the beast is back and the beauty
Notice I've been quiet :). I picked up my car on Sat, not
last Sat as planned because it wasn't ready. What I did
pick up though was a drop dead gorgeous BMW K75s motorcycle,
so I've been fawning over that lately. Good thing too, because
my $^%*# Audi is still not running right. I *think* it's
because the O2 sensor was dead and my mechanic tweaked the
mixture around it until I can pick one up. But the car is running
rich, and this morning it wouldn't start until I pulled all the
plugs, cleaned them, and stood on the gas for about 5 minutes.
RPMs slowly crawled up to normal then it was OK. In fairness,
I think I found a loose connector so that might have been it.
I still have a nagging problem with this 84 4000sq. Going around
a turn and powering through it, you should have steady power
all along right? Well, no. I feel a noticable power loss going
into the turn (like a 90 turn into a parking lot) and an increase
when I straighten out. What the heck could it be? I'd suspect
CVJs but it's very quiet and makes no noise at all.
If I can get the damn thing to run right for once in its life you
might see me at Watkins Glen in a few months. If not, bring
marshmallows to the 1st annual quattro car roast :|
