Ignition Coil or Spark Plug: One of the most common reasons for engine misfires in Audi’s? That would b e the Ignition Coil or Spark Plug malfunctioning. The solution? Replacement of the components with OE equipment.
Oil Leaks: Oil leaks in an Audi can come from two places mostly. The camshaft tensioner or the valve cover gasket. The solution is two replace one or both, each will typically cost a few hundred dollars in parts.
Catalytic Converters: Catalytic Converters fail primarily due to clogging or carbon build up which solidifies and jams the exhaust flow. If your catalytic converters fail, its important your Audi mechanic gets to the bottom of what actually caused it, and fixes that too. If they just replace the converter, it is bound to happen again.
