Question about 2000 Audi TT

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Audi TT front wheel drive. Within the last two months the engine has developed a lot of spatial vibration under load. I can feel it in the steering wheel, pedal and the whole front end. I have replaced the plugs, maf, coil packs, and coolant temperature sensor. Mechanic believes this to be linked to a bad wastegate actuator, but I think otherwise as I don't believe a bad turbo part can cause this annoying vibration. It has been suggested that possible wiring harness, throttle body, or secondary air pump may be the culprits. The last mechanics were just looking for a big fat paycheck.

Could be. You need to get the code read to determine if it is related. If this happens worse under load it could be a suspension bushing issue. Get someone who works on Audis all the time to do a complete inspection of the suspension front and rear. Most alignment shops just align without an inspection.

Hello, I see you may a lot of changes and replaced a lot of parts. We leased an Explorer the same Year as yours. In our case there was a slight noise as well as vibration. The problem was the Front Hub bearings, They were bad at 18000 miles.

There are a few things I want to suggest. The spinning of the wheels on the lift will not load the bearings. A Dyno table can get everything turning with a load on it. As your vehicle is a 4x4, most Dyno's were 2 wheelers. You would have to call to find one for a 4x4.

Next, if the new Hubs do not help, have a look at the rotors. They are also balanced. You can spin balance the Wheel and rotor as a unit with a floor motor. It's not the best way to Balance because tire rotation or even shifting the Wheel on the lugs will UNbalance it. But this method CAN pinpoint a problem if a Balanced tire does not spin true when bolted to the vehicle. You will know the Rotor is off-balance and which axle is causing the problem.

Would be interested to see a Post of what you found.

I would next check the condition of the engine, transmission and transfer case mounts. The mounts all have rubber inserts in them to absorb vibration and if the rubber starts to deteriorate or drycrack it can cause a vibration, especially under load.

Wobbling of car while accelerating

the u joints in the drive shaft. (CV joints on front wheel drive) more strss on the joints when accelerating so they cause the vibration. no stress/load smooth run. Replace the joints and you'll feel a big difference.
