I am after some advice on the engine light, running rough issue and the current situation.... (I know there are fairly similar posts such as - http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=79491) - however, I would be interested in your advice and thoughts on my situation - J7USS - Would be great to hear from you, sounds like you had something similar. Essentially - Engine Light On - Audi Diagnosed following part replacements; Part Number A06A 129 101 D - Valve A06A 103 247 - Housing Which were taken to a Just VW car specialist in Coventry in July - to resolve the running rough issue - i believe the above parts were fitted, along with the following parts list (All in cost £700); Injectors - 89.43 Ignition Coil - 27.91 Breather Tube - 18.99 Oil Filter - 8.95 Hose - 4.53 Valve - 20.31 Oil Pipe - 62.39 Oil Pump - 97.43 Seal Ring & Suction Pipe - 10.00 Oil and Flush - 35.00 Following the above visit the engine light came on again - took it back to said VW specialist to be told that the error codes were Carb & sensor related, however, it needed more time to run in so they cleared the codes and away i went... The light appeared again... so the car went back to said specialist, to be told that after 1 week of them having the car - "The car has come to us with a running fault and engine management light on. During the initial inspection of the vehicle, we have noticed that the oil cap cannot be removed with the engine running due to excessive vacuum pressure in the engine, which indicates the engine is breathing very heavily. Also noted is that the coolant system is pressuring and bubbling which indicates a coolant circulation problem. A head gasket test was carried out to further investigate the issue, the result of this was a change in colour from blue to yellow/green indicating a possible head gasket fault. The cylinder head was then removed, along with the engine breather system, pipework, block breather etc. The engine breather was found to be clogged due to engine sludging and carbon build up, which caused excessive pressure in the breather system. The complete engine breather system needs replacing. The cylinder head shows signs of carbon/sludging on the valve seats and running up the valve stems, especially on cylinder 3. The cylinder head was sent away to an engineering company who have found all exhaust valve guides to be badly worn, they suspect the exhaust valves have not been closing correctly. The cylinder head requires new valve guides and a head reface due to a slight warp on the head face, caused by the coolant circulation issue. The water pump was removed and the impellor found to be broken, causing overheating issues due to the coolant not circulating properly. The catalytic converter has been checked and found to be all present and correct. On the rear of the cylinder head the secondary air valve seems to have been removed previously as it has paint marks on it. The vacuum pipe inlet on the secondary air valve is damaged and has previously just been pushed back on. The inlet pipe was found to be bent. The above issues also caused the oil pump and injector issues that we have previously dealt with." There are now 2 options - 1.) Car re-built and return for £0 or 2.) Repair the car - parts list below (yes you'll notice duplicates of the work above) for approx £1800. (Which includes the Cylinder head, which already sent away to a third party for inspection and clean up) 058 103 383 Q - GASKET - 30.12 06A 103 385 A - SCREWHEAD (x10) - 35.50 058 198 217 - SET OF SEALS - 5.42 038 103 085 C - SEAL - 15.27 058 198 025 A - CAM COVER GASKET - 17.83 06B 103 469 BA - 61.60 036 109 675 A - VALVE SEAL (x20) - 62.20 058 129 717 D - GASKET - 3.10 058 253 039 L - GASKET - 4.93 037 121 687 - WASHER - 1.76 06B 121 070 H - PIPE - 36.63 06B 121 111 K - THERMOSTAT - 46.00 06B 103 663 G - FUNNEL - 2.86 06A 253 039 E - GASKET - 2.32 058 145 757 C - GASKET - 1.81 06B 145 771 P - OIL PIPE - 62.39 8D0 253 115 - GASKET - 7.66 1H0 253 115 - GASKET - 4.93 06A 121 012 X - WATER PUMP - 31.68 06B 198 119 A - REPAIR KIT - 79.31 06B 131 101 K - VALVE - 79.42 078 131 120 K - GASKET - 1.81 078 131 120 M - GASKET - 0.69 06B 133 784 R - HOSE - 2.72 06B 133 607 N - PIPE - 39.00 058 133 785 B - ANGLED HOSE - 6.61 058 133 607 D - CONNECTING PIPE - 17.27 035 103 245 G - VALVE - 6.28 06A 103 247 - HOUSING - 2.86 06A 115 405 BS - BRACKET - 74.15 06A 115 441 J - GASKET - 5.63 038 117 070 A - SEAL - 2.82 035 906 149 A - O RING (x8) - 21.44 06A 103 213 F - BREATHERTUBE - 18.76 037 121 142 A - RETAINING SPRING - 0.53 N 904 673 01 - O RING - 3.03 06B 103 221 G - HOSE - 4.53 06B 103 213 T - TUBE - 32.17 06B 103 493 M - HOSE - 7.03 06B 103 221 H - HOSE - 5.12 Really just need some advice on the current issue and situation if possible - I am not mechanically and dont really understand the mechanics - however, for a car that was running a little rough, with performance and MPG still good, 88 parts and £2500 seems a little excessive?! Thoughts on Cit Advice / Indp Review / Legal Advice? Your time and effort is very mcuh appreciated, thank you in advance.
