Please Please Please Help - before i take a sledge hammer to my Audi
hey yall ........................
new member her and first time poster .
first off , excellent site , loads of info and help .
heres my prob :
1994 - 2.0 petrol Audi 80 - 5 door ,dark green, 170.000 miles . very well looked after and serviced .
i have had no problems with this car until today .
about 6 weeks ago i parked the car on the driveway and havnt used her since , but today i went to start her and as expected the battery was flat . first off i tried jump starting , but had no luck , i then charged the battery for a few hours and tried again , no luck . so i went and got a new battery and fitted it and tried - no luck again . after a look around the engine i saw the the "Y" shaped air breather pipe had split in 2 places, so i went and got another 1 of those ( went to the scrap yard as no local partds dealers had any , and 8 of the 10 audi 80s in the scrap yard all had the same split in the y shaped air breather pipe !!)
the air breather pipe (i think thats the correct name for it) is located to the right of the air filter box and has 3 holes in it , 1 goes to the engine 2 goes to the air filter box and 3 goes to another pipe.
after trying everything it still will not start !!!! please help .
heres what i have done ,
changer air breather pipe
put in £15 of petrol (as it ran out just before i parked it up)
topped up with oil / water etc
checked the fuel pump relay fuse , and tried a new one just incase
checked the fuel pump (15amp) fuse
the car will start if i pour petrol directly into the carb,and ticks over but dies after about 10 secs.
ive been told it could be the fuel pump , as it may have seized bein sat in the very hot weather for 6 weeks .
my question is ..... where is the fuel pump and fuel filter , and is it very difficult to replace / fit them ?
please help , ive spent the last 10 hours trying to sort this out but to no avail ! - any engine pics would be great as i have very little experience in working with audis
