Question about 2005 Audi A3

1 Answer

Suspension or tracking? The car doesn't sit like it used to

Hi, I have an Audi A3 2005 3 door Sport. The car has covered 60,000 miles. Recently, I took my car in for some tracking to be done as the car was pulling to the left. After a couple of failed attempts the tracking was sorted. Took it out for a run and it felt fine again. It's been a few weeks now and the car still isn't right, again. Might well take it to have "Hunter 4 wheel allignment" as this seems to cover more than the laser tracking work done previously. I can't help thinking though that a car of this age might well start to be getting worn suspension. If so, what is it I can look out for/identify and are there any particular issues? And, if it is the case it's not just tracking, how much cost could I be facing?

When does a 1998 Subaru Impreza with 60,000 miles need new timing belt?


Non-California vehicles: replace every 60,000 miles

Otherwise, it is just to be inspected at 60,000 and then again at 90-95,000 miles.

On a 2002 mits montero sport suv, is it "required" to change a timing belt every 60,000 miles?


No, consult you owners manual, most belts, timing belts are made of kevlar and last to about 80 to 110,000 miles, be very careful though to see if your engine is a zero clearance engine , meaning the pistions can contact the valves if they become out of time by a failed or sliipped timing belt, it is good to be on the safe side and inspect occasionally the belts, there should be a cover where you can see a section of the belt for inspection purposes, check the entire belt for missing teeth and or cracks and freying, if any of those are present change belt, if you have zero clearance motor failed timing belt can destroy thr top end of the motor causing a very expensive repair... 60,000 miles in on the safe side...

What is the recommended milage for a timing belt change on a 2004 Audi A6?


Hi

Audi recently increased the service interval on these belts from 60,000 to 80,000 miles. You cannot do a timing belt inspection - you must replace it at the specified interval due to the fact that a belt may look good but can still fail due to undetectable stressors in the belt itself when it reaches this mileage.

You do not say which engine variant you have in your car but 80,000 is now the general belt interval that is specified.

Hope this helps.

Recommended service at 60,000 miles??


Hello at 60,000 miles you should have all of the following done.
1) Have you transmission flushed completely
2) change your fuel filter
3) oil and filter change
4) inspect your brakes and rotate your tires
5) replace air filter if needed
6) clean your injectors by pressure
7) have your suspension check
8) have your belts inspected
9) if your differential is not leaking. leave it alone due to age.
10 have your coolant flushed out.

If you had any of the following done recently then subtract from the list.
this may be costly so you may want to do little by little unless you can have it done all at once.
