2001 Audi TT Quattro Q&A
2001 Audi TT Quattro Question: Car wont start or crank.
What would cause this car to cut off and not restart. Oil is good and so is battery. Alternator is good. Coils and Plugs are new and work. When I try to start the car the starter is spinning and so is the alternator pulley and belt. The timing belt is not spinning at all. and the engine is not turning over. Could this be cause by the fly wheel? Any thoughts on where I should begin? - gianniem1
Your statements are against each other. ,,When I try to start the car the starter is spinning and so is the alternator pulley and belt'' ,,The timing belt is not spinning at all. and the engine is not turning over.'' The crank shaft has to turn if the alternator belt and pulley is spinning, so I don't understand your statement about the engine is not turning over??? If the flywheel is damaged and the starter won't be able to turn the engine there should be nothing that could turn at the front at all. If the timing belt won't turn while the engine is cranking that means bent valves, serious damage. In this condition the engine turns over, spins the accessories pulleys or sometimes locks up - depends on the damage to the valves. Zee - ZeeTech
THE TIMING BELT HAS A PROBLEM AN IT SOUNDS LIKE ITS NOT TURNING THE CAM. REMOVE THE OIL CAP AND HAVE SOMEONE TURN THE MOTOR OVER SEE IF THE VALVES ARE MOVING IF THERE NOT DISASSEMBLE TIMING BELT OR I WILL LET ME KNOW. BRETT - BRETTONEILL
