Audi FSI Carbon Cleaning

Audi FSI Carbon Cleaning

Carbon build up on Audi engines such as 2.0 TSI/FSI, 3.0 TFSI, 3.2L V6 FSI and 4.2L V8 FSI are inevitable. The by-products of the engine combustion process contains carbon deposits that looks like soot, is constantly being recirculated through the engine. Overtime these carbon deposits will build up on the intake valves. When this happens the car's fuel economy will be degraded then leading to loss of engine performance. In order to clean off the soot deposits, we start by removing the intake manifold to gain access to the intake ports. We then blast each intake port with crushed walnut shells under high pressure, a procedure our repair shop uses known as walnut blasting. This particular car had a rough idle, drove sluggish and had a misfire during acceleration. The excess carbon was preventing the intake valves to close properly ... read more

DSG Transmission Oil Change

DSG Transmission Oil Change

A DSG transmission is a sophisticated piece of engineering that requires regular oil changes. VW's direct shift gearbox (DSG) is a 6 speed dual clutch manual-like transmission that automatically shifts. It has internals similar to a manual transmission with a "brain/valve body" called mechatronics which shifts it. If the gearbox oil is dirty it will cause premature wear to DSG internal parts and affect the performance. Dirty oil can overheat the gearbox or cause the clutches to burn out. This will lead to poor gear selection, loss of power and transmission failure. The DSG transmission requires a fluid and filter change every 40,000 miles. The internal clutches and mechatronics are also lubricated by the fluid. Smoother shifting can be felt after a DSG oil change. S-tronic is Audi's name for the same transmission ... read more

BMW N52 N54 Electric Water Pump Repair

BMW N52 N54 Electric Water Pump Repair

Gone are the days of a engine belt driven water pump on late model BMW's. The BMW engines inline 6 cylinder N51 N52 N54 N55 are equipped with electric water pump. This allows the DME to fully control and modulate the coolant flow through the engine without dependency on RPM. This electric design allows for engine power output efficiency and balanced cooling responsibilities for the engine. More cooling power is required on demand for turbocharged engines such as the E90 E60 N54/N55 vehicles. Failing Water Pump Warning Signs The electric water pump tends to fail after 50,000 miles and the early warning signs are the yellow engine temperature light which will then turn red when the car is overheating. The heat will no longer blow hot due to low coolant circulation and the coolant level is below minimum. Once the water pump fails the car will enter fail safe mode to prevent engine damage. The common fault codes stored in the DME are 2E82 Electric ... read more
