Question about 2001 Audi A4
Hello i have a problem with my 2001 audi a4 1.8t quattro ...my engine check light came on flashing and the car run really rough and engine shaking like 1 of the cylinder is misfiring,,,the strange part is sometime it stays on steady and the car runs fine...very strange i had 3 coils change but 1 i havent change yet. could that last coil i havent change causing this problem ,,,i borrow obd2 from friend had code reading a misfire on cylinder #4 ,o2 sensor,ignition module and thermostat sensor ....so which of this is causing the misfire or CEL coming on.. i do not want to go to the dealer to fix .dealer will clean me dry...please i need some advised on what i should do.
I would start with the cylinder 4 spark plug and make sure it look good and is firing correctly. After that I would look either at the final coil, ignition module and then o2 sensor. These problems are so hard to diagnose and are trial and error so much of the time.

I would say it's definately a vacuum leak. That can cause crazy codes to come up because other components on the car will operate improperly due to the leak.
