    rough running v8

    If you'd put diesel in it, it would have white smoke billowing out the back. Coil packs are quite common for going, I may be wrong but I thing there was an Audi recall for S4 coil packs.

    rough running v8

    Greeny is right there is a coil pack recall on that year don't assume because of the age it's been done , my 52 plate hadn't done ! Might be your problem and better yet its a freebie from Audi
    I bought a convertable in the wettest country in the world who says Scotsmen dont have a sense of humour !

    Buy a coil pack (always good to have a spare) and swap them out one by one and see if she runs better or try taking one off at a time and see if the engine note changes if it dose not then you have a bum coil pack.
