    I have an a4 Quattro 2.8L that when it is cold and I try to start it, it will crank for a while but not turn over. I then turn the key to the off position and try to start it again and it turns right over no problem. Any Ideas?

    You say it will "crank" but not "turn over"?

    Those mean the same thing to me?

    I read it the same way aragorn did.

    To crank an engine is to turn it over in my little world.

    I guess you mean that you hear the starter going but it is not engaging with the flywheel thus not turning over the motor?

    If I am correct with the above, then Ian52 is correct, solenoid is fooked.
