      Mechanic near Nashville, TN?

      Any good mechanics for Audi/VW/European cars near Nashville? Just mechanics that are willing to diagnose and work on one, not performance or anything, cheaper than an actual Audi dealership.

      Success.



      I think flooding was it, caused by a weak battery that showed 12v but tested bad at an auto parts store. Flooded due to many cranking cycles where it turned over but didn't fire?

      Given that it ran fine a week ago (was daily-driven about 16 miles to work and then home, partly on highway, no problems reported by my daughter)...

      Help! V6 cranks but doesn't start.

      Daughter's Passat cranks but won't start. Took a quick look today but need more ideas.

      Tach moves when cranking, I think that rules out crank position sensor, right?

      I smell fuel at the muffler...

      OK, I was wrong. The W8 tensioner (as an assembly) does swing to loosen like other cars I've worked on. But the tensioning unit itself is a separate piece, unlike others where the arm/pulley/spring...

      Not sure there should be any prying involved. As I remember, the W8 belt tensioner is not like the spring-loaded, swinging arm type found on many cars. I think there's an adjuster bolt that tightens...

      Jerk shifting into 1st from stop?

      Passat W8 6-speed, 01E, pretty sure internals are similar to other 6-spd 01E's (but bell housing different)

      Car at full stop, idling in neutral
      Press clutch to floor, shift into...

    10. Whistle/moan cruising 30-35mph? Sounds like wind whistling?

      '01 Audi TT Quattro 225hp AMU

      When I'm driving about 30-35 mph, maybe 40, there is sometimes a "whistling" sound. Not high pitched, not following engine RPM, not even following what I would expect...
    11. If your rear caliper piston won't turn in, check the parking brake

      Today I was replacing rear rotors and pads on an '01 A4 Quattro. The piston turned freely but it just wasn't going in at all.

      I googled this and found others with the same problem, but no...

      No problem. Zimmermann discs and Akebono pads in a full kit from fcpuro.com. I was surprised it didn't come with the "sliders" and I couldn't find any others, so I cleaned them up and reused them.

      Still running fine after 200 miles of driving.

    14. Whatcha call the pad "sliders" and do you need them?

      I don't know the name for these parts, but they are a thin piece of bent stainless steel that fit between the little tabs at the ends of the brake pads and the bracket the pads sit in.

      I don't believe the snub mount is supposed to bear weight. It's just to prevent the engine from twisting much (note how it's off-center from the crank) and dampen some vibrations. If the rubber is...
