Well, my audi failed the smog check I guess I have low compression in the
4th and 5th cylinders that is xcausing it to emit too much co2 and
something else. They said the fuel mixture is too rich. This happened
last year and they said it was just out of adjustment. I went to a
mechanic I trusted(a different one had messed it up) who adjusted it and
Unfortunately after last years smog check I had a leaking head gasket
replaced by the same mechanic who screwed the fuel mix up previously (I
was obviously disoriented or possibbly brain dead when I brought it to
him!!!so stupid!!!!!!!!) I could tell it was not running smoothly when I
got it back.
Anyway this year I took it back to the trustworthy mechanic and they were
able to adjust it somewhat but said that the compression was low, as I
said before and that it was not simply an adjustment problem. I would
have them do the work but they dont do valve work on Audi's and I won't
take it back to the mechanic from hell. Does anyone know what is wrong
with this car--do not, i repeat, DO NOT, TELL ME I NEED A NEW CATALYTIC
CONVERTER, cause I will cry.
The test readings were fine at the RPM of 2500 but the car registered
more than twice the maximum allowable "HC PPM" and more that 3 times the
maximum allowed CO2 at idle speed.
I hope this makes sense, probable not but give me you best shot of advice
