    Liqui Moly’s Top Tec 4100 5W-40 VW 505 01 approval. Another option if you need one. While I do use $$$ oil for severe duty, I haven't found any issues with this over 5 or so years of use in two...

    Thought I would throw in a log from today. Wouldn't you know it, the EGT sensor wasn't there yesterday. Otherwise, the only fault registering is the missing alarm horn. I have never had a...

    Thanks, I'm always ready to learn so have no concern about selling me a retune, it may be the answer after all. I'm mechanical (clanky) with a reasonable understanding of basic computer software and...

    I may have been obtuse. The "no DTC" just referred to no fault codes registered at that time. I have had the usual minor component issues come up in my ownership and at the time they registeded a...

    RossTech / VCDS. I get the full log and the only fault is the Alarm horn which I removed some years ago. Once restarted, runs and performs absolutely normally. Full power and no lights (and no DTC)....

    The dreaded engine limp mode

    I've had my RS6 for some 3 years. Put up 20,000 km in mainly lond distance driving in that time despite pandemic travel restrictions. Totally trouble free with two exceptions. In Nov 2020 I overtook...

    I use a fluidampr on my 2.7 RS4 with no issues. I believe that I read somewhere that the RS6 version wasn't as successful but I'll need to chase that up to see if I read it right. Good luck with the...

    Long long shots here. One might be the harmonic balancer. The whole drive train is designed around an auto, sub the manual and you have different harmonics.

    I'd agree with that, only the process has been muddied by the possible linkage issue so it really isn't that clear if it has ever been operating perfectly in the short time before this happened....

    Before you spend some time on removing the gearbox, it is worth doing a hunt as I have a vague recollection from years ago with the B5 RS4 and 01E gearbox that there were occasions when a different...

    Still not sure exactly which springs you have on the car, I'm assuming RS6 springs, in which case I would keep those. It would be a downgrade using S6 or A6 springs. I used Bilstein dampers with RS6...

    Good solution. I haven't yet made an improvement to my oil cooling and had been tossing up using one of the Serck range but that may be a good alternative. Dumping the AC or getting rid of the...

    Happy to say we aren't rest of the world then as we have the hot weather package, plus all the euro options the US seemed to have missed out on as standard. Many of you guys list your RS6 as a...

    More's the pity the connections and locations are totally incompatible. The price is certainly right. I thought they did custom radiators so they would be one off. Can't say I'm convinced extra...

    I use a CSF 7071 in the RS4. Why not contact CSFrace for a radiator. The RS4 OEM radiator uses an Auto system with the (01E manual) gearbox oil passing through the radiator. It's as hot here as...

    No doubt we all have variations in our setups but I haven't ever heard of the need to grind any section of the shift linkage. I'm guessing that you are absolutely sure that your whole linkage setup...

    Not as loud as I expected. Mine with the full race miltek is not too far off that between 1-2000 RPM. Really howls in the 5-7000 range under full throttle. Maybe my mufflers are different internally...

    Vastly different registration requirements here plus our historic is 30 years. I do a lot of longer distance so livability is a premium. Luckily we don't have regular inspections so you would need to...

    May not be the only reason but it still smacks of adjustment issues. There are a variety of linkage sets for the 01E, are you confident that your whole setup from shifter to gearbox is homogeneous. I...
