5KCSTQ (1987): whats wrong with my car?
I just completed a 2300mile drive in my Audi and it ran realtively well -
averaged about 29mpg at about 77mph (with a bike on the roof).
As of late, though, my car is dempstrating a strange behaviour - as foollows:

around the car this weekend so any help would be appreciated. I apologize if
this is in the archives pr has recently been discussed - I'm about 20 digests
behind as I've bben on the road and I don't have web access yet.
Thanks again for your time.
