#1074 of 2367 Check engine light on Audi 2002
Dec 24, 2005 (2:11 pm)
I have an Audi A4, 1.8T, 2002. As soon as my 4 year warranty expired suprise suprise, problems began.
The check engine light came on. After a visit to Autozone, I finally found out that the following error code was causing the problem:
"P0171: system runs too lean". Anybody has any idea what the problem might be? I was told that it might be a senson malfunction and that i might have to replace it (i was told it costs around $180). Anybody experienced similar problem? The car has been running without any noticable change in behavior with "check engine light" on for 4 weeks now. Do you think that I might cause more damage if I don't have it fixed?
Thanks in advance for your input.

#1077 of 2367 Clutch help
Dec 27, 2005 (6:35 pm)
I have a 2003 Audi A4 1.8, 54000 miles. Tonight, my clutch went on the car. Have any of you had any successful experience dealing with Audi of America regarding covering this problem with only 4,000 miles beyond warranty? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I guess the posts on this board are correct...decent car until the warranty runs out!

what exactly does the noise sound like? I had noise from the back too with the same car. It was a buzzing sound that was very loud, kind of like a piece of mettle rattling very fast and loud and the sound got louder when I accelerated. It turned out to be the muffler needed re-welding.

Audi is not reliable. You may get a warranty but the car can be in the shop every few weeks diagnosing and servicing problems. Do you really want that???? Don't buy it despite the hype about all the warranty.

I did do that but I have only 8 done at Audi and I need like 9 or 10. They won't pay for anthing because of that.
They should of recalled the cars to replace the engines but they are just trying to hold us to a stringent test so they can save money. Piece of junk engine.

My problem is the oil light came on one cold morning and ultimately i had to stop driving it. I had it towed to the dealership and they are telling me it is an oil sludge problem. I don't have all my oil change receipts(8 out of 10) They are telling me I possible need a new engine. They want $650 to just to tell me that and that Audi won't cover it. Crooks if you ask me. They should of recalled these engines. Instead, they make you jump thru hoops on a problem they know they have.
