'92 Audi 100 CS turning over but not starting

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 have a bad camshaft sensor. It's located at the back of the driver side valve cover. Takes 20 minutes to replace. I had exact problem and this solved it.

    I ve a similar problem with Audi 11, year 1991.

    It used to NOT start when cold but even 2 hrs after parking on a warm day it will restart. But after a full day not starting, even on a warm day it will not start..

    The ignition and sparks to the plugs are excellent but seems no fuel into the cylinders by the I removed a plug after several crankings....but no fuel....nor any smell of unburned fuel at the tal pipe.
    But now it won't start period. Cleaned the air mass flow meter from inside and also the intake manifold area where the flaps open for acceleration control. But npo response.

    Again its the fuel not going into cylinders.

    Have checked the pressure at the outlet of Fuel filter...its plenty...and also every time you turn the ignition on can hear the fuel pump...priming and then stopping.

    Any sugeestions...??
    .will appreceiate !!

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.

I have an audi 100 cs quattro. My battery is good but my engine won't turn over. Could it be my starter?

How do you know your battery is good? A common mistake is to assume that if the lights, radio, etc, work that the battery must be good. A lot more energy is required to start the engine than is required for the accessories. If your battery isn't in great shape it won't turn the engine over.

Assuming you've checked that. Can you describe what happens when you try to start the car? Is there ANY noise? Clicking sound maybe? Could be the starter if you hear a buzzing noise (or no noise, assuming you do have a good battery).

2002 audi a4 v6 cranks but wont start..has fuel and

If it has fuel, air and spark, it only needs one more thing to fire,...compression. If it has those four things, in the correct ratio, it MUST fire. If you are 100% sure on the fuel, air and spark issue, start looking at the timing. I would also have the codes read off the ECU. Could you have " thrown " the timing belt?

Have a 1992 CS 100 that wont turn over. Battery is new and everything has power. Runs good if push started but will not start once turned off. Any ideas?

first bypass fusible link to see if it's at fault then, if it still don't start,your starter should be tested. it takes a good starter to turn the engine over.

Audi 100cs does not crank and does not start

If you have acess to a mutimeter check the batery voltage. Should be around 12.5 volts. also check batery voltage when trying to crank engine. Should drop to 9volts while cranking. If it dose but engine dose not turn over you know power is still going to the starter motor but its just not turning. This could be a bad conection in the starter some where.if voltage dose not drop you know power is not reaching the starter motor. this could be a bad earth to the starter from the baterty somewhere. But also listen for clunking or clicking noices while cranking which would surgest the starter is trying to turn. try this before doing any other diagnostics.hope this helps
