Just a silly question...how much driving do you do that is at 10mph? Most times this is less than 5%...so if everything else is fine why be concerned? As far as the why of it, you could have a slight vacuum leak or any number of sensors that are very slightly out of range, not enough to cause a problem, but enough to change mileage expectations. The addition of ethanol to our fuel has also impacted fuel mileage...The dirty little secret about any alcohol fuel is that nearly twice the amount of alcohol is necessary in order to produce the same energy output of gasoline...which will definitely lower mileage. Some power can be "recovered" by increasing compression ratios and changing engine timing (advance)...However today's vehicles are calibrated and built to burn gasoline and cannot without, major mods, be made to use anything but. Alternative fueled vehicles make a compromise in these areas but a compromise is just that.

A6 turbocharged. Whyu does it smoke when it covers a 120km per hour?


I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.

General rules of thumb: Low speed engine on acceleration with smoke in the exhaust plume = worn piston rings High speed engine accelerating (spooled up turbo) with smoke = oil form turbo bearing and/or piston rings Engine on over run (coasting down, foot off the gas) with smoke = oil from valve guides. VW/Audi make good engines with tight tolerances so none of the above should apply at 62K miles; just make sure that the oil (the right oil) and oil filter are changed regularly.

The car will pop alittle when you try to start it...It wants to start but wont..replaced the fuel filter,plugs.I have spark to all plugs..I can squirt gas into the intake and it will run but will not idle...


usually when a vehicle backfires, it is caused by the timing or a bad crank sensor. symtoms of a bad coolant sensor are--poor cold idle, stalling, ( rich mixture,retarded timing) slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, and poor fuel milage. check coolant sensor first. good-luck!!

Turbo= not working


Most likely the turbo is gone. What ever part of the turbo went, just replace the entire turbo. Not serviceable 99% of the time. The engine will not like being driven for any extended period of time with a bad turbo.

Car won't start without adding gas to air intake then won't idle


Check the fuel filter, you may have clogged it when you filled the tank.

Ok i have a 1990 audi 200 quattro its a 2.2l inline 5 turbo im having a problem its not accelerating right its sputters a bit and the turbo doesnt kick in it just makes this blowing noise what cani do


Hello, I used to own a 1989 audi 200 turbo. These cars have a rather complicated fuel injection system called constant injection system (CIS 2). They can be difficult for most mechanics to figure out, unless they are already familiar with it. If you do bring it to a mechanic, try to find one that is familiar with these cars. And don't be afraid to get a second opinion. I had one mechanic claim that my car needed several thousand dollars worth of parts, another was able to fix it for under a hundred. The only suggestion I have is that it sounds like it is vacuum related. Good luck!

How to improve the fuel efficiency?


my 2 cents -

1. You didn't specify your exact model, on this site you'll fond your answer - http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/bymodel/1989_Toyota_Camry.shtml

2. There are a few ways to do this, here's one -
- Fill your gas tank to the very top.
- Write down your odometer or reset you trip meter.
- Drive your car till it's time to fill it up again.
- When it's time to fill you tank, fill it to the very top (preferd in the same station, in the same pump).
- divide the number of miles (or kilometers) you drive, by the amount of gas you filled, This is of course only true for this gas tank, fuel consumption is effected by many things, load, driver, type of miles you do (city or hoghway), etc..

3. Service your car regularly, make sure tire pressure is correct, don't drive like you are racing.

Good luck,
Eitan.
