Customer Question

Audi 2lt A4 2008. The pulleys turn but the crank /camshaft don't why
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Audi. The Audi Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: The car just stopped and now won't start as described earlier. Thank you
JA: Figuring out why a car won't start can be a challenge - it could be a simple repair, or something a bit more complicated. Fortunately, the mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Checked for spark and fuel at the injectors all good
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Audi Mechanic should know about your Audi?
Customer: No mainly why engines not turning but pullies are
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Audi Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Expert:  Kevin replied 9 months ago.
If alternator belt is turning then crankshaft has to also turn as its the only way it is given drive so it sounds very much like the cam belt has failed in some way .either teeth have stripped or the belt has slackened
