The Audi A4 models covered by this manual were first introduced to the UK in February 1995. Mechanically there is a fundamental similarity to the VW Passat, but with the engines fitted 'in-line' instead of transverse. Saloon and Estate (Avant) models are available, equipped with a variety of engine sizes. This manual covers the 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engine models, including both normally-aspirated and turbocharged versions. The smallest engine is the petrol 1600 SOHC, and in addition there are 1781 cc DOHC petrol engines. All diesel engines are SOHC turbocharged. Fully-independent front suspension is fitted, with the components attached to a subframe assembly; the rear suspension is semi-independent, with a torsion beam and trailing arms. A five-speed manual gearbox is fitted as standard to all models.
A wide range of standard and optional equipment is available within the model range to suit most tastes, including an anti-lock braking system and air conditioning. For the home mechanic, the A4 is quite straightforward to maintain, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible.
Your Audi A4 Saloon, Estate (Avant) Manual
The aim of this manual is to help you get the best value from your vehicle. It can do so in several ways. It can help you decide what work must be done (even should you choose to get it done by a garage). It will also provide information on routine maintenance and servicing, and give a logical course of action and diagnosis when random faults occur. However, it is hoped that you will use the manual by tackling the work yourself. On simpler jobs it may even be quicker than booking the car into a garage and going there twice, to leave and collect it. Perhaps most important, a lot of money can be saved by avoiding the costs a garage must charge to cover its labour and overheads.
