Car would not start

you get six months parts and labor. take it back and tell them the fault if you had belts changed including timing like you would on a normal service. not starting or going up hills is a good sign the timing is not right.

As gasoline sits idle for that length of time, it turns into shellac.
this in turn plugs up the orifices in the carb, use a good quality carb cleaner, or fuel injector cleaner as the case maybe. follow the directions carefully. You may have to do this a couple of times.
Good Luck

Had water pump and timing belt changed car ran good before the change. just installed new plugs and wires . car idles horrible.runs good over 1000 rpms but when you stop car idles extremely rough. is it...

it could be a broken or unhooked vacum line but i really am gonna go with the timing being out a couple of teeth it thats the case the car would idle rough and and stumble plus lack a bit of power on take off. if the timing is off the comptuer will compasate for that and advance the firing on the coil the comp uses a few different sencer's to determine when to fire it uses the cam shaft postion scencer and the crankshaft scencer you should have the timing rechecked by a different shop and see what they say for sure but be suer to tell them that you work done on the vechile.

When the car ran out of gas it may have tried to run on no fuel and retuned it self to attemp it. You may have to dissconnect the battery so the car can retune itself. When starting the car after reconnecting the battery. hold the engine speed higher than idle and turn every thing on. continue to run the car at the fast idle for a minute still holding the idleup a little put the car in drive holding to break and slowly let it idel down this will relearn the idle and should fix the problem

Fast idle wont kick down. it has to be shut off and restarted 2or 3 times. before it will kick down

I believe you will find that your idle air control valve needs to be replaced. This is located on the Throttle body. After replacing the idle air control valve, make sure you disconnect the battery ( either the negative or positive cable ) and leave disconnected for atleast 10 minutes. Then reconnect and start vehicle, your car may fast idle for a short period of time before it returns to idle so is so your ecu relearns the correct postion and resistance reading

Faulty fuel pump?

i would recomend you to sell your audi as fast as you can before its too late, audi is a very bad car, hasnt had any good reviews at all and in cars, its really luck if you dont have any problems with them. sell it and buy a new car, you can get a new one at a good price, the most important thing is that it will be new, keep that in mind ! good look
