Scan it for codes. Something else died most likely. If the crank sensor or cam sensor went, either failure will prevent the car from starting. There are other possibilities of course but those are...

Best bet is to search for a timing belt procedure and follow that. It'll get you access to the alternator, talking you through the disassembly needed, and you'll be able to go from there.

Valve cover gasket, CCT gasket, or half-moon seal. Very common failure. I would buy the parts to do all of those for each head - if one side failed, chances are the other will too, and if you're...

Cam sensor failures are not rare on any Audi of this vintage. It's possible something else could be triggering this code but chances are it's the cam sensor itself. You could swap your cam sensors...

Make sure the wiring isn't broken and the connector isn't corroded, like I said. If not, but a sensor from ECS or FCPEuro - they'll work fine.

There's your answer. If the wires aren't broken and the connector pins aren't corroded, you need a new sensor.

You're absolutely getting screwed at that price, even if it's parts and labor. No shop should need more than 45 minutes to change an O2 sensor out. Find an independent shop, buy the part online, and...

I don't think there are two separate half moon seals but I'm not positive. There may be a similar shaped "dip" in the valve cover gasket though as there is on the 30v. It's very possible that the VC...
