Question about 1992 Audi 100
My '92 Audi 100 CS just started having issues when starting. It will turn over but not fire. This has happened 3 times now. The first time I tried to start it 3 times, waited 30 seconds and tried again and the car started. About a week later the same thing happened. I tried waiting like I did before but this did not work. I waited about 30 minutes this time and it started. I drove about 9 miles and turned it off. When I tried to start it again it wouldn't work. When I came out in the morning (about 8 hours later) it started just fine. I don't know what's wrong and don't enjoy driving a vehicle that may or may not start. I just had the starter and ignition switch replaced 18 months ago and the fuel pump was replaced two years ago. Also, the car makes a clicking sound when it's on. Could this have anything to do with the vehicle not starting? It's always done that but seems to be quieter right after the oil is changed.
Any help would be great!!!
You're probably facing 'fuel pressure problem'. Your fuel pressure regulator doesn't hold pressure. FYI, it is located at the fuel distrbutor, has a cylindrical shape. There's a return valve that send back excess fuel to the fuel tank. A faulty FPR will cause this problem.
Do check it out.
