I would like to know,if a cloged catalyc converter with the charcoal from inside the cat.is broken its all loose inside very bad,will make the car misfire only cylinder number one!!or if will make the car misfire at all? cuz audi said that they have to replace the engine because the wall where the pistons goes is scrathed,but all the valve,pistons,rings are in very good conditions i think the mechanis missjudge my car,without cheking the cat first.any idea?

I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.
The P0441 code indicates that there is improper purge flow in the EVAP system. There are many things to check for this code. First a loose gas cap can trigger this code, Remove gas cap and check the rubber seal on cap, put vaseline on the seal and replace back on vehicle, or replace cap if bad. A broken or loose vacuum line, and also check the purge valve in charcoal canister. Hope this steers you on the right track. God-Bless! Rotten egg smell is caused buy a bad converter-- Here are five signs that something may be wrong with your catalytic converter:
Your vehicle's fuel efficiency suddenly drops.
Your vehicle doesn't accelerate when you step on the gas pedal.
Depends. A five gas analyser can tell the amount of NOX, CO, CO2 which will let you know based on what the values are. You can do a visual test at night if the car is running. Just look underneath. If it is glowing hot it is plugged. If you smell rotten eggs coming from the exhaust it is a good sign its bad. You can beat on it with your hand and if you hear debri inside being moved by the beating it needs replaced. A dianostic like a cheap scanner will tell you your downstream O2 sensor or bank 1 sensor 2 or bank 2 sensor 2 has a fault code but that isn't exactly going to tell you the Cat is bad. If your scanner has the ability to give you data you can see if the value is high or low depending on what the vehicle is supposed to read. If your upstream sensor 1 is reading good and your down stream sensor is reading bad there is most likely a hole between them. The sure sign of a bad Cat is lose of power, the smell of rotten eggs, its glowing under the car from heat caused by blockage, your O2 sensors are acting up or throwing codes, you can hear a leak coming from it or see one. Some Cats don't stink when they go bad because of the type of catalyst used inside. So if you know what your doing you can use a dianostic test to detect a bad catalytic converter.
Firing order for 2003 (B6) Audi S4 4,2l V8 engine is: 1 - 5 - 4 - 8 - 6 - 3 - 7 - 2 Cylinder no.# 1 is first one from right front side of the car, and cylinder no.# 4 is the fourth one (front to rear) on the right bank of cylinder block. See picture below:
the cause is the exhaust system and the two-way catalystic converter system of your S4.
The converters become very hot if you put the hammer down (app. 500 deg. celsius on the outside) and even though there are heatshields mounted between the converters and the vehicle´s floor, you can feel the heat inside.
The transmission itself is producing high temperatures as well, so no worries, remember your S4 is sport´s car ;)
Yes the CEL should have turned on. Just turn the key to the run position and the light should turn on.If it doesn't, the bulb may be burned out. Also, if the coil failed and was driven for awhile, it may cause the cat converter to fail after awhile of driving. So, please keep that in mind.
