Question about 1999 Audi A6
Check your power steering fluid level and if it has never been replaced you may want to. The tricky thing about replacing the power steering fluid is that it does not have a drain plug for the fluid. What I have done in the past was to siphon the fluid out with a turkey baster from the dollar stop since it's just going to be discarded, then replace the power steering fluid that has been removed. The serpentine belt may need to be replaced also.
The fuel economy could be cause by many things, but the common is dirty MAF sensor, throttle body, and air filter. Clean the MAF sensor with a can of MAF sensor cleaner and the throttle body with throttle body cleaner and replace the air filter. As for the MAF and throttle body cleaner, just follow the instruction on the cans or ask the parts store for advice such as Auto Zone. Auto Zone can give you the step by step instruction do getting the job done.
Repcap: Check the power steering fluid level and try to replace some of the fluid. Replace the serpentine belt if needed after inspection,look for cracks on the inside of the belt where the ribs are. Clean the MAF sensor and throttle body Inspect and replace the air filter if it's been in there for 1 year or 30,000 miles.
Good luck and hope this helps.
