    My car is still hard starting after injector recall and also i have a very bad burning rubber/or something rich smell from the car.
    But i have no coolant loss or milky oil so not a head gasket so what could this smell be coming from ?

    This problems going on way too long now

    Any help or advice appreciated people

    Not sure tbh, but maybe starter motor, maybe the internals are hetaing up too much, I've removed one & it smelt a bit after usage & this was weak.

    cheers for your reply NHN , my car is still doing this so i will either go to a specialist to have a look or i will go back to audi AGAIN, and kick up some sort of fuss as this is a joke now. What i didnt mention from above as that its still shaking violently on idle and that needs sorting. None of this happened until injector recall or Cambelt change (done at same time) so basicly Audi have Broken a perfectly good running car at the time!

    The cambelt is made of a rubber, which could make sense - but generally they're either working fine or have blown your engine up, you don't hear of many problems in between the two.
