    Hibernated 2003 Audi RS6

    So fellas I wanted to have my Audi serviced and engine removed to install a new Torque Converter, we all know that they go bad and it is no quick fix. So with my car ,it would start and cut off, the codes were all over the place, but in the pictures I want you all to know I had a little friend with a new family staying in my car rent free that mess me up bad, but during my trip to the dealer they slept safe and sound here is why, they lived under the intake, it wasnt until I removed it to replace the gasket that I found them. So for everyone who stores there car in the garage or outside don't give up on your car until you check everything. The dealership told me I needed a new engine , even though the car still started. Anyway my car is back on the road with a new Torque Converter and now completed 3 inch exhaust system and X pipe you gotta love this Car

    We had my daughter's boyfriend's Subaru in our driveway for a month, not driven, and when checking on a dead battery found this rat nest in the engine bay. My RS6 sits close to it outside, but fortunately the rat preferred the Subaru!

    My RS sits inside my shop most of the time. I just recently found out I had a mouse problem inside the shop.

    For some reason, they prefer my RS over my B5 S4 and my friends B8.5 S4. I've found wire damage under my back seat of my RS. Fun times.

    Bad enough that I have wires self disintegrating...I don't need any help from rodents!

    Fortunately just a few connectors that I could resurrect and the SAI pump that I'm deleting....



    At least you had a reason to repair the "inevitable to fail" suction jet pump!

    Reminds me of my Mk1 and Mk2 VW days with all the ground wires that would disintegrate inside the sheathing...you had to feel along for the crunchy spot and cut it out along the way!

    Why are you taking an 18 year old car to a dealer for service?
