Audi A4 Quattro QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My car has the check engine light on and so I scanned the car and got back a p0118 error code. I noticed you guys have a page about it and that a misdiagnosis can be bad coolant. my car often starts cold rough and runs the fan when still cold but then it turns off and wont really turn on once the car is warm even if I turn it off and back on. the check engine light pretty much stays on all the time. my temp gauge sits in the middle like it should and doesn't waver. I was wondering if these symptoms are more likely the coolant or the sensor or if there is no way to tell. also there seems to be two different coolant temp sensors mentioned on the internet, one that costs $80 and is a total pain to replace or a $20 part that you can replace without any real tools. Is it worth changing the coolent myself before getting the more expensive part changed since they will have to swap coolant anyway?
2009 Audi A4 Quattro 2.0L TFSI
Had oil leak from rear main seal area and CEL lights on. Diag codes pointed me to replacing the PCV valve and I also replaced all 4 coils andspark plugs, air filter and cleaned mass air flow sensor. Also changed oil and oil filter. Since replacing PCV valve the oil leak appears to have stopped with a few days of the oil that had turbo blowby finally draining out.
Diag codes had dropped from 22 to just 4 codes left. P1287 (too lean / vacuum leak) and P0300-0303 misfires on all 4 cylinders. The car was running fine but a but rough at idle. Attributed to too lean mixture. Reset systems with battery unhook and touching positive to ground and then after hooking back up did a throttle alignment. CEL was still on but car drove fine, no rough idle, perfectly normal driving. Would even say it was driving as well as day 1 with turbo power and smoothness. No noticeable misfires. Just the CEL with P2187 and the 300-303 misfires still lit up. Over past week the following codes have crept into the equation.
So now I've got codes regarding fuel press or sensor, air intake leak, vacuum leaks, and cylinder misfires.
Now if I clear the CEL. The car runs rough at idle, in park, drive, whatever.. at idle it's rough and misfiring like it wants to stall. When the CEL comes back on after a short amount of time the car returns to driving normally. So I feel like the ECU must be compensating for something and normalizing the car properly. At this point I'm stuck on what to do next. Should I change the fuel pressure sensor? Smoke thevacuum hoses? Or just continue to drive it as is with CEL on for next year and a half until I get the amount owned left on the finance of the vehicle to get rid of it without getting killed financially. I have a mechanic friend who is helping me out with troubleshooting and I cannot afford to take this to a dealership for repair, but I feel like we are close to getting this squared away and just need to either fix a hose or replace a sensor and we will be home. Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
Car stalled out and electronic malfunction light came on
Fault code P0420 is common in Audi's. And it refers to an inefficient catalytic converter. However, I have found that the fix for this fault code is seldom the catalyst itself but rather replacing the oxygen sensor.
I was hoping that someone could expand a bit on what they have read or seen in their experiences with Audi's? Thank you all and have a great day.
Back up. And now if my heat is on and I get hot so I'll turn it off and if turn on again won't come back in right away
my car went into the emergency gearbox.
the interesting and the computerized diagnosis not detected the fault.
the pilot sometimes stops flashing.
made the revision on the Dealers AUDI, the change of oils and all in August, I am now with 93333km.
last two months came up this problem worse and submetir the diagnosis in 2 different workshops.
how they can help and understand how to solve this problem
I just bought this audi and the battery light flickers on the dash and the air bag light is on it drives fine and I noticed the oil gauge on the dash doesn't move much
I got the car from auction. It did not indicate these issues. Odometer and speedometer does not work. Break lights are on after i got the rotar changed. ABS and Engine lights are all on? Other than all this the car runs fine
my audi doesnt have spark plug wires. my engine is described as coil on plug ( COP) ignition do not used ignition spark plug wires and i already replace the ignition coils and spark plugs and still have the same issues like it describes Symptoms of Wear or Failure
**The engine may be hard to start or not start at all
**Engine may run roughly
**Lack of power on acceleration
**Check Engine Light illuminate and/or flash.
so what should i do to fix my audi??
Also it is a Manuel transmission and a S line. Car runs well otherwise and I'd like to keep it as long as possible but not if its a huge waste of money. Thanks
My ac wouldn't work at first at all then we got it to cut on none of the bottom as will work it won't cut off an all it blows out is hot air!
I'm having trouble locating the vehicle speed sensor on the 04 audi a4 automatic, help!
Leak when it was parked then later that evening I checked leak stopped
What caused it
Car ran hot once and I had it towed to shop I was informed it was a coolant outlet flange busted. But they could not tell me if engine is blown until this piece is repaired 1st.
a mechanic said we could have problems with the transmission and the water pump it seems some of gears are not working correctly and advise us not to drive the car but when we pick up the car from him it seems ok so we are confused can you advise us what to do and if those are the problems how much could cost. thank you .Sonia
When I start my car (doesn't happen all the time) my check engine light and epc light pop on with car struggling to idle. If I hit the gas slightly they go off and everything is fine. I have taken it to dealership, my husband has hooked it up to code reader and it throws no codes! Not sure what it is or how to fix it, obviously it's not right. Any advise?
Wheels vibrate when driving at a high rate of speed. But the steering wheel doesn't vibrate.
