Default Audi A6 starting problems

I have a 2003 Audi A6 and my check engine is on. i have had the problem where my car wouldn't start and had to change my alternator and battery. yet again i have the same problem but this time when starting my car sometimes i have to push on the accelerator to give it gas. just yesterday my car will not start at all now as it wont kick over (seems like if i had no gas in the tank). Any suggestions? Is there a video showing how to change your spark plugs and coils, fuel filter, etc?

What do you mean by won't kick over? Does the motor crank over smooothly when you turn the ignitino key into the Start position. Coilpacks and spark plugs are asy to replace if you have the right tools. Likely need an Allen key to undo the screws holding the colipack loom; then need to use a small flathead screwdriver to separate the loom from the coilpack. The coilpack should then pull straight up off the sparkplug.

My uncle put it on the system reader to pull the codes and it comes down to me needing a tune up badly. I also found out that i need my oxygen sensors replaced. Once i i get a full tune up hopefully that will solve the whole problem. Thanks for the help
