RE: Carb cleaner for vac. leak
The best way I've heard to find a vacuum leak is to use carb cleaner,
but you gotta buy the non-flammable type. If there is a leak, it will
get sucked into to the engine and cause slight stumbling. Its the safest
way I know, especially compared to propane(BOOOOM!).
Also, I am pretty sure that in the older Audis (1980's), when you take
off the oil filler cap, the idle should drop for a while by about 200 -
300 rpm. It shouldnt stall on you.
I would like to thank Pat Martin and everyone else for the help. Just
to let you guys know, at first with a K&N filter, there was no
difference. Just this weekend I went down to Minneapolis, I swear, that
car was untouchable on the highway. At half throttle, the cars going
near 145 kph. I was racing an Eagle talon, it was pretty funny. I had
the car at about 160 with still lots of punch left. Best drive of my
84 4000S (AUDRE the AUDI)w. K&N and the cat cut off.
