  1. Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Front diff went out last month, slowly started to grind. My fault not replacing the fluid, I run her pretty hard and have towed my trailer prob 20k miles. I found a donor Audi that Ebay said would be compatible, it sure fit, but the gear ratio has to be off. I thought we had it licked, ran...
  2. Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    I'm having a steering issue on a 2014 TDI. CNRB engine I believe. The power steering pump is a bit noisy but I notice that right turns I can feel a slight binding in the steering wheel. It happens everytime turning right and its getting worse. Its like the strut tops or ball joints or tie rods...

    Hi all! New here, have been hunting for a 2016 TDI Lux or Exec for many months. I am potentially going to jump on one soon. I saw from a trailer forum a gentleman discussing his experience with the added emissions equipment from VW. Does this sound familiar to anyone, and has anyone else...

    Have a completely stock 2014 T3 R-Line. Found some Godspeed coilovers for it. Has anyone on this site had experience with Godspeed products? Thought about going with the H&R cup kit but with its 1.2"-1.4" or 40mm lowering potential its just not enough IMO. I currently have a 5.5" fender gap with...

    Hi all, I have a Touareg V10 TDi, in great working condition, excellent interior, but it does have 197K on the clock. Looking to sell for a fair price, but the valuations are all over the place. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help.

    Hi friends. I hope you had a lovely Christmas. I certainly didn't... My Treg has a fault code, Intermittent turbo control unit fault. I had my laptop in the car while on the move, and when I deleted the fault code, a slight increase of engine power could be noticed, but then fault code again...
  7. General Maintenance & Repair
    Bought my 2016 Treg TDI about a year ago, and absolutely love it. Living in SF, I park on a lot of steep hills which throws off the digital dipstick (always showing oil very low). I recently found out if you get the engine warm, park on a flat surface, open the oil cap to depressurize the...

    These are some lessons learned from removing my thermostat. Next up - replacing it! But that’ll be a different video. In the mean time, I hope this helps others do it a little easier next time.

    Hi. My Treg started to manifest some problems with the left hand side turbocharger. Some times it just cuts both of the turbos, only because of the No.2 turbo faulty code, and when it is an active error, even the output test cant move the control motor. When I fiddle around the connector and...

    I'm looking at purchasing a 2013 Touareg TDI LUX with 103,000 miles. I've never owned a diesel but read enough about these where I believe I want one. The one I've looked at is in really good condition and seems to run really well. I've read quite a bit about failing timing chains in the 3.0 TDI...

    I have a US market, 2009 MY, 3.0 TDI with the diesel-scandal fix on it. There's been some chat lately about intercoolers so I thought I'd have a look at mine to see what the possibilities might be. I was poking around under the hood trying to track where all of the intercooler piping runs when I...

    Hoping to become a part of the community with a V6 TDI (2004 - 2010). I have a flexible budget for a good example, ideally looking for one fully loaded. Located in Vancouver, Canada but willing to travel domestically for the right one. Unfortunately crossing the border right now is a no-go...
  13. Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Hello again. I seem to have another problem surfacing lately. The engine when starting up, mostly when cold, but sometimes when warmish also, starts what feels like 5 or 7 cylinders, then it grinds its way up one by one, and about a minute or two later all is well. I had two dead injector unit...

  15. General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi all, I've been following this forum for some time now as I've considered getting a Touareg TDI for towing abilities and the extended warranty and have had numerous VWs and Audis with good success in the past. Purchased a '12 Touareg TDI back in March with 70K miles on it and wow did I not...
  16. Off-Roading & Towing
    Im in the market for a offroading Touareg, question is should which i should get. I cant seem to find a TDI with air suspension, I mostly wanted the TDI because its more economical and heard its more reliable than the V8. Yet, the V8s have the rear locking differential that i have yet to see on...

    Hi all! I've been searching high and low for good 17" wheels for our 2012 (T3) TDI Lux and though that that Ultra Toil 450sbs would fit right up (5x130mm, 60mm offset, 17x8"). Low and behold I did not do enough research and, upon test fit, found that Lux models (apparently?) have larger brake...

    2007 2.5tdi. Sat for about a week and the battery went flat. After fully charging the battery, the car won't start anymore (engine won't turn over). When turning the key sometimes it makes a clicking noise under the bonnet, starter maybe? We have tried hooking it up to another car with jump...
