Audi FSI High Pressure Fuel Pump Failure

Audi/VW 2.0T FSI High Pressure Fuel System Repair
  • Project Details

    Audi/VW 2.0T engines found in 2006-07 models suffered early on from a failure of the high pressure fuel system. Specifically, the mechanical high pressure pump, driven by the intake camshaft, can get damaged as a result of the cam lobe wearing onto the cam follower. Read the TSB here.


    The symptoms from this failure will be obvious. It will start with a Check Engine Light on. Driveability symptoms will be there, rough idle, low power to name a few. The pictures below are from two different cars we serviced recently that had the same problem. One was a 2007 VW Passat and the other a 2006 Audi A3. Most recently, we had an 06 Audi A4 with the same problem. All three with the FSI 2.0T engines. .


    All three failures have been extreme failures, resulting in replacement of not only the high pressure fuel pump, but also the intake camshaft. The underlying cause of the problem has been found to be the intake camshaft lobe. The new "revised" cams have a hardened lobe that should prevent this failure in the future. Using the correct spec synthetic oil is also VERY IMPORTANT!


    Since the intake camshaft has to be replaced, careful inspection of the timing belt and all related timing components has to be done.


    Making matters even worst is the fact that these high pressure fuel pumps have been in back order for some time. This can delay the repair for days, and sometimes even weeks.


    Once everything is re-assembled, a quick adaptation of the fuel system is done with VW/Audi software, fault codes are cleared and the vehicle is ready to hit the road!

"This place is by far, the best mechanic I've ever dealt with...and I have VW, so I've known a lot of mechanics. Their invoices and estimates are really clear and easy to understand. I've never left Orion feeling like I've been over-charged or lied to. And I've never been made to feel guilty for not having something done to my car that I can't afford. The whole staff is very kind...they even send me Christmas cards! These are genuine people who know what they're doing and it shows in their work."

"Orion has provided me the best automotive care I have ever experienced in my life over the past few years. Marlon took his time to explain the diagnostic tests performed on my BMW 325i, the results found and the repairs that were needed for the car. I never felt like I had been taken advantage of or manipulated; as I have in the past with other dealerships and mechanics. In fact, the last time I went to Orion, Marlon saved me thousands of dollars in car repairs by discovering that I had an Easy Care extended warrantee information (I was completely unaware I had a policy). The process of having the claim approved and submitted took extra time and yet Orion did it all for me; they went the extra mile. I was truly amazed. Orion Automotive is an honest, caring specialist that hase gone above and beyond to provide excellent service to me and my car. Thanks Orion!”

"Best and most honest mechanic you will ever find. If you've got a VW, don't take it to the dealership, take it here. His prices are perfect, and you won't find better service anywhere else. He worked on two of my VWs for 4 years. I've just moved to Dallas and I have to say, Orion is in the top 5 for things I miss about Houston. And I love Houston. Thanks Orion!”

"When I came to Houston I bought a beautiful, used 2001 Audi A4. At that age it does need some attention from time to time. So I did a lot of research for a good workshop, and I decided to go with Orion Automotive... Their prices are fair, the quality of the work is very good, they are reliable, and they never do things that don't need to be done. The fact that each time I get there I see more and more cars there confirms that other people have the same impression like me. This is the place to go if you have a European car in or around Houston.”

"...Specializing in imports, this place should be the primary example for all other auto repair shops with regard to customer service, quality of work and price. I cannot tell you how many times I had to go to this place as my piece fell apart. It was something new, almost every freaking day..."
