JA: Is there anything else important you think the Audi Mechanic should know about your Audi?

Throwing P1136 fault codeprevious owner installed K&N oiled permanent air filter
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.
I see, thanks. The cold air intake shouldn't effect the MAF as long as the MAF sensor is hooked up and in place. It is possible that it's bad though. Also if it runs good, most likely the fuel pressure is up to par. Does the code come back after clearing it and driving some?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Should I try cleaning/replacing the MAF?If that were the source of my code, would it not throw additional codes?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How soon will the check engine light go out after I find and fix the problem. ......or will I need to manually rest set that?
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.
A phone call would not be in your best interest. I am not able to draw diagrams or give instructions over the phone..If you accept my additional service request for your email address, you can give me your email in a private info box and I'll send you the test instructions in a PDF file, the file is rather large. You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it. I do not have access to your email address,

What is the "front flange? "
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.
That is normally the front part of the exhaust pipe, where it bolts to the engine.
