re: Re: NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 98V332000 (Audi V6 fuel injector recall)

Ah! But then your VIN is a PN999999 which is a model year '93 100. My engine was produced in late '91 - early '92, but I'm excluded from the recall. If our fuel injector and o-ring part numbers are identical, then why is your car getting a new fuel rail and injectors, but mine is not?

Do you see my point? I think we're all in agreement that that the early build V6's have their share of problems, with the '92's taking the brunt of it. It seems unlikely to me that the injectors were changed in 1992, sometime between when my was built and yours was built, but retained the same part number.

I want absolute proof that my injectors are fine, so far I don't see that at all.
