    Please help!
    Train to Bristol to picked up my B8 59 plate A4 2.0tfsi 75k on the clock full Audi service. MMI oil level had 50% before setting off 200 mile trip home.
    Woke next day like exited child. After 1hr driving MMI 0%. Bristol Garage states been sat for a while. Added the 1 litre as the car asked. Up to 90%
    Next day after 1hr driving 65 % oil. Then foot down and no power. Parking hand brake error come on traction disabled!!! Engine light on
    Vagcom showed all sorts. After checking MAF / turbo / ABS local Audi specialist found intercooler hose come off. Also found no 3 piston had oil in it!!! Very black spark plugs. Insist PCV is ok.
    Car drove away like new…smooth fast…..but oil 40% .
    Next day fingers crossed 50 miles driving….oil 20%!

    So car for 6 day….500 miles …. Burned 0.5 l oil already in it and have added 2 litres of my own…

    Help!!!!

    Oil consumption issues with the 2.0 TFSI seem to be a common compliant ...

    Link:- http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/audi-s4...d-b8-@68k.html

    IIRC in that thread I think Audi are aware/cover under warranty some stuff ...

    Ok had bit of a root around, there seems to be a software update for engine ECU which is checked for or done before they apply next fix which is piston rings.

    Their out of spec definition is engine oil consumption of more than 0.5 L per 1000 km (622 miles approx) from what I read.

    It is only done under warranty if not expired, it is not a recall.

    In the tech info for when they replace rings they state from MY12 (ie 2011) they optimised piston rings so the high levels of consumption don't occur.

    If you would like copies PM external email.

    thanks very much for time to reply.

    Audi said no recalls. Been told if piston rings are the issue there is no doubt alot of other seals/problems underline.

    What i want to know is how this happened? Car mint and full history? And if i spend £1k to repair will it happen again?

    Hi mate ...

    Yep it is not a recall I've said that in post 3 , it is a technical bulletin ...

    Technical bulletins are like guidance by manufacturer for VAG dealer servicing departments, usually formed from data collected from failures out in real world and testing IMO ...

    The piston rings are a production issue which has been resolved in MY12 (Model year 2012) model year is an American format which runs a year ahead of real year. So MY12 = 2011 production model/year ...

    Let's say you walked into Audi main dealer the service advisor will punch in your VIN, he'll cross ref you compliant against TPI/TSB database ...

    He may first suggest this may resolve issue :-

    Technical product information Transaction No.: 2024604/25
    Engine oil consumption too high - 2.0l TFSI (EA888) Release date: 29-Nov-2012

    That is title of the ECU update TPI / TSB ...

    If problem persists he may then next say this maybe the issue :-

    Technical product information Transaction No.: 2026749/8
    Engine oil consumption too high after completing TPI 2024604 - 2.0l TFSI (EA888) Release date: 01-Dec-2012

    This is the title for the one where they replace pistons/rings/conrods ...

    I have sent you extra info in PM ...

    Again this is my interpretation from your description/tech info/web posts ...

    Thanks again for taking the time to reply.
    Had an emmisions test today and its fine! zero all round! I was hoping with the oil consumption it would fail. Unless the cat convertor is soaking it up?

    Another thing the car "shuddered" when we turned the engine off????
    Anyway getting an engineer to look at it today ..not sure how he will prove 2.5 litres gone!!
    :-(

    I am going to start on new thread with the engineers findings but thought i would keep here to as an update:
    SO THE ENGINNER SPENT 5HRS CHECKING CAR. aLLSEALS OK, TURBO OK ..TOOK SPARK PLUGS OUT AND EACH ONE WET. (soz didnt mean to use capitals!)
    Emissions ok and a little amount of smoke in back. Took it out and like a new car! So why the oil consumption. Ciould it be the sensor is wrong in the car and ) on the MMI could really be 100%! so is it burning excess oil and the film on the pistons is carry over from the cam rod ? He put his stick in 585mm (numbr from another forum) and has 4" on the stick!!
    Can it run with 8litres of oil instead of 6.5? If i ignore the " please add 1 quart" alarm is there a low low level alarm?

    Thank you for getting things checked and updating, it will help another ...

    I feel sorry to hear your new purchase is giving you this issue ...

    If I was in your shoes perhaps I'd think of rejecting car and getting a later model ...
