We received a 2000 Audi A6 V8 with a Check Engine Light on. The vehicle did have a rough idle. We downloaded the codes and found codes: P0300, P0301,P0302, P0303, P0304, P1114, P1340. We noticed that all the miss fires where on the passengers' side of the vehicle. We recommended removal of the valve covers and inspection of the camshaft chain adjusters. We found that the passengers' camshaft chain adjuster had completely failed. And that the drives' side adjuster was weak and about to fail.

If it is not, it will get sucked or bounce back into the turbo and destroy the impeller and obviously void any warranty on the part. We have heard of this happening many times, even at the Audi and Volkswagen dealerships. Luckily we are smart enough to learn from other's mistakes. Here are some pictures of a 2005 Audi A4 Quattro, the shaft snapped off of the exhaust side of the turbo and the nut on the intake side shot into the bottom of the inter cooler. We had to remove the intercooler and get all of the debris out. If you need Audi service or repair in the Temecula/ Murrieta area just give is a call or swin ... read more
