Regular maintenance is essential to keep an Audi running smoothly and to prevent costly repairs down the road. The specific maintenance schedule for an Audi will vary depending on the model and year, but generally, there are certain service intervals at which more extensive maintenance is required, such as replacing the timing belt or brake fluid. It's recommended to check the owner's manual for specific instructions and schedule maintenance with a certified Audi service center. Our certified mechanics not only service Audis regularly, but we are also trained in the latest technology and know-how to troubleshoot any problems that can arise with your vehicle. We equip our technicians with the newest equipment so that new technology is never a surprise or issue for us.
AUDI Fuel Injection Servicing
Fuel injection services can vary from shop to shop and from cleaner to cleaner. We have used quite a few and have found the BG system to be superior to most. A service consists of running the vehicle until warm, and then the vehicle’s fuel system is disabled. The pressurized BG fuel system cleaner is then connected to the vehicle and the engine is started. The engine actually runs on the cleaner, allowing it to work through the injectors, intake valves, combustion chambers and exhaust valves. Any unburned cleaner goes by the oxygen sensors and through the catalytic converter.
We then disconnected the cleaner and reconnected the vehicle’s fuel system. After restarting and road testing, the engine control system is reset to factory settings, and any related service codes are deleted.
It is very important to inspect fluids, belts, tires, and hoses frequently. A visit to German Car Depot every 6 months or 6,000-7,500 miles to change the oil, and oil filter, adjust tire pressures and perform a comprehensive inspection
which can save you money over the life of your Audi. It could also save you the inconvenience of a breakdown. Call 954-921-1515 to schedule an appointment.
Audi DSG transmission fluid?
The recommended interval for changing the Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmission fluid in an Audi will vary depending on the model and year of the vehicle. However, changing the fluid at least every 40,000 miles or every four years, whichever comes first, is recommended. It's essential to check the owner's manual for the specific maintenance schedule for your vehicle, as well as any recommendations from the manufacture
Why OEM Audi brake parts?
Using Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Audi brake parts is generally recommended for several reasons:
Quality and reliability: OEM parts are manufactured to the same specifications and standards as the original parts that came with the vehicle. This means that they are designed to work well together and are built to last.
Compatibility: Using OEM brake parts ensures they will be compatible with the rest of the braking system in the vehicle. This can help prevent brake fade, poor stopping performance, or increased brake wear.
Warranty: Some car manufacturers may void the vehicle's warranty if you use aftermarket parts, by using OEM parts it will ensure warranty of the vehicle stay valid.
Performance: OEM brake parts are designed to the manufacturer's specifications and provide better performance than aftermarket parts.
Cost: In some cases, OEM parts can be more expensive than aftermarket parts, but the long-term savings can be substantial when you factor in the reduced need for repairs and the protection of your warranty.
After-market- Chain store linings can cure the dust problem but quite often create other issues. A shaking steering wheel as you slow from freeway speeds, and even when, not braking, can often be cured with new Audi brake discs/rotors. As the non-original rotors heat cycle from driving, they often become warped like an lp record.
The Audi rotors are cast from very soft and porous steel; they dissipate heat uniformly, and when the factory linings are used, the pores at the surface of the rotors collect and hold carbon from the linings to help adhesion and minimize vibrations (noise). Ever notice the way the rotors on your Audi rust in what seems like minutes after a car wash?
Also, sometimes squeaks can be heard on a rainy day. This is a result of washing the carbon away. Our recommendation is original brakes on your Audi unless you intend to compete. Remember to go easy on your new brakes for the first 200 miles. This will harden the lining materials and maximize the performance and longevity of the linings. Most brake jobs can be done the same day at German Car Depot. Call 954-921-1515 to schedule an appointment.Brake fluid
The brake system of your Audi uses a glycol-based hydraulic fluid. This fluid is “hygroscopic,” which means it will absorb moisture over time. Moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point and causes internal corrosion in the brake system. That’s why the fluid should be replaced when brake repairs are done every two years (regardless of mileage) as preventive maintenance. At German Car Depot,
we use a meter to check moisture and a pressure bleeding system to ensure all fluid is replaced and no air is introduced.Coolant
The coolant in your engine serves three essential purposes. One is to protect your engine from damage from freezing. Here in sunny South Florida, we typically don’t need to worry about freezing. The second is to keep the engine cool, which is far more important here. We all need to be cool, right?
The third is just as important, and that is to protect the engine from corrosion. One specific measure of protection is pH. If you have ever had a swimming pool, then you know about pH. pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. Liquids with a pH less than seven are considered acidic, while those with a pH greater than seven are considered basic (alkaline). A pH of 7.0 is neutral (like pure water).
The coolant pH in your Audi started at 8.5 and will dip into the six range after a couple of years. At this point, it’s doing more harm than good. Gaskets, hoses, and seals are no longer being protected – they’re being eaten! It’s a slow process but irreversible. It is crucial to replace the coolant with the correct type every three years. We use the factory zero phosphate coolant at German Car Depot and can replace it in about an hour. If your radiator is leaking or you see a green-colored liquid beneath your vehicle, bring it into our Service Center, and we will diagnose it quickly.
Audi Electronic steering rack
An electronic steering rack, also known as an electric power steering (EPS) rack, is a steering system for vehicles in which an electric motor provides assistance to the driver in turning the wheels. The motor is connected to the steering rack, which is the mechanical component that converts the rotation of the steering wheel into the lateral movement of the wheels. In an EPS system, sensors in the steering column and wheels provide feedback on the driver's inputs and the vehicle's speed and direction, allowing the software in the system's control module to adjust the level of assistance provided by the motor. Some of the advantage of EPS over traditional hydraulic power steering include improved fuel economy and less maintenance. Audi has EPS feature in most of their model as well.
The power steering fluid of your Audi is just as important as the coolant or brake fluid. The fluid is used to assist the driver when steering, but just as importantly, it lubricates the steering gear that turns the wheels. It is pumped from its reservoir by a belt-driven hydraulic pump through hoses and then to the steering gear. After the fluid passes through the gear it goes through more hoses to the cooler and then back to the fluid reservoir.
The absence of a filter can cause problems; if a pump or gear starts to fail, the debris is sent through the entire system, resulting in an expensive repair. The fluid, when new, helps condition the hoses and seals within the system. After a time, the conditioners break down, resulting in hoses and seals that become hard and brittle.
Power steering hose replacements are among the most common Audi repairs. Audi has no recommended service interval for replacing the power steering fluid. We recommend changing the power steering fluid at German Car Depot every 30k miles. Call 954-921-1515 to schedule an appointment.
