo turbo seal internal most likely ruptured and is letting oil get into the exhaust port side have your turbo checked if there is wettness around the housing areallook for exsesive oil leaking externally goodluck please rate
