Have you replaced your tandem pump on your Audi?
Have you been advised to replace it?
Does your car suffer from hesitation, poor starting ( fuel run back ) or similar hard starts in the morning?
I see the internet littered with posts on this subject on Audi's and VW's and am trying to build a picture of how many, where, what models etc?
Please see below....
Audi have recomended a intank lift pump and or Tandem pump to help cure the issues.
Audi Technik today confirmed that there does seem to be low pressure and that the tandem pump seems to be failing
I had mine replaced under warranty on 05/08/2009 at 59k miles and now at 23/04/2013 and 102k miles I need another one!!
Are these parts made of chocolate??
Audi Technik have quoted £422.62 to replace tandem pump and see where it is from there.
Audi are looking at replacing tandem pump, intank lift pump, injector seals, various nuts & bolts + labour at, wait for it........£1460.00
I have a funny feeling that there will be a phone call to Audi in my very near future
Replacing tandem pumps every 2-3 years or 40k - 50k miles........I don't think so!!
If you have any of these or similar issues with your vehicle and have been advised to replace the lift pump or tandem pump, or have already done so I'd appreciate input here so I can build a picture
Personally, I think we're paying for a poor design feature here, along the lines of the VW corrosion on the wings etc, but without the warranty to back it up...Thats not to say we need to take it lying down.
Hope to hear.......
