Question about 2006 Audi A4
I have an audi 2006 a4 2.0t and the engine sounds like a diesel, and makes tapping noises, i had it inspected by 2 different audi dealerships and they told me to ignore it until it gets worse or a engine light comes on. I didnt really believe what they were telling me so i took it to my own mechanic who does import cars, he told me the engine should be very quiet, and something is mechanicall wrong with the engine, like a piston for exp.. and that i would most likely need a brand new engine. However, I heard the mechanics at audi hate warranty work and will avoid it because they dont make as much money from it. Anyone having the same problem or has had this happen? any solutions or what it could be?> thanks
It may be a lifter tick, HOPEFULLY not a rod knock. However you would not need a brand new engine if either of those were the case. If you find someone that can rebuild the engine, that may or may not be cheaper depending on the dealer and parts that need to be replaced. It could also be the timing belt. The shop told you to wait for a check engine light because they dont know what's wrong with it, without plugging it into their computer. But you should NOT ignore it. Hope this helps.
