After driving A3 8P for 11 years I'm planning on buying A6 C7.
Now, I've found a good model, 3.0tdi 272cv dsg, but with air suspension.
I'm wondering what are the general experiences with air suspensions?
1. Maintenance vs regular suspension? Do I need to expect a lot of expensive...
My 1.9tdi with around ~122k km (75k miles) developed a turbo whine.
First it started on downspool, when revving it in idle and releasing the pedal, then on ~1600->1000 rpm you could hear a whine.
After that it started becoming worse and worse.
I took the car for the turbo rebuild, and...
I have visited two mechanics and both said it's the turbo :( But the whistle is only the beginning and that I shouldn't worry, to drive it as I used to so far and if it gets worse then repair or replace turbo...
I've started getting some turbo whistle when the RPMs drop from ~1500/600 to idle RPMs.
It sounds exactly like this:
Is this something serious, should I take the car for the turbo rebuild?
It has 120k km (75k miles), regular oil changes, never thrashed until oil warmed and in...
I've noticed recently a slight oil gathering around the oil cap on top of the engine.
I've got 1.9tdi 77kW PD, around 75k miles on clock (120k km). I'm the first owner, and engine has been take care of pretty good. First ~55k miles were mostly 75mph on cruise control, while last 20k...
Fluid was probably ~20k miles old. I don't know what they did when they replaced them and what procedure they used, it is an official dealer so I guess they use the correct procedure :(
I will test it tomorrow, maybe even record it and share it here.
I've searched online for the symptoms and...
I've taken my Audi to the stealers and they've replaced my disk pads (both fronts and rears). Since I bought the car, brake pedal was always biting at the top, and was biting pretty hard straight on, but now, after the stealers replaced break pads, break pedal feels "spungy" and I need...
what are the pros and cons on EGR software block?
I know in general:
- no carbon buildup in intake
- more power due to more oxygen
- smoother idling
- ecology, obviously
- longer warm up times
- potential MOT issues
I've got an offer from one tuner for chip tunning...
So is 110 too hot? I mean it was ~40 deg outside and I run it with A/C on but still I don't think I remember these temperatures from before I replaced thermostat... I think they were lower ~5-10 degrees... So I was wondering what are the experiences of other people here?
I've changed my thermostat recently (old one was opening on low temperatures) and did an oil change + belts change.
Now, my temperature gauge is dead set on 90C once the engine has warmed up and everything seems kinda fine.
But, one thing I did notice is, if I check the oil...
I own 1.9tdi bought new in December 2008, with around 60k miles on the clock, mostly highway. Last two years I did around 5k, mostly city driving (cause I now work from home and don't travel as much), and I've noticed one strange issue lately.
Gauge for temperature was always pinned...
I want to see if the trye pressures are same for different types of engines - for example I'm running 1.9tdi. I guess if it's smaller engine like 1.6 tyre pressure in front will be lower, so if you could post photos of your sticker on S-line or S3 models I would appreciate it....
I need a part number of the door sticker with tyre pressures and tyre dimensions on A3 8P S-line... so the sticker with 18" wheels on it. S3 sticker is fine too...
Could someone dig it up for me?
