Question about 2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet
I just got my A4 back from Audi Dealer for Timing Belt check that was covered by Audi. And today i had 80000 miles on it. All of the sudden something started clicking or spraying in the motor once i accelerate, not all the time but of and on. when i slow or stop and look under the hood i can't hear anything. I kept driving slow jut to get to the point i can pull over and at once something in my transmision or i don't know what it is like when the belt brakes. I am wondering if the timing belt is broke and how can i check that.
Any sugestions would be helpful.
I'm not sure what is causing the noise, but if the timing belt was broken, your engine would be trashed and would've shut off as you coasted to the side of the road, so I wouldn't sweat that. I'd take it back to the dealer though, and have them test drive the car and check it out - since it seems you just picked it up from them and are now hearing noises you never heard before, it's possible that they didn't set something up right. Try and use every feature our car has - AC, heat, defroster, power steering, you name it - any feature your car has, and see if any of them don't work anymore, as that could help localize the problem.
You said something was "spraying" - I'm assuming not a liquid, but more of a rushing air noise. That would signify a vacuum leak, as if a vacuum line were damaged, pinched, or not reconnected during the servicing of your car. Be sure to bring that to their attention.
If something turns out to be damaged, and they give you a hard time, take your car to an independent Euro mechanic, have them verify the problem, and call the dealer back with the assessment of the independent mechanic, and force them to take care of what they broke. If they refuse, call a lawyer and try again (I'm only mentioning this because a lot of people I know have had trouble getting Audi dealers to rectify problems they create).
