Your Audi is a sophisticated machine, and it’s important to keep it well maintained to ensure that it continues running at peak performance. At Precision Auto Care, we provide a wide range of repairs and maintenance services for Audi vehicles.
Audi vehicles are known for their high-performance engines and exceptional handling. However, like any other vehicle, Audi cars require regular maintenance and repair services to keep them running at peak performance.
Here are 5 reasons you should choose our auto repair shop for your regular Audi maintenance and repair services:
- Audi Vehicles Require Frequent Oil Changes
The reason for this is that the engines in these vehicles are turbocharged, so they use more oil than normal. This means that you will need to make sure that you change your oil every 5,000 miles or so, as recommended by Audi. If you don’t change your oil frequently enough, carbon deposits from gasoline will build up in your engine and lead to poor performance or even engine failure down the road.
- Bad Oxygen Sensors Can Cause Poor Engine Performance
If your car has an oxygen sensor failure, it could cause poor engine performance and even stall while driving down the road. The oxygen sensor monitors how much oxygen is being used by the engine during acceleration and deceleration cycles. If it fails, it won’t tell your car’s computer how much fuel should be injected into each cylinder during those cycles, which results in poor gas mileage.
- Timing Belt Replacements Are Critical
Audis use timing belts instead of timing chains like most other vehicles on the road today. The timing belt is responsible for synchronizing all of the moving parts inside the engine. It is much more durable than a chain because it doesn’t require lubrication; however, it still needs regular replacement if you want your Audi to run smoothly.
A worn or damaged timing belt can cause serious engine damage if not replaced in time. If your Audi has over 100,000 miles on the odometer and hasn’t had its timing belt replaced, make an appointment with us right away!
- Ignition Coil Problems Can Cause Rough Running or Misfiring
If your Audi starts to run rough or misfire, the ignition coils may be to blame. These components generate high voltage at the spark plugs in order to ignite the air/fuel mixture in your cylinders. If they fail, then your engine won’t be able to run properly. Our technicians will be able to diagnose the problem with your ignition coils and make the necessary repairs so you can get back on the road again in no time.
- Leaking Valve Covers or PCV Valve Grommets Can Sling Oil Everywhere
Valve covers are used to seal off each cylinder so that oil doesn’t get into it while the engine is running. There is also a PCV valve grommet that helps direct airflow into certain areas of the engine such as the air filter box and throttle body so it doesn’t blow through these areas.
Over time, valve covers can crack or leak oil onto other components under the hood of your car. This can cause serious damage if left untreated — especially if it gets onto hot surfaces such as exhaust manifolds or catalytic converters. In addition, leaking PCV valve grommets can allow harmful exhaust gases into the interior of your vehicle through vents on dashboard consoles and glove compartments.
