So I'm 17, and looking to get my first car. My grandfather was going to give me his old 1990 Audi Quattro, a week or two before he was planning on giving me the keys, it's started to have problems starting. When it starts the engine turns over, then dies. It takes anywhere from 10-15 times to get it started and to stay started. Each time it turns over it takes longer to die, as it looks for it's idle point (I believe). Once it does turn over and stay at about 900 rpms (normal idle point). You have to leave the car running for 5-10 minutes before you give it any gas. If you give it has to soon it dies again. I want to replace and fix the part rather than go but a new car. Our old mechanic thinks it has something to do with the computer, but I want to be sure before I go buy that part and put it in.
Feel free to email me with any questions or thoughts
