Question about 1996 Audi Cabriolet

1 Answer

Hello to all!!!My car is running very sluggish and slow

I have a 1996 Audi cabriolet 2.8 and it runs very slow .It sometimes takes more time to change into second gear ,and it kinda thumps a bit.It has around 97,000 miles and have done alot of work to it ,but that problem is still there.I had the mechanics change the timing belt and the water pump at atound 70,000 miles.I had to get it fixed because it didnt pass the smog test one time ,and thats the only time i felt the car run how it should ,it felt really smooth and quiet .They changed the oxygen sensors and cleaned the air intake and some other stuff ,the mechanics werent very specific in the bill report to what they did.So do you guys think my problem lies within changing oxygen sensors or something else ???And if so, every when should i change my sensors ?

Audi Cabriolet 1996 the drivers window won't go up

I had this same problem and the only switch that worked was the master control between the seats. Under the dash near the steering column is the power window module. Take that out and pry off the plastic cap. Inspect for bad solder joints on the printed circuit board. I re-soldered a bad joint on mine and it fixed the problem. Audi wanted $500.00 for the part only!
