Disadvantages of the Audi CCTA engine

  • Over the entire period of production, the motor has been modernized more than once and its reliability has grown.
  • At first, the main problem was the timing chain, it did not serve even up to 100,000 km.
  • The engine quickly overgrows with soot and requires periodic decarbonization.
  • Also, the crankcase ventilation system regularly clogs and oil consumption appears.
  • Not the most outstanding resource here is the ignition coils and the water pump.
