1994 Audi Cabriolet Problems

Inspection of Water Pump and Timing Belt

The water pump may fail resulting in engine overheating and possible timing belt damage. Overheating and/or timing belt failure can result in very expensive engine repairs. As a precaution, it is recommended to inspect the timing belt and water pump at regular intervals.

Engine Oil leak From Valley Pan Gasket and/or Head Gasket

An External oil leak may develop from the valley pan gasket (under the intake manifold) and/or the head gasket.

Abnormal Noise From Suspension

Various bushings—located around the subframe, suspension, and steering—deteriorate with age. A clunking noise when driving over bumps, accelerating, or stopping may be a sign of worn bushings.
