Audi is constantly developing new technologies for their cars and our mechanics at Executive Automotive continue to stay updated in order to provide quality service and repairs. If you’re like many Audi owners, you take pride in your German wonder of engineering. But at the end of the day, these high-performance machines are just that: high-performance machines. And like all other machines, they need to be kept in good condition.
That being said, issues will pop up in your prized Audi. Some of the problems are faced by Audi vehicles in particular but experienced maintenance professionals take care of these issues so your car continues to make you smile.
Here are some of the common Audi repair issues that many owners face:
Catalytic Converter Replacement
Keeping with the highest environmental compliance standards, Audi has fitted its vehicles with catalytic converters to reduce harmful exhaust emissions. The catalytic converters do clog and choke up from time to time. The carbon in the exhaust gases solidifies and blocks the route of the exhaust gases.
Electrical Component Failure
This is a common repair issue with Audi. Many owners that get electrical problems usually experience a failure of the digital dashboard and console. They say that they face erratic lights and that sometimes, the tail lamps fail to operate. There is a very simple fix to these issues. Replacing the failed parts with genuine OEM replacements is the best fix for these electrical component failure problems.
Spark Plug and Ignition Coil Failure
When it comes to mechanical problems with Audi vehicles, spark plug, and ignition coil failures top the list. It is a short list in itself, however. The main reason behind an Audi engine misfiring is the sparkplug and ignition coil failure.
The best way to do away with this problem is the installation of OEM spark plugs and ignition coils. But that’s only half of it. The other half involves having a professional technician tune your engine to factory specifications.
EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation)
EGR is used to reduce the presence of nitrogen oxides in petrol and diesel engines, to lower engine temperatures. Some of the exhaust gases are “recycled” back to the engine cylinders. If this system stops working correctly in your Audi, your “check engine’ light turns on and you notice a considerable drop in performance. It may also result in greater wear and tear if left unchecked.
