      Um...I'm guessing that post was translated into english.
      From what I can read, it sounds like you're running pig rich. Many, many things can cause that condition. Vacuum hoses, 02 sensor, raggedy burned up broken wires. I would just Google "G60 running rich" and read for days...

      No problem. I'm quite sure I couldn't do any better in your language.
      That's still a pretty vague description. Do you have a Bentley repair manual? If not, there are plenty of PDF links floating around. Basic troubleshooting is covered extensively in it.
      Without knowing specifics, I'm just going to be regurgitating things that've been covered a million times already.
      You said in the first post it was running rich. Blue temp sensor, O2 sensor(wiring for it), ECU grounds, dead CO pot, the list goes on and on...
      Unfortunately, there is no magic G60 reset button(I've searched). You have to find the problem by process of elimination.

      Check that your idle/WOT switches on the throttle body are working properly

      Just getting into the motor to replace / remove all the vacuum hoses will reveal a bunch of other issues in need of repair. You may find the solution just by completing obvious overdue repairs. The G60 motor has layers upon layers of venerable systems. The more you peel away the more you'll wonder how these cars can run as long as they do.

      Sad, but true.
      Have you ever noticed how nicely Audi did their harnesses during that period?
      Everything was wrapped in silicone/fiberglass tubes. Important engine management sensor connectors were gold plated. Wire ends were protected from heat with rubber boots.

      I don't think that any amount of gold plating would make the corrado more than a gold plated turd. Sorry, just an observation.

      Start here. Sounds like the wide open throttle switch is stuck, or the wires are shorted. I they still start like this, they just chug and chug and spew black and foul spark plugs.
