Question about 2004 Audi TT 1.8L

Open Question

Audi car - water collecting in boot area.

I had an oil sensor display issue. Nothing wrong with car (checked by dealer). However I noted very wet floor in boot and interior boot side panel separated from above the right rear wheel arch. I couldn't get it to snap back in. The underside of the boot lid has fabric panels that are soaking. The floor of the boot is wet. The gap between the side panel I can see condensation build up on the metal of the car. All seals look in tact. Flummoxed. Audi want to charge for diagnostics on each investigation. They've already charged me loads in investigating and changing the oil sensor. Is there anything I can do or advice my local mechanic to do. Once I put fabric on floor to stop water going through and stuffed a bin bag down the side to prevent water sepage the oil sensor light turned off! Coincidence? Many thanks. M

SOURCE: 1999 Audi A4 Locking mechanism

It sounds like the vacuum pump has gone out. The locks are vacuum-pump operated, and they're known to eventually fail on these and VW cars. Check that out - in my 99, the unit is in the trunk, passenger side. You have to remove the storage well between the wheel arch and the taillight, and pull the carpeting back, and the unit is down there just a bit below floor level.

SOURCE: 2002 audi a4 oil light issue

There are potentially two different problems here.
1. A fault with the actual oil pressure.
2. An electrical fault with the switching circuit.

If you are confident the problem is not with the oil pressure, disconnect the wiring from the switch for a period of time. If the light still comes on periodically the fault must be with the wiring circuit shorting to earth. There will be no fire hazard to this approach as the voltage will drop over dash lamp.

However if the problem is with the oil supply system, the danger with this approach is you are potentially unaware of a serious problem

Such as the oil filter collapsed or the oil pressure release spring could be jammed open/closed which would cause the engine to not have the correct operating pressure.

SOURCE: Rear lid (houses top), opens only 1/4, stops, hums, and prevents roof from retracting in storage beneath lid.

As noted in one of the earlier questions on the topic, it appears (will verify for certain after the pump is removed) the plastic resevoir tank has cracked and the hydraulic fluid was lost. Leakage was visible in trunk once spare tire removed.
Audi also noted this is not unusual for a vehicle this age, and the replacement tank is a $100 kit.

SOURCE: 99' Audi A6 2.8 Q no brakes, low to no pedal pressure...

Not likely the ABS pump there is something wrong with the mechanical brakes it sounds like the emergency brake is not adjusted try adjusting the rear cable first then pull the emergency brake and push your foot on the brake if it is still to the floor you have a problem with a cylinder or a mechanical adjustment, if it's higher with the E brake on then you have the adjusters not set right and the cables not adjusted, So adjust the cables first. If the brakes are spongy with the engine off then it will need to be power bleed if that does not fix it then you may have the wrong brake shoes or pads on the car. Did you install the plates in the wheel rotor front braes? If not you lose 1/4 inch travel on the from pads, if the basic brakes are not right the ABS side is not going to be right so those problems have to be dealt with first. Also DO YOU HAVE A POWER ASSIST BOOSTER IF SO IT COULD BE BAD, TO TEST HAVE SOMEONE STEP ON THE BRAKE PEDAL AND PULL THE HOSE OFF THE BRAKE BOOSTER IT'S behind the master cylinder (sorry for the caps) if you don't here a suction sound when you remove the hose then you have a bad heck valve by the booster connected to the hose that plugs into the booster. if all of this is ok then it may be the ABS booster but normally its a bleeding problem. write a comment if this does not help or you need another lead,

Either it can be issue with blown fuse controlling the central locking or its issue with central locking control module.Many a times these module gets wet,due to water getting collected there and after that such problem starts.Clean the water and dry that area and recheck,if its working.

How to Change Oil Pressure Sensor in a car ?

If there is oil in the car but if not getting detected or if there is a oil leak then its time to replace oil pressure sensor.
1) Remove the oil pressure sensor. The oil pressure sensor is located in the area of the oil filter.
2) Remove hindering parts. Also remove the parts that are blocking the pressure sensor to come out.
3) The oil pressure sensor is connected by a connector cable. Remove the connector cable. You will notice a rubber boot on the cable Pull it back and push the tab that will unlock the connector.
4) After the connector cable is unplugged, carefully remove the oil pressure sensor with the help of open end wrench.
5) Now before removing the old oil pressure sensor, please take note of the position in which it is placed. So while inserting new sensor there is no problem about placing the new sensor.
6) Insert the new sensor carefully and connect the connector cable to the proper position.
7) And reverse/refit all the wires / parts which you removed while replacing the old Oil pressure sensor.

This will help. Thanks

My '08 Cabriolet A4 has less than 40,000 miles and does mostly freeway driving. At about 29,000, 33,500 and 38,500 miles it required adding a quart of oil. What is the problem, remedy and recourse. ...

You know the dealer doesn't want it

Your using more oil than you should,
but not enough to tear the motor down

Not much you can do if the dealer
has no bulletins or solutions

I have a 92 audi 100 that floods with water when it rains but we have not been able to figure out where the water is coming in from because nothing but the carpet itself gets wet..2 inches wet.. any ideas...

Check if the bottom of the door panels are wet. There is a plastic sheet under the door panel to keep water out. If its ripped or become unglued around the bottom it can cause water to come in. They need to be sealed perfectly to work.

On my 2002 Audi A4 the Engine Oil Sensor faulty light has come on. Does this need to be replaced Immediately? The car is running normally. Can I change the sensor on my own?

Might want to keep an eye on this one.

AUDI has recalled A4 models d/t excessive "oil sludge buildup" (leading to possible engine failure, timing belt failure, and an overall decrease in daily performance). You will note that AUDI has switched from mineral based oil, to synthetic oil for routine oil changes. The aforementioned will allow the engine oil viscocity to remain constant between service point intervals.
