Hello I wanted to know if anyone could answer a question for me. I did this to my vehicle and replaced those gaskets but I’m still getting a leak. I also am missing the A compresser and that shaft that goes into the a compressor would oil leak from there? Thanks in sdvance

Hello Marco, can’t thank you enough for these Acty videos I just purchased a 95 HA3 and I have been copying some of the upgrades you have been doing on my truck. Very helpful! I have a question: did you replace the coil springs because the struts were not functioning? My struts need replacing but I cannot find aftermarket or Oem parts available. Would just replacing the springs be enough? I replaced the rear shocks with he bilstein shocks you used and those work great but now the back is higher. Also should I get a lift kit? I’m driving mostly on street. Thanks for any help!

I have a 2013 S6 and my pumps went at 102k. It had an intermitent extended crank situation but shop was unable to find the problem. On the way to the shop to have motor mounts replaced It started running rough, got a TERRIBLE gas smell and the light went on. BOOM, gotcha now fuel pumps. Audi tech tells me this is revision 14 for those pumps. Changed pumps and oil, still has a little bit of smell. Going to try to change oil again and see what happens, I hope I don't have a bad new pump. I destroyed an engine once that dumped too much fuel in the oil (ring gap of.190' is bad, lol), hope I didn't do too much damage to this engine.
