If it is "sometimes", you may have a fouled spark plug. Have the spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor replaced. If it still does this, have your harmonic balancer checked, as this will cause the timing to be off.

Also, before having any work performed, get the car to an auto parts dealer or mechanic and have a diagnostics test done (usually free at parts dealers, only takes about 10 minutes).

It could also be the crank shaft sensor or the camshaft sensor if not the plugs, wires, cap, rotor or the harmonic balancer.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

My audi a3 2.0 tdi has cut out and wont start seems like it is turning over really easy it has done 66k and was no funny noises there is no warning lights or anything. All warning lights work, car will...


Time to have a mechanic diagnose it...judging by your description...do you race the vehicle??? is it well Maintained??? Did you buy it new??? have you had the timing belt, and tensioners replaced??? If the timing belt gave way, and there were no funny noises, that means your car has a "non interference" engine, which is a very good thing...find a mechanic that you, or some of your friends trust, and let him/her take a look at it...you might need to leave it for a while...good luck...

A3 2.0 TDI changed radiator, how do you bleed the system


If you have no radiator cap that can be removed, you will probably have to do repeated cycles of engine temperature and just add coolant to the overflow until the engine stops draining it. This isn't like a hydraulic (brake) system so the chance of leaving bubbles behind is far less.
With a radiator cap, it's pretty simple; run the engine until the coolant is visibly circulating and add coolant as the level drops.

The starter will crank a couple of times, but doesn't start. The clock in the vehicle reset itself, possible dead battery? It will sometimes crank, and bog down like its not going to start... than it...


that's probably a weak battery, I don't think a bad starter would drag it down like that, have your battery and charing system checked, that'll fix it
if the alternator is putting out 13 volts at idle it's good
If you can get a larger capacity battery, it doesn't have to be physicaly larger, just more amperes output, and be sure to clean all terminals
