Ok, I did a fuel pressure test. Not exactly by the book - I used the test port on the lower half of the fuel distributor.

5.5 bar when the engine is running and
3.5 bar after 30 mins.
3.9 bar after 3 hours (it was a warm day)
3.0 bar after 24 hours

A great result and within guidelines. I think...

I am ready to give the fuel system a clean bill of health - I will repeat the differential pressure regulator voltage check which had some odd results in the last post.

I will also adjust the air flap mixture setting, with Vagcom running live data -> to get the smoothest idle. I may swap back my air flap to my old one which has not been adjusted.

Really, after that it is back to the ignition system and the associated sensors that the ECU uses.

...and it may be worth considering major failures like piston rings, leaking valves etc. The engine is emmiting a lot of dark grey sooty smoke - leaving deposits on the wheelie bin behind it. I believed it to be incorrect mixture burning that gave this but maybe something else.

I have done a number of compression tests with varying results ->Perhaps soot buildup is giving more favourable results at the moment. The plugs a get sooty but not oily FWIW.

I am looking for checks/tests to assess general engine health - any tips on the ACE or similar engine?

1991 Audi 80 2.0E saloon in tornado red with just over 60000 miles. 2 previous owners. The car has always been garaged and has a completely documented service history with all MOTs. The car has just been serviced and has 12 months MOT. The car was one of the last B3 Audi 80 versions to come off the production line and was fitted from new with the following optional extras: Manual sunroof, rear spoiler, Aero design alloy wheels, rear electric windows and original Blaupunkt stereo radio cassette player. There is also a CAT 2 Sterling Excel immobiliser fitted. There are two sets of keys.

Any inspection is welcome. This was one of the first cars to have a completely galvanized bodyshell and is in outstanding condition for its year. It is unusual to find a car like this with such a low mileage. A future classic car!

ONLINE: for requesting a callback - Call Request Form

Why are phone quotes best?
We prefer you to call us because we get a better feel for you when we speak and you can explain things that a restrictive online form just can't handle (especially if there are mods). We also prefer personal service and relationship. It helps us to speak to you at a time that's convenient if you're instigating the call too - we'd hate to miss you when we call you back (which happens more often than you'd think and more than we'd like).

Well the engine is knackered no compression on four pots. What do I do now, scrap it, replace the engine or whip the heads off. What would you do? Sniff
Replaced the blown bulb in the computer display, everything works fine but am still getting the number "61" on the display. Any suggestions?

Yeah, of all the coupes I've owned I miss that body the most. It was ony a 2.0 16v so obviously not my favourite engine (I've had every other variant apart from the 2.8 V6 quattro), some to fix and sell on, some to break. Previous owner of that red car was a body shop bloke in Glasgow so he'd resprayed it and lowered it. It turned heads all the time. I look at my 2.3 20v quattro now, and it just doesn't have the same "ooooh" factor. I think I need to lower it and have at least parts of it repainted (bumpers, bonnet and spoiler).
I always liked the turquoise coupes too. Was it Kingfisher blue officially?

found some pics earlier of the old coupe,

I just wanted to highlight a product in the Chris Knott range that will benefit some members when buying a new or nearly new car.

Chris Knott GAP Cover is important if you'd like to replace your car with another one at the original value following a total loss claim. Highly competitive, this protection is likely to be vastly cheaper than your car dealer's equivalent offering.

What is Chris Knott GAP cover?
You may have heard of Finance GAP or Return To Invoice (RTI) GAP but Chris Knott's GAP is a combination of the best of both those worlds...

In the event of a total loss, your motor insurer will only pay you the market value of your vehicle at the time of the loss. However, you may have outstanding finance owing on the vehicle which is greater than that market value. In any case you'll get back less than you paid for, or owe, on the vehicle.

This insurance covers you for 3 years and pays you the difference between your motor insurer's payout and the outstanding finance amount OR the net purchase invoice price (WHICHEVER IS GREATER) so you can buy another car for the original value.

Low cost, high value
Cover starts at just 117.85 for 3 year's cover - that's about 39 per year for great peace of mind.

Even a 50,000 vehicle only costs 216.22!

Get a quote
See how affordable Chris Knott GAP Cover could be for you at or call us on 0800 917 2274.


PS. Cover must be arranged within the first 90 days of ownership but is available for all vehicles less than 8 years old with less than 80,000 miles on the clock.

GAP Testimonials

"I've been with Chris Knott for quite a few years including both the XE and the previous XF, plus my other runabouts. Also insured modified cars with them in the past with no hassle. Got my GAP insurance through CKI as it was a lot cheaper than Jaguar's own quote and others, too. They've always been the best for service, speed and price..." Pete McK, JagInfo

"Just a quick one, covered my ST earlier with Chris Knott's GAP took me 5 minutes for a quote online and about 10 minutes on the phone to finalise. The lady I spoke to was great and managed to answer everything I asked..." titchytom86, FiestaST OC
CK - now even more members able to save


Further to my post last month about our DashCam Prize Draw (which is still running), here's another great incentive for you to call us for a quote when your car insurance is due...

What are you waiting for? Call Chris Knott free on 0800 917 2274 and mention this forum to access our special car club/enthusiast's facility.

Recent feedback from happy some Chris Knott clients - all Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK members this time as it happens:

"Well done CKI. I got my car insurance renewal yesterday. I then did a few online comparisons and CKI were the cheapest by 36 without even needing to call them to haggle. That's 3 years in a row CKI have been the cheapest without even needing to ring them. Car Insurance Renewal done and dusted with no fuss for another 12 months!" Alan Lathwell, Alfa Romeo OC

Thank for any help
I have an Audi A6 C6 4F (2007) i noticed some moisture on inside windows so decided to put my Dehumidifire to dry it out left it for a few hours as it no that big opened car and noticed no lights came on also dash pressed light buttons nothing untill i put key in ignition then all was fine no problem since just interested in any ideas anyne has to why
After months of hassle I fitted the new fuel gauge, it differs from the original by not having the fixing screws titted. Instead, you just have the threads. Fitted it and put everything back together, turned on the ignition and it didn't budge a millimeter. On the computer, I had a fault number 61, anybody know what this is telling me? Probably the gauge is not working!
Anybody used these??

Eine Trne schlpfte langsam aus den Augen, Victoria schloss die Augen. Auerhalb der Welt wird sofort ruhig, ich starrte sie an, ein Herz auch langsam sinken. "Das ... nach dir ..." fragte ich sehr sorgfltig. "Nein, spter ist diese Person fr mich tot!" Vivian ffnete seine Augen und kehrte vor dem Blick in die Klte zurck. Sie sagte nie etwas, stand auf und verlie mein Schlafzimmer. Ich hrte, wie ihre Tr leicht zog und loslie. Ich schlief und schlief nachts. Ich habe noch nicht gesehen, die ursprngliche Liebe ist nicht romantisch, und ihr Gewicht wird so schwer sein, Leute traurig, Menschen Trnen, Schmerzen und Nike Air Huarache Schwarz Reduzierte dann Selbstverletzung. Nach dieser Angelegenheit Peng Weiwei gendert viel, die Kleidung allmhlich auf die Exposition gehen, die ursprngliche Punkt der Abteilung fr Kunst Studenten Yapi Atmosphre allmhlich verschwinden, die Nacht nicht nach Hause zurckkehren, um alltglich zu werden. Ich bin sehr besorgt, aber kein Weg zu berreden. Da es ihr nicht helfen kann, kann man nur vorgeben, unsichtbar zu sein. Andre und ich haben die diplomatischen Beziehungen wieder aufgenommen, jeden Morgen oder an der alten Stelle, die auf mich wartet. Er war von PENG Wei - wei beeindruckt und fragte: "Ist das dein schner Freund, okay?
