A diagnostic for $120 is not bad if there was something wrong and it ended up fixed (plus more if parts add up).

But that is too much if no success.
He should have printed out a list of codes downloaded from the car's control module.

We can't help you with that until we know the codes. And a place like Autozone will read the codes for free.

Sure it could be the fuel injection, but is much more likely to be the oxygen sensor, loose gas cap, bad temp sensor, bad spark plug wire, etc.

Check Engine Light On - Occasionally Stalls when shift to reverse.


If the check engine light is on, there has to be a code stored in the engine computer or body computer.
You may need to try another parts store, or a shop that has a scanner instead of a simple code reader.

When you try to start my 99 Alero the security light starts blinking and it will not start. The light blinks for about ten to twelve minutes before going off.


The Problem is your VATS security system. I just fixed this in my 96 regal 3 days ago. You can go the cheap way, and bypass the key. (link #1) or spend 200 bucks and rip that whole garbage system out of your car. (link 2) I bypassed my key, worked for about a year till the computer part started failing. then i just did a full rip out.

Owners manual


I have not found any free sites for the Audi manuals, but to print them would take at least 200 pages, so your best bet is a CD or a used manual, try ebay motors 1st then if nothing comes up run an internet search with Goggle:

Engine don't start and have a clicking sound


you should check and see the batttery smart visor indicator (if applicable - see owners manual)
this may be that the battery has been drained and does not have enough power to rotate the starter. lights, dashboard, instruments light up ok as the voltage is there but the power (amperage) is low. please refer to owners manual on how to recharge your battery. bare in mind that removing the baterry from the care will reset systems (audio, alarm) and you wil need to recode them by using the codes provided with the car.
