Audi a6 1996 2.0 fuel line leak

Hi moved from US and have bought an a 1996 Audi a6 2.0 petrol engine, 60K miles, everything works and runs fine but this week I noticed I have a fuel line leak. Losing fuel under the right hand front seat can tell it is corroded. I need to replace ASAP as this is my only car.

However, I have NO money for a mechanic so I have to do this myself.

I'm pretty good at simple repairs but need to know what I do here and what parts etc I will need so I can do this right.

Please where can I find this information on exactly what needs to be done and how tools etc....

Thanks

Find out the diameter of the line and get some tubing and compression fittings at a hardware store.

SOURCE: Audi A4 Quattro 2.8 alternator

Did they specify that both of those were for the A4 of your model year, or could one have been for the S4 (the twin-turbo version of the A4)? If they're both for the A4, I'd think that logic would dictate that the 120 amp unit would be for the 2.8L and the 90 amp unit for the smaller 1.8T engine. I'm not positive, and I've yet to come across discussions of this on the Audi boards, but that'd be my bet.

SOURCE: speedometer and odometer not working 92 audi 100

I had similar problems with speedos in two 1990 Audi 100s, it was some time ago, but the contacts on the circuit boards on the back of the speedo deteriorate and do not give a good contact. I bought second hand speedos, only to find they had similar problems, eventually it was very easy to fix, I shaved matchsticks to chisel points and pushed them into the circuit boards to add pressure on the contacts and improve connection. After that repair drove the cars for a few years and the problem did not recur. It was a long time ago and I cannot remember exactly where the matchsticks were placed but look for soldered points near the edges of the boards. Regards, Michael

SOURCE: Change the Front indicator on an Audi A4 2001

Take out the two Torx bolts on top of the headlight assembly. Then there is a third hidden bolt. Look through the holes in the top front of the fender, above and behind the headlight's turn signal portion (you'll probably need to shine a light in there) and you'll see the third bolt. Remove that and the headlight pulls straight forward and out. Then you can change the bulb.

SOURCE: audi a6 stereo on safe how do i fix it

Enter the radio code, take your car to the dealership with proof of ownership and they can get it for you, you should have it from the previous owner or if you bought it new, to enter it, hold the pscan and rbds buttons for a few seconds, then numbers will show up, press the corresponding buttons to change the numbers, when you have your code in, hold pscan and rbds buttons for a few seconds. when you release the radio should unlock, good luck

SOURCE: AUdi A6 gas tank button

There is no button to open the gas door from the inside of the car.  As long as the doors are unlocked, you should be able to push in the far right side of the gas door and the left side will pop open. I too spent hours looking for this non existent button..I went as far as to going back to the car dealership.

Why is my Audi A4 2010 petrol only doing about 300 miles before oil light comes on


2 questions.
1) Is the oil actually low on the dipstick?
If it is, you might have an oil leak, so you would need to look underneath and see. Also look for puddles when you park.
The most common reason for such consumption would be a burst oil pressure switch, or a leaking valve cover gasket.
Either of these will leak lots of oil.
The last possible reasons, which are really rare, would be engine parts defective,( like oil rings), or a leak in the brake booster which would suck oil from the crankcase into the brake booster.
2) If the oil is not leaking out, and the dipstick shows full, you will be needing a new oil pressure switch, or to have the electronics repaired.
God bless your efforts.

White smoke Audi 2.0 non turbo is this connected to excessive oil consumption is a 60k mile engine A4 reg 2001.


White smoke is usually coolant burning, but you say no loss of coolant, so must be oil burning. PCV is possible fault, especially since you say smoke is intermittent. Part itself should be cheap, less than $20. One your car I believe it is located in a pipe running from intake to valve cover.

Audi q7 black smoke coming out of exhaust


The reason my audi q7 had heavy smoke was because the diesel fuel injectors were dripping which can be checked by means of a leak test, this was caused by the fuel injection pump depositing micro shreads of metal in to the injectors, 5 of which failed.
If you're problem is the same, you will find that the problem occurs when the engine is hot, when the engine has been ticking over for a short period and then you hit the accelerator the heavy smoke is the excess fuel burning off, equally if the idle period is longer you will notice smoke in you're rear view mirror. Audi are well aware of the common engine faults, proof being in the 3 years or 60000 mile warranty, the only top motor brand that don't offer 3 years unlimited ( Bmw, Merc, lexus, hell kia & hyundi have more confidence), you may think I have been unlucky and landed a bad one, I bought a second one as i thought the same which low and behold i had full injector replacement and £1800 turbo fault. each car developed the faults between 63000 & 77000 miles, if you buy a second hand diesel audi with a 3.0 engine or above you are buying the name not reliability which is proof when you look up audi's on autotrader, there isn't many with more than 150000 miles, the same can't be said about BMW & MERC which have there cars with 250000 plus.

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.

My audi has a oil leak of some sort which is leaking into the air filter unit and has soaked my air filter, the oil leak is coming form aline that runs along the top and side if the air intake unit. why...


follow the line backwards down to the block and clean the breather(if fitted) this is not an oil leak, the pipe is there to **** up the engine pressure when decelerating.........the air filter should be changed every 20 thousand miles/2 years.....

No restart when warm audi 100


Do you checked the petrol filter? It can be simple as that.
check the MAF, the spark plugs and cabling, air filter, petrol pump.
I had the same problem with mine (same year, same model), I cleaned all the air intake system, fuel line, and now it's perfect (even needing to change petrol filter, i didn't changed it yet). Careful cleaning the MAF, if you don't know how to do it don't do it, ask an expert near you.
If you can't solve the problem this way, search for air or fuel leaks.

I solved mine cleaning the fuel line and the air intake system.

When to replace the timing belt on a 2002 audi a4 1.8T


Audi 4 cylinder engines must have timing belt replaced as soon as 75,00 miles but no later than 105,000 miles. When doing job properly the mechanics should be replacing belt, tensioners, rollers, waterpump, thermostat and gasket. Average price would be around $900-$1200 US dollars.

Fuel Filter


Hi . The fuel filters are fitted (For life if petrol) and every 40,000 miles for diesels . But if needed the petrol ones are under the right hand side rear near the fuel tank and have quick release couplings on them . and the Diesels are in the engine bay either side depending on engine type and confuration .
