2001Audi a4

Asked by Feb 18, 2016 at 01:39 PM about the 2001 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Audi was stalling a lot and after a while
of waiting it would start again .the rpm was
higher than usual. One cold morning it
wouldn't start so I jumpstarted it two days
later wouldn't start again but this time
wouldn't even crank over even when I
replaced battery???any ideas could the timing
belt have gone and therefore killed my
engine?

Hello! I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble. Audi cars while German are very prone to breakdown once they reach a certain age. They can be expensive to fix and without going to the dealership (very expensive), a regular shop will have you running back and forth to the bank while they try to pinpoint the problem. How many miles are on the car? When was the timing belt last replaced? Are there any fluids leaking underneath the engine compartment. When it was stalling, were you driving at normal speeds? Accelerating, or when you were attempting to start it? Don't panic. The reason I am asking so many clarifications is that it could be a number of issues, some very small, so we wouldn't want to jump straight to the belt being broken because as you are aware, once this occurs it can be a very expensive repair. I will keep an eye on your thread and reply to your answer. Best of luck!
