    Hi. I recently took my car to the local garage for the above problem but they didn't have a clue what the issue was. Reading bits on the web, it sounds like it could be the PRV or PCV or possibly both.

    Firstly, am I right in my assumptions, second, what are the replacement part numbers and lastly, where abouts are they located in the engine bay??

    Help please.....

    So... An update... Took it to the local Audi specialist and after much listening and poking around, couldn't see anything wrong. Apparently the S6 engine does have a lot of vacuum and there's nothing wrong.... Think I must be going paranoid, sure it's not the end of it though....

    You could take it to an independent and get it smoke tested, that would reveal any vac leaks.

    Brilliant. Do you know what diaphragm it was for other people's reference?

    The only thing the S6 sucks is FUEL!
