Audi A4 1998 DIY service steps/manual

Hi,

I have a Audi A4 1.8 1998 model. It currently has 137000km, it missed the 130000km service at Audi. I would like to do the service myself.

I need to have a manual/instructions on how to do this. Please help.

    Hi!



    Thanks a mil for your input! I didnt even know that the timing belt needs to be replaced with 130k km service!



    The Audidiy and audiworld websites are blocked here at work! I will definitely check it out when I get home later. Im not much of a mechanic at all. I used to service my Honda Civic vtec, stuff like spark plugs, oil, oil filter, air filter. Other than that, other things I thought were better off being done by professionals!



    Thanks again for your info, should I decide to tackle this service by myself and need assistance, I KNOW WHERE TO GET IT!



    Have a great new year!



    Cheers

Go to www.audidiy.com or www.audiworld.com (look in their Tech area), and there are full procedures on how to do it (it's the timing belt service). It's not a difficult job really, but you may need to get some specialty tools such as Torx bits to do the job.

Make sure that you get G12 coolant from VW/Audi (the pink kind) and if you have some other color in there now, flush it fully before adding the G12. You can order everything you need, including coolant, from www.ecstuning.com (I've used them many times with full satisfaction). Don't waste your money on the advertised cam locking tool - it's very expensive and wholly unnecessary. Its intent is to keep the cams from spinning, but if you position the #3 cylinder (rear passenger side) to top-dead-center on its compression stroke, the cams would have to be hit with a hammer to turn them.

The job is not difficult really. I've done many timing belts on many cars before, so I know what I'm doing overall, but the first time I did an Audi 2.8L V6, it took me a total of 5.5 hours start to finish. Many other cars (like my 300ZX) take that long just to reach the timing belt. As for how these kinds of jobs go, this is a very easy one.

Buzz me back on here or in email at dizellow@yahoo.com if you have any questions you'd like answered related to this or the rest of your car and I'll do what I can to help you out.
