Question about 1998 Audi A4

1 Answer

1998 a4 1.8T starts sometimes & sometimes not

This car will start great for days at a time and then leave you stranded because it refuses to start. I found a fuel pressure regulator at NAPA for $31 dollars and the same problem exists. I've checked spark under no start conditions and it is good. After posting this and if nothing works you'll read about an AUDI being pulled from the Ohio river!

replace the solenoid,but,if you are worried about being stranded,while you are there,replace the starter and on all connections,use electrical grease,to keep corrosion away,always use lock washers so nothing gets loose too.

CAR TURNS OVER BUT DOESN'T START


It's possible that the fuel pump is starting to go out. More often than not if a fuel pump goes bad, it just leaves you stranded. Sometimes as the pump wears it will develop a catch in it and lock up temporarily.

My 2008 Pontiac G6 just had the fuel pump replaced, since then (2 weeks) every 2-3 days my car will not start. If I wait 30 minutes or so the car will then start.


When it doesn't start, is it from a stone cold engine or is the engine warmed up and the 20 or 30 minutes lets it cool down? If it's warn then, I'd be going after the CPS (crank position sensor) sometimes they work fine when the car is cold but then they do not want to start when it hot. If it is the sensor, it will only get worse over time and leave you stranded.

2007 Vue hybrid. 12-volt battery dead? No electric key opening, lights, starting, etc. Can I try to trickle charge it? We;ve been away a week, but it has been sitting in a garage above 50 degrees.


If the battery is completely dead a trickle charge won't do much. These are designed to keep a good battery good. You need a regular battery charger set to 10 amps for a couple hours then 2 amps overnight. Be aware that sometimes if your battery has been completely killed it may not work for long, that is your car will start but within a few days or hours it will leave you stranded. You'll know because it will drag when you try to start it. Sometimes you get lucky and it works great for years.

Next time do use a trickle charger! Also if the charge you use is automatic then you can leave it hooked up in 2 amp mode when you are gone. Good luck!

Chrysler 99' town&country idiot lights guages go on&off


This is a very common problem on 1998 dodge caravan, voyager, t and County. You have a cracked circuit board in your instrument cluster. It is a dealer item. You can remove your cluster and install the circuit board yourself to save money but after the install you will have to take the vehicle back to the dealer to have it calibrated before the tach and the speedometer will work.
