Any comparable car should work. Your car is a 98, so you would have to stick with Audi/VW cars that have the 30v V6 (98-01.5). The 97 and earlier years used an older 12v V6 and those aren't compatible. It's unlikely that the 1.8T models would work either. You'd have to look for A4, A6, and Passat cars in the model range I mentioned, and you may find that if you have a quattro model, your replacement would have to come from a quattro (Audi) or 4motion (VW) car as well. Try to find a donor car with your same drivetrain (30v V6, auto/stick - whichever you have, and 2wd/4wd, whichever you have).

To tell at a glance which engine is which, the 30v has black covers on the valve covers that say "5V" (for five valves per cylinder). The older 12v cars I believe actually say "12v" on them.

While driving the other day, something snapped and the power steering didn't work. On inspection, the serpentine belt was broken and my mechanic said the power steering pump bracket broke, causing the belt...


SOUNDS very plausible ,have had it happen on bmw a few times ,would recommend buying bracket re-assembling and running vehicle and checking all other pulleys that run on the serpentine belt carefully for wear or noise as it is usually a vibration/loose brackets that cause a mounting bracket to crack or fail ,sorry cant help you on costs or availability ,it often changes with dealerships

Fluid is leaking out the front of the power steering unit 1997 A4 Audi can it be repaired or do i have to replace?


Most likely you can get a seal kit from the dealer. It is most likely a front shaft seal. This is a fairly easy repair to do if you are somewhat handy.

Belt broke stering has gone tight-which belt do i need audi a4 1996


Give the model and year at an autoparts store and ask for a power steering belt. Will likely be running the waterpump and alternator too so you cant drive far because you will overheat the engine and or flatten your battery.
Loosen alternator bracket all bolts and move it to the shortest distance to the nearest pulley wheel. Slide belt around all free wheels and idlers (tensioning wheels) and move alternator bracket back to original position so belt is tight.
If you cant get the belt on belt is too short, if it is not tight with alternator about half way along the adjustment bracket belt is too long. Take it back to store, act real grumpy, try to leave with right size belt and a free gift.

Timing chain is loose how do I replace or tighten


You need to pull out the timing cover. 4-6 hours of work. Here is the step to remove the Cover, then you need to remove the Sprockets.
moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.png
  1. Remove the oil pan.
  2. Remove the power steering belt if so equipped.
  3. Remove the air conditioning belt, compressor and bracket if so equipped.
  4. Remove the fan clutch (fluid coupling), with the fan and water pump pulley.
  5. Matchmark and remove the crankshaft pulley(s). This bolt will be very tight. Use the counter-holding bar, properly installed, to hold the crankshaft while loosening the bolt. Use the pulley extractor or gear puller to remove the pulley from the shaft.
  6. Remove the water bypass pipe.
  7. Remove the fan belt adjusting bar. If necessary, remove the lower power steering bracket for access.
  8. Disconnect the heater water outlet pipe.
  9. Unbolt the timing chain cover assembly. Be careful to loosen only the correct bolts.

To install:
  1. Install new gaskets over the dowels on the timing chain cover. Slide the cover assembly over the dowels and pump spline. Insert the retaining bolts and tighten them. Tighten the 8mm bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm) and the 10mm bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm).
  2. Temporarily install the adjusting bar to the alternator. Install the adjusting bar to the chain cover and tighten the bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
  3. Install the heater water outlet pipe.
  4. Install the water bypass pipe.
  5. Install the crankshaft pulley and bolt. Use the counter-holding tool to hold the pulley and tighten the bolt to 116 ft. lbs. (157 Nm). If equipped with air conditioning, install the second crankshaft pulley.
  6. Install the water pump pulley and fluid coupling with the fan.
  7. Adjust the tension on the drive belts.
  8. Install the air conditioning compressor bracket, compressor and belt if they were removed.
  9. Install the power steering belt and adjust it.
  10. Attach the oil pan.
  11. Install the radiator.

Alternator bracket broke and can not get to last bolt to get it off to have welded. Any suggestions appreciated.


Is this the bracket that has the power steering pump under the alternator? If so the power steering pump has to be removed to remove bracket. To remove power steering pump you have to remove the pump pulley with a special tool and then press it back on with another tool. Both tools can be rented at your local Advanced auto parts store.
