Question about Cars & Trucks
This sounds like oil pressure problem to me. Check iol viscosity. If it is fine check oil pressure against specs. If loy you needto check oil pump and engine.

May be a leaky hydraulic tappett. Does the engine make a tapping noise. If so, I think that's your problem. Oil leaks out of the tappett back to the sump. You the have too big a clearance. When the engine is started, it gradually fills up going back to the correct clearance and the noise goes away. Expensive to fix in garage. If you can fix it or know someone who can, here is a link. http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-forum-8l-chassis/118251-how-rebuild-clean-hydraulic-lifters-vag-1-8t.html Best of luck, Dave

if its only when you put your foot on the clutch it could be a release bearing fault,does it do it when you are not moving and put your foot on the clutch(engine running of course)

on the 2001 models:
1.8 - 125bhp
1.8t - 150bhp
1.8t - 180bhp
the only difference in the two turbo models is the ecu setup

I hope that you had the proper weight oil installed, at your oil change. If your oil is up to the proper level, and it's rattling ,this is VERY bad. White smoke usually means steam in the exhaust, and that means a blown head gasket. Check your coolant level. I wouldn't drive it anymore......until someone knowledgeable can diagnose it!!!!!

Hi, the sensor on the engine (right at the rear end of the cylinder head) has two separate outputs. One drives the temperature gauge and the other provides data for the engine control unit. The output for the engine control unit is almost certainly faulty and the sensor will need to be replaced. It isn't an expensive item and's not time consuming to replace (1/2 hr) - so you could ask Audi to do it for you when they replace the ignition coils.
Hope that helps Matt..

Check your ignition coils. I had the same problem on my 2002 Audi a6 3.0 quatro. Tiptronic transmission. I was driving down the road and all if the sudden the car started vibrating violently to. I thought I had a flat tire so I pulled over and checked but there was no flat tire. The more I accelerated the more it would vibrat. Changed my ignition coils and the problem went away.
