Question about 2002 Audi A4
Hi recently bought an a4 2.0 petrol which has started to miss fire bringing on the engine light any clues to what i need i use to have a lot of old cars where i would change the plugs and leads but the leads look a lot diffrent can i still do this ???????? also it seems to use a lot of oil ?????
The four-cylinder Audis are known to have issues sometimes with the coil packs. Can you have your car's ECU scanned for fault codes? You may have a stored code even if the check engine light isn't on. If you have no codes, I'd look at changing the plugs at the very least, and make sure they're gapped to factory spec. Then get some Seafoam at the parts store and do the vacuum system with it - see if that helps, and if not, post back up and we'll take it from there.

That same thing happened in my 01 a6 and it was very pricy! if i was you i would stop driving it immediately! i made that mistake and cost me $6432! i had to replace things in my engine and it fried bothe o2 sensors and both cats but especially if the light starts flashing thats bad news for you but i would reccomend taking it to a shop. your call

I just purchased a 98 Audi A4 1.8T. I was checking the spark plugs and noticed that the wires and the spark plugs had some oil on them. Im assuming this is the gasket as you said. Could you post that link for me. Also i checked the oil and it seems whoever did it overfilled the oil (Could this be the cause as well?) In any case i am going to drain some oil, as too much is bad.
