Check that the oil and coolant lines that run to the unit are'nt blocked as is sounds as though its overheating the turbo and its bindind up. I hope this helps.

2004 marquis. the starter seems to by spinning without engaging when I turn the ignition. Can you still short the posts on the starter solenoid to get the car started>


Look under the car at the Starter. If you just have the main heavy gauge cable going to the Starter, the answer is no. The Starter is spinning and the Bendix drive is bad.

If you have Solenoid wires in addition to the heavy cable at the Starter, you can try to jump the Solenoid under the car at the Starter. If the secondary wires (small) are not providing power to the magnet that throws out the Bendix, jumping power to the magnet will make the Bendix work. You do not want the Bendix to stay engaged or you will damage the Flywheel or burn up the Starter. You might as well check the Secondary (small) wires for corrosion because the problem is outside the Starter.

If the contacts for the magnet inside the Starter are burnt, jumping the Terminals will do nothing.

How involved is it to replace the driver's side catalytic converter? card edaler wants $1,200, but i've seen some converters for around $250.


Take your car to a qualified exhaust shop and ask for an OEM or same quality catalytic converter, it would be a LOT cheaper than the dealer one and you will get the same performance. Remember most car dealers make their money from maintainance services.

After shutting my car off everything seems normal then the fan will kick on and stay on until the battery goes dead or until I retart the car. Its a 2004 Audi A4 1.8L Turbo quattro.


I had the smae problem with my 03 A4 Cabriolet. It is the secondary air pump located near the pass front wheel. I unplugged it and left it off for a few months. When I brought it to the dealer to replace it they plugged it back in and it works again...go figure

Volvo slows down going up steep hills when air temp >95 Fahrenheit


THOSE VEHICLES HAVE A SECONDARY FUEL PUMP THAT FEEDS FUEL TO MAIN PUMP UNDER VEHICLE. THE SECONDARY PUMP IS INSIDE THE FUEL TANK. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE 2NDARY PUMP IS STARTING TO SEIZE ON YOU. CAUSING POOR FUEL PRESURE AND MAKING VEHICLE TO LOOSE POWER
