Long time lurker, first time post.
Car is a 2002 A4 1.8T (163)
Upon starting up today, my EPC light and Engine Management light are both on. Tried to drive the car forwards and it has very little in the way of power.
I recently had the car serviced at Russell Automotive Centre (Russell Automotive Centre - The Audi, VW, Seat, Skoda and Bentley specialist) and have also changed all four coil packs so I know it's not those at fault.
Upon doing a search, everything seems to point to a 'crank sensor' - which as far as I can see, is somewhere between £50 and £130 (depending on who you ask).
I'm happy to get this done but my trouble is actually getting the car to a garage, as I'm not sure if I can even drive it like it is at the moment - it seems to be in 'limp' mode.
I'm based in South London - between Clapham and Wandsworth Commons.
A) Does anyone know a decent Audi mobile mechanic (I've searched long and hard on the web and on the forums but with little joy)
B) Is it ok to drive the car to get it to a garage - even when in limp mode like this? (I'm presuming no)
Does anyone who's handy with Audi's live in my vicinity, or know someone who is - will happily pay.
Any help greatly appreciated,
