SOURCE: audi timing belt

It's a complicated job, and usually takes about 8 hours to do the full service if you're familiar with the car's mechanicals, you have a good array of tools (air tools help a lot), you're familiar with what you're doing, and with how to disassemble everything (including removing the front of the car - I'm not joking). There's more to the job than just the belt too - you need to replace the timing belt, timing tensioner, water pump, thermostat, serpentine belt, and serpentine tensioner. If your cam seals are leaking (which is also known to happen), you'd need those and plan for a couple more hours as well, due to the care that must be taken not to scratch or score the cam end caps.

SOURCE: Audi A6 quattro 1999 the ABS light is on and the

That indicates that the ABS controller is having issues. The ABS controller is the metal box along the driver's side of the engine, just in front of the coolant overflow tank. The controller is the black box on top of it with the harness attached. You can buy a new one (expensive) or send yours to www.modulemaster.com for a warrantied rebuild. They have a great reputation on the Audi forums I frequent, and you can drive the car while it's gone (you just won't have functioning ABS while it's gone).

My 2000 audi a6 quattro says it needs service but i dont know what kind of service it needs can you help me


Ignore that first reply. The "service" indicator on the dashboard is programmed to come on every certain number of miles (usually 5-10k, in line with typical service intervals). It's a reminder to you that you probably have some sort of inspection or periodic maintenance due. It is NOT an indicator that there is a problem with the oil or the rear brakes. If there's a failure of some sort, in a system that is monitored by the ECU, the check-engine light will illuminate. The "service" warning is simply a reminder that you should check the owner's manual to see what servicing is due at your mileage.

Oil Warning light.


I would take it to the dealer immediately. This could indicate a serious oil pump problem. It may be nothing, but if your oil pump goes out, your engine will lock up; and that means you'll, at best, be repairing major parts. At worst, you'll be buying a new car!

Audi Quattro A6 will not go into drive


It's the brake pedal switch. There is a switch down on the pedal arm that closes when you press the pedal down, and sends a sensing voltage to the controller, telling it the brakes are applied. This allows the transmission lock to disengage so you can shift out of Park. When that switch fails, the lock won't disengage. You need to replace that switch and you'll be fixed.
