Hi, I'm new here I just did full service to my car (60k miles) and I've noticed a leak at the back of a gearbox. Maybe someone can help me to find out what happened. Gearbox oil changed at 40k miles at Audi Hull UK. Do I have to take out whole gearbox or just the back part? What could be the cost to fix it? Do I have to change gearbox oil again? Thanks
H All, Would value the community opinion. I know what I should do but not what I want too! Bought a 2009 1.8 Audi A3 s line convertible 2 weeks ago. I love it! Cruse control, Leather seats 18inch rims and all for £6k .55,000 miles on the clock (around 2k under parkers guide).FSH Basically love the car until.........Oil light has come on! put 1ltr of oil in and then 600 miles later oil light is on again. Now im speaking to audi as this was on watchdog and they will fix this free of charge as its a known engine fault (Piston rings are to tight) 9 out of 10 times supply a new engine. Thinking I would take the risk as I can still return it with 30 days but then this morning the coolant light has come on too! on checking has low coolant. Could just be not checked by the dealer? Coolant looks clear and there are no drips under the car. Took about 1/2 a pint to bring up to max So my issue do I a.) Keep the car and get dealer/ Audi to pay for all of the repairs needed and hope nothing else goes wrong b.) cut my losses and return the car and get a car not as spec'ed As said I love the car and really want to keep it but I dont want to be stuck with a turkey that will cost me ££££ in the long run. If i get a new engine whats the worst that can happen??
Hi, New here, but thought I'd ask for some much needed advice. I've had an engine oil leak for up to a year. It doesn't lose much. I just add a really small amount about once a fortnight - but it is a little annoying especially when the oil drips on to wet ground and spreads out on a driveway. And it's covering quite a bit of the car's underside. So I looked into getting it fixed... Been quoted by an Audi dealer over £1200. They say it's the rear crank oil seal, sump seal and oil filter housing. But when I rang another car repair place quite a knowledgeable-sounding person said he was surprised all three things had gone at once. So, does a problem with all three sound reasonable? I'd very much appreciate any opinions on this, thanks.
