Common Audi Engine Problems

  • Busted Timing Chains: Audi’s EA888 2.0-liter engine has a history of tensioner problems that affect its timing chain. The loose chain can lead to catastrophic engine failure. Audi has had to offer settlement offers, including an extended warranty, due to this issue.
  • Start-Stop Defects: There are multiple problems with Audi’s start-stop technology that outweigh the modest fuel efficiency gains. Owners complain that the system will shut off the power steering and brake systems at dangerous times and cause the acceleration to be unpredictable.
  • Turbocharged Oil Sludge: From 1997-2005, Audi 1.8-liter turbocharged engines came with a tiny 3.7 quart oil capacity. This small amount of oil had trouble cooling down the hot engine. In 2004, following numerous sludge complaints, Audi extended the warranty on some of these engines.
  • Excessive Oil Consumption: It’s normal for cars with six-figure odometer readings to burn a little oil. However, some Audi engines require a topping off of the oil reservoir in between changes, which is not typical. Audi has tried to normalize this issue, but it remains a common complaint among owners.
  • Oil Starved Turbochargers: The twin-turbochargers in Audi’s 4.0L V8 engine can become starved of oil because of a clogged filter. This can cause strange acceleration noises, difficulty starting the engine, or sudden stalls.

Each of these problems can be serious, but at GT Imports Automotive Repair, we have the expertise to diagnose and fix them, helping you keep your Audi in top condition.
