re: oxygen sensor...
<<and he found that the oxygen sensor was
burned out (only 73,000 miles).>>
Audi service interval is supposed to be about 60,000 miles for the oxygen
<<<Naturally the S4 uses a unique part. ("Turn around, bend over, here
it comes....") $150 for the sensor! It looks a lot longer than the usual
Bosch 3-wire ones I've seen.>>>
It is a longer harness, but the same sensor. You can purchase a generic
version without the wiring harness for somewhere around $60 or $70; try
german parts and restoration or imparts. You will have to cut and splice on
your existing wiring harness.
<<<Why don't engineers use standard parts when designing this stuff?
Why do they have the chutspah to assume that *their* solution is
so unique that it demands unique parts? Aaargh!Doug Haley
Good point; however, it's probably the same cost for them to get x hundred
thousand supplies with longer wires as with standard wires.
Hope this helps, Chris Miller, Windham NH
