I have a 1991 Quattro Coupe, with the 5 cyl/20 valve engine.
My problem is that if I leave the car idle for a few days,
and then try to start it, it *sometimes* refuses to turn over.
This particually happens if the weather is not too hot
(like 60 degrees or so). At first, this would only happen
once or twice a year. Now it seems to be happening much more
frequently (like this past Monday, after not driving it
for Sat/Sun). The dealer looked into it, but could not
re-produce the problem, as it ran fine during the week.
Also, once started (after about 10-15 minutes of cranking),
it runs extremly rough, especially if I give it any gas.
Thanks for any input.
