  1. Hello all, New member here! I’ve been looking for a while and found a 2010 Audi A5 2.0 TFSI Q in my budget with the exact specifications I want. 1 owner, excellent milage and great condition. Full Audi SH apart from the last service done by the dealer. I paid for an AA inspection which found an oil leak in the front engine (he said maybe it’s the front cam shaft sensor?). The dealer agreed to get this fixed before I buy the car. Looking at the service history, 30,000 miles ago it seems like Audi did a consumption test as a leak was cleaned and the owner was asked to return
  2. Hey guys I just bought an Audi A4 Avant 1.8TFSI S line this Monday😁 I have a few problems and just wanted some advice from you guys so hopefully I can get some help if you don’t mind! When going onto Engine Oil Level the screen displays that the information isn’t available has anyone had this problem before I assume it maybe and oil sensor problem but I am uncertain? My Xenon headlight o/s says dipped headlight isn’t working and sometimes the light just appears on is this a loose connection and is there a link on fixing this? Lastly, when the engine is started it seems to
  3. Just had my Q3 serviced. The documentation indicates that Castrol GTX 5w-30 has been used for the replacement engine oil. The service interval on my car is set for 'Audi Long Life Servicing'. Is GTX a suitable oil for this longer service period?
  4. Recently noticed a thick build up of yellow gunk under the oil cap of my audi a3 1.6 (2000) and it smells of petrol within the oil. The dip stick is clean and has no signs of mayo gunk. The car still starts up perfect with no signs of smoke and runs smooths with no over heating problems. Have a gut feeling it's head gasket but would appreciate anyone's help. Thanks.
  5. Hi 22/08/17 just noticed my coolient leave way below min and oil light recently went off. My mate suggested possible head gasket. I hope !Removed! not as I have had the car in and out of Audi the last two years (including 2017 like a yo yo). March 2017 Audi replaced my rocker cover gasket at a huge cost £500 +. I always keep my eye on temperature all normal, no milky oil on oil cap, no white smoke generally or idling (maybe sometimes when I floor it but not 100% sure white smoke?) Worse case scenario if it is head gasket how much can I expec
  6. Hi, would like to know if I can use Shell helix ultra 5w-30 professional AG in my car?
  7. Hi all, I am looking to buy a Audi A5 2.0 tfsi soon. However I am aware of the oil consumption issues with these engines. My question is, what percentage are actually effected? Will I have a good chance of getting one that hasn’t got the oil issues? Or should I just walk away from it? the car has full service history, but has been recently done by a garage for the past few years and not Audi themselves. If it needs a rebuilt engine will Audi not pay out due to the service history? i am just looking peoples experiences with these engines to get an idea and if you had a rebuild
  8. Hi all, I just got my second handed A4 Avant 2008 2.0T Manual for 2 weeks from a local car dealer. Out of sudden, the car told me that I need to fill the oil. Now I am asking, is it possible to ask the car dealer to fill the oil for me, concerning the very short period I bought the car from them. If not, can you recommend any types of oil? And is it safe for the engine to be working with the mixed new oil with those oil which were already there? Cheers for any information.
  9. Alright guys, Hope someone on here can help me with this problem I’ve been trying to solve as I’m really stuck. So when it was snowing a few weeks back unfortunately I hit a mound of snow and it disconnected the oil level sensor plug…. Which was then dragged along the ground for about 20 miles before I had chance to look underneath properly. Immediately after the plug was cracked but we managed to reconnect it and the warning light went out, but a couple days later it managed to fall out and completely destroyed itself. I’ve so far bought another 3 pin Bosch plug fr
  10. Just bought Coupe but have no owner manual. On turning on ignition large warning light at top of cluster displays what look like a yellow light bulb then changes to red oil can. Oil is topped up as far as I can see but not sure what this is indicating with manual. Any info would be appreciated.
  11. Dear Audi uk I have written and spoken to you many times re the vehicle Audi A4 2.0T TFSI. An ongoing constant issues I have mentioned to Audi uk in the past is the several engine oil level low warning lights, between Audi services. I have owned the vehicle since August 2015 I have had two Audi Services one major and one minor so far. The issue is between services the engine oil level low warning lights come on maybe on average three separate occasions, through the twelve months and when I check the dip stick
  12. Hi guys, I've damaged my oil filter cap by over tightening it.. Anyone know where to buy a new from? I can't find anywhere that does! Cheers
  13. Months ago I had oil too up due to a cracked oil collier. 16/08/17 oil light came on I checked under car no leaks or anything obvious to save something's wrong. I checked dip stick an In fact it's on minimum oil level. Current mileage 104514. I've emailed the Audi centre for dates and mileage 1) so I can see what I've done since last oil change and 2) to see if this is normal oil useage for a 2 litre tfsi?
  14. Hello, I seem to have oil leaking from below my alternator. I'd checked the belt a week or so ago so it's a recent development. My concern is it could lead to the belt slipping and/or coming off which is a real pain in the backside. I snapped a few photos, has anyone had a similar issue? Any advice on where this is coming from would be great, I can't see the source because whatever it is, is below the alternator. The underside is covered and because of the belt it's also sprayed about a bit. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hiya all. I'm a long time lurker as am looking to replace my BMW Z4 with something with four seats and a gigantic boot to do some motorway mile munching. A manual, 2010 Audi A6 looks perfect (those interiors are amazing) and potentially looking to buy a 2.0 TFSI A6 this weekend. However, the question I wanted to ask is if the A6 2.0 TFSI engines are similarly affected by the oil issue. I haven't seen any mention of this as the affected models seem to be A4,s A5s and Q5s but have never heard of an A6 being affected. Has anyone heard if 2010 A6 TFSIs are also affected and if not, why no
  16. Dear motoring world and all those concerned, my Audi problems. December 2014 I purchased car 1 privately a 2005 Audi A4 B7 2.0T s line tfsi on 92k miles, full Audi service history. I paid a reputable mechanic I’d used for eight years to change water pump, timing belt change and a full service. On date 6/5/15 car 1 while stuck in slow moving traffic in south London the car engine failed randomly with no warning on Mileage 95k, vehicle towed to mechanic. Mechanic informed me reason for failure Audi part known to commonly fail on
  17. Hi Guys, So, I decided to put an aftermarket CAT BACK exhaust on my S3 8V and for 1000 miles it was amazing, truly amazing. Then suddenly, as I was about to embarrass a Vauxhall Corsa on the M1, my amazing S3 turned into a quivering wreck, EPC light on and power seemingly completely off along with the turbo. The sound of the car suddenly became very muffled and quiet. And the famously exquisite DSG !Removed!/ pop on upshift, well that sounded more like my nan plumping the cushions, flat, quiet and void of any substance. I took the car into Audi and they said "its because you p
  18. Here's my observations about my car I use as a daily driver to work. (bought august 2015 still learning about the car as have owned less then two years with various repairs done re engine namely bottom part of engine replaced due to oil chain pump failure) so not had a clear run yet: Around three months ago I gave my car to Audi chingford for a full service after getting it back shortly after (maybe four weeks) the oil light came on to my shock. I panicked as when I checked indeed it was on minimum oil level. I thought I mite have a leak. On further internet research I saw certain
  19. Hi I just joined here own an Audi A4 2 litre tfsi two in total ever. My 1st was a year 2005 2 litre tfsi 200bhp A4 current year 2007 same vehicle but the 220bhp Quattro special edition version. I Had numerous problems with both mainly OIL CHAIN PUMP failure (both went around 88k) resulting in major engine rebuild costing me thousands of pounds and putting me into major debt.

  20. What type of each of the fluids should I buy for my car?
  21. Hello, first post but I really need your help and advice please, I have an A6 2.0 TDi on a 58 plate with full service history , its done approx 127k miles. Recently I was driving locally when the oil pressure 'turn off' came up and I had to have the car taken to a local garage whom I usually use. He says the job is too big for him and I have to take it to Audi (lindale) . On speaking to them they say (without even examining it) its likely to be a 4 to 5 thousand pound repair! What on earth has happened ? The car is around 8 years old with FSH, its probably worth 5-6k so Im stuck at
  22. I have an Audi A4 - 2007 plate, with a 2l Turbo TFSI petrol engine, 100k miles, and my oil level goes down from the maximum mark on the dipstick down to the minimum mark after about 2,500 miles - then it needs topping up with about 1 litre of oil.Is this normal consumption or the beginning of a problem?James
  23. I was recently informed, that my Auto gearbox needed an oil change every 40K miles to maintain the integrity and warranty. On presenting the car to an Audi garage, they informed me the gearbox is sealed for life!! Is this true?? I can't believe the oil doesn't need to be changed...ever?!?! Cheers
  24. Hi, I own a audi a4 2009 1.8 petrol model. It has 40k milage and im having problems with its oil consumption. The yellow warning light on the dash appears, signalling low oil but still ok to drive. I had a replacement oil sensor fitted (advised by garage) however the light continued to come back on. The garage mentioned that it is low on oil and i should seek professional advice from the dealer. On a full tank of oil i get 600 miles untill the warning light reappears. This has happened three times now and currently audi have replaced the filters and oil to perform a consumption test. I don'
