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.
