If you have broken a cylinder head bolt, you then need to remove the cylinder head. After it's off, if there is enough bolt remaining above the block deck, generally you can grab it with vise grips and take it the rest of the way out. If it's broken flush with the deck, drill into the center of it and drive a torx bit into the hole. Most times you can back it out using the bit on a wrench. In very rare cases, if the bolt still will not come out, you can drill the entire bolt out and install an appropriate sized helicoil to repair the damage. (use drill and tap that comes in the helicoil kit to make sure it seats properly. it's best to make a guide for the drill bit to avoid moving the hole off center. An easy guide can be made by putting a bushing into the appropriate hole in the cylinder head with an accurately placed hole in the center that fits a long drill bit. Put the head back on the block and drill. Remove all filings and debris when finished and do not permit any filings to get into any of the cylinder bores.
Replace all head bolts with new when re-installing the head.

They make extractors that you could try and use to remove it you have to drill a little hole and then insert the removal tool, but they make different kinds. Worse case would be have to remove the head and hope that there is enough bolt left to get vise grips or something else clamped on tight enough to remove the bolt. Or the bolt will have to be drilled out and the hole re-tapped. This last step should not be attempted by a novice, but can be done successfully.

1998 audi a4 quattro I broke this little wire with a tiny box connected to it it runs from the coil pack harness to the coil pack bolt looks like a ground not sure I snipped it off and ran the wire direct...


All I know is that the coil is self grounding in itself. That might have been a whire that detects resistance more than a ground. Try to fix it more like the way it was, worst case you could have just blown the coil pack,

Check your transmission fluid. If you have not changed it in 75,000 miles change it. This is the cheapest fix before you look at more expensive repairs.

Heatbolt torque settings for audi 2.8 v6 30 valve quattro 1998 sedan


I assume you mean "Cylinder Head Bolts".

Tighten bolts in two-step sequence (See diagram)
Step 1 = 44 Ft. Lbs (60 N.m)
Step 2 = Additional 1/2 turn

These are "torque-to-yield" bolts and NEW bolts must ALWAYS be used when the cylinder head bolts are removed.

Audi a4 quattro


a rubber one,should be changed at 50-60,000 miles. Audis recomendation is like 90,000 I think but have heard of them going much sooner than that. A preventitive Cam -timing belt job way cheaper than doing it after it breaks and ruins valves and cylinders!

Support Bracket power steering AUDI 1998 2.8


Any comparable car should work. Your car is a 98, so you would have to stick with Audi/VW cars that have the 30v V6 (98-01.5). The 97 and earlier years used an older 12v V6 and those aren't compatible. It's unlikely that the 1.8T models would work either. You'd have to look for A4, A6, and Passat cars in the model range I mentioned, and you may find that if you have a quattro model, your replacement would have to come from a quattro (Audi) or 4motion (VW) car as well. Try to find a donor car with your same drivetrain (30v V6, auto/stick - whichever you have, and 2wd/4wd, whichever you have).

To tell at a glance which engine is which, the 30v has black covers on the valve covers that say "5V" (for five valves per cylinder). The older 12v cars I believe actually say "12v" on them.

A4 Quattro,misfire detected cyl4.


Coil packs are relatively common failures on the B5 A4, although it's usually on the four-cylinder turbo. Swap the coil pack with another one on the bracket, clear the code, and then run the car and scan for codes. If the code doesn't change, then the problem is plug or wire. If it follows to a new cylinder driven by the same coil that is currently failing at cylinder four, then it's the coil pack.
