Need a car ASAP!
A friend is selling he's Audi A4 98' 2.8 v6 and
has 200000 miles on it and he ask 1200 for it
but I don't know if it's a good price for it
because of the miles I understand "never
judge a book by its cover" but I dthink my
know how is the life spam on the timing
chain and belt or if it's going to need more
money later to repair I just needed to last at
least a year the check engine light is one
because of the O2 sensor he said I don't
know much about cars and all and don't
know what to do he said He just went
through and rebuild the whole car. spent
$1,000 in just parts. It has new tires new
brakes new rotors new clutch new belt new
Power stearing pump new wheel bearings
new seats new iridium Spark plugs k & n air
filter cabin air filter new wiper blades. Please
any help is good help.
I never jump into a car without researching it but if you need it ASAP, have your mechanic look it over before over buy it. He can tell you the good and the bad and the price to get it running properly. Might be more than you think.
The check engine light may be on because of the K&N Air Filter System. I'm not a big fan of these cold air intake systems because the oil used in the filter tends to contaminate the mass airflow sensor. In addition there may not be a provision for the intake air temperature sensor. If this is the case and it's just left unplugged, the check engine light will remain on. HTH. - Jim
If if does not pass smog I would not buy it for $200.
An old Audi?!! hahahaha- sure, buy it if you want a $1200 bird bath in your front yard- it won't be goin' anywhere, just leave the windows rolled down-
