    Can I follow same procedure in Audi Q7 2009?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VB says:

    Ray, aren't Audi and VW the same company these days which is likely why they both use that engine configuration?

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sharon cliffman says:

    I bet the timing chain would be a nightmare to change.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars michelediane miller says:

    reeee vacuum hose under alternator

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kieran Defino says:

    You don't actually own an Audi if your coil connectors aren't all broken

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Haytham BuKhadra says:

    They could've made a replaceable sensor 😐

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars derdoktorund dasliebevieh says:

    Ray, I really appreciate these videos – they always show me which engines and vehicles to avoid for the best shape of my maintenance budget.
    Short version: All direct injection engines designed in Germany with exhaust gas recirculation.
    I would never buy a diesel anyway.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chevy Bull says:

    Why the American buy german cars? I can't understand this people.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Covelli says:

    As along time VW owner, I can say that the germans need to figure out vacuum and PCV systems.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KrazyRyzenPC says:

    OK, Water cooled Altnader, Never heard or seen that eva in me life, damn Germans LMMFAO,, make an alternator even more complicated and longer to replace, it better not be on the same coolant as the engine/ heater core and rad…. WOW nic job Germans

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Radcliffe says:

    Want you be glad when they switch over to electric motors ? And get rid of the add on !

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RJ says:

    5-6 hours of work, $100's in repairs, all for something that could be fixed by a dot of tape or plastic sealer

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Degeneracy says:

    Probably takes 5-6 for the inexperienced, as Ray himself said he had 3+hrs of footage to scrub through. So pretty close to the 5hr mark.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Dimwitt Flathead says:

    I know my suggestion is backyard mechanic method but wouldn't it be cheaper and faster if you use something similar to dap putty and black tape to fix the leak inexpensively?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sven Schwingel says:

    They actually call it a VR6 in Germany. It's basically an inline six with slightly turned "cylinder banks" allowing for some vertical cylinder overlap and thus a more compact design length-wise. It was first introduced by Volkswagen as a 2.7 litre in the Mk III Golf to be able to offer a six cylinder engine in a compact hatch. They then made 2.9s, 3.2s and ultimately the 3.6.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leigh C says:

    5-6 hour job, yet you were all done in less than 39 minutes, 46 seconds… I'm impressed 😉

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jan Kro says:

    The last bolt for the intake is hidden behind left tail light😁

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars abergbe1 says:

    Beautiful german engineering!!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Philip Brucker says:

    I've had Torx bits act as reamers on fasteners, it really can ruin a day.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Voss says:

    3 min repair a screw in the hole and a litle Hylomar or somthing and finish 😀

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Regdor says:

    Fore sure I don't want to work on such a mess…..The engineers that make
    such systems must be required to repair them B4 production……Something
    they are not taught in school..

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Jacobson says:

    Say what you like about Audi and the complexity and cost, but If you look under that car all parts and bolts are galvanized dipped. no rusty bolts or crap to deal with on Audi. Also its an Audi, Make sure you look at any procedure for work, even a tail-light and it will save you frustration.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Spacecoastz says:

    Horrible design of hoses, etc. Good job Ray.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kevin imp says:

    its an oddy

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john says:

    typical audi nightmare..

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rose White says:

    Electric cars are looking more sensible with every Rainman video!
    However decided cars need all the pipes, sensors, wiring?????????????????

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BG Outdoors says:

    Me and a few of my buddy’s work at a shop and depending on who talks to the customer gets the job. One day a newer bmw pulled up to the shop for something. I think it was a down stream o2 or something with one of the o2s. All of us stopped everything we were doing and took off into the back so the new guy who was cocky and acted like he knew everything got stuck with the job. Was a funny site to watch him struggle for 3 hours on a 45 minute job😂 it’s not that we couldn’t do the job but we just really didn’t want to do it and let the new guy have it😂

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Avery says:

    Those in line fives, always sound like a barrel of bolts! I've owned a few!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VladNicitel says:

    and that's exactly why i hate european cars and i'm lucky that i bought old us car, where most of work makes sense and is straight forward and you don't have to remove half of the car to do basic and easy job

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roy van Balen says:

    Those pliers are great. I work on mercedes cars and they make my life so much easier

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Silver Legend says:

    Videos like this make me thankful that I have never even considered buying Teutonic trash from Mercedes, BMW, VW et al.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars boeli space says:

    Looks like crack on intake manifold by dipstick upper bracket.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mic Glou says:

    "VW does this as wel"… hate to be the one, but ehhh… no shit Sherlock! It's a VAG engine… Volkswagen and Audi use the same engines.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ELA says:

    Liquid cooled alternator sounds expensive 😩

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars El Salvador says:

    Are current Audis the most complicated cars to work on ?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob R says:

    Wait were those slots on a german car? I thought they were suppose to be the pinnacle of precision engineering…. slots don't sound very precise to me 😁

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gary rowan says:

    This is a repair that most. mechanics would rather stand on their heads for the rest of the day. good job.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mister Mxyzptlk says:

    Audi engineers…making automobiles with materials that notoriously snap/break with regularity while worked on by a knowledgeable mechanic is flat-out inexcusable. …and Audi owners wonder why repairs are so expensive? And the insulting prices applied to parts? FOUR WORDS …"But a reliable Toyota."

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Dvorak says:

    I think my favorite words you say are, "More pry bar." Yep… definitely!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Lesinszki says:

    What an amazing job, great work, great video and entertaining!!!!! doo-dooo lololololo

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Krasimir Ivanov says:

    Audi nowadays … Vorsprung durch Plastik … desgned to fucking fail so they can overchage you on original VAG parts!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve McRichards says:

    Side rant: that's not a V6, it's more of I6, L6 or W6 (as you said). I just don't like manufacturers like Volkswagen and Audi thinking they can redefine terminology like V6 to mean something it isn't.
    A V design means you have either intake or exhaust coming in or out the V (hence the term!) and your exhaust or intake coming out or in either side cylinder head banks. V means you have two cylinder heads.
    Silly VW nonsense.
