2007 Audi A3 Problems

Check Engine Light and/or Hesitation Due to Failed High Pressure Fuel Pump

2.0L turbo charged engines may develop a hesitation on acceleration and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light due to a failed high pressure fuel pump or a worn camshaft follower or camshaft. Our technicians tell us that whenever the high pressure fuel pump is replaced the camshaft and the follower should be checked for wear. The camshaft lobe pushes on the follower to operate the high pressure fuel pump. Frequent oil changes and use of synthetic oil may help with this wear issue.

Lack of power due to throttle system fault

A lack of power may be noted and the Check Engine Light illuminated with various throttle system fault codes stored. Our technicians tell us this is generally caused by electrical connection issues at the throttle body. If this is the case a harness repair kit is available from Audi.

2007 Audi A3 Recalls

Driver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments

The driver's frontal air bag inflator may deploy the air bag with excessive pressure, resulting in the inflator rupturing and causing metal debris to be sprayed onto vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

Potential Fuel Leak During Extreme Driving Conditions

Under extreme driving conditions, fuel can leak from the fuel tank vent valve. The internal spring may be too weak to hold the valve closed. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected valve with an improved design. The recall is expected to begin by November 16, 2009. The Audi recall number is 20Q3/J3.

2007 Audi A3 Reviews

I love this car. I too, had the check engine light go on and off for a while, but the car burns a little oil, which probably affected the emissions causing this. I'm told that the oil burning is normal and since I've put 65k on the car, it's run fine the entire time. I like the DSG auto transmission when driving hard, but in traffic I'd prefer either a hydraulic automatic transmission or a s...
