I have a 2007 A4 2.0T with 121K miles. The car is burning

I have a 2007 A4 2.0T with 121K miles. The car is burning oil at a fast rate. The last three times I added a quart, I got 418 miles, 636 miles (unusual - for me - round trip from Hartford to NYC and a 100 mile in-state round trip), and 359 miles. I've been reading about problems with piston rings with this model, and am concerned that may be the cause, or perhaps the valves (or maybe a combo). The engine has good power, with occasional blackish smoke under heavy acceleration. The car looks new, inside and out. If the garage/dealer were to recommend a valve job and piston ring replacement, would I be better off just driving it until it starts running rough (query, how long that may be), and then getting a remanufactured or new engine for the car? The camshaft was replaced under extended warranty at 117K (shortly after which the oil consumption increased by about 50%). The turbocharger was replaced one year ago. I have dropped about $6K in engine-related repairs in the car over the past 2 years. Your thoughts?Paul

I have an Audi a4 1.8t. It is making a ping noise. Pulled up

Hi I have an Audi a4 1.8t. It is making a ping noise. Pulled up codes p0333 and p0328 for the knock sensors. I got it yesterday and it had a slight noise to it. Thought it was just the natural sound of the motor. I made a mistake of putting regular low octane fuel in it and it got a lot worse. I put octane booster in and immediately refueled with high octane fuel. It's still making the noise. What should I do?

2006 audi A4 avant Quattro 2.0T FSI Have a code for fuel pressure regulator sensor/range/performance. I put on a new fuel filter and the code has returned. I am using alldata and according to them I am supposed to have 12V+ at pin 1 on the two wire connector going to the pressure regulator if that is what that thing that sticks out of the high pressure pump is. The voltage I measured at pin 1 was 2.5V. I need to figure out this code and get the light out. Need help, thanks, Jack

Customer: I went to Audi to check the check engine light, and

Customer: I went to Audi to check the check engine light, and they told me the problem was with the camshaft sensors. They told me I had to buy 4 sensors, but the person in charge of repairing it, said that only two sensors were needed. He doesnt know if there are 2 more sensors hidden somewhere or if Audi just sold me 4 sensors. JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Well basically that is just it. I would like to know how many sensors must be in an Audi Q5 2010 JA: OK got it.
