The timing must be off. There is a crank lock that must be installed when changing the belt and also a holding "jig" that holds the cams in place while you are changing the belts. Also the cam pulleys must be separated and free from the cam shafts when installing the belt and tensioning in order for the engine to be timed correctly.

SOURCE: 97 audi a4 no power/battery fuse?

Sounds like either the battery leads are on the wrong way round, or the starter main cable is touching something and shorting to earth. Retrace your steps and check your connection locations.
Either that or its a dead short through the starter. Remove main cable from back of starter and tape up incase of short. then reconnect battery. If ok now then your looking at starter motor.

SOURCE: temp guage not working

It's most likely one of two things: 1) coolant temp sensor (meaning the gauge isn't working), or 2) stuck thermostat (meaning the gauge is working but the coolant isn't getting hot)

Start with the coolant temp sensor - it's on the back of the engine, somewhat near the top, toward the passenger side. On your car it's likely a blue sensor body (as is the CTS on my 99 A4 2.8). The easiest way to get to it is to remove the tube leading from the airbox to the throttle body. Take that off, and you can look down and see that there's a squarish plug with four wires plugged into the top of the coolant temp sensor (at the right angle you can see the color of the sensor - black, blue, or light green, but most likely blue on your car). There's a C-shaped retaining clip that holds the connector onto the sensor which must be pulled off (pull more or less straight back toward the firewall), and then the sensor can be unplugged. The sensor itself is just pressed into the opening in the block, not screwed in - you just have to pull upward to get it out (it can be tough - try opening the cap on the coolant tank to alleviate pressure in the system). The sensor is not expensive (around $25 from www.ecstuning.com - call them up with your VIN number to guarantee they send you the right sensor).

If you change that out, and it doesn't fix the problem, don't sweat it - it means your temp sensor was working, but replacing it was a good idea anyhow since they're prone to failure and can cause all kinds of wacky problems when they go. Next most likely problem is a thermostat stuck partially or fully open, and this is more invasive - it requires removing the front bumper, opening up the core support (with radiator and AC condensor), losing (and having to flush and refill) your coolant, and the removal of the serpentine belt and fans. It sounds horrifying but it's pretty easy actually.

I'd suggest starting with the CTS and see if it fixes the problem. If it does not, reply here and let me know and I can help you through the thermostat replacement if you're mechanically inclined and have the tools. If you're in the northeast, I can do either repair for you (I'm in the southern tier of NY) and save you a bundle over a dealership, and save you the aggravation of doing it yourself if you're not mechanical or don't have the tools or experience.

1999 Audi A4 V6 automatic does not want to start. It cranks but almost sound like there is no compression, what can be possible cause. Car is not using oil or anything was fine previous day


When was the last time you had the timing belt replaced? If it broke, you likely have internal damage. Hope it's something else, but this is a possibility since it had a belt and not a chain.

Im replacing the water pump, timming belt on my 1996 audi a4 v6 2.8, they told me i need an idler roller and a tetioner roller, are those two the same thing? also what is a relay roller?


The idler pulley and the tensioner pulley are different. You will need special tools to do this job. I just completed doing the timing belt on my own 96 Audi A4 Quattro.Do you have a service manual for your car as this will help you alot. The tools you need are listed in the service manual with complete directions to complete the job. There are complete timing belt kits available that include the tools needed. The reason they recommend changing all the components is because it is often one of the components that fails that causes the timing belt to break.

2002 audi a4 v6 cranks but wont start..has fuel and spark.thanks..eurosontherun@yahoo.com


If it has fuel, air and spark, it only needs one more thing to fire,...compression. If it has those four things, in the correct ratio, it MUST fire. If you are 100% sure on the fuel, air and spark issue, start looking at the timing. I would also have the codes read off the ECU. Could you have " thrown " the timing belt?

Where is the thermostat on my 2.8 V6 engine 1999?


If it's the same as the 99 2.8 V6 in the A4, it's quite a ways inside the front of the engine. You have to remove a lot of the front of the engine and you'll find it partially hidden behind the timing belt tensioner. Foolish place to put such a part unfortunately, but at least on my A4 that's where it is.
