2003 Audi S6 Problems

Bushings May Deteriorate With Age and Cause Noise

Various bushings—located around the subframe, suspension, and steering—deteriorate with age. A clunking noise when driving over bumps, accelerating, or stopping may be a sign of worn bushings.

Overheating Due to Failing Thermostat

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

Rainwater May Accumulate in Plenum Tray Due to Clogged Drains

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.

Potential Fuel Leak From Crack at Rollover Valve

The aging of the plastic material in the fuel tank rollover valve, combined with stress from the aluminum ventilation line attached to it, may lead to cracking of the connection nipple. The cracked nipple could leak fuel, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will reinforce the nipple on the rollover valve or repair the cracking as necessary. This recall is expected to begin during June 2011. The Audi recall number is 20L8/JY.
