To fellow listers with 200tq20v cars:

The list of technical service bulletins for the 200q20v is very lengthy.
Several problems I am currently dealing with are listed there.
== engine oil seals-leakage after replacement
== bushing replacement
== strut replacement
== poor mileage
== crankshaft oil seal-leakage after replacement

Have any of you purchased a subscription to Alldata to utilize the service
info?  Or is this all pretty much common knowledge now that our 1991
200q20v is 12 years old?

I just acquired my 200 last month and am wondering how to best deal with
the currently existing maintenance needs.  It has the above problems and is
bucking on deceleration in spite of a just replace O2 sensor. ???  It
appears the PO let a few things slide.  My service provider list includes
Carousel Audi here in Minneapolis who has been maintaining my 100 quattro.
I also have heard of Anderson Motorsport, but I just want to get the 200
healthy again, not soup it up.  Should I start with a "tune-up" done by a
professional Audi certified mechanic?   Jim Benoit, who writes periodically
for the Audi Car Club, is an Audi certified mechanic with Carousel.  I'm
hoping I can make him a trusted friend and get his professional advice on
how to keep my maintenance costs somewhat lower, rather  than just telling
the shop to  fix it and I will just suffer the cost.

Thanks in advance for any pointers and advice.
