Hi guys, brand new to the forum and Audi-owner world. Looks like there's a lot of helpful info on this forum. I searched but didn't find my particular question answered, and hope you can help. TIA!
I have a friend who is going to give me his old 1990 Audi 90
. It's been sitting in his driveway for like a year, and he just wants to get it off his hands and out of his way. So my questions are:
1) Aside from buying a new battery which I already did, what else should I expect to have to do to get the car
to start up? (spark? replace gasoline?)
2) He said the car was drivable when he last used it about a year ago, but the car wouldn't go into reverse. It's an automatic. Any thougths on what that could be? (maybe just add tranny fluid?)
3) I welcome all other comments about what to consider/look for as I decide if this car is worth hanging onto and trying to get running. (how can i tell if it's a 20v or quattro or whatever?)
Thanks. I know this isn't going to be a great car right off the bat, but I'm excited to learn and work on the car to restore some of it's former glory.
