    no start no spark

    My car died on me. Its a 2000 atw a4. I noticed theres no spark on all 4 cylinders. Pulled the crank positiin sensor and it was covered in oil on the inside. Wiped it clean installed back and car purrs like a kitty. 3 days later same thing happened. Why am I having so much oil on my flywheel?

    Could it be transmission seal? Torque converter?

    Is the fluid reddish (transmission) or amberish (engine)?

    Redish. But i think it's my coolant dripping from the oil cooler and soaking through the seal on the sensor.

    Fix the coolant leak first, and see if that helps the sensor problem.
