Customer Question
I have an Audi...

I have an Audi A4 Quattro. I changed the air filter and started the car. RPM went slightly below 800 RPM and started to stutter. Then the check engine light came on. So I put the old filter back in and everything remained the same. It clears up after running it for a while.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your A4 quattro?

2007

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your A4 quattro yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am poor so yes I am trying to fix it. I checked to see if any line had come loose and found none
