Audi is one of the top vehicle brands on the planet. The luxury car beats its competition hands-down when comparing safety features, handling, performance, and quality materials used in the manufacturing process. While Audis do not develop issues frequently, they are still cars and are prone to wear-n-tear. If you are an Audi owner, here are some common issues you might encounter with the car.
A vehicle's ignition coil plays a critical role in the ignition system. It is the part that generates the spark required to ignite the engine. When the coil fails, you'll notice the amber/orange 'Check Engine' light blinking. A malfunctioning ignition coil causes engine misfiring. It might also lead to loss of power during acceleration.
Despite their quality design and construction, Audis can have a malfunctioning electrical component. If you have flickering tail lamps or dim headlights, you're not alone, because most Audi owner faces similar problems. The bright side of the situation is that you can take the car to an ASE-certified auto shop to have the faulty part replaced with original auto parts.
Blocked Plenum Tray Drains
Clogged drains are an issue most commonly reported by Audi 4x4 owners. Clogged plenum drains can sometimes occur in areas where contact with water can cause huge problems. In fact, one of the first things that a technician will look at when repairing an electrical issue is whether there are clogs in the drains. They must first ensure that the drains are free from debris and particles. Clogged drains are a common issue with Audi models released before 2010, particularly those that have run more than 100,000 miles.
Worn-out Timing Belt
A well-maintained Audi operates optimally and runs smoothly without any issues. The timing belt ensures that the vehicle's camshaft and crankshaft move in synchrony. Usually, wear-n-tear is the common culprit behind a malfunctioning timing belt. Failure to remedy the problem can prove costly down the line. The problem with a torn timing belt is that the pistons become damaged. Always ensure that the timing belt is properly installed because bad installation leads to faster deterioration.
