Question about 2006 Audi A4
I called Audi service and technician told me that they dropped the cover starting 2005. Why would they do that? They charge $150 to install the battery, so maybe this is the reason for it. Now if it is raining the water goes through the battery under the hood. Don't you think that this affects the battery's lifespan and performance?
I checked prices at a large parts store chain, and they had 3 battery choices for your car, 2 were $150, and a 3rd was $90. Was the $150 u mentioned for installation only? I'm wondering what they charged for the battery? I' m not familiar w/ the location of the battery in your car (some GM models are located under the rear seat!). Any rain entering the engine compartment (there shouldn't be much due to gaskets/weather stripping around the hood), would not harm the battery. Actually, heat is an enemy of the battery, and it's plenty hot under the hood, so in theory, any rain that did enter and contact the battery would be good, as it would have a cooling affect. Eliminating the cover may have been done as a way to dissipate heat. Let me know where the battery is located, as it may be someplace unique, but if it's under hood like most cars, rain is not an issue. I do want to know what the total cost of the battery was, and if I understand correctly that $150 was for installation, not the cost of the battery.

SOURCE: Oil for 2007 AUDI A4 2.0t Quatro
The best balance of price, quality, availability that I have found is Mobil1 synthetic - it's on Audi's approved oils list. With the 2.0T engine, you absolutely want to use synthetic (the Audi turbo fours are known for oil sludge issues), and you want to do a SeaFoam treatment every 15k miles or so - that combination will keep your engine in great running shape.

I know it sounds funny, but check the air flow sensor. They had issues on all models with 100 and 130 bhp turbocharged diesels from audi/volkswagen.

SOURCE: ABS and ESP lights on
The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP & ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP & ABS system is faulty. You must access the ESP & ABS Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car (placed in dashboard, under a plastic cover above the ashtray). Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP & ABS ECU, in other words reset the ESP & ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

Replace the actuation solenoid as this unit can be affected by dampness.
Quick way around this as a fast fix is diconnect the vac line to the EGR valve and plug with a screw or pencil. This will stop the valve from opening thus filling the inlet manifold with oxygen starved air i.e exhaust fumes.
Car with then drive normally. Solenoid referred to as N239.
