re: Audi 100 (v6) Service problems
Sounds like your dad may have the misfortune of having his car
serviced by a somewhat typical pre-historic dealer mechanic. I
worked with so many of these idiots when I was a technician. Instead of
trouble-shooting the problem or actually understanding how the fuel system
works, they just continue to throw new fuel injection or engine parts at
the car in the hope that they "guess" right. Another possibility is that
because warranty repairs don't pay as much flat rate time as the customer
pay repairs many dealers have their "new" technicians with limited
experience work on warranty problems. Sounds like the lemon law may be
coming into effect if your dad has brought the car in more than three
times to fix the same problem. I would take the car to a different dealer
if possible or get someone more qualified at the existing dealer. Vacuum
leaks, misadjusted fuel mixture, MAP or MAF sensors, fuel pressure, fuel
quality, quantity etc can cause hesitation problems. A good technician
should be able to track it down for you.
