Other than the regular, let off gas sooner etc., you may try a K&N air filter, synthetic oil? I guess it all depends how much you want to spend. 1.8L 4 cylinder, and mileage isn't good? Please eloborate.

    That's about 30MPG, not bad average, depending on your driving habits. As far as oil goes, I've always had good luck with Castrol.

Brake fluid

No fluids are consumed on any vehicle,
thus no need to add, unless you have a leak
to repair

The fluid goes into the master cylinder on passenger
side of vehicles in north american

The cap,master cylinder are in plain site mounted
in front of brake booster for the past 60 years

Just replaced slave cylinder now grinds going into second gear

Sounds like it was being forced before and through out the syncro to the gear, not a hard thing to fix but very time consuming.

Problems with 2005 Ford Five Hundred

Absolutely!. The dealer shafted you, if he told you nothing was wrong. 80 psi leakage out of exhaust (valve,;;;where else?) is a dead give-away: You need a good old fashioned VALVE JOB. Your exhaust valve, see, is not seating properly, not sealing as it should. It leaks, bigtime in your case, so compression is low, unburned gas escapes out the exhaust (You smelled it!), no power from that cylinder so it idles like ****, and will try to die, and of course, mileage suffers. Sound familiar, Robin?
Now of course the dealer knew what it was. Apparently he didn't want this time-consuming job. All he wanted was his in the door and out money. From the shop mechanics point of view, a cylinder head job is a relatively low paying and time consuming job. But there's no excuse for somebody not telling you that you need a valve job. Take it somewhere else. It's gonna be expensive, no getting around it, cause the head has to come off, but at least it's a whole lot less than an engine overhaul. And just give those figures to your new mechanic-the diagnostics are all done. Good luck.

Try changing the fuel filter, first. If that does not work try replacing the pump. Also make sure you run 91 or higher octane.

While fueling Gas nozzle gets stuck in Tank....

We own a number of gas stations in CT. this is a known problem with Audi A-4"s. Not a week goes by that we don't have to rescue a customer. Audi should step up and do a recall on the fuel nozzle.
It happens only in the Audi A-4.
