Do you have the tightening sequence and torques for the plastic manifold?Just a word of advice to remove the manifold bolts in the correct sequence and to tighten them to the correct torques and to replace the gaskets.
Tightening sequence for intake manifold
– Tighten bolts for intake manifold in the sequence -1 to 10-.
t Tighten initially to 8 Nm
t Subsequently tighten to 9 Nm and then tighten 90° further
I wish I could confirm but I do not have access to the repair manual. I went with my instincts for torques. Regarding sequence, start in the middle and work your way out (there's a sequence in the DIY you can follow).Do you have the tightening sequence and torques for the plastic manifold?
The same question for all other screws or please confirm the information below:
1. Engine Lifting Eyelet to Cylinder Head: 22 Nm
2. Fuel Distributor to Intake Manifold: 25 Nm
3. High Pressure Lines to Fuel Rail: 25 Nm
4. High Pressure Pump: 25 Nm
5. Fuel Supply Line to Fuel Rail: 25 Nm
Try lifting one of the wheels off the ground with the car in gear. Then, rotate the wheel and see if that turns over the engine. If you've got a manual transmission, try it in 6th gear. If that doesn't work, try something like this .Hi, i am at the blasting stage but would like to know how to manually crank this engine ( i don't really want to use the push button start to electrically crank it, given fuel pressures, error codes, etc.
Rather than a bolt at the crankshaft pulley there is just a threaded hole as in the picture below from another forum (Audiworld member V10AWD).
Is there a bolt of a particular size, threading, I can screw in there it have something to turn the engine with, or something other way to turn it?
I had to resort to just cranking the engine with the key, rather then buy the VAG Socket #T40058 to turn it. I disconnected the wires to both high pressure fuel pumps and removed the really that controls the gas tank fuel pump (which in my A8 is in the trunk by the battery.thanks for the suggestion ES, I'll try to lift up one wheel and turn (I have an automatic), hopefully the all wheel drive mechanisms won't do weird stuff, or if i can figure out what size bolt screws in the crankshaft pulley, I'll post it.
