FWIW - I think this was maybe water in the fuel? Just after I posted this, I went out and drove and the car "bucked" twice, for now reason. I've had this happen periodically once or twice a year. I investigated it heavily in the past, but found nothing wrong, and no errors anywhere. So I...
2014 A6, V6 3.0 CPNB, 186,000 miles
My car just started doing this within the past week.
Twice, on a restart, after sitting a half hour or so, the car will crank for several seconds before it fires up. Battery was new 6 months ago. It doesn't happen every time, so far only after...
To be clear, when the filter is OUT, you are looking at the dirty side. When the filter is in place and all you see is the foam rubber gasket and the hole in the middle, the clean side is in that hole - don't pour into the hole.
You do not need to refill the housing. Just key the car on and...
I inquired about this at the dealer before buying a replacement car for my 2013 Passat TDI. I was hoping to buy a NOS 2015 after some short delay of a few months or so.
Sales manager told me that the 2015 TDI needs new hardware, and that they are told the fix is at least 1 year away. They are...
This has been confirmed to me by 2 dealers now. The VW dealer I bought my Passat from, and the Audi dealer in another state I just bought my new (used) A6 TDI from.
3rd party person placed at the dealership. Minimal requirements for condition as specified in the settlement. VWoA will own...
I did something similar on our 2001 Passat. I had the brown waxy flakes from mixed coolant. I used an inline strainer I bought from Grainger. It is apparently designed for pumps used on boats. The screen worked well, but clogged pretty quickly.
I'm also considering an A6. My wife is saying "buy" right now....
But I am thinking about price. Supply is low right now, but uncertainty is high. What will the price do when there essentially becomes a glut of TDI A6 available? Supply will be very high.
Right now there are only 2 or 3...
I am worried that my new, very nice A6 will have the same issues our Passat's have.
Clogged heater cores
Malfunctioning temperature control door
DEF heater failure
exhaust flap failure
Driver door lock module failure
I want a diesel sedan, and really a fan of...
I have briefly searched, but have not exactly found the answers I need. I just worked a week of 12 to 14 hour days, so trying to get other parts of my life caught up.
I'm assuming one of you is better tuned-in to the settlement than am I.
I am planning to sell back my 2013 Passat TDI...
FWIW - I received that update after my turbo failed and I noticed no difference in Adblue consumption. I buy a 2.5 gallon box every 3 months or so - Roughly 11,000 miles. But my driving is all highway or main roads. Never any stop and go.
