I have an 98 a4 quattro 1.8t
when I go to crank the car it turns over and begins to idoil then it
loses power and completly turns the car off
When you give it gas sometimes it will start to rev up
Other times the rpms drop and the vehicle turns off
Ive got it to completly turn over and managed to drive it around for
about 2 hours until it started puttering and didnt want to stay turned

engine light on? does that light ever come on when the other lights come
look for vacuum hoses off or broken. hear any hissing while the engine is
check the big hoses from the turbo to the throttle body at the engine's
how does the brake pedal feel? hard to press/stop?
maybe low fuel pressure due to clogged fuel filter
how many miles on car/engine?
maybe coolant temperature sensor.
have you installed new spark plugs and air filter?
