Question about Audi Q7

5 Answers

2007 Audi Q7. Engine tumbling but won't start until after 3 or 4 attempts. Parked the vehicle, did not use for several weeks, ordered glow plugs and changed them. Now vehicle won't start at all. Direct wired the glow plugs, heated for 8 to 10 seconds and the vehicle started right away. Got the diagnostic scan done by the Audi company and the starting fault is not being picked up. What they have told me to do is to change the starter and the intake manifold flap motors. My immediate problem is that the vehicle cannot start in normal fashion, but if the glow plugs are manually heated the vehicle will start and run normally. Can't figure out how changing starter and flap motors will help considering that once the vehicle starts, everything else is normal. Thankful for nay suggestions.

    Thanks so much for the suggestion but already checked the glow plug relay (R1), the other relays, fuses etc. The hard starting problem exists only on mornings after the vehicle has been parked overnight. Once started in the morning, (via what ever means) there are no further problems during the rest of the day. Mileage on the vehicle is 62182 km. Current is not being received by the glow plugs for them to heat up (except if they are direct wired and manually heated).
    Will be thankful for any other suggestions.

    The need of tumble movement is to expand the turbulence level which favors legitimate and fast blending of new charge which prompts successful burning with decreased discharge. Producing critical vortex streams in an IC motor barrel amid the admission procedure creates high turbulence power amid the later phase of pressure stroke. BuyLeatherJackets

    The starter might not crank. If not anything happens when you switch the ignition key to the "Start" role, it manner that the starter motor would not turn over the engine. Maximum typically this will be as a result of a dead battery; right here is how to test the battery. .The starter motor itself or a starter solenoid may be bad.

I've changed my engine mounts 3 times on my 2004 A4 cabreolet and they fail within miles(start to vibrate & then within a week, severe knocking) the 2nd time, also changed the ****** mount, 3r

Engine mounts do not go bad in five miles. Sounds like you're treating a symptom and not the cause of a more serious issue. Are you sure all cylinders are firing correctly? That the severe knocking is not coming from your engine internals? Have you checked the steel around the engine mounting points for cracks or other damage? And just in case, if the mounts you are using are poly, are you lubing them before installation?

Hi, When jump starting this vehicle make sure that the Q7 is connected first, then connect to the jumper vehicle. Connect 1 lead to the positive on the Q7 and the negative to a good solid body part or engine part. This will then ensure that the vehicle will start on the jumper vehicles battery directly without going through the Q7 flat battery causing the electronics to strain.
Hope this helped.
