Audi Q7 Problems
An engine misfire may be noted after cold start resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light. Our technicians tell us updated powertrain control module (PCM) software is available to correct this concern.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a knock sensor code stored. Our technicians tell us a revised knock sensor and bracket should be installed, along with heat shielding material to protect the new sensor, to correct this condition.
Uneven ride height and/or tilting of the vehicle may be caused by one or more stuck closed residual pressure holding valves. A service bulletin from Audi describes how to properly test these valves. Any valve failing this functional test should be replaced.

Audi Q7 Recalls
The fuel rail is a tube that carries fuel to the fuel injectors. The fuel rail may leak, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel rail and corresponding seals to correct this concern.
Oil from the engine may leak into the power brake booster, causing internal damage to the diaphragm. This would result in loss of power brake assistance. Dealers will replace a vacuum line free of charge to resolve the concern.
The power operated rear hatch uses gas struts to assist in its opening and also includes a manual close function. If one of the hatch supports were to fail, the software may interpret the slow movement as manual operation and replace the motor clutch. If this were to happen, the hatch would fall, increasing the rick of personal injury. Dealers will update the necessary software to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on September 14, 2007. The Audi recaqll number is JV.
