Question about 1998 Audi A4

Open Question

I have a 1998 Audi 2.8 Quattro and last week the Engine Light came on and the car lost power. The technician hooked up the computer and the code came back: P0102 - Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input. The tech changed the Flow Sensor and it seemed to fix the problem. Yesterday the Engine Light came on again and the car lost power. The technician hooked up the computer and got multiple codes: P1338 - Camshaft Pos.Sensor,Bank1 Open Circ./Short to B , P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected, P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected, P0302 Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected, P0303, Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected. The car will not accelerate above about 50 miles per hour and, if I turn on the Air conditioner, the power drops even further and the oil light comes on.

SOURCE: 12 codes; 90174, p0171, p0175,p0300,p0301, p0302,

90174 (guessing it should be p0174 = system too lean)
92198 (guessing it should be p2198 = Oxygen Sensor Stuck Too Lean / Rich)

p0171, p0175 = system too lean (usually related to MAF Sensor)
p0301= Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected (Coil related most likely)
p0302 = Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected (Coil related most likely)
p0303 = Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected (Coil related most likely)
p0316 = Cylinder Misfire Detected (Coil related most likely)
p0420 = Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold
p2195, p2196 = Oxygen Sensor Stuck Too Lean / Rich (most likely the rubber hose from valve cover to throttle body

You may want to have your MAF changed, Coils changed, and your O2 Sensor checked. Also any one of those faults can also trigger another fault. I.E your O2 sensor could be could, but since it's misfiring, it's being triggered because the exhaust gases aren't what it should be. Hope this helps

SOURCE: 2003 mercedes Benz C240 codes P0300, P0301, P0302

P0300 Random Misfire Detected
P0301 Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected
P0302 Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected
P0303 Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected
according to this fault codes first mark ignition coils
3 ---------------- 6
2 ---------------- 5
1 ---------------- 4
this right banks and left bank, please remove Ignition coils with lids and spark plugs from right bank and swap with left bank, if fault code change as
P 0304 Cylinder 4 Misfire Detected
P 0305 Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected
P 0306 Cylinder 6 Misfire Detected
You can Identify it's a faulty ignition system then next swap ignition lids from ignition coils be careful each coils have two lids one short and other long bit deference and when you remove and fix it to the car keep in mind correct order because each coil two different fire for two spark plugs don't mix up, if you mix it can create the fault code.if you detect any fault ignition coils or spark plugs or lids replace that and also whether god or bad recommend to replace spark plugs, find the right that's most important thing, if this way couldn't found the any ignition fault next step is check fuel presser, when the engine running fuel presser must be around 4.5 bar without engine running must be 4 to 6 bar if the fuel presser too low need to check two different things one is fuel pump other is fuel injectors, in this case you can swap injectors from right bank to left bank and find is the injectors leaking, if not leaking faulty fuel this information helped you? if yes please leave a comment,
