1987 5kcdq acting very strange
Fellow Audi fanatics,
about a week ago, my Audi started acting very strange. I noticed that the
gas consumption increased greatly, a trip that uses about 2.0l of fuel now
uses about 3.2-3.5l. When I'm on the highway and reach about 1.2 bar boost
pressure, the car hesitates and a cloud of black smoke comes out of the
tailpipe. When the car is idling I no longer hear the famous Audi buzzing
Yesterday I started checking the car, I had it idling in the driveway and I
removed the oil cap from the valve cover and the engine did not stall (it is
the MC engine with the QLCC chip in it).
Today I will remove the air box and check the air filter and the plunger on
the fuel distributer.
I am completely baffled, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Stefan Bendevis, Audiman1@msn.com
