96 audi 2.8 won't start. No spark

1 Answer


air fuel spark...one of these is not right...be kind and try to figure out which...air...make sure the air filter flows...the PCV elbow should rattle...make sure there is fuel pressure...you could pull a plug and examine the condition...see if it's wet or encrusted...check the spark perhaps with a phillips screwdriver on the end where you plug in the sparkplug~
