All vehicles need repairs at one time or another and Audi is no exception. The hoses, gaskets and belts will deteriorate over the life of the car no matter the make or model, however, the refinement of German engineering means higher costs in repairs and replacement parts. In order to maintain performance, be sure you have the repair and maintenance budget appropriate for these vehicles. Items such as the clutch, brakes and tires experience wear and tear over time. Keeping up with these repairs can save time and money in the long run. Some of the most common repairs our technicians see are:
Audi engine oil leaks are common, particularly from the valve cover gaskets. Even a small oil leak can result in major engine damage and costly repairs. It’s important to be diligent about regular oil changes, especially if you have a GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) or TDI (Turbo Direct Injection), with high quality oil and filters. If your check engine light is illuminated or you smell oil burning, be sure to bring your Audi to Pickering’s Auto Service right away for a proper diagnosis and repairs.
The CV axles on your Audi are covered by a rubber boot that keeps grease in and dirt out of the CV joint. Once grease begins to leak from the boot, the CV joint will begin to wear out and eventually fail. If you notice a loud clicking or popping noise, especially when turning corners, it’s a symptom of a worn out CV joint. Our ASE Certified technicians will inspect the axle boots during your routine Audi maintenance visits. However, if you notice any issues between visits, be sure to contact Pickering’s Auto Service right away.
Cooling System Leaks
The plastic components that make up your engine’s cooling system will eventually become brittle, allowing coolant to leak out. Replacing these parts is a relatively low-cost repair, especially compared to the damaged caused by an overheated engine, with the possibility of being stranded or stalled in traffic! If you notice green liquid leaking from your Audi or a high temperature gauge reading, be sure to bring your vehicle to Pickering’s for a proper diagnosis and repairs.
Power & Voltage Issues
The alternator and battery are the electrical supply for the entire vehicle. If you notice an illuminated battery light or your Audi won’t start, it’s a sign the alternator may not be charging your vehicle’s battery properly. Ask a friend or neighbor to help jump start your vehicle and bring it to a Pickering’s ASE Certified technician right away for repairs.
Damaged or worn spark plugs will put strain on the ignition coils eventually causing them to fail. If your Audi is backfiring or misfiring, it may mean your ignition coils are failing. Bring your Audi to Pickering’s Auto Service for maintenance and repairs right away before more serious exhaust problems can occur.
The catalytic converter in your Audi is responsible for safe exhaust emissions. If it becomes clogged or damaged, you may notice a drop in fuel efficiency or lower over-all performance in your Audi. While the cost of replacing a catalytic converter can be high, it’s essential to keeping your Audi in top performance.
