Common Audi Service and Repairs Performed by Our Master Technicians
Rough Running, Poor Fuel Economy, Activated Check Engine Light
A common problem on both Volkswagen and Audi’s is deterioration of the braided vacuum lines. When this happens it can cause a multitude of driveability issues such as rough running, poor fuel economy and performance, check engine light on and codes set in the ECU. We replace these lines with a quality vacuum line that lasts.
Rough Running on Direct Injected Audi's
One common problem with direct injected engines is a “carbon sludge buildup” on the intake valves. Restricting airflow into the cylinders causing a rough running and misfiring of the affected cylinders. This happens on direct injected engines because there is no fuel in the intake to keep the valves clean. Proper fix is to remove the intake manifold and remove the buildup without damaging the valves. The Auto Clinic has the tools to quickly perform this repair important repair.
Rough Running, Flashing Check Engine Light in all Audi Models
Rough running and the dreaded flashing check engine light are often caused by failing ignition coils. Misfires can cause damage to the engine and catalytic converter, and should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage and reduce your Audi repair expense.
Check Engine Light Without Noticeable Running Problems
The Audi engine’s control unit monitors and controls many systems, including the fuel system, or evap system. If the ECU detects a very slight leak in the fuel tank it will turn on the check engine light and set a fault code despite the engine running fine.
Most common problems that cause this to occur are a leaking gas cap seal, an evap system purge valve that is not closing all the way or a failed diagnostic leak detection pump. At The Auto Clinic we advise against simply “throwing parts on the car” without proper testing. There is more to this system than just the components mentioned, and any number of them can fail. As with all repairs, properly diagnosing the true underlying issue and creating an affordable repair plan is key to returning your Audi to its original performance.
Creaking Noise in Front End When Driving Over Bumps
The most common issue that creates this noise is the sway bar links. The joints in the links start to creak and the suspension amplifies the noise. While annoying, this is a relative easy fix. Also know to make creaking noises are the ball-joints themselves on the suspension control arms themselves. We can inspect the source of your creaking noise and pinpoint the necessary repair.
Clunking in the Front End, Especially Over Bumps and While Turning
The upper control arm bushings are common locations for tearing and splitting. The arms no longer are held tight in place and move around, which causes the clunking noise. These bushings do affect the alignment, and will cause accelerated tire wear. There are also other components in the front end that fail, so it is best to have your vehicle inspected before investing in replacing parts.
Engine Running Hot or Overheating
Although there are other components that can cause your engine to overheat one of the more common problems with Audi’s and Volkswagen’s are failed cooling fans. There are three type of cooling fans used: electric, viscous, and belt driven. Although the electric design is the most common to fail, the viscous fan can fail due to leakage, and the belt propelled type by the belt breaking due to age and condition and if the electric cooling fan in this design fails the belt driven fan will also not work.. Although most models have two primary fans, even a single failed fan will effect vehicle performance. Inoperative cooling fans encourage other cooling system components to fail prematurely due to overheating. The a/c compressor also relies on these fans to cool it, a failed fan can sometimes lead to an inoperative a/c system.
If you own an early 2000's VW or Audi, another common failure is the water pump. The water pumps were originally manufactured with a plastic impeller. Over time this impeller disintegrates and no longer pumps coolant. Thankfully when your water pump is replaced there are upgraded pumps that use a metal impeller.Windows Will Not Go Up or Down, and Crunching NoisesTo save weight and money, plastic rollers and guides and thin cables are often used in Audi vehicles. These components break and the windows stop working. We can diagnose the issue with your Audi’s window and offer affordable repair solutions.Brake Lights Remaining on, or Not Coming on at AllThe brake light switch tends to fail in Audi vehicles. Depending on the year of your vehicle, the part has gone through many changes and it is important to use high-quality brake light switches as opposed to aftermarket brake light switches.

Extremely friendly. Extra knowledgeable people. Good and fair prices. Nobody gives it for free. So they are very fair. Good place to go for parts and services!!!
I had a good experience there with my Volvo which not a lot of other mechanics seemed to know about because its a foreign car. They even took the time to break down exactly what they needed to fix my car and even showed me the parts that needed fixed due to being damaged that definitely needed to changed lol. Would I take my car back In the future for other issues? Of course!!
The best import shop in Mansfield.
Thank you for giving us piece of mind by going over the used car we were about to purchase.
We have brought various vehicles (domestic and imports) to The Auto Clinic (Mansfield, Ohio) for two decades. Beside exemplary work, Auto Clinic provides extraordinary customer service. You'll find timely, clear communication from everyone at the shop and work done expertly and on time!
I have been taking my cars to The Auto Clinic for over 8 years. I trust them to do the right thing and make me aware of future items to watch for. I travel from Columbus to have my cars maintained here. The knowledge and skill the technicians possess have saved me countless dollars. I find the price for parts and labor to be in line with other shops, but you cannot put a price on the experience and craftsmanship they deliver.
I've been taking my cars to Auto Clinic for at least 8 years and have always been pleased with their work. In addition, I trust them absolutely. As to their prices, I'm a car guy and I can say they are very fair. They've actually saved me money. I sent one person to them and they gave her a price, she went to another garage that gave her a lower bid. By the time she was done with the second garage she actually paid more than she would have at AC. You get what you pay for.
Great quality work. Worth the extra cash! Only recommend these guys!
