    Help Please A4 B8.5 Manual Gearbox Issues (no oil)

    I have a 2014 A4 petrol manual (B8.5), front wheel drive with around 20k miles. A few months ago, the clutch started slipping so I took the car to a local indie garage (Audi wanted 3k for the repair...) who replaced the clutch and flywheel (both of which had definitely worn at a low mileage??)...

    Oil pump questions / future proofing

    Evening all, I've seen a few forum posts mentioning issues with the 2.0TFSI oil pump. Is there an intrinsic design issue with them, and if so, how can I try to mitigate it on mine? I saw a link to this kit which claims to remove the (allegdly) problematic sprung loaded balance shaft sproclet...

    1.5 TFSI COD lurching when cold

    Hi all, I've spent a few months in my new A3 1.5 TFSI (manual), and I'm having trouble driving it smoothly at low speeds particularly when cold. The engine seems to bog down quite easily, and any attempt to compensate ends up with me lurching and kangarooing. I put it down to me getting used...

    Stutter at idle (misfire) but no codes.

    I've got a 57 1.8tfsi and I have, what appears to be, a slight misfire at idle. The PCV has been replaced along with the rear crank seal, and oil pick-up pipe which seemed to improve the idle but the shudder has come back. Car does drive fine with only a slight hesitation from partial throttle...

    Wheel spacer help

    Hi, I have an Audi A4 b7 2.0 tfsi special edition.. bought some 12mm spacers (24mm per axle) however the hub lip is too long so the spacers don’t sit flush. Would it be ok to cut off 3mm off the hub lip? Or are there 12mm spacers that fit without having to do this? Thank you

It's been well serviced with 5w40 premium oil and either Tesco momentum or vpower fuel. Can followers...

    2.0tfsi engines

    hi, looking to get an a6 and these engines seem rare. Two key questions 1. Are they good engines in this range ? I see that they are 168ps whereas my b7 cab is 197ps. Can only assume different engine altogether. 2. Do these suffer from oil consumption issue - is it worth avoiding altogether...
