2000 Audi A6 starting problems


Start with your starter and make sure it's not stuck out and getting too hot. Starters in a simple explanation come out to make contact with the fly wheel and start the car then retract when not being used.

3rd time top has malfunctioned! Once down, will not close. It's a 2008 Audi TT. Dealer has repaired it and said it was the motor. I waited 3 days for repair. What could be the problem? My warrenty ends...


I have had my TT to Audi 12 times and have had to leave it for a week or two several time.

Thru an attorney I took a $ settlement after 7 repairs, I am very sorry I settled ... Audi should to a recall and extended warranty. I too have my warranty running out in October 2011 and only have 33,000 miles on the car ... not sure if I should keep; but with service record they don't even offer me much on trade in with this service record. I am now finding out this issue is not only my issue, my service department has issues with 3-4 Audi TT with the same issue.

I am going to call my attorney general and find out what can be done / reported and possible the better business bureau.

Just wanted to vent.

PS: Last time they replaced my system with the new 2011 system; no issue yet.

When you put it back, did you turn it an extra time? You have two strokes of compression. If you just turned it back once, it is probably on the exhaust compression, which means it is not at TDC. If you did, it will need turned once more to be at the highest point from TDC.

My Audi A4 2009 makes a rattling noise on cold starts which resolves in less than 30 seconds. Dealer says its an air pump. This doesn't seem correct. The noise comes from the front of the care. Does not...


READ THIS (happy ending so far...):
audi a4 2L turbo quattro, manual transmission with 98,000 KM. Perfect conditions, no oil leaks whatsoever.

Left the car off for two weeks in very cold weather (-10C down to -25C). When I restarted, it started immediately but with heavy rattling noise due to camshaft adjuster not getting enough oil pressure. After 3 minutes of warming up (outside temp.: -12C) at very low rpm (below 2,000rpm), I start moving the car. Still hearing heavy rattle noise. As soon as I pass 2,000 rpm, I get a scary red warning, low oil pressure. Turn off the engine immediately. In 1 minute, I re-start the car and the engine lights check ok, so I drive in first gear super slow (1,200rpm) hearing the same rattling noise. After another minute, finally the noise all the sudden disappears and the car starts running just fine.

Called Audi dealer and they told me that in extreme weather conditions, I should warm the engine for 10-15 minutes if necessary before start moving.
Take away: luckily, I didn't screw up the engine since I was using it at extremely low rpm (easy to do with clutch and manual transmission) until the oil reached full pressure. I am pretty sure now that the problem was leaving the car off for such a long time in freezing weather. All the oil flows back to the bottom, and when I restarted it, the cold oil with high viscosity took a long time to reach all the parts of the engine, specially the camshaft adjusters that are actuated by using oil pressure. Next day, the car started at -9C perfectly without making any noise (as usual). Basically, the longer you leave your audi in cold weather, the longer you might hear the rattling noise until the oil reach full pressure inside the engine. My car took 6 minutes to fix it after couple of weeks in cold weather. This makes sense to me; in fact, in the past I only heard the rattling noise after leaving the car off for a couple of days in the winter.
So far, this has had an happy ending....

Starting problem on my audi a6 2.8 quattro,,, i need help


Sounds like the gas presser valve or weak fuel pump. When it dose it again turn the switch on and leave it on for about 3 mins. and see if it will start. If it dose I would say the pump is weak.

Audi A4 1998 DIY service steps/manual


Go to www.audidiy.com or www.audiworld.com (look in their Tech area), and there are full procedures on how to do it (it's the timing belt service). It's not a difficult job really, but you may need to get some specialty tools such as Torx bits to do the job.

Make sure that you get G12 coolant from VW/Audi (the pink kind) and if you have some other color in there now, flush it fully before adding the G12. You can order everything you need, including coolant, from www.ecstuning.com (I've used them many times with full satisfaction). Don't waste your money on the advertised cam locking tool - it's very expensive and wholly unnecessary. Its intent is to keep the cams from spinning, but if you position the #3 cylinder (rear passenger side) to top-dead-center on its compression stroke, the cams would have to be hit with a hammer to turn them.

The job is not difficult really. I've done many timing belts on many cars before, so I know what I'm doing overall, but the first time I did an Audi 2.8L V6, it took me a total of 5.5 hours start to finish. Many other cars (like my 300ZX) take that long just to reach the timing belt. As for how these kinds of jobs go, this is a very easy one.

Buzz me back on here or in email at dizellow@yahoo.com if you have any questions you'd like answered related to this or the rest of your car and I'll do what I can to help you out.

Audi a4 1.8 avant 1997


my 97 a4 would start and then die, i had it diagnosed as the immobiliser in the dashboard costing about £600 !!! The battery went flat trying to start it so i took it off the car and charged it up, when i put it back on the car before i took it to get fixed i thought i would try it 1 more time and "hey presto" it started and ran and has not missed a beat since ! That was 2 years ago, it was like the computer had re-set itself with the battery removed for charging, i hope this may be of some help.
