: More Problems? You Bet! - Car wont Start

Ok, here's my situation and some possible symptoms that may help it be diagnosed. Ok, about 6 months ago I had the motor replaced ('96 Audi A6Q), the can ran Okay ever since, but when the car got warm (especially when I'd be idling at a stoplight) it would missfire quite a bit, nothing to horrible. However, 2 weeks ago I went outside to start up my car, and it just wouldnt kick, it turned and turned, but there was no actual firing. I added some "Heet" and filled up the gas tank a bit, and then it fired RIGHT UP. It ran fine for about 2 weeks (they were pretty warm). Now just yesterday I tried starting the car and it wouldnt start. I added some more Heet, and nothing happened that night. I went back out in the morning, tried it, nothing...put 5 more gallons of gas in it, it started RIGHT UP again! So I drove it to the nearest gas station, filled it up completely, and it WONT START AGAIN! which leads me to posting this, and hopefully someone's reply of what it could possibly be.

Just for future reference, It was the Cam Position Sensor, $100 part, Easy Fix.
