  2. No not using any oil, it's 137,000 miles no service history, I bought it off copart and wish I hadn't bothered!!!

  4. Hi! So I have an Audi A3 2010 1.6 tfsi that keeps misfiring and shaking at idle. Normal diagnostics can’t find the cause, so if anyone in Southend has a VAGCOM would really appreciate it! Any other suggestions? tried spark plugs, coils, checked for a vac leak (none), MAF sensor cleaned too, not sure what else to look for really. It’s only a slight shudder/shake but if you put hand on engine you can feel it misfire (jerk) every few seconds, sometimes a few in a row. revs don’t dip and stay pretty steady. Any ideas/anyone in Southend/essex who has a VAGCOM And could come help me?
  5. Hello Lee, Are you selling the boot lid, or want one? If selling - price?
  6. Hi I have just purchased an 2016 Audi A4 Quattro sport auto tdi 190 s tronic and quite happy up to now. I previously owned a Audi A3 but that was a few years ago and since then had numerous cars, the last one was a Lexus is 300h. Thanks for the add

  8. I think this should certainly be part of the PDI.
  9. Here you go - an Audi A5 convertible
  10. You're welcome, this should help 🙂 https://mechanicbase.com/troubleshooting/bank1-vs-bank2/

  13. Hi, i have a pair of brand new boxed driveshafts for a cvt auto 3 litre sport cabriolet, 2003. I paid £120, but never fitted them to the car, which is now sold. I’d be happy with £60. Collect from Bromsgrove, near Birmingham or we can work out how to get them to you by carrier. please call me on 07831/290806 or brian1boxall@btinternet.com thank you, Brian boxall
  14. Hi Dan, I'm looking into buying a 2017 or newer RS6, and wondered what kind of discount or deal I could get on the insurance if I do it through the owners' club. The cheapest quotes I've found so far are around the £680 mark. Thanks very much Martyn Tarry
  15. Yep looks to becoming a common fault
  16. Thanks gareth I've looked at the servicing menu in the car and it's showing next oil service due in 8000 miles or 3 months. I've also spoken to the main dealer who wants around £200 for an oil change. I do scrupulously maintain my cars. It's done only 4000 miles since the last service so I'm going to wait a few months and see how it goes. i don't know how long I'll be keeping the car, I haven't used it enough to know whether I'll "bond" with it. If I'm bored with a car I tend to change for something else. In a few months my options will be to do it myself (not likely this time due to the warranty until February), main dealer service, or use a local German car specialist, they are also a respected Porsche specialist so not a bad alternative. It would be useful to get hold of a proper service schedule to see what should be done at each service. There's nothing in my manual.
  17. Hi need some help I need to replace my boost pressure sensor no my 2.7tdi allroad but can not find the location could anyone help me plz
  18. Hello Carl, The coolant temperature sensor will not affect the actually running temperature of the coolant i.e. the cooling system works as it should do and the operating temperature will stay at normal when up to the operating temperature. What this sensor does is to simply monitor this temperature and signal it’s varying resistance value to control the fuel mixture. Coil packs? I would expect the that if these were suspect, you would was experience missing associated with the black smoke. Injector issues?? Kind regards, Gareth.
  19. it sounds like it could be the main flap behind the motor its self listen under the glove box ,its behind the blower There's a multitude of motors controlling the heater flaps within the vents and it might be that one is sticking or otherwise not be performing as it should... If you can get the climate control panel into diagnostic mode you should be able to see if it throws up an error code which may help identify the fault. Here's a a tech resource article I've cut and pasted from the Audiworld site, its a good thing to have a copy of printed off and kept in the glovebox,lol. As well as giving diagnostic trouble-shooting codes you can also use this info to get the climate control panel to do nifty things like display your exact speed (in km/h tho). A while ago there were chancers charging 99p on Ebay for this very info,lol. Unlocking the Secrets within the Climate Control Panel Changing Degree Temperature Display Press and hold the recirculation button. Then press the temperature up ("+") button to switch between degrees Celsius & Fahrenheit on the Climate Control Temperature and Instrument Panel Outside Temperature displays. Accessing On-Board Diagnostic codes Press and hold the recirculation button. Then press the manual flow control up arrow. You should see a 1c. Press the temperature up ("+") or down ("-") buttons to select a code number. Then press the recirculation button again. The value should display. Press the temperature up or down button again to display another code. NOTE: Air Flow Motor (V 71) and Potentiometer (G 113) are not installed in USA/Canada vehicles.

  20. I think the lugs pop out don't they? They'll definitely need replacing. Cheers Steve

    Hi

    Hello and welcome and enjoy 😀
  22. Last week
  23. Its just easier for me to get the stuff from ECP at garage price not normal consumer price. And just an update from initial post i found my diameter was 54.6mm so i will be ordering the 55m shock absorber. Thanks for your help Gareth top man 👍🏽
  24. Hi, I have a 56 plate Audi A4 convertible which doesn’t get run as often as it should so I was looking at having a solar panel connected to either the cigarette lighter or the 12v port in the boot. Both sockets seem to be live when I plug in the tyre inflator even without the ignition key being in. What I don’t know is if this will charge or drain the battery? Any thoughts welcome
  25. Hiya folks just purchased my first A3, has anybody know which is the best after market stereo I can put in the car, there’s an Audi chorus there at the moment, but it’s very basic no Bluetooth, I also have steering wheel controls which do nothing on this particular model of stereo, any advice would be great
