RS6 V10 Engine Out


Recommended Posts


Missed my S8 so much that after 12 months with a Legacy (shame I hear you shout) I bought an '09 RS6 Avant (yeay!).

So with a 1 year Audi warranty I pick up Crankcase oil seal leak so the engines coming out tomorrow.

So with the S8 - the received wisdom was to replace cam belt and water pump while the engine is out.

Any advice for the RS6? I know there's no cam belt to worry about. Have heard about oil hoses which would normally mean front off. Anything else?

Any suggestions really appreciated.

Not sure where you are based but oddly enough I was having a chat with Simon at AMD (in Woking) earlier today who said he does loads of V10 engines now, maybe he is worth a call. He also explained that to sort out the MAF sensor is an engine out job!
