Repair: Audi timing belt replacement is a complex job that needs to be performed by experienced, highly skilled Audi trained technicians.
Audi S Tronic Transmission Service
Problem: Your Audi's transmission fluid acts as both a lubricant and coolant for your transmission. Wear and tear breaks down the viscosity of transmission fluid, making it less effective and potentially causing damage to transmission components. To make sure your gear changes remain seamless, your transmission fluid should be changed according to your vehicle service schedule.
Repair: Audi S Tronic Transmission Oil Change. The Audi S Tronic transmission is designed to give you outstanding performance. To ensure the continuous smooth operation of your Audi transmission it is strongly recommended that the oil is changed every 38,000 miles.
Audi Brake Fluid Change
Problem: Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture from the air over time. Brake fluid moisture contamination reduces the temperature at which the brake fluid boils. Lower brake fluid boiling temperature will result in increased stopping distance, reduced braking efficiency, and even brake component failure due to internal corrosion.
Repair: Brake fluid should be checked and replaced every 2 years. Consult your service manual, or phone us and we can check the manufacturer's service recommendations.

Audi No Start after Refueling and Popping Noise from Trunk
Problem: Popping sounds from rear of the vehicle may be heard moments after starting the engine, or when slowing to a stop. Noise is from the leak detection pump filling the fuel tank with air, and releasing to retest the system when it finds a fault. The sequence of faults identifying this issue are as follows:
- Succession of loud pops from rear of vehicle;
- Pop noises go away, and fuel economy decreases;
- Check engine light on;
- OBD trouble code P2404 and/or P0441 is stored;
- Engine hard to start after refueling (must crank for over 30 seconds);
- Vibration when slowing to a stop;
The cause is a valve which is mounted on the front of the intake manifold, commonly called the N80 valve, or EVAP system purge valve. The valve is designed to open under specific circumstances, but a worn valve will remain open at all times, preventing the pressurization of the fuel tank.
Repair: Audi N80 EVAP system purge valve replacement.
Audi Lack of Power
Problem: Audi lack of power issue. Check Engine Light on with various throttle system fault codes. Generally caused by Audi throttle body electrical connection problems.
Repair: Audi check engine light diagnosis, Audi wiring harness repair. Audi tune up service.

Audi Engine No Start
Problem: No start condition with check engine light error code for fuel pressure sensor failure.
Repair: Audi fuel pressure sensor replacement.
Audi High Pressure Fuel Pump Failure
Problem: Audi check engine light, engine running roughly, and Audi loss of power. Some Audi models use direct fuel injection which requires very high fuel pressure. This high fuel pressure is produced by a high pressure mechanical fuel pump (HPFP) that is driven from the camshaft. The HPFP may fail due to damage from a defective camshaft. The defect causes abnormal wear of the mechanical barrier between the camshaft and the fuel pump. This barrier, the cam follower, will wear down and cause failure of the camshaft and the HPFP. Associated Check Engine Light codes may be P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0087, P1093 and P2293. To help prevent Audi High Pressure Fuel Pump Failure from occurring the cam follower should be inspected every 10,000 to 15,000 miles.
Repair: Audi camshaft replacement, Audi high-pressure fuel pump replacement, and/or Audi cam follower replacement.
Audi model years affected: 2006, 2007, 2008 Audi 2.0L 4 Cylinder.
Audi Loss of Power
Problem: Audi Turbo Pressure Diverter Valve Diaphragm failure. The Audi 2.0T FSI and Audi 2.0TFSI engine lose power if the turbocharging system has a leak. The most common turbo boost leak is a torn turbo diverter valve diaphragm, which regulates turbo charger pressure. Common problems are increased Audi turbo noise when letting off of the gas pedal, Audi power loss, and Audi engine code P0234.
Repair: Audi turbocharge system inspection, and defective turbo seals and/or Audi turbo diverter valve replacement.
