      That's great to hear.

      I'm glad to see the engine's been updated through the years, any idea on 09M improvements?

      Any experience chipping the car? The only downside to the car based on my...

      Hi,

      I'm looking at a late model Q3 for my gf. Seems like everything before 2019 is using the CCTA engine.

      Any idea if this is the 2nd generation engine? or is it the same 1st gen engine that...

      Walmart's batteries have gotten good reviews. I'm using them on a variety of cars without issue.

      The reason why replacement batteries don't last as long is because they keep decreasing the...

      Do a search on 2.0 TFSI oil pressure sensor and you'll find lots of people with similar symptoms.

      Some things you'll want to look at are:

      1. codes with VCDS
      2. oil pressure sensor
      3. PCV...

      How much does it normally cost to redo the cylinder head with all the parts and labor? Just curious since my engine has 80K+ miles with the original timing chain.

      I don't think you need to warm the engine up. In fact, it's probably better to do it cold, since the fluid hasn't expanded yet, less will spill out. You just want the engine running and then shift...

      The first change I do is usually by-the-book factory method. The next time, if the transmission shifts fine and I don't see any leaks, I just do the drain-and-measure method. It's worked for me on...

      1. You want to warm drain the fluid because you want the fluid to be suspending any small amount of dirt/metal shavings not pickedup by the filter when you drain the fluid out.

      2. The official...

      Thanks! I've had to replace the flange on my Golf before. I think it also cracked at around 10 years old. I guess they still use the same plastic that gets brittle after a while.

      BTW, how much...

      I can't speak to the 2008 FSI motors, but I had a 2009 A3 2.0, and also a 2013 A5 2.0. Both use the TSI engine. I also have a 2013 A3 with the 2.0 TDI engine.

      Biggest problem for me on the 2009...

      Do all the procedures described in the wiki and do them in the order described. I'm sure OBD Eleven should have similar functionality.

      Sounds like you performed the procedure correctly. I would just drive normal or even slightly less aggressive for a while. After all, the whole point of the DSG reset is so the computer can try...

      Driving the DSG transmission is very different from the auto or manual. I've found that I should not let off the brake all the way, as you would on an auto or manual. The best way I've found is to...

      I do not believe the timing chain is related to the water pump leaking. The water pump is under the intake manifold, whereas the timing chain is on the left side of the engine (looking at it from...

      My understanding is that a traditional torque converter transmission is called "Tiptronic" by Audi and is not offered in the A3.
