Well, it should be good practice to clean the connectors on the coil first with an electrical connections cleaner spray bottle and then reset the malfunction code. This will erase the code on the ECU. If the coil is malfunctioning the light will go on again.

A6 turbocharged. Whyu does it smoke when it covers a 120km per hour?


I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.

2003 Audi A6 allroad, seems to be misfiring, idles extremely rough, check engine light flashing and will not accelerate, could this be the coil packs and spark plugs?


Yes the coil pack is a common problem But you should take the car to a place like Auto Zone where they will read the fault codes to see why the check engine light came on. Then you'll have a better idea of what the problem is. It will tell you which cyl. is causing the missing.

Audi A6 Misfires


You may have a coil pack going bad. They're on the front top of the engine - you'll see them if you follow the spark plug wires back. Do you have any codes from having the engine scanned? If you can get it scanned (AutoZone will do it free), post the codes up and we'll see which cylinder(s) are misfiring. From there, you can swap coilpacks around and see whether the misfires follow the packs or stay in the original cylinders. If they move, you have a bad coil pack or two. If they don't, since you've already changed plugs and wires, I'd see about having the injectors diagnosed to see if any of them are failing.
