High pressure hydraulics
My '90 90Q20V has come down with the following brake/steering
1. Turning the wheel causes a groaning sound from the engine area
(presume the pump). Wheels turn fine of course, noise
worsens after high revs (6000+). This has been nagging me for a
couple of months, and I've been putting it off.......
2. New one! Brake power assist fades after 1-2 seconds of pedal
application. Braking can be restored by pressing harder, or by
letting off the pedal for a few seconds, but not by pumping the
brakes. No extra sound from pump accompanies the assist fade.
3. The brake warning light stays on a long time (perhaps
minutes) at start-up, but never comes on during driving.
I've had so many Audi's and been through so many pumps, I'm
hoping this is all that's needed. Easy, semi-expensive fix. But
wait, isn't that a funny looking, thinner pump in the 90q20V?
I'm asking q-listers in the know: Is it prolly just the
pump, or should I investigate the brake assist valve and the
