#2 of 28 Fuel sender problem with 2000 Audi TT quattro
Mar 03, 2003 (10:03 pm)
I bought my Audi assured 2000 TT quattro last weekend and found myself stranded on the freeway this morning on the way to work. The car lost power and eventually died. My fuel gauge showed almost a quarter of a tank of gas and my range was between 50 and 75 miles. The service rep at my dealer told me that they put in some gas and the car started right back up. They're going to replace the fuel sender in the morning and think that that's the problem and I just ran out of gas. Because I had only 280 miles on that tank and estimate that I should have gotten between 300 and 400 miles on 16.4 gallons, I'm suspicious of the "out of gas, bad gauge" theory. Anyone else had this problem? Do I need a new fuel pump?
Also, has anyone been able to quiet the rattles in the back cargo area?
Thanks for any help!
#3 of 28 Oil loss

I purchased a 2002 225-quattro roadster with 2000 miles. within 500 ,miles the oil light came on. They told me at the dealership that it was normal It started to happen every 2000-2500 miles that i needed to add a quart of oil. After the 3rd time in the shop they said that there was a gasket seal that was leaking. They fixed it and then for 6 mos i had no problems. Well it started again like clock work every 2000 miles. The dealer now says that there are no leaks and everything is normal. How can this be? They recommend an oil change every 10K miles but by that time I have added 5 new quarts of oil.

My 01 TT 225 roadster is burning oil as well. It started at about 20k miles. I burn about 2+ quarts every 8k miles or so. I also notice it sputtering on start-up and heavy black soot collecting on the tailpipes. I'm seeing the dealer for my 30k next week so I'll find out what's wrong.

What happened with the dealer and your oil consumption? I have an 01 TTQR 225 and I have about 28,000+ miles.

Could you elaborate on these problems, not sure if I've heard of these or not.
Just replied to you in the other forum, didn't know you were here too (thread's a little slow so don't check it often), but basically the dealer tells you to live with it. He described the heads on our 1.8T engine as "porous". That's Audi-speak for "your engine burns oil". It burns oil fast so check it often (once a month). It hasn't gotten any worse, but I imagine it will over an extended period of time. I wouldn't follow the 10k oil-change recommendation by Audi. I would do it every 5k with regular oil. The only reason I wouldn't recommend synthetic b/c it would be a waste if it's blowing the oil (and your $$) out it's tailpipes. Besides, synthetic tends to be thinner so it may make the oil-burning worse. Let me know how it goes.
