Re: Help (88 5k)

Can someone more 5k knowledgable help this guy out please?

I didn't think you *could* change the timing on these....

> You seem to know a lot your Audi. At least more than my mechanic. I have problem with my 88 5000. The car valves ping under load 2nd gear or higher. Especially after a period of idling time. My mechanic tested the timing and said it was advanced 45 degrees. The car ran perfect and powerful but the knocking. He adjusted the timing to 7 degree advanced and made the car run worst (less powerful)and knocking still. I use 10w30 oil and high octane. I ran out of solution for this car. In addition, my mechanic replaced the lifters of this car in the road to resolve the problem but the car is still knocking.
> Any help is appreciated.....
