Re: Ahhh! My 4kq Died (Update)

	I went out and it started but wouldn't idle.  So I look around
with my Trust Maglight and found that the vacuum connector under the
massive air hose that goes to Throttle Body is loose.  Plug it in and it
idles.  Very low but thats a different problem.  (just adjustment maybe?) 
	Anyhow, heres my question.  Was that my problem.  If so why
wouldn't it run when it was warm.  Is a motor more susceptible to a vacuum
problem when warm than cold because it runs richer when Cold???   If I
found my problem then great but I fear it may be more complicated.  
	Also, I think it was Steve that said that with ignition on I
should have power to the connector that goes to Full Throttle switch.  My
Multi-Meter registers no power from any of the three pins on the connector
when the car is on.  Grounded lead to battery post.  Is this a problem or
when motor is cold does this circuit get bypassed completely???
	Thanks everyone.  Sorry I freaked so bad.  It's just been one
thing after another lately and I have to have transportation ya know. :-)
Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't drive an Audi then.  Nahhhh.
