Question about 1996 Audi A4

Repair shop can't find A/C pressure connections Audi 96 A4

I took my 96 Audi A4 to have the A/C pressure tested. The mechanic could not find a place to hook up the hi/lo pressure gauges. I found a picture on the internet that showed a newer model Audi with the hookups in the back part of the engine section, just to the right (passenger side) of the battery. They are definitely not there on my car. I did find a connection on the low pressure side of the cooler in front of the radiator, but I am not sure if it is a pressure test connection. The shop where I took the car is competent (other than this car), trustworthy, and reasonably priced; I know what other shops charge for Audi's, so I hope someone can give me some help.

The 1996 Audi A4 only has a High side refrigerant port. Right where you found it. Right side of radiator.
(Not to insult your intelligence. The passenger side of the car is the right side)

Look for the refrigerant lines going to the exchanger.
With this single port, you must evacuate the entire system, and replace the refrigerant with the proper amount.
(Obviously you can't refrigerant from cans, to the high side)

Your competent auto shop will have an evacuator, and charts to show the proper amount of refrigerant.

I have an Audi a4 97 Just bought it in the oil pressure light flashes and beeps three times Now the dipstick is reading full What could be my problem


take it to an accredited service shop , preferably one with experience on the make and have the pressure tested with a mechanical gauge
it could be a faulty oil pressure sensor unit, wiring, ( easy fixes) or more serious pump, pump pickup, bearings valve gear clearances

Why do I still have low pressure light on?


The oil pressure may actually be low. Remove the sensor and connect an oil pressure testing unit in its place. Take the readings at idle and usually also at 2000 rpm. Not sure about the 2000 but the service manual will give you the test specs. Compare your readings to the min/max given in the manual.

Audi a4 1998 tapping noise only when idles under valve cover


Sounds like a bad valve lifter or a valve out of adjustment. It's probably a bad hydraulic valve lifter. In idle, when the oil pressure is lowest, it is not filling with oil. When the motor revs up, oil pressure rises and fills the faulty lifter.
If you do have mechanical lifters, the valve is probably out of adjustment. If you do car work, pull the valve cover and see if it's adjustable. Of course, you'll need the specs from VW/Audi.
Otherwise, it's probably a shop job.
Sorry.

The rear right-side passenger window goes down, but not back up. I can pull it up and it stays within an inch of the top.


The problem you describe is caused by a failed/broken window operator mechanism. The fix requires the window operator mechanism to be replaced. You can search on Audizine.com for a DIY thread describing replacement of the window operator, or have an independent Audi repair shop or the Audi Dealer replace the window operator mechanism. The parts cost about $150.

1996 audi a4 transmission hard shifting


Get the transmission scanned at the dealership. If it has incorrect gear ratio code stored, it needs a transmission. Only the torque convertor or valve body can be replaced for any repairs at the dealership, so it needs to be diagnosed correctly. Any authorized ZF transmission repair shop can also repair them, more than the Audi dealerships can, so thats another alternative.
