Question about 2005 Audi A6 3.2

2 Answers

My car stopped and battery died after listening to the radio and putting perhaps cheap gas into the it. Could gas have clogged the filter so that it would not accelerate? OR IS IT A SENSOR GONE BAD?

After replacing the battery, all lights lit up brightly yet the car was still sluggish and unwilling to accelerate. The next day the car started as if it had been previously flooded because the AAA mechanic accelerated a lot to attempt to move the vehicle. Shortly thereafter, after moving it several feet, the pedal was to he floor. Simultaneously, it took the car nearly 20 minutes for the heating gauge to register between the cool and hot. Also, the amp would not move beyond 3.8. No matter how many times I attempted the acceleration would not go beyond 3.8 amps.

    I will check the alternator. Do you think it could be an EPC sensor. That light keeps coming on.

    Are you referring to the temperature sending unit for the gauge? Do you have a check engine light with a stored code number?

Clean your throttle body and check last time changed filters, air, fuel. Personally same situation happened too me but with different causes. Once bad fuel ( probably water/contaminated) and fixed that with ( thankfully had low fuel in tank) with five gallons of higher octane fuel and I also added an octant booster. It burned off the bad fuel but could difference in power fluctuations and once it burned it off I filled up again and no problem but, added a fuel treatment/cleaner for good measure as well. Now as for the second time my truck is throttle by wire which means it has a small stepper motor that controls the throttle and that is controlled by a rheostat linked to a pedal Instead on a cable as most older cars and
trucks have. The solution for me was to clean the throttle body with a standard throttle body cleaner I picked up at the local autoparts shop and with a clean rag. The "dirt" and contaminants that build with time will hinder the movement of the butterfly valve. If it stays closed engine just can't get enough air. After cleaning ( if that was your problem) you should get back the throttle response. If your like my girlfriend who lives near a big field with lots of squirrel's check for chewed up wires. Otherwise many things can cause the same type of problem with a different solution. Good luck.

My 1995 dodge caracvan dies when i put it in gear.it runs fine in reverse, only dies in forward.


Have you looked at the gas filter? If it's clogged it might be causing this. It's an easy remove and replace fix.

Car starts , idles a few seconds, then stalls


Could be a plugged fuel filter; very old gas (car has been sitting unused for some time) has pasted through fuel filter and clogged it. Fuel pump in gas tank is weak and the electric motor in fuel pump runs, gets hot and stops. Have someone listen behind the back bumper away from muffler. The sound of a fuel pump can be heard close to the underside of fuel tank (high pitch whine). If the sound stops before the car dies...that would indicate a faulty fuel pump.

Well when I drive the car for a bit, and it is warmed up when I start to decelerate coming to a stop the car will **** and when I come to a complete stop it will start jerking and then die. If I put it in...


In my opinion it could be:
1. Battery discharged
2. Battery connections loose or corroded
3.Air filter element dirty or clogged
4.Fuel injection system dirty or clogged

I would go for this last and check the air intake meter, clean the injectors, etc.

1991 Cadillac Brougham not getting gas


The fuel pump is located on the frame undrneath the passenger side rear door.If you have the throtle body injection used on the 305 engine the electric fuel pump puts out about 8 psi.
Sounds like you have a clogged fuel pump. Not that bad to change if you have the special tool needed to remove the fuel lines to the pump. Ask your local Auto parts store for help.
