if you changed the timing belt also, you'll need a manual to correct the timing belt installation...check the timing and for specifics, you should be able to find a shop manual at the local library with the right information on this -- make copies of the pages, as they are usually for REFERENCE only...:) You will need to reset the camshaft timing then double check the ignition timing. If you have a shop manual, the procedure is covered in section 4. If not, send me an e-mail and I'll send the details. As I recall, the crankshaft should be moved to top dead centre and the camshaft has three scribe marks, two 180 degrees apart, level with the top of the head, the third a 90 degrees to the other marks pointing straight up. Ignition timing is 2 degrees BTDC at warm idle with the vacuum lines disconnected from the distributor. Cheers Malcolm

Could an exhaust issue on a 4-cylinder engine cause it to misfire?

A misfire caused by the ignition system exhausts unburned fuel into the exhaust system that enters the catalytic converter and causes its temperature to rise dramatically. An exhaust issue could cause for cylinder 4 to misfire. The camshaft lobes, which are responsible for opening and closing the intake and exhaust vales, are another source for a misfire and rough running engine. The cam lobes for the No. 4 cylinder should be inspected to see if they have been worn down due to lack of oil or other mechanical problem. A damaged camshaft lobe will not allow a valve to open properly if at all.

How much cost to fix a cylinder misfire for audi 2002 A6?

1st you have to determine the cause of the misfire: could be as simple as a gad spark plug or wire or bad ignition coil or as involved as a bad piston or valve. do a compression test to see if the misfire is caused by an internal engine componet. IF compression is within limits then problem is probably an electrical problem.
