Default It's pretty reliable.

The stock K03s are really the only weak point. The 2.7T is well built for boost, coming stock with a forged crank, rods and pistons. The 6 speed manual in my A6 is a great transmission too, I love the ratios, especially top gear.

Default Matter of degree?

surfnturf,

It seems pretty obvious, from this thread and others, that there is indeed a set of issues with this engine. I guess it's just a matter of how much of an issue.

Specifically, there seem to be issues with both the water pump and with the cam adjusters. The WP is prone to pre-mature failure that can lead to more serious conditions (e.g., timing belt slip and possibly broken or bent valves). The cam adjusters have been found to leak oil on numerous occasions. To a less extent, it seems, cam seals have also been found to leak.

All that said, it seems that the remedy for all this is extra dilligence in what would be considered routine and/or preventative maintenance. Although it might be considered excessive by many, pro-active replacement of the WP BEFORE failure, possibly with an available metal blade unit, and replacement of the cam adjusters and regular intervals might be all that's required to mitigate these issues from occuring.

I think I can accept that

Regards,
ShWeb

Default It ain't no Toyota, if that's what you're asking.

Unfortunately, I'd have to agree with that - the engine just requires a little more maintenance than most engines. It is, however, making a lot of horsepower and torque through the use of forced induction. If it makes you feel any better, no one has broken the internals (yet...)

Default You can find a sport version of the 2.7T A6 with a 6 speed.

Just look. They will have this wheel package stock from the factory, have a better suspension(not great, but better), and be 6 speed. Most were in silver...sorry ;-)

Here is one in my favoriate color :-)

Default Re: 2.7T engine problems

Shweb, I've just come your route, from the I5T-20Vs as a 100% DIYer. After lurking and asking Qs for a year, decided that the '02 A6 2.7T 6spd may be second only to the 44 chassis, 3B/AAN engines in reliability (&gt;development years) but the A6 car in total is an order of magnitude more complex. Look at it as just a new challenge! Old? Your 200-20V is just well broken in! I'm keeping mine.

'90 90Q-20V 160K
'91 200Q-20V 210K
'02 A6 2.7T 6spd 70K
'88 Ford "Quatro" Tractor
Other Misc. Toys
