      Looks nice I wonder how these are to work on compared to B4
      1995 Audi S2 Avant

        For me the B5 is a well built car, and in some respects they are much the same as the B4. They used similar engines like the 1.8 ADR, the biggest change was the front and rear suspension, and the pinch bolt of hell was added!

        I've had one since 1998 and don't see me ever selling it.

          Back end suspension set up looks identical to my S2

            So, thanks to Newsh and his neighbour Yann for sending this my way.

            I've made an initial assessment and it quite good body wise for age and mileage. Nice spec with half leather Quattro script seats.

            The main issue is the engine. I haven't actually heard it as I don't want to run it until I've looked inside but apparently sounds like a bag of nails and oil light is flickering. Plan is to drop the sump and clean the pick up plus inspect the bottom end. Then remove the rocker cover and have a poke around in there. The timing chain tensioner might be making all the noise. We will see. Pics to follow as usual.

              Your right rear end quattro is the same front and front wheel drive rear was different.

                I did the cam chain on my on my A4, the only symptoms was a slight rattle and the revs fluctuated on idle. It never brough the low pressure warning light on. I think you have another issue.

                  Last time I heard it run it sounded like a diesel, actually if you've seen the film 4 Lions, it sounded like that car. It now has a skreech which could be the serpentine belt idled seized.

                    Done lots of reading on this. Oil starvation caused by blocked strainer causes hydraulic tensioner to fail, causes loose chain and noise plus rough running

                        I was referring to the overall design, if you go part by part then there are a lot of differences

                          Just hope it's not that, otherwise it could be replacement engine time or a full rebuild of the engine.

                            Been there with one of those. Mine had bent valves from the same. I might still have some used straight valves if you need. Odd ribe bit for head bolts. I have one of you need.
