2007 Audi A6 Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Faulty Torque Converter

A problem with the torque converter can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

Decreased Power and Fuel Economy from Carbon Buildup

The 2006-2016 Audi A6 2.0TFSI, 3.0TFSI, 3.2FSI and 4.2FSI direct injection engines are subject to carbon buildup in the intake system which can cause power loss, OBD codes and a check engine light, and a rough idle. In normal engines, the engine is cleaned by the gasoline flowing through the injectors and into the intake system, however, the A6 uses direct injection so gasoline does not flow through common carbon buildup areas. 

Possible trouble codes include: P0300P0301P0302P0303P0304, P0305, P0306, P0307, P0308

The solution is to remove the intake manifold and professionally clean the intake manifold, intake ports on the cylinder head, and the intake valves. This may need to be done in as few as 20,000 miles.

The upkeep on this car is way over priced. No one can change the oil except the dealership because it requires a special computer to reset the system, same thing w/ the tires so everytime you rotate the tires guess what no on one can reset the sensor.
