My 20,000 mile A4 2.0 FSI is noticable noisy on start up.

It sounds like the noise a worn hydralic tappet (lifter) makes on a high mileage engine, or a diesel engine knock.

It does smooth out after a mile or two, and the dealer says it's normal on an FSI engine.

Have any members experienced this with their FSI's

Yes, 2.0T is loud, especially at idle. If abnormally loud during a cold start, make sure right viscosity oil is being used.

Hi there,

I am now the proud owner of an FSI and have noticed the diesel rumble at start up too. Something to do with direct injection maybe??

I only found out it's meant to drink Super unleaded after I bought it. Anybody know if this affects (effects??) the fuel consumtion much. No worries though Super was the same price as the normal stuff in Sainsbury's the other day.

Enjoy

My 54k 2.0 FSI also sounds diesel-like on start up, like the old tappets, therefore would assume it a trait of the engine. I have been advised to use Super Unleaded 1 in every 4 fill-ups, or monthly depending on use.

My question: On tick over, either cold or warm, my engine is twitching and very noticeable in that it can jolt the car. It's pretty random, say 4 times in 20 seconds, but of concern. Anyone else?

PS - thanks for advice on replacing bulbs - the garage I have just bought this car from tried and failed loosing the screw cap and damaging the rubber seal. The brakelight is still out so 8mm socket set is next purchase.

My B6 1.8TQ always been noisy when started cold for approximately 1 minute.
And yes, it does sound like tapper. I think this also can be one of the valves for emission gas recirculation think...
I have 90K on it now.
