At Accelerate Automotive, we're well-versed in the unique intricacies of European vehicles, particularly Audi. In our experience, we've encountered a variety of issues, some more common than others. Below, you'll find a list of frequent faults we see with these vehicles.

Are you experiencing any of these problems with your Audi? Don't hesitate to contact us — we're here to provide expert assistance and solutions.

  • Timing Chain and Tensioner Failure: This issue, marked by unusual engine noises like rattling or ticking, especially during startup or while driving, and reduced engine performance, is prevalent in several Audi models. Commonly affected are Audi A4, A5, Q5, and TT models equipped with the 2.0 TFSI engine, often having engine codes such as "CAEB," "CCTA," or "CBFA."
  • High-Pressure Fuel Pump Failure: Symptoms include engine misfires, loss of power, hesitation during acceleration, and a check engine light. This fault is frequently observed in Audi A3, A4, A6, and TT models with the 2.0 TFSI engine, bearing engine codes like "CAEB," "CCTA," or "CBFA."
  • Carbon Build-Up: Indicated by rough idling, decreased engine performance, and potential misfires, along with a check engine light. This issue is often found in Audi models with direct injection engines, such as the A4, A5, A6, and Q5, particularly those with the 2.0 TFSI (engine codes "CAEB," "CCTA," "CBFA") and 3.2 FSI engines.
  • Oil Leaks from the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV): This can lead to reduced oil levels and poor engine lubrication. Audi models like the A4, A5, Q5, and TT with the 2.0 TFSI (engine codes "CAEB," "CCTA," "CBFA") and the A6 and A8 with the 3.2 FSI and 4.2 FSI engines (codes like "BKH," "BAR") are known to experience this issue.
  • DSG Transmission Issues: Including jerky shifts and delayed gear engagement. Commonly affected Audi models include the A3 and TT with the S-Tronic (DSG) transmission, particularly those with the 2.0 TFSI (engine codes "CAEB," "CCTA," "CBFA") and TDI engines. The prevalent DSG types are the 6-speed DQ250 and 7-speed DQ500 transmissions.
  • EGR Valve Issue: This affects engine performance and emission levels. Models like the Audi A3, A4, and Q5 with 2.0L TDI engines (codes like "CBEA," "CJAA") frequently face these problems.
  • Excessive Oil Consumption: Mainly due to design and component flaws in certain engines. Audi models such as the A4, A5, A6, Q3, and Q5, particularly those with TFSI engines like the EA888 (codes "CCTA," "CBFA") and FSI engines, are known to experience this. The issue is also seen in 2.0L TDI engines (codes like "CBEA," "CJAA").
  • Water Pump Failures: Affecting the efficiency of the cooling system. This issue is prevalent in Audi models like the A4, A5, A6, Q3, Q5, and TT, particularly those with the 2.0L TFSI engines (codes "CCTA," "CBFA") and the 3.2 FSI engines.
