Having problems with your Audi A6 ?

Evap leak I have a 2007 audi a6 3.2 quattro and cannot find the large vapor leak(PO455). I initially had a small vapor leak, was told it was the purge valve, had it repaired then a large vapor leak code appeared. No one could find it and finally I was told it was the leak detection pump. Replaced leak detection pump and code came back on 2 days later. Any feedback would be appreciated as I am about to lose my mind spending

My 1997 lincoln town car started running rough at idle and the check egine light came on. The car runs fine driving down the road.

My 98 F150 6 cylinder has started using coolant but I can't find a leak or anything. The engine light came on and it doesn't want to idle. The RPMs just drop down and the engine shakes the entire truck and sometimes dies. Any idea on what could be causing this. I took it to Auto Zone and had them run the codes and it came back with one code?? and several possible causes for that code.


Are you getting a sweet-smelling and white exhaust too? What you describe is due to a failed head gasket. Coolant is leaking into the cylinders and causing the bad idle (coolant isn't combustable).\015\012\015\012 Take it to a shop to g ... 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab

P1494 code hi my check engine light came on so we thought it might be the gas cap so we replaced it and had the light turned back off well it came on again and gave this code i looked it up and it says leak detection pump switch or mechanical fault so what exactly does that mean? what do i have to do to fix it and how much do you think it would cost thanks Beth


It means you aren't tightening the gas cap down tight, or the vent in the gas cap isn't sealing. Open the gas cap, and look at the center. Take a punch and jiggle the center, which is a valve. This will usually re-seat the valve... or replace the ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Three codes p1670,p0171,andp0174 . p1670 main computer cannot find the a.b.s. computer. I do not think this code alone would bring the check engine light on. But p0171 and p0174 which are engine too lean bank 1 and bank 2 will bring the check engine light on.

My check engine light in my 2003 Kia Rio keeps coming on. So far, my mechanic has pulled codes for and repaired the following. A flex hose pipe, the 02 sensor, pin holes in the exhaust, the gas tank and the purge solenoid. I am trying to get the vehicle inspected, but we can't seem to find the problem. The code that keeps coming up is an evac or exhaust leak. Yesterday, after replacing the purge solenoid, I didn't even get it home, about 10 miles away, and the light came back on. Any tips

Purchased a Lincoln Aviator 2 days ago and the check engine light came on. Come to find out its listed as P0430 code Catalyst efficiency low-bank 2 with probable causes: 1. Catalytic converter defective, 2. engine misfire 3. large vacuum leak, 4. engine oil leak into exhaust-valve guide seals, pistons rings. Is this costly to get fixed and how long can I go with not getting it fixed ASAP? Will it cause immediate damage to the vehicle if I wait a week or so to get fixed?

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand AM SE with a V6 3.4 liter engine. I had my check engine light come on and went to Auto Zone to get a code which related to a emission vapor leak.

From the sounds of things you don't really know what your doing. I would advise you to take it to a mechanic but not a dealership. The large fuel leak has to do with the venting system for the gas tank, something in there isn't sealing properly anymo ... 2003 Dodge Durango

I have the code P0455 and P0442. I replaced the gas cap with a new cap and had a mechanic look underneath to see if their were any hoses off or leaks and he couldn't find any problem.
