At what point should you have the timing belt replaced ?

A few days ago I noticed my '01 Audi allroad's air suspension compressor goes on at 30 mph and usually doesn't shut off until I slow down to 10 mph. I just bought the car about 2 weeks ago and I've never noticed the compressor going this long. What could cause this issue? I seem to have no problems with the air suspension itself, when I come out to my car in the morning the suspension has not deflated, so I'm assuming the air compressor issue has little or nothing to do with the air struts themselves.

I have been told I need to replace ALL the control Arms for
$1600 - there is no uneven tire wear / pulling to one side -
not riding smoothly

Cant find the transmission oil dipstick to check the oil, why would it be so hard to find? where is it? and how do I add tranny oil?

My car simply does not start!

Hi,

I will have added approximately 1 1/2 qts of oil since my last oil change 5k miles ago. I change the oil every 5k miles. It's not burning it as far as I know becuz I passed CT emmissions with no problems.

No leaks that I can see also.

Is this usage normal for this engine?

Thanks for your help.

Miss fire# 2

what would cause my radiator fans not to be working

Stock 95 S-6 turbo five cylinder with 180,000 miles. It hesitates and surges when try to accelerate but runs ok as just cruise at even speed. Ran three bottles of BG44 to clean injectors and seemed to help initially but then started again. took off injectors and were spraying even pattern. Listened with stethoscope and all clicking about the same. took them out and all spraying same diamond pattern. replaced fuel filter. replaced plugs with Bosch from dealer. replaced connectors between coils and plugs. put on a new charger or activator that fires coils ( on firewall and plugs into 3 coils per activator) and made no improvement. Took to Audi dealer who charged $125 for diagnostic but he found no solution to the problem. Help would appreciate any suggestions of what else could be causing this problem.

I have a 2001 Audi allroad with 136,000 miles and I'm unsure of the transmission service history. The problem I'm currently having is with the torque converter. I hear most early 2000's models have this issue with a cracked seal on the torque converter. Anyway- I was told I could drive the car the way it is without many issues, only that I could expect worse gas mileage and for the transmission to occasionally pulsate when I accelerate. I just bought this car so it's been driving me crazy, I just want it to run the way its supposed to.

I spoke with my mechanic and he told me not to bother replacing the fluid or the torque converter because once the fluid is changed to something clean, the transmission gears could slip and fail. He suggested I just drive the car the way it is until the transmission fails... I'm not really happy with his solution to my problem.

Considering the mileage, is it possible for me to change the trans fluid and torque converter without worrying about having the transmission fail?

Where is the Thermostat located?

Car was running little hot, then ran hot hot for a few minutes and engine stopped, started one more time, enough to drive to a safe spot, still hot, stopped and won't start. Sounds weird when tries to start. Is this a timing problem or engine replacement?

I have been told by three repair places that my heater core needs replacing, I can't understand why it is so horribly expensive to replace such an inexpensive part. Are there any alternative to make my defroster work? I can live without a heater, but safety requires a defroster here on the coast. I have just spent $5,000 to get the car running without smoking or leaking, so I want to spend as little more money as possible to have a working defroster. Thank you SO much.

Any idea root cause of this phenomena on a 180,000 engine? Spark plugs replaced, Fuel system tuned up recently, replaced Fuel pressure regulator and still erratic.

Love my audi except for the electrical gremlins!! My cruise control only works when its hot???do I need a new computer control??

I brought my audi to my mechanics house and he said there was low compression in cylinder 2 and that it was 1500 to fix it. I checked all the basics and couldnt figure it out so i brought it to him. He first believed the timming belt was off and now believes it needs a valve job

My car has a fan roblem

i was going to buy this car but when i went to look at itthe abs light was on and the man said he could fix it but i would have to pay him alot more money so i didnt risk it and decided to not buy the car. I was curious how much would it have been to fix it? he said it had to do with the breaks and a tube?

Today I got an estimate from Audi for the exchange of the catalytic converter (driverside) of 4600,-, RepairPal estiamtes at max. 1193,- Can you name a mechanic who would the job for this money?

cant find where to install speed sensor for speedometer---not registering mph

Re-wire roter, re-fit altenator, start up, 15min alernator not charging again!! What could the problem be my friend??????

I have slippage in the trans (107,000 miles) and tiptronic not working properly, how much for a transmission?

I have a coolant leak on the rear left side of the motor.... I can see the drip just can't identify exactly where it's coming from. What could this problem be and possible estimate. 2003 Audi a4 1.8t quartto

A/C blowing hot; refrigerant low. Recharged and leaked again. Dye tested on 3 separate occasions at 3 different shops including Audi dealer, and leak not found. One mechanic told me the line runs under the dash at one point and he'd have to remove dash to check: $1000 labor whether fixed or not. Thoughts?

I have 138,000 miles and it was time to flush the coolant. I had it done at a Brakes Plus and now the coolant light has been coming on. I've been having to add coolant every couple weeks. The guys there told me they weren't familiar with Audis and that it was inevitable. They told me to take it to an Audi specialist and before I spend any more money some advice or previous experience would help! It seems weird that it's leaking now that they flushed it. Thanks!
