Customer Question
Hello, its a 2009 Audi...
Hello, its a 2009 Audi 2.0L TFSI with an oil pressure issue. So far I've changed the oil pump, oil control valve. The oil pressure drops to nil at idle when warm but raises with revs. I've heard that the intermediate shaft fails causing this issue. Thoughts? Thanks.

This is fairly common to these engine and yes it could be the hex drive in the balancer shaft assy. It can spin, so although the chain is on, the oil pump isnt driven. You need to take the hex shaft out of the pump (small circlip) and see if the edges are worn off.

Need new balancer shaft assy + modifed gears + modified sump required if this is the case etc.

My apologies, it's actually a 2012. Does this also apply to the second gen TFSI's?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
This would be the early gen FSI models. I'm referring to the TFSI models..
