New owner of a A6, hope its worth it!
Hello everyone... (or anyone):laugh:
I live in South Africa and love Audis/VWs. Now recently got my hands on a A6 2.5TDI Quattro 6sp Man MY1998 , which is very kinda hard to find info on as it seems. I think its from Scotland and the manual had Audi Dundee all over it.
Anyways, bought the car with a faulty CCD which btw wasn't even in the car (had to collect it from the previous owner, which also didnt have the car long). I did bit of research on the CCD box he claims to came out of the car and i doubt it belongs to this car.
If anyone has anyway of checking it against my VIN, it would be appreciated! (PM me for details please)
Secondly. I love this site with all the info and challenges you guys (and girls) do. Iam busy fiddling with the Engine as there is also a problem (not revving pass 3500rpm in gear, 4000rpm neutral) First problem i faced was LOADS of smoke during stops in traffic. People started backing up as soon as i stopped (hiding of embarrassment in my own cloud of smoke). Found this site with wonderful info, just to find out about a blocked oil mist separator I just removed the oil cap seal as a quick fix atm, still must replace it. No smoking what so ever!!! Wow what a pleasure to see cars next to me at the lights again :)
Another problem i faced when parked on a slope nose up, it refuses to start. Also read about it here that it is air/fuel returning to the tank and needs to be bled to start. Found leaking fuel return pipes on the injectors. Hopefully that fixes it, still to check :P Next is the thermostat as is seems the car is not warming up fast enough... Will update as i go along. Btw i have vag, no codes.
I know alot of this problems has been disgusted in previous posts, i do loads of reading way in the early mornings to get remedies for problems. I just want to say to everyone it is very much appreciated!
