    14:35 min, yes it is made for a whole life cycle IF YOU USE AND BUY THE ACCURATE OIL AND SERVICE IT AFTER THE SCHEDULE, But this is exactly what the people are changing after the guarantee is over πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚! No oil anymore where a gallon cost around 2-4 times the regular price of 5W-30 full synthetic long-life oil, and they change it to a cheaper one! This is the result! The car (motor) was not meant to be filled with 5W-40 or even mineral oil! But its a standard result even with VW's or other Audi's! Or the coolant too, they use the wrong and cheaper one, or even the one for casted motors and then its a matter of time!

    I have a B5.5 passat, they have a oil screen in the pan. The wonderful engineers at VW decided instead of making the oil pan easy to take off like most cars, they decided to put the subframe across half the pan. So not only do you have to remove the subframe, you have to put 2 2x4 across the hood and secure the engine so it doesnt fall out the bottom and crush you. Das Auto

    Ah good old Audi service position. Something all Audi owners who work on their own cars hold dear in their hearts. Also much love for the Audi D-clip electrical connectors, because if you must destory them to release them then you get to buy new ones to destroy for next time! Thanks VAG! (LOVE my A8 but also hate it like my ex)

    I agree this is an unfortunate design if the proper oil and service has not been done. With the proper oil and service, screen buildup should not be an issue. The direct injection without a port injection supplement is a real problem with intake valve build up however.

    Inter coolerπŸ€” where do I start with VW on this design? That melting stuff you see Rich on this expensive vehicle is what the dealership calls debris. You can have all the scheduled maintenance you want, but they will try to say it is something you did. Just a heads up there is no fixing that. The dealership suggestion is a new engine.

    the only way to keep this car going without any issues with filters etc is changing your oil at least ones a year or at max 3000 km intervals. Anything less is going to create issues with clogged up filters as these engines create a ton of carbon build up inside the engine and the only way to keep this carbon from building up and settling down on the internal parts is flushing more regular with fresh oil since modern oils like Castrol & Shell have the additives that will loosen all the crude and keep it from clogging up filters. I have a V10 myself and was able to safe my engine from a clogged up oil intake screen. Only 2% of the intake holes where still visible/open the moment I pulled my oil pan. This is an issue I have seen since 1986 with the Audi 200 turbo and still up to this day is an issue when you don't do regular maintenance as in changing your oil more regular. Obviously the same goes up for our steering control and transmission oil.

    Oil screen wasn't translucent because there was oil in it held in by surface tension. Blast it out with brake cleaner and it'll be translucent. I would say put it back in

    The mouse tribute thing...I was in TEARS!! LMAO! As for those clamps, depending on the pressure of the system, you can replace them with regular serviceable clamps. The only reason they are typically used on OEM is because it is fast on the assembly line. Servicing is an afterthought...as you are finding out.

    Cut out the screens on those turbo filters and reinstall them so oil can pass through freely and then put small in-line filter’s that are easier to get to further back by the oil pump that feeds the turbos

Make the filter flanges without filters and change your oil every 3k to 4k miles you should do wellπŸ‘

    Those pipe crimbs are slightly faster to build in the factory and during service, you can just put those in "misc parts" so nobody else suffers but the car owner. And he or she will probably find this out only after the warranty period is already over so factory doesn't mind.
