You have a "blown head gasket" This means that the gasket seal between the cylinder head and the cylinder block has failed. Coolant is getting into the combustion chamber (cylinder) and being heated into steam.. If you carefully smell the exhaust FROM A DISTANCE, don't stick your nose in the tail pipe, you will detect a sweetness to the steam from the glycol in the coolant. Now you need to either get a quote to have it done, or research how to do it yourself. If you are NOT a fair to decent mechanic, then don't try doing yourself.
If you pull the spark plugs you can narrow down the area where it's failed. The CLEAN plug is where it is.

SOURCE: Banging noise coming from engine

There are 3 possible reasons the oil light would go on. The 1st and 2nd reason would be due to no oil lubrication of engine components. This could be from a failed oil pump, or critically low oil level. The 3rd possibility would be a defective oil sending unit giving a false reading of a problem. You should always immediately pull over and shut the vehicle off if the oil light goes on, as driving the vehicle could result in severe damage to the engine. The banging noise you hear and the black smoke is probably due to a major engine problem, due to lack of engine lubrication. How much oil did you have to add to bring it up to full level?

SOURCE: 2005 Audi A4 Emission Control System Indicator

A vehicle's Emission Control Light is a generalized indicator that there is fault or possible malfunction in the vehicle's operating system. In some cases, these warning lights will come on if a gas cap is not fully closed. It could any one of a number of sensors such as the o2 sensor or map sensor. The thing to do is have a reputable mechanic/technician run a diagnostics test on the vehicle.

SOURCE: Audi A4 tail lights come on at night and drain my battery

its the sensor in the brake pedal, happens mostly at cold nights since cold weather loosens up the pedal it causes the pedal to go down by itself if like you were braking, I used to roll up the matt and put it underneath the pedal and that would put pressure upwards while i was researching on how to do it myself found out is complicated and decided to take it to the mechanic for a 200$ fix.

SOURCE: 2005 Audi A4 1.8 Fuel Pump problem?

I had an Audi A4, 10 years older than yours mind you, but it would start then stop, sometimes 10 times but would eventually go. I ran a little WD40 in the key barrel and put the key in and out a couple of dozen times. Wiping it with a cloth each time, lots of dirt came off. My theory and it's only mine, is that the wear on the key left dirty metal deposits inside which stopped the chip in the key being recognised. I believe they had a security chip inside the key.
Anyway after 6 months of this nuisance it never happened again after that. Fixed my problem and a lot of frustration. Maybe help you too.

Smoke coming from engine


Where is the white smoke coming from? Under hood? Out tail pipe? If excessive white smoke from tail pipe, suspect a head gasket failure which in turn will fill the cooling system with exhaust pressure forcing the coolant to come out of the reservoir and resulting in an overheating problem

Your head gasket is leaking and you'll have to take your car to your mechanic, the wihte smoke is coolant leaking into theengine cylinders, check you radiator it's problably low.

White smoke indicates water being burned. Also the ticking means your loosing oil. You most likely have a blown head gasket.

Nissan Sentra 2000 model. Thick White smoke coming out of exhaust


White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event.

Let us know how it goes or if the problem persists. We're looking forward to how things go for you.
