Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 2 years ago.
Thank you. The first thing that would concern me is that it sounds like the cam timing is off. This is going to cause a number of these codes. Have you every had the timing belt changed? How many miles are on the car?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

This car doesnt have a timing belt, Audi went to timing chain. 105,000 miles... some online research is implying the chain may have jumped and taken out a couple of valves... I hope not... it references the right bank having no compression so I suppose I should check that first? but the engine isnt making any noises that I would expect from bent valves and smells like it is getting to much gas...thoughts?
