1997 A-6 - PCV valve location.

Thanks for writing back. not sure whatthe fault code was BUT audi dealer told me that it's the EGR valve (clogged).

There is no PCV valve on this vehicle I was told??

anyway, according to mecahnic no harm will come from NOT replacing EGR valve, emissions item only.

so......

thoughts??

If you want to locate the valve, let me know 3 letters of your engine code... different engines (even 2.8) have different locations.

I don't know what the fault code was. the technician said it was EGR valve BUT this is a $320.00 repair, I would just as soon take a crack at replacing the PCV if this engine has one. Tch said there is not.

can you tell me the three locations to look? 1997 A-6. 2.8 litre, build date November 1996.

Thanks in advance - Eric Quist ericbjorn@msn.com

Engine code, not error code. Engine code is like ACK, AGE, ALG... (you most likely have ACK 2.771 motronic).
