mechs. did my timing belt and all that good stuff. Turns out the engine was running way hot, i didnt hear the low toned knocking. it fried my vac tubes and air injection hose to a crisp. the most delicate touch crackled it. soooo... everyone check your oil and engine temps, coolant plz.

Should always keep an eye on the stock vac lines because they will get brittle over time just from normal temps under the hood.

I did my first audi oil change last night. It was a breeze, and now I feel better.
