Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No thanks, XXXXX XXXXX all. I'm mechanic in independent shop and
Looked up labor time like 17.5 hours, and found thread about timing.
From the codes I listed above and with the misfires
Do you agree with me thinking its the timing?
It will start if hold accelerater down , runs rough, backfire threw
Throttle body and then will die, only runs for about minute.
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 11 months ago.

with the p0346 code very very good possibility timing jumped or the adjuster is not working correctly!

I got another audi A4 1.8l turbo..2005

vin# wauac48h85k023600

62,688 miles...

 

.read codes and I have the following,

 

po507--idle air system

po036--o2 heater control bank 1, sensor 2

po011--intake camshaft position timing over advanced

po411-- secondary air injection

po706-- transmission range sensor

po722--output shaft speed sensor "no signal"

po299--turbo/super charger underboost

po141--o2 heater b1s2

 

inside on cluster engine running the gear range is all lite up and it flashes! I do have all gears, acts as if the transaxle is damaged. where to start with the codes above?

do you think its best to replace transaxle?

Expert:  Wolfgang replied 10 months ago.
Ok let me see which trans you have.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I read a tsb about it being the tcm for the speed
Output po722 if so I'm thinking it'll get rid of the
Po706 and that . Said sensor was up in trans pan
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 10 months ago.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
