Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Audi A4 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 78000 miles
After I park my car for a long time, mainly at work for 8 or 9 hours in the hot sun, it is somewhat hard to start. It may take 2-3 seconds of cranking to start but right when it does start it is perfectly fine. And if I shut it off right after I get it started, it turns over immediately when re-started. It is turbocharged and I always allow it to cool down properly after driving so I dont think that can have anything to do with it. Why is this? And what can be checked or fixed?
Just see if it impacts the car whether it is connected and then disconnect. You could try to use a shop vac and measure resistance values but I don't know of a table to compare it to. Have you checked the usual tune up routine lately (plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, etc.)
