    My 2000 Audi A6 2.8L is randomely missfiring on cylinders 1-3. I recently had a timing belt, water pump, thermostat, serpentine belt and cabin filter put in... what could it be? out of time perhaps? My engine is very sluggish and It smells of oil and plastic @ times. I also feel heat on the drivers side underneath the steering wheel as if the heat is on? Please help me

Missing on 1 and 3 yes it's electrical mate, if it was a tooth out on the timing belt it would be backfiring on exhaust or coughing back on the intake or lack of power but not missing on just 1 and 3
your leads may have been damaged in the repair process as they are just carbon nowdays and one squeeze will stuff em... asumming this is not a V6 engine.. but a straight line config.

Start by checking the spark plugs. Are they pitted? Out of gap? Replace spark plugs, spark plug wires, rotor button and distributor cap.

Check engine light is on and it reads Misfire on #2 cylinder. Also oxygen sensor bank2 sensor 1 and Bank 1 sensor 3 behind the converter. Engine running rough.


the engine miss fire can cause the other codes to set. you need to repair the miss fire and clear all codes after the miss is repaired then see if the 02 sensor codes return. the miss fire is probably a bad spark plug wire a good tune-up should take care of it ........HAVE A GREAT DAY

Engine miss fire


Engine misfires can be caused by a variety of anomalies.

Check the computer with an OBD-II Scanner. I just got one from Walmart for $98 plus tax, and it has English descriptions of codes that it reads.

It will tell you which cylinder(s) are missing and if you have any sensors that have issues or problems.

This is an invaluable tool for fixing engine misfires. Good luck to you.
