    One more thing, the level is above the max line, I have read somewhere here to do this on purpose in case you have a noise.

    Overfilling can cause you to blow a seal in the rack or pump. Keep it between the lines

    As long as they're compatible it should be fine. Most of the times the newer versions are backwards compatible

    It'll be in before 2023. Probably. But definitely in time for Chloe to get her drivers license. So 2030 for sure. Maybe.

    The really frustrating part about Audi USA is the lack of drivetrain options in general.

The manual is dying, but only in the US where people are either obsessed with 30ms shifting DSG because ZOMG ITS FASTER, or theyíre sorta lazy and never learned to drive stick. I know there are plenty of health related issues that mean you canít physically use a clutch and thatís totally cool, they can have automatics if they require it. But Iím honestly going to be using manuals as long as theyíre around or my left leg falls off. And itís not a snobbery thing, I genuinely prefer a manual, even in bumper to bumper stop and go. If more fun, I feel mechanically connected to the car, and Iím never in the wrong gear (unless I goof) because humans can anticipate road conditions in a way a computer flat out cannot right now.

    Also agree. The loss of manual wagons is especially sad.

    Gotta love Audi rust


    Painted over it and changed out the brake light.


    Not spending $1300 on a hatch for a 130k mile car, already paying $1100-1400 this month for the rust warranty cost of fixing all 4 doors + rear quarter panels.

    Speaking of high deductibles: for your comprehensive, drop that way down to $50, it made my insurance go up like $18 a year (deductible was $500). If you do that to your collision, it'll sky rocket you if you even can at all. Comprehensive is one of those magic numbers that's easy to fix

    Around here we have a lot of deer. I've hit at least 5 or 6 of them. If someone keys your car, that's also comprehensive. Weather damage.... all that stuff. Ps Geico has been fantastic to us, I've had them since 97, def worth checking into

    For me if was the HPFP. But i had replaced everything in the fuel system first. That was the last thing and it fixed the hard fuel cuts i had.

    I did have a bad N75 at the samw time that i wasnt aware of since i only got the P0089 at the time.

    Once the HPFP was replaced i got the P0299.

    You need a set of these to get to that last bolt, makes the job about a 10 minute fix. Search for "Extra Long Hex Bit Set | Metric 3/8" Drive"

    I have a similar set of triple squares but for my long hex set I got a Dewalt t-handle set with a nice set of 6Ē x 1/4Ē shanks, they really come in handy.

    Took it into Audi to get her finally fixed with the CEL, along with the boost leak I mentioned. Now...I wait to see how well this movie will do in the box office. It's called "Two Tears, One Cup!" Since he mentioned possible manifold.

    Got most of the black interior trim in. My black airbag still has to go in. Then all I have left to get is the carpet, seatbelts, rear deck, C-Pillar trim and upper B-Pillar trim. I can work on those next year. Iím still mixed on if I will ever do the dash and headliner. Those seem like major PITA. If I could get door panels with the top part tan I would do a two tone. I think it would look nice.

    Itís on the stands today, finally ding my turbo replacement. Spent entirely too long trying to lift the turbo out of the bay. The brace to the lower mount gave me stupid trouble. Can i just not put that back in?

    Taking the turbo out from the top is the way to go. You can get a socket with a long extension in there to loosen the top screw of the turbo support bracket. Once itís loose and can move, itís less of a pain. Donít remove the screw, just loosen it enough so the support bracket can move. Itís a blind bolt that you can get from the exhaust side.

    And pull the turbo out fully assembled. Itís so much easier to just disconnect everything from the engine side, pull the turbo and swap everything to the replacement on your bench.

    Google ďstasis turbo and intake manifold PDFĒ. It shows you a really good way to R&R a turbo.

    And hereís another tip. When you are ready to pull the turbo, you donít have to touch the lower exhaust manifold studs only the top ones. The bottom of the exhaust manifold is held in by a wedge. No need to remove or loosen the bottom studs.

    Yea the PDF has a 404 error every time I try and look it up. I finally got it out from the top last night. That bracket was definitly a pain in the ass. My plan was to move most of it over on the bench, I left the oil feed/return lines on the car and also left the coolant feed line in the car, didnít feel the need of fighting with snaking that back in, that 8mm banjo will definitely be interesting to tighten

    Also I had to loosen the bottoms wedge bolts to get the turbo out because with that bracket still attached there was way to limited movement

    That one support bracket is a royal PITA. I would HIGHLY suggest putting it back in as that takes a lot of the force when the turbo spools. Especially if you have an aftermarket exhaust that does not utilize the transmission area hanger for the downpipe. You dont want the entire weight of the turbo, downpipe hanging off just the manifold. Thats how you crack that sucker.

    The oil and coolant lines are way easier to do if you leave them on the turbo and transfer them outside. For next time I guess 😀

    When you put the turbo back in, leave the support bracket loose on the turbo so it can move. Install the turbo, clamp down the exhaust manifold, attach the support bracket to the engine side and torque it down on the turbo side.

You dont want the entire weight of the turbo, downpipe hanging off just the manifold. Thats how you crack that sucker.
    Exactly. Itís there for a reason. 😀

    And donít forget to pull your fuel pump fuse and prime the turbo. It might not be an issue if you donít but for 2 minutes of extra time, itís worth cutting the risk.

    YES THIS IS REQUIRED.

    Leave the oil return line from the turbo removed from the block and use the starter to pump oil through the motor until you see oil drip through the return hose. Bolt it up and start the car normally.
