Default 5000 CD of 86/9 Buy it?

Hi folks, it's getting close to getting an other Audi again. I found a quatro of 86, what should I look for, what can I expect. I there a way to pull the codes and see what the car thinks of him self <img border="0" src=smileys/smiley2.gif border="0"> It stats rusting in some minor spots. How to stop that properly.
Is there a simple way to check the turbo?
You know all the relevant questions, I never had this model before, and I drove an Audi 80 diesel before in Europe.
Thanks and I would appreciate a fast reply, I don't want to loose this one. It's looking too good

I am not sure if you can pull any codes off of '86. I have 1991 1CQ, once I turn off the ignition the ECU has no memory for storing codes. The California models store codes into memory. There are a lot of problems to look for, mainly electrical. Radiator, heater core, Torsen differential, etc. just to name a few. Parts cost a vast fortune even if you do the work yourself. Door handles is another unpleasant experience with older models especially if you live in a cold climate, they freeze and break. Had that happen 3 times on my 4K.

We bought it <img border="0" src=smileys/smiley1.gif border="0"> now we have to make it as close to new as possible, so expect lots of questions. We live 140 km out of town and 4 hours away from the nearest dealer, so getting info/parts will be fun. We found 2 5000 Audi's at a wrecker, so if you need parts give a yell and I'll have a look there. We live in S.E. Alberta 50 km from Saskatchewan and 30 km from the US border.

Keep'm cruising


Fresh imported from Holland so give me a break on my English please.
