Audi S8 Problems

Various Probelms Caused by Clogged Plenum Tray Drain

Clogged drains can allow rainwater to accumulate in the plenum tray (at the base of the windshield). The water may leak into the vehicle's interior, brake booster, or electrical components, which can lead to major problems. Our technicians recommend keeping the tray clear of leaves, pine needles, and other debris.

Fluid Leak From Transmission Output Shaft Seal

A fluid leak may develop from the propeller shaft seal on the rear of the transmission. Our technicians tell us that replacing the seal will commonly correct this concern.

Check Engine Light and/or Engine Overheating Due to Failed Thermostat

The thermostat may erratically stick open or closed. The can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light and/or engine overheating.
