Why won't my car start


Asked by Feb 28, 2016 at 07:58 PM about the 1999 Audi A6 4 Dr 2.8 quattro AWD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed all vaccume lines, checked all sensors & changed spark plugs. (Audi high heat) It turns over sputters a bit, but won't stay running. I can smell the fuel, when I removed plugs the were wet. So its getting fuel. I held plugs to the block & I got spark. What am I missing ??

Check engine light on?




The only error codes I get are for emissions. . they don't have anything to do with my problem!


sounds like you might have plug wires crossed or vacuum lines wrong


the first error I got was vacuum pressure . . I replaced them and the code didn't reappear. . as for the plug wires I assure you there not crossed. It had the original plugs in it when I changed them. . . its the same result . . turns over but won't start!
