new member/owner needs help and advice
Hi people ive just bought an 2002 s3 225. When i went to view the car it all seemed perfect it was in excellent conditon, full audi history loads and loads of reciepts for various new parts so like you would i bought it! After driving it home about 100miles i pull on to my drive and the engine management light comes on..so i ring the guy i bought it from and he gives me some story about the cam sensor has only just been replaced ut it wasnt a genuine audi part so he suspected it was that at fault again. I decided to have the car plugged in before ordering a new sensor and it came up with 2 faults...p1340 and p0012 the first is the cam/crank position sensor as he said but the second is camshaft timing advance (bank 1) so we decided to ring bosch to check what the problem actually was and they've come back and said that its something to do with the cam chain tensioner or the actually chain that runs the variable valve timing on this engine that is worn and causing the engine to run slightly outside its tolorances therefore triggering the management light. Does anyone know how to rectify this fault and roughly how much its going to cost me??
thanks alot for reading
