Ok my stupid check engine light was on again for that secondary air injection thing. UGHH i changed the vacume hoses and it worked fine for 3 weeks and it came back on!!!!
car runs Just fine. Now Bill Cooke Imports is doing diagnostics on it and they cant find the problem...they are charging me money for running diagnostics!!!!! now its upto 200 dollars just for that and no fix in sight!!!
they are telling me it could possibly be a combi-valve...what is that? help.
From time to time I get the "Flow to low" error message, but I just use the Vag-Com and clear it.
I have given the hoses a good look (ousides) and everything looks good and the car works just fine.
Mabe the Vag Com software would be a better investment than the service fees.

..nobody seems to know what these tiny vacumm hoses do!!! sometimes i wish i invited these engineers over for a man-to-man talk and show em how to make cars...Tozo will also be invited.
ok i guess that "show em how to make cars is prolly over the top." but still ughh so annoying.
yes Vag Com is the best. Next time when I get another NEWER audi...ill make sure to invest 200 bucks on vag com software. I still dont know what else theyll find on my baby but my wallet is crying for the time being. its upto 250 bucks now and they still havent found the cause for the secondary air flow issue. Im gonna slap someone real soon.

...they removed THREE SMALL pieces of vacuum tubing (the original cloth ones) that was attached to the valve...and replaced it with THREE SMALL rubber hoses and erased the code.
That was the ISSUE..i could have told them that..ne way thank god they didnt come up with more problems...no this baby is up for sale hence i freaked out about the codes.
Shes needs to find a new home within 8 days. =/ i am leaving the country for a while and shes looking for a new GOOD home who will take care of her like she was his own daughter.
