White smoke coming from exaust of Audi 80 2.0, had recent oil change

May 31st, 2012 · No Comments

- White smoke after the engine is warm would be water condensing, i.e probably cylinder head gasket failiure. there are other things butthis would be first on my list, check coolant level.

- If it’s white it usually just means the car is cold. Sometimes mine will do it if the water is low.

Audi A4s wheels are always loaded in brake dust

May 31st, 2012 · No Comments

- Not much. Several car designers have done this with the wheels. It looks bad. Change in brake shoes may slow it down. But you will be cleaning wheels for the rest of your ownership for sure.

- you can limit your break dust by using ceramic pads.

Besides the water pump what else on 1998 Audi A4 could be causing overheating?

May 13th, 2012 · No Comments

- Water pumps rarely cause overheating. A water pump is just a shaft, bearing, and impeller, and for it to cause overheating the impeller would have to come loose or break, which is pretty rare. Failures are usually related to the bearing wearing out and causing a leak or causing the shaft/pulley to break loose. It’s much more likely that there is a problem with the thermostat, radiator, etc, or that coolant is low due to a leak.

Advice on a gearbox problem on Audi

May 13th, 2012 · No Comments

I’ve a 5 year old Audi A3 1.8t Quattro. It’s done about 34K miles and is in pretty good nick. The problem is that over the last 2 or 3 months, when changing up from 1st to 2nd gear under slightly harder than normal acceleration (i.e., pulling away from an uphill junction, or flooring it to get up to speed on the motorway – or just flooring it) it crunches as if the clutch were not fully engaged. In fact I thought it was me not fully pressing the clutch and ignored it. The problem continued and I was careful to ensure the clutch was fully employed. On a trip at the weekend I noticed that the problem had also started occurring in 3rd as well. Monday morning I booked it in at my local garage and it’s due to go in tomorrow. Of course since I’ve done that the gearbox has been as smooth as anything – for the first time in months!

How to top up automatic transmission fluid on Audi A6?

May 13th, 2012 · No Comments

- As stated you top up through the diptube, usually located at the rear of the engine. There may not be a dipstick in the tube and it may have a tamperproof cap fitted, may be better taking to a garage if you don’t have the correct workshop tool (dipstick) as you will be guessing at the correct level.
