Just recently purchased a 2001 A4 B6 1.8T Sport (AEB - 150bhp)
Car has sat for roughly a year and half off the road so had a few problems to start off with (ABS light/Airbag light/EML/Traction control)
I have fixed all those problems, but looking into the history in July 2011 the engine suffered the dreaded oil pump problem.. All replaced and timing chain and belt etc.
The car has a rough idle and seems to have lack of power, i ran a VCD scan on it bringing up fault code:
17939/P1531/005425 - Camshaft Timing Adjustment: Open Circuit
Along with a missfire in cylinder 3
This weekend i am going to service the car, replace any dozed looking hoses etc
Will test the wiring to the Camshaft sensor with it noting being open wether its connected or not
The reason i put up the question is that there could be numerous avenues that connect to this and if anyone else had this problem?
I have worked on golf cupra turbo engines but not the audi b6 engine
Any advice/help would be great
