SOURCE: We have a 90 Quattro V8. Last summer I changed

Your V8 Audi has two necessary sensors that malfunction due to their placement in extreme heat on the lower left side of the engine just inside of the header/down pipe connection. They read the flywheel position for the engines computer ECU. The reference sensor is always suspect, but the speed sensor may need to be changed, as well. The wire connectors to the sensors that sit above the FL suspension can be tested, or just replace both sensors to get some quality time with your V8.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. There are a few things that come to mind when hearing your issue. You need to adjust your idle and see if that is the issue. Try turning it up and see if that is why you have low rpms. If the adjust doesn't solve your issue, you may have a bad idle control sensor. You still want to make sure that the battery is good and holding a proper charge. Inspect your battery wires and make sure the terminals are clean and not damaged. Make sure the post are clean as well. If your vehicle is not getting enough power to certain parts, it is going to effect the car in a negative way. Look over your engine and scan it to see if you have a vacuum leak. A simple leak can cause the car to act up. You want to make sure that the fuel filter and air filter are not clogged. You should test to see your current fuel pressure just to see if it can be fuel related. I would lean more to the idle sensor if adjusting the idle does not work. I am concerned about the battery and alternator light though. Even if it is at low idle, you shouldn't be seeing them. Make sure you check out the battery and the wires, from the battery to the alternator. If it is possible to get codes off your computer, by all means do so. This may lead you to the root of the problem. I know it is a lot to check but anyone of these parts can cause your issue. Feel free to ask any questions you wish.
