C6 Audi A6 Timing Chain Issues

The Audi A6 C6 is a midsize luxury car produced by German automaker Audi between 2004 and 2011. Marketed as a blend of affordable luxury and solid performance, the Audi A6 sold well in both the United States and Europe.

The Audi A6 C6 is available in both a sedan and wagon body style. The wagon is marketed separately under the name Audi A6 Avant. Standard features on the Audi A6 C6 include daytime running LED headlamps, leather seats, passenger and driver side airbags. Both models offer petrol and diesel engine variants, with a range of horsepower and performance to suit a variety of buyer wants and needs.

One of the issue Audi A6 owners have reported is problems with the timing chain on their vehicles, even vehicles with less than 5,000 miles on them. This was especially true with the Audi A6 earlier models from 2005-2007. Audi owners reported loud knocking or clunking sounds coming from the engine compartment, or at times the engine would run rough or experience a misfire. Any of these problems are good reasons to take your Audi to your nearby German auto import specialist, to have the engine checked out and the codes read to determine the cause of the issue.

Prompt attention to any of these symptoms is a must to prevent further engine damage to your vehicle. If left unchecked, engine failure and an expensive engine replacement could be the result. Timing chain adjustments are relatively easy solutions that your independent Audi service mechanic can perform quickly in order to get your car back on the road, running like new.

Search for a local, independent Audi repair shop with Audi mechanics that have dealer-level expertise at a fraction of the expense.
