    2015 Q5 3.0T Engine noise. HELP!! IS THIS SERIOUS??

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hi all,

    I just purchased this used 2015 Q5 with 88K about a month ago. It has all service records and maintenance performed. It didn't sound this loud when i first got it like a month ago. Is this normal or am i screwed? I've searched this forum and AW forum and Youtube but can't quite dial it down to an answer of what it is. All help is appreciated.

    Have you checked your oil level?

    In for an answer as well, I have this on my S4 engine as well.

    Not sure if its the timing chain or something in the supercharger that is causing the noise.

    Hard to tell from the short clip but it almost sounds like a water pump or a fan going bad...

    The oil level says full. The dealer was the last to do the oil change.

    I have never gotten a CEL for this noise either, mine has been going on for quite sometime as well. Dont think its something serious.

    As soon as the engine gets any sort of load everything tightens up and the noise is gone. Is yours the same?

    Sounds like a normal direct injection engine. The injectors are under high pressure and tend to be noisy.

    I was going to say this too. I didn't hear anything in that clip different from mine. The injectors are rather noisy, but only when the hood is open.

    ...and i think even more so after a cold start.

    OP, i'll try to see what mine sounds like later for comparison sake.

    2015 Q5 3.0T Engine noise. HELP!! IS THIS SERIOUS??

    Not reading that mess of a post lol. But it sounds like a normal N80 purge valve working. It cycles like that when the engine is warm just as a functioning SAI system should.

    Should be fine as long as thereís no cels. I thought mine was bad bc it made that same clicking and had a SAI system leak but I replaced it and it didnít fix the leak and the clicking was still there lol.

    Edit: mine was a 2.0t, so I am not aware of these being issues on the 3.0t.

    If you find the purge valve and disconnect the electrical connector, and the ticking stops, you know itís that valve and is normal.

    I agree with the fuel injector noise theory as I had a 2011 Q5 3.2L and it sounded just like that. Never had any issues with the engine.

    This video has the noise that i heard that prompted my to make the first video. I originally thought it was engine tap. I just figured out that the noise seems to be coming from or being amplified through the driver side air vent.
    The noise sounds like it could be an exhaust leak or some kind of rattling. You hear it better with the windows up through the drivers side vent.
    I really appreciate everyone's help.

    I had a similar noise. Took a long time to diagnose. Turned out to be the A/C compressor. Worth checking out

    In regards to the injector noise, has anyone tried an upper cylinder lubricant, fuel additive to see if that has any impact? Maybe the Lucas, Redline SI-1, or some other product?
