    Is this a big Job

    So before this Car i have a B5 Bi Turbo, which i blew up and was able to replace the Turbos by myself, so i am not shy of a big job, and i coped well. But now i have picked up a 4.2 V8 Beast that has issues, and again am no shy of getting my hands dirty.

    My question is is this a bigger job than the turbo replacement on my B5?

    The Issue with this S4 B6 is it will run for 15 mins, then it dies, i have the Report, naturally a garage quoted me stupid money.

    Can someone tell me what is the issu, what it entails, and will i be able to do it? , many thanks in advance

    You need to decipher those fault codes, and then establish what is wrong with it.

    Whether it is a "bigger" job than turbo replacement on a B5 is hugely subjective, least of all dependent on your interpretation of "bigger"...

    yeah it was an engine out on the B5 i have :-)

    as for the question on how the B6 runs, it seems to run ok for that 15 mins, i am wondering if its the tensioners?

    Crankshaft sensor? I've heard of these failing when they get hot and work again when cold. We currently have this on a Transit at work and my dad had it on an older Saab, Vauxhalls suffer too.

    0:04 suggests your S4 has eaten a dog.







    ... sorry I'm useless when it comes to problem solving.

    Multiple missfires indicates that the chains are stretched or the tensioners are gone. How does it sounds when starting from cold ? It's a engine out job to do the tensioners in the s4 + parts are not cheap either !
