V8 Starting Woes

 -=> Quoting Tshib <=-

 Ts> A year ago, my 1990 V8 had trouble starting in the Summer.  On hot
 Ts> days, I had trouble starting the car after parking it in the sun.  It
 Ts> did not happen often, but was very annonying.  The dealer diagnozed (I
 Ts> do not remember the diagnosis) and fixed the problem, including an very
 Ts> expensive distributor replacement.  The car started just fine until
 Ts> recently.  It is very hot again and the problem seems to have gotten
 Ts> worse.  I now have trouble starting the car 1 out of 2 times if parked
 Ts> in the sun.  Has anyone had the same problem? I will take it to the
 Ts> dealer this week, but would appreciate any heads up! Thanks!!!

     A friend of mine had the exact same problem with his '90
     V8Q.  The problem was the crank position sensor (maybe
     officially referred to as flywheel position sensor?).
     It took Audi over 3 weeks to get the part.
