    Hey audi-sport members.

    I have an 87 5000s that I recently aquired from a lady for 300 dollars. Its got some issues..

    The car has been sitting for a few years and everything associated w/ fuel is all gummed up. The fuel pump wont turn is one thing.I took the pump out of the tank and hooked it to 12v. You can hear the motor inside wanting to turn..it makes like a clicking sound. The tank has 1/2" of 2 year old fuel in it. Man old gas reeks!

    Im pretty motivated to get it running again..I sprayed some starting fluid in the intake and it kicked over. Interior is in perfect condition, as is the body. Auto tranny, though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    Sorry for the long post and awesome site guys.

    Welcome to gang 875000s sounds like you are going to be busy for the next few weeks fixing her up .....i would just replace the pump as it will probably be goosed

    Drain the tank as it will be full of rust and **** off of the sides

    Yeah, Im in the process of looking for a pump now. Maybe I can find one from a member here...Ill post in the cIassifieds.

    I did clean the tank. Actually had to drop it because theres no drain.
    I had planned on dropping it anyway just for the reason you stated.

    Ill try to get up a few pics this week.
