Sorry for the post here, but think the type 44 gets a tad more traffic!

Had bought, rehabbed and sold ($1k in parts) a clean 96 A6 Avant in the
fall. Was sold locally to a guy I know...

He just called and they're having a intermittent start issue. Occasionally
car won't start (when hot), but if allowed to sit will start after a while.
Does crank, but doesn't start. Tonight they had to let it sit for 45 minutes
before it would fire.

Going to run VAG Com tomorrow morning to and see if that shows any codes...

don't know if it's fuel or ignition related, hopefully able to narrow it
down in the morning once he gets here!

Any BTDT's? Going to surf around and see what I can find, but figured I'd
ask around first.
