My (now former) daily-driver, '96 Audi A4 quattro, 2.8, 12-valve, 140k mi, just slipped some teeth on the timing belt resulting in cylinder/valve contact - looking at $4,500 for all the things that are wrong, including a fuel sender sensor for about $500 of that (quote from a "high-end" euro shop) - I thought the car was worth that BEFORE all of this mess - can't see spending that kind of cash
most non-audi places tell me they don't have the specialized tools for an Audi, and turn me away.
I'm actually preparing to embark on head gasket replacement and several other things on my '94 Lincoln Mk8 - HERE'S THE QUESTION - am I insane for thinking I should keep the Audi and take a stab at it myself?
Maybe I'll get my hands on a shop manual and see what they say about the tools required.
Thanks, take care
