Question about 1993 Audi S4

1 Answer

Car started and the check engine light came on. Had previously ran fine. Died backing out of drive but restarted easily. Died again at end of street. than about a half mile it acted as if it was running out of fuel. Died again when it went to an idle. has briefly started but acts as though it isnt getting fuel. Broke the line apart at the engine and it has great fuel pressure. It is getting fire, but seems as though the cylinders are flooded. Any help would be appreciated.

    I hope yours isn't the same problem as mine. Before i could fully figure out the electrical problem we discovered that from the fuel pump running continuosly it had flooded all of the cylinders. This caused scoring on the cylinders and even had gas in the oil. total loss of engine. Sold car for parts. Good luck

Read your code

,my advice to you is to purchase a Chilton or equivalent service manual for your vehicle,
all the necessary information to service
most any problem can be found within the pages, these manuals can be obtained
from almost any parts suppler at a reasonable cost there will be a section on how to retrieve codes and list of faults and basic repair suggestions

Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.


This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

Not the battery. Once the car is started, a bad battery will not cause it to stop running all of a sudden.
For engine to run you need - compression, air, fuel, spark.
Might want to check out your ignition coil for an intermittent condition - try replacing it.
And if it does not turn over(crank) check the wiring going to the starter motor,solenoid, for good connectivity. And make sure that your fuel pump is always getting power and pumping.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.
