Audi a4 1.8t random miss fire

Check out the site for NHTSA complaints. I believe there was a defect in the cylinder heads for this engine. The redesigned heads have a different suffix letter than the stock heads.

For a time, the Manufactuer was paying for the repair.

1996 Audi A4 2.6 V6 engine code ABC - need advice on how to do the valve timing settings with No.3 at TDC; both heads returned from the machine shop after being skimmed incorrectly set up. When stripped...

If you plan on doing more than light tuneup work, I highly recommend purchasing a manual for your car. We have for each of three vehicles a Haynes manual and it contains all the details on maintenance possible for the shade-tree mechanic. All are based on a complete rebuild.

I need a new engine head

Not a recall. Find a head in the junkyard and have the valves reground.
