List-friends, my 1990-200 has started to die when it's a) fully warmed
up, then b) sits for a few minutes and c) is re-started.
In this scenario, when I re-start it, the darn thing dies every time
I let the RPM's drop....but only for about the first 2 or 3 minutes of
driving. After that, it's fine and will idle OK. Of course, I suspect my
friend and ours, the much-fabled Idle Control Valve.
I have tried "The Book of Bentley, Vol. #1" and it does not give any
test procedures for that stupid valve which don't require three
special Audi tools and a personal Valkeryie (sp) to hold them
while you work. Rats.
I have pulled the idle valve, sprayed the whee out of it with WD-40,
looked for carbon buildup (none visible) and re-installed it. No
change. At least it's ONE thing you can reach on this engine with
Any comments, suggestions...(and I say that with great trepidation,
knowing this group) or help?
