    My A4 starts great/runs great for about 3min then quits. There is a seacock where the fresh water comes in to prevent the engine flooding with water. I forgot to shut it. Started the engine and blew the head gasket. I replaced the head gasket. Although in the process 2 of the studs broke off. I had to retap the holes and put in new studs. Also the thermostat had a crack in it so I ordered a new one and replaced it. After getting the engine put back together she started great and ran great but stalls. I thought the issue was fuel. I put in a new water separating fuel filter. Took off the fuel pump and carb, cleaned them out and replaced with new gaskets. The engine is getting fuel. Once the engine gets up to temp it shuts down. Theres no temperature gauge installed. Itís spitting out water well. I have a YouTube channel. Sailing Reckless. Theres an episode called Donít watch this unless you love engines. I think in that one you can see the engine.
