driving home tonight my 2003 A4 quattro 3.0 v6 started a REALLY rough idle
and didn't have much power... like it wasn't firing on all 6 cylinders... I
got it home and smelled something like plastic melting.. I popped the hood
and could see something that looked like a fitting on the end of a metal
tubing GLOWING RED HOT. It's on the right side, towards the
firewall, and down lower than the spark plugs..
of course I just got it back from the 80k miles servicing yesterday where
the dealer tried to tell me I really should have the timing belt changed...
I refused it..
ugh, I think they jinxed me.
