Leaking Hydro fluid and Power drain

Discussion in 'General Technical / How To' started by imported_acklac7, Nov 1, 2004.

  1. Had a few questions about my 1987 Audi Quattro 5000 turbo...First off something is draining the power. It has been to the shop a number of times and they can't quite figure out what is wrong. I was told it could be the cd player I installed, however I turned the player off and there is still a drain on the power. Secondly it is leaking hydraulic fluid..bad. Are there any potential problem areas i.e. gaskets, hoses etc. that have been known to leak? I've never worked on a foreign car before and I really could use some help. Also where can you purchase a factory shop manual? Thanks for your help

    In the states you should buy a Bentley manual. try disconnecting the cd player completely. Other drain items could be the alarm/immobiliser. Any older car will develop leaks, and on Audi's it's almost always somewhere on the power steering.
