Just after some advice...unfortunately I need a replacement engine as mine's had a seizure...It's a 2004 petrol 3.0 quattro sport cab 6-speed manual with engine code ASN....just wondering if i have to stick with the ASN engine or can I go with 'another' 3.0 petrol engine, ie a non-ASN...
Around town - stop/start etc - 21.5-22.5mpg
Motorway steady at 85mph - about 24-26mpg - lower mpg at 70mph funnily enough - I think because the engine wasn't at peak torque revs at 70mph (about 2900-3000prm) so wasn't braething as well as it should.
Peak torque revs is about 3300-3500rpm...
I agree...it might be better, in the long term, and looking at the bigger (financial) picture, to spend £3000 on a full engine rebuild of your existing engine than go the replacement route at maybe £1500 plus £1000 fitted, but not your engine!!
Better the devil you know!
Wipers - invest in a large can of 3in1 penetrating oil - 500mg...take off the wipers if you can (otherwise just take off the retaining nuts) - then start wasting the stuff all over the wiper mechanism located under the windscreen surround and also on or around the retaining nut threads for the...
Got a front bearing going on my A4 B6 3.0 Q-Sport (engine-ASN)
Anybody got a diagram or schematic as to how to get at it and get it off to replace it?
is it a difficult job?
I'm ok with most things...
Thanks in anticipation

Raises the question though of how many of us normal drivers, forgetting the rare F430 ones, are still using 'super' unleaded?
I suppose its a financial issue, as we're all in different circumstances, but with 'super' now approaching £1.40 a litre its a real costing issue for some. Not sure I...
With regard to the 3.0 petrol (ASN) engine....Wondering if anybody can tell me:-
1) Where the Crankcase Breather Valve is located?
2) Does it have a Pressure Regulator Valve (or is that just for the Turbo models) and if so where is that located?
I've got lumpy idle issues...car has...
No, whatever I do it stays solidly at 90c, which is good so think the pump is ok...thinking maybe thermostat might be stuck closed (as well as heather maybe blocked).
Could the thermostat be the culprit too?
