Audi A6 2.0tdi noise and judder

8 posts in this topic

Hi guys

I'm hoping someone will be able to help me with regard to a couple of issues I have with my car.

I'm hearing a noise which I believe stems from the judder, this occurs near to when I change gear. The thing is it doesn't always happen. The noise is very low but sounds like a steam train when it judders. The juddering only happens for a second and then its back to normal.

The last service, at the Audi dealer, picked up the front roll bar bushes as unserviceable. Could this be the issue?

Any help is appreciated

I doubt the bushes are causing the problem. Audi tend to use this as an excuse to get some work that would cost you about £170.00. but the job only takes about 30 minutes to do and the parts are pence.

There have been many Audi owners who complain about a judder when pulling away in first for example, but also comment on it not occuring all the time.

Could you tell us a bit more about the spec and age of the car, mileage etc so we may find another area to look in

Thanks for replying.

The car is a 2006 2.0TDi SE Avant with 120,000 miles on the clock.

I've had it for just over a year now and it was last serviced in Feb by Audi Camberley. It has a full ASH. All the tyres are relatively new and have a large amount of tread left. It's just passed the Belgian equivalent of the MOT and passed the UK MOT in April as well.

The majority of it's miles have been on the motorway. It started to judder when pulling away in 1st, this didn't happen all the time and hasn't occured for quite a long time now.

Any and all help is appreciated.

This is probably a pointless post but before my 2.7Tdi, I had a 07 plate 2.0 TDI A6 Multi.

Similar to you, on 1st, it would judder.

I went to 3 dealerships including Camberley and while Camberley found an issue with the shocks making noise, they couldn't fix the main issue with the juddering and other noises I had.

In the end, everyone got so fedup that my car was taken back from Audi and I got the 2.7.

The gearbox had recieved a number of software updates which helped but I have very good ears and could still hear sounds + feel judders

If you have a manual, could it be the Clutch and Dual Mass flywheel that is getting old?

It is a manual not the multitronic. I was hoping no one would say the clutch and dual mass fly wheel as I've read somewhere that they're expensive to repair.

I am in the process of buying a new Audi which i won't now see until September (all being well). What's the chances of it lasting until then? Not much knowing my luck!

I have to sell the car privately as well because Audi don't PX high mileage cars. I'm not happy selling a faulty car so i will either have to declare it or get it fixed, thats a grand either way!

If there is any other possible reason for this problem then I am open to suggestions.

Thanks for the replies so far, very much appreciated.

Well, the problem seems to have fixed itself. Haven't heard anything from it for an age now. I did read somewhere that it might be a carbon blaockage or something like that...don't quote me, I'm not a mechanic. So when I got the chance I took it onto the autoroute here in Belgium and put my foot down.

Seems to have done the job just fine. Only a few weeks before I pick up the new car, anyone out there want to buy a 06 plated Audi A6 Avant 2.0TDi SE with DVD SatNav & rear parking sensors, in grey (123k mileage). Send me a PM if you're genuinely interested and I will send you the details. Now to work out a price!
