Re: ur-quattro misfire?
I had pretty much the same experience with my quattro and went through half
the electrics trying to eliminate the problem. In a post to the list you
suggested that the problem was with my crankshaft oil seal.
It turned out to be nothing more than a build up of dirt in the fuel
metering system. I found that the problem could be resolved by either
putting in buckets of cheap fuel line cleaner like Redex or just a tin of
some superior brand. The symptoms have returned once or twice in the last
few months and the cure has been the same: Let the fuel get down to a
gallon or two and then pour in the cleaner.
You could give it a try.
