Question about Audi A3
Car appears to only be running on 3 cylinders, went to change the plugs today and one of the plugs is completely covered in oil. The car has covered 89000 miles with fsh. Im guessing its the piston ring but am praying it could be a less expensive fix. hope someone can help. Regards Paul Maitland
It sounds like a ring or value seal issue. Two things may help the old girl out. One, put in a 60% mix of Lucas oil treatment with new oil and filter. Two, buy a non-fouling tip for the bad plug spot. These let the plug fire but keep oil off the tip. Hope this is of some help to you! Neither of these will totally fix the problem as such, but will save you tons of money, that you may not wish to spend on it.I have a motor with 168.000 on it and the Lucas has stopped all oil burning between changes!
