Audi A4 Problems

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.

Oil Leaks From Camshaft Chain Tensioner and Valve Cover Gaskets

Engine oil leaks are common from the valve cover gaskets and camshaft chain tensioner gasket.
