where do i start..... got a 2144 cc audi quattro 1985 5cyl. had so much trouble getting it to start, getting fuel and not a great spark when turning it over, replaced both sensors on the bell housing of the gearbox and still the same, sometimes if its turned over for say 20 times it will start but this doesnt happen very often, once running it runs fantastic (faultless), it sounds like a cam possition sensor fault but iam led to believe the crank sensor and engine speed sensors on the bellhousing work as the cam sensor? coil has been tested ok, we have had a fantastic spark on number 1 ht lead then tryed no2 = week and slow spark rechecked no1 and spark was like no2. The distributor has 3 wires on the side of it not sure how to test these or the purpose of these wires. I would be so so greatfull for any advice. [/b]
