Hi all, name is Dan, and live in Perth, Australia. I am very keen to gather some ideas/suggestions from you guys on this issue ...
I am completely baffled by this problem - has had big service with most of ignition system replaced (not the starter motor), and still, it starts on the 2-3rd attempt;
just put in a much gruntier battery, but problem still persists;
i do know that the fuel sender is knackered - it reads fine until just under 1/2 tank - then it does weird stuff, under reads etc (i've just learned to put up with it) -
BUT, she warm starts with no problems at all!!!
what are the main differences between cold and warms starts? - what data does the ECU rely on during a cold start, vs a warm start??
this isn't inhibiting my enjoyment of the car (I absolutely love the car), but it would be nice to have this issue sorted
i would be very appreciative of any ideas/suggestions ... before i take her to the local audi dealer
