The 5 Most Common Audi Repairs

Audis are great cars to own; Not only are they attractive, but they also have well-designed interiors, are ergonomically comfortable, and equipped with the latest technology. However, like all cars, they’ll require their fair share of maintenance and repairs to function correctly. While it is true that proper car maintenance helps reduce the car’s susceptibility to repairs, no car can boast an immunity to repair issues. Below are five of the most common repairs that we see for Audi’s.

  1. Ignition Coil

The ignition coil failure is one of the most common reasons to repair an Audi. The “Check Engine” light indicates this fault. When driving, you may also notice it.

The ignition coil is the most integral part of the whole ignition system. It performs the following roles – it supplies the engine spark that kickstarts the engine’s air-fuel mixture.

Most engine misfire causes are as a result of a blown coil. Also, while accelerating and you notice a sudden loss of power, it is likely linked to a malfunctioning coil.

  1. Collision Repairs

Road accidents have unfriendly costs for all road users involved. Minor damage to the fender bender of an Audi can use you a vast sum running to thousands of dollars to fix if the car is a luxury vehicle like the Audi.

Collision repairs are a common cause of car repairs for all cars, not just the Audi. If you need to do a collision repair for your Audi, it is highly recommendable to bring it to a professional auto shop that specializes in collision repairs and removal of unseen damages.

  1. Clogged Plenum Tray Drains

Clogged Drains is another major cause of Audi repair. Many Audi owners have reported bad experiences with the clogged plenum tray drains, especially owners of the Audi A4 car model.

Clogged drains mean that water can enter the vehicle in places where it can inflict damage on the car. Electrical issues in the Audi are majorly the result of a clogged drain.

Older versions of Audis older than 2010 that have clocked more than 100 thousand miles are more likely to experience clogged drains than newer versions.

  1. Water Pump Failure

Another common cause of Audi repair is water pump failure. If this happens and the can runs for an extended period, the engine can overheat, and this will, in turn, result in severe damage to the timing belt of the case. The cost of repairing the timing belt and engine is very much on the high side.

  1. Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR)

EGR failure is common in Audis. It performs the function of reducing the nitrogen oxide emissions by recirculating part of the exhaust gas back. It is responsible for reducing the temperature in the combustion chamber of the Audi. A failure to EGR means a blockage of normal exhaust flow.
