    It took forever to get the new one (it shipped from Germany!), and it wasn't cheap (~$70). Changed it, didn't affect anything. I found another link by someone with the same error code, he ended up...

    Pulled the sensor, error changed, so guessing sensor kaput. I pulled the electronics out, 4 soldered posts, electronics on the bottom side and surface mounted so little chance of repair. Ordering a...

    Wife complains that now when headlight switch turned to Auto, the instrument panel lights stay off even when it gets dark and the headlights come on.

    Ran a full scan and got this (full scan...

    tldr; Good news! The car is now back to its normal self!

    What I did:
    - put the car into the "service position", meaning, pulled the bumper cover off and pulled the front section out 4" so I could...

    Jacke does it again! I replaced the can sensor, same codes when running. Then pulled the cover and lo and behold:

  10. 1999 Audi A6 2.8L - 17746 16684-7 doesn't make sense

    I was driving at a highway speed pulled into a gas station, and my car all of a sudden started running poorly and the check engine light came on, then blinked! Had never seen it blink!

    I looked up...

    Day 4-7: no change

    Drove the car last weekend on two long trips. Perfect - not even the slightest odd behavior.

    This ticket is now closed!

    Day 2: For the next week, taking the car out for it's first spin around the block. Wife said no problems yesterday. It drove perfectly this morning on about a 1 mile spin - and a storm had really...

    Cautious Optimism

    Yesterday late afternoon, I decided to just pull the throttle out, and investigate the gears - to look for anything (dirt, particles, etc) that might impair movement. But first,...

    Its getting worse. I drove it about 60 miles on Sat somewhere, then 60 miles back. When less than 20 minutes of driving, it was almost undriveable. Its kinda sorta got better at 65MPH, but it was...

    I didn't have time - still a working stiff. The booster hose is hard so I'll have to remove the crimped on clamp then find a way to plug the hole into the engine. Obviously the N80 & LDP vacuum line...

    Early this morning with a totally cold car, hooked up VCDS and monitored 32,33, and 16. Started car. Idled a bit high, then settled down. Misted the right side, the side, and the back heavily - no...

    The N80 was brand new when the ECU was replaced. When the original problem that caused my ECU nightmare first started, it was a cracked vacuum line near the dip stick, it was what caused the LDP to...

    I waited a few hours, and tried the misting experiment. I took all engine covers off, set up VCDS to monitor 15 and 16, started the engine, and misted the hell out of the driver side intake manifold,...

    Wife drove car all day Tuesday, said it was rough when cold, then smoothed out. She got home late afternoon, took it out while hot and it drove perfectly.

    This morning took it out myself. Cold...

    Jack hits another home run (well, hoping this sticks!) I was ready to trade the car in after 2 years f'ing around with that damn damaged ECU, then having it run like sh*t.

    Anyway, Jack, thanks...

    I'm sitting here stunned. So after resetting the DTCs, it drives like a new car. In fact, the car is better than it was when we got it in 2011.

    From the day we test drove the car, it had what was...

    Your description of going to OBD-II was not as described: "Go in VCDS main screen and click on button OBD2 and also says hex address 0x33 then scan and select Mode 9 and log"

    I went to OBD2 and...

    I looked - there are no DTCs to reset - no error codes. When I went into Mode 9 it said all was well, nothing wrong.

    That full log has in the 3rd quarter a real road test - 25 MPH. You can see the...

    On my 2009 I build a manometer for about $5 worth of tubing and connected it to the dipstick tube - see the bottom half of this article:

    I did enjoy that video. I did as you asked and went to OBD-II and poked around - no codes. Looked at Mode-9 but it just shows some info.

    Then went to Engine, Measuring blocks, and monitored both...
