Tough to say. Its possible the PCV valve was never your issue to start.

I have a 2010 Audi A4. I took it to get service because the oil light kept coming on. The repair shop had to replace the turbo and the injectors. I have now made a claim with Audi Care, I have 69000 miles. I expect to be fully reimbursed for this it also has problems with the transmission when it starts from 0.

Great DIY. Is there any way to test the PCV valve to see if it’s working 100%? I don’t have a CEL but it’d be nice to be able to check somehow, perhaps with Vagcom.

Sounds like you will need to track down your vacuum leak. You should consider having it properly diagnosed by a shop

Corrie19994 months ago

I just called my local Audi dealership and they said that since I am at 82,000 miles, I just missed the cut off of 80,000 for my car to be fixed free of charge. I am pretty upset right now. They basically told me that if this had happened to me earlier, I would have been covered but since the problem just showed up and I am outside of the mileage covered, I am out of luck. Is/has any been in my situation? if so, what have you guys done?

This makes me feel good about the 2010 A4 purchase.

I just saw these comments. I have a 2007 s4 with 60,000 miles and am trying to decide whether or not to keep it. Since the very beginning I have had to add a quart of oil about every 1200 miles and the response I have been given by the dealership is that this is normal and nothing to be concerned about. What are your thoughts. I do not think I have ever had a compression test done. Would that be something at my expense?

My A5 is booked in for piston ring replacement and Audi have agreed to cover the cost. Just a thought – do you feel compensation should be paid for the cost of all the oil I have been putting in the engine over the last 2 years since I bought the car?

i have Audi A3 18.tfsi 2007. I have a fault code 0171 for very lean trim with check engine light. I have checked all parts from fuel pressure, MAF, electrics, looked for air leaks and nothing wrong there. My engineer can’t tell 100% what the problem is. Could it be PCV or N80? Thank you in advance

@Rick: I have seen very few engine replacements. If your piston replacement will mark your third repair attempt, it’s time to look into your rights. Visit http://www.lemonlaw.com/lemon-law-firm.html to find a lemon law firm in your state that may be able to help you.

Audi A3 1.8 TFSI 2010 piston rings gone, was bought privately, think Audi will accept that it is a common fault and a costly one at that? Any thoughts on whether or not Audi will help with a repair?

Red4 months ago

I have a 2010 A4 that I’ve had for about a year. I’ve put about 10k miles on it but I’ve gotten about four oil changes, getting another one today. I’ve had to add so many quarts of oil that I’ve lost count. But in the past three months I have added two quarts and I’ve only gone about 2k miles in that time.

Mary4 months ago

So glad I found this site. I have a 2011 Q5 2.0, ~70K miles. Was told that my oil consumption was normal and I listened, dum me. Nothing documented except my credit card receipts for oil purchases. My concern is that this consumption issue can lead to other major issues. Currently my car is at the dealer for a cylinder issue. Plan on having the dealer address the oil issue.

Take a look at the noise the PCV might make when it goes bad

Bri19874 months ago

My issue ended up being the cam bridge seal that was bad and was causing oil to leak off the top of the engine on the the Crank Case Valve and burn out of the turbo. Replaced the seal and CCV and it is running good! Hope this helps everyone.

Gary19964 months ago

After replacing the valve do i have to clear any codes in the computer car system or its just a simple replacement.

FordOwner4 months ago

I am trying to find parts and a mechanic that will help with the issue. Is there anything I can do with Audi that can help or is my mileage working against me?

R2_Amazeballs4 months ago

Your video was great. I replace the PVC valve on my 2010 Passat with a new on from your store without any incident. However the engine light is still on. Does it take some miles/time for the system to clear the error? Or should a new valve (if that is the true issue) fix the problem and shut the light off immediately after starting the car after the install?

Corrie19994 months ago

Could be a boost leak but its tough to say for sure.

My son in law just got an A5 2.0 litre TFSI, it uses 3 litres of oil every 500 miles. Myself, I have had an Audi 100 in 83 and two A6. Audi need to help their customers. My son in law is getting no help from Audi at ALL. We both follow Audi Motorsport. NO MORE WILL BUY A BMW.

Audi S5 crank case fault

They couldn’t have cared less. So much for “Truth in Engineering”

Gary19964 months ago

Hi! can you please contact me? I bought a used 2010 Audi A4 on December 31, 2013. A the time it had 46000 miles. Within a day of buying it the oil light was on. Over the following year I had the oil topped off at least once every 2-3 weeks. A week ago, my car, which now has 61000 miles, experienced engine failure. The excessive use of oil seems to have destroyed the engine. How best to proceed? This was bought used without a warranty.

Bri19874 months ago

#63 Mark is correct….Audi WILL NOT own up to the issue and will not admit fault.

R2_Amazeballs4 months ago

Do you believe I indeed have a faulty PCV valve? Is there a real issue with my block-off that would cause more leaking than normal? HumbeMechanics video on the PCV valve evens states to block it off to reduce the risk of leaks.

petHead4 months ago

Each time they say I pass the test, but wonder what it would be if the turn oil pressure back to factory settings???

You will need to erase the faults if you had some originally

Matchmaker14 months ago

I also read in another post, after my CEL came on after owning the car for a month, that the oil consumption is due to (I wish I remembered the name of it) a plastic valve on the top of the engine, toward the rear. The faulty part made my car misfire and after replacement, unfortunately my oil consumption issue was NOT resolved.

Mary4 months ago

My wife has a 59 plate A5 2.0 tfsi, it was consuming alot of oil. Contacted Audi, they t up for the 600 mile oil consumption test and the oil light came on after a week. Audi are now replacing the Engine free of charge.

Corrie19994 months ago

Not sure about buying a Bimmer, but I agree….stay away from Audi.

@ John My car had 12.5 k miles when I bought it. Till ~ 35.5 k miles my car burnt 1 quart per 9500 miles. After and currently it’s twice more : 1 quart per 4750 miles. I can live with and my engine runs perfectly. I do not drive in city, mainly highway and 25 k miles per year. My car has now more than 62.5 k miles…but I fear the oil consumption will continue increasing…

FordOwner4 months ago

@Bob: It’s not a small percentage. Bring the matter to your dealer to ensure that you are not dealing with the problem. It smees unlikely based on your description.

Gary19964 months ago

@ John When consuming oil the risk is to contaminate the inlet face of your catalyst. Will depend on conditions at engine-out (flow and temperature). In consequence it’s not recommended to mainly drive in city (oil may not be completely burnt before reaching the cat).

Is there a part number just for the pcv gasket in the post?

Porker4 months ago

Audi procedure appears to involve consumption test followed by engine work. Customers have variously been asked to contribute some, all or none of the cost of this work. Audi says any contributions they make are ‘goodwill’ as the cars are outside of warranty.

Gary19964 months ago

Yes you should be able to take it off and reinstall. Where is the leak coming from?
