2009 Audi A4 Problems

Decreased Power and Fuel Economy from Carbon Buildup

The 2006-2017 Audi A4 2.0FSI, 2.0TFSI, and 3.2FSI are subject to carbon buildup inside the engine causing power loss, check engine light, and a rough idle. In normal vehicles, the engine is cleaned by the gasoline flowing through, however, these cars use direct injection so gasoline is rerouted away from common carbon buildup areas. 

Possible engine codes include: P0300P0301P0302P0303P0304, P0305, P0306.

The solution is to remove the intake manifold and professionally clean the intake manifold, intake ports on the cylinder head, and the intake valves. This may need to be done in as few as 20,000 miles. 

Various Probelms Caused by Clogged Plenum Tray Drain

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.

Engine Oil Leaks

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