Thing I see about dealers. The upgrade or reprogram computers. But that is it. We have to get them back to do the adaptive reset and relearns. There are many computers on a vehicle. Some of them are stuck in the same mode. They have to be reset also.

Emission can be an 02 sensor or catalic converter or fuel related problem. You need to have the codes read and go from there. You can drive the car, but you will damage the catalic converter after time. And it will eventually shut down on you.

What is the blue round thing under the hydrolic on Audi A4 1998

Do you mean the canister below the driver's headlight, down at the bottom? It's an evaporative emissions canister. If that's the one you mean, with the vacuum line coming off the top and running up along the driver's valve cover to the solenoid on the top rear of the engine, it's for emissions purposes. You'd do well to get 7-8 feet of silicone vacuum line and replace the whole thing. The heat of the engine bakes it until it's brittle and it breaks.

Audi a4 1999 When I start the car in the morning it rev's high for a few minutes and then when it drops i can drive. what do i need to fix this problem ???

How high does it rev? It's supposed to hold around 1200RPM until the cats heat up (the secondary air pump causes this) to help with cold start emissions.

No acceleration,audi 1.8t,runs like no boost

It's possible that the diverter valve (DV) has failed. The OEM valve has a plastic diaphragm inside and it can crack. If this happens, the car will leak boost air and will lose power as a result. Go to, click on Resources, then Tech, and then go to the engine article about replacing/upgrading the diverter valve - it'll show you where it is and how to do it.
