A client recently came into the shop with the complaint that her 2013 Audi Q5 was running rough and was losing power. With 66,000 miles on it, this seemed too soon to be having this kind of power loss. After diagnosing the car, which in this case meant removing the intake manifold to inspect the injectors, we found what is rapidly becoming a common problem with the Direct Injection engines, carbon build up.
When cars experience issues with carbon build-up, the build-up must be cleaned out of the engine. Most auto repair shops can perform this kind of service but it can be costly, depending on the type of car and the work required to remove the build-up. If your car is having any of these problems, have your repair shop check it over and recommend what can be done to solve the immediate issue and over the long term to protect your engine and keep your car on the road.
Here at Autohaus, we recommend preventative steps be taken to stop this from happening, one is using the BG Fuel /Air induction Products to keep that engine running clean. One of the benefits of this service is that it is backed by the Lifetime BG Protection Plan™ if the initial service is performed within 75,000 miles/120,000 km. To maintain coverage, get a BG Fuel/Air Induction Service every 15,000 miles/24,000 km!
