On a dashbord flashing "oil


STOP the engine immediately !!! There is an oil pump failure of 2.0 TDI engines !
Remove the oil pan and the oil pump & balancer shafts assembly.

Either the shaft driving the pump from the balance shaft rounds off or the balance shaft drive gears eat themselves.
The same issue ... low oil pressure warning light, noisy rattling engine, and the turbo has gone. Diagnosis: oil pump balancer shaft assembly ...

Many 2.0 TDI engines show excess chain noise and wear anywhere from 50,000-100,000+ miles. Cars have broken the chains/tensioner as low as 65,000 miles. This is just a range of cars that have been reported, diagnosed, and repaired. The actual statistics on dealer repairs or failures is unknown and I've heard cars over 100,000 miles that, in my opinion as a non mechanic (most mechanics wouldn't recognize this sound and problem either), aren't noisy. From what has been reported, noticeable noise/chain-tensioner wear/greater risk of breaking is around 60,000-150,000 miles. Your case may vary. The most obvious symptom is a rattling loose noise from the oil pan. Unless you listen to a Passat TDI with a tight chain and one with a loose chain, it's hard to describe the difference other than rattling chain noise.
The reason the gear drive oil pump modification was started is because a few mechanics who specialize in TDI have seen many worn oil pump chains/sprockets/tensioners. There will always be a few defective parts that come off the assembly line and all mechanical components like chains wear out sooner or later, but in my opinion, the failure rate is abnormal considering the number of Passat TDI sold versus the number of reported oil pump failures. This does not necessarily mean that every or even most Passat TDI will have this problem, just that the reported failure rate is high enough to consider this part a design failure. Nobody, not even VW-Audi knows the average time between failure for these parts and the percentage of cars that will have this problem, but they changed this design and if you want to not have this specific failure, the only sure way is to swap to the geared module.

I drive a 2004 Audi A4 1.8T. It has a 6 speed manual and it is becoming increasingly more difficult to shift gears due to a stiff and notchy gear shifter. I've had the car well maintained and serviced and...


The hard to put into gear is the cause of either a worn or almost worn out clutch or the syncro in the transmission. To test the clutch just observe where the clutch releases. If it releases at the top of the clutch stroke then it most likely is the syncros, if it releases at the bottom (ot too early in the stroke on release) then it is the clutch and you need a new clutch installed. Hope this helps you.

2000 A4: notchy gear change when the engine is hot


Check the gearbox oil - has this been changed (with the wrong grade) just before the problem started ? May also be too little oil, from a small leak - which will get very thin when then inevitably overheating. Best to change the gearbox oil, note if lots of sludge or debris comes out (or is attached to the drain plug). If oil is the problem, total siezure may be just down the road.

Whining noise while accelerating in 1st gear


Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.

Audi a4 tdi stiff gearchange worse when hot 1197 model


tandard practice to change the oil on a clutch replacement. Was the replacemmiles it's covered, but it's not sounds like the gearbox oil need changing. You don't say how many miles it has done. Gear box oil is not usually changed in a clutch replacement. Did an Audi garage carry out the rlacement? It could be the cable needs adjusting to allow the clutch to have free movement

I have an audi 2,5 tdi 2001 and this morning as i was driving it the stering wheel got stiff. i pulled over and i saw the alternator belt had broken.why did it happen? what should i do?


That's what is called your serpentine belt, or accessory belt. They don't last forever. You're supposed to inspect them for cracks every 40,000 miles or so because the rubber breaks down and they get weaker over time. Sounds like yours is about 8 yrs old. Any vw/audi shop can replace it for you.
