J Plate Audi 80 Coupe not revving

    Its my mum in laws car in Kent and I am in Brum so bear with me on this one. I think its the 2.3 auto.
    She has just taken the car for its MOT but its failed as it won't rev above 2500rpm. I won't be near it to have a look until sometime next week but can anyone give me a few pointers?
    She is old and only poodles about it in so not sure how long its been like it. Bit peed off at the garage as they are saying it needs a new engine and not really bothering to have a look at the cause.
    Or if anyone is near Borough Green TN15 area and could take a look in the next few days for some beer money?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have seen and sorted this out now. I have the full story and the mechanic at the small local garage she took it too decided it wouldn't pass the MOT due to the engine noise and he reckoned the big ends had gone. I fired it up and it has a slight tappet rattle, and guess what, it stopped when the engine warmed up a bit.
    Booked it for its MOT at Tonbridge Audi and it failed on rear o/s brake calliper not working, rear fog light tell tale not working and also a split steering gaiter.
    Callipers have been sourced and are being done by the lovely Chris with the bright orange S4 at Tyreweb Sittingbourne hopefully next weekend, steering gaiter can be done by Audi as its a right pain to get too, just need to get a replacement switch for the front fogs and we will have kept another classic on the road.
