my 215000mile Audi a4 starts immediately every time. Very likely to be timing related, especially if it was okay before the belt change. Hard starting for slightly mistimed engines is a known problem.

Hi, I had the same problem. it is the imoboliser, it reads a code in your key while starting. you need to get the code in the key reprogramed. if that wont work you will need to get a new ignition barrel. Audi dealer will reprogram your key.

The oil pump is not getting oil into the top of the engine quick enough on start up
I have a similar problem with a Mazda
Got over it by adding a can of STP Oil treatment to the engine
That coats the surfaces better than the standard oils and cuts down on the noise and the wear factor

Hi there again
Sorry to hear you are still having problems.If you are going to change the pump I would certainly not recommend you do it yourself.If it is the V4 motor I am thinking of, you would need to get to it by removing the rear seat ,remove access panel , and pretty much play around in the gas for an hour or so to get it off in the first place.
What I did find was this on the net on a recall by Audi to replace 2002/03 model fuel pumps as noted below.
RE: 2002 Audi A4 Fuel Pump Change:
I just had my fuel pump changed out by the dealer. Here is what the letter said-
"Safety Recall JL 2003 year Audi A4 quattro with 1.8L Turbo or 3.0L engine and 2003 Model year Audi A6 with 3.0L engine"
The fuel pump on some affected vehicles may contain a carbon brush set that is susceptible to premature wear.
On invoice it says-
JL12 Install fuel delivery unit and sealing washer.
1 8E0-919-133-G Washer
1 8E0-906-087-P Fuel Pump
No charge for unit or install. Just call them up and give the vin number to see if your car is affected. On the other note of your code error '1&3 misfire',try and have it re-set (it might be an old error)and see if it comes back. Hope this helps ,and I will research your problem further with pleasure if need more help.
