A Beast in Wolf’s Clothing: 750HP 2021 Audi RS7

750HP 2021 Audi RS7

Out of the Box the All new 2021 Audi RS7 is already an Apex predator within the super sedan market! Being powered by a twin-turbo V8 pumping out 591HP & 590 TQ and being put down to the ground as efficiently as possible thanks to its legendary Quattro all-wheel drive for most that is an ample amount of performance for a family sedan.

However, the great thing about Audi is that they tend to severely over build their powerplants thanks to modern building standards and the current manufacturer horsepower war that is only getting crazier by the model. That equates to stronger and more efficient drivetrains that leave a lot more left on the table performance wise that can be unlocked reliably with just a few modifications. And that is where our friends at DME Tuning and we come in.

Thanks to the addition of a set high-flow downpipes and a DME Tuning stage 2 tune we were able to bring this Autobahn Brute up to 750HP & 740TQ!! That makes for one monumentally quick super sedan.

And what makes it even more impressive is that all of the creature comforts and reliability you’ve come to expect from high end luxury vehicle is still intact. You could legitimately drive this beast around town and to the store just as you would with any other car. Only difference is when it comes to the moment you put the pedal all the way to the floor you are instantly sent to crazy town and you it’s mayor!

This dual personality formula is something Audi has already made famous when they started their RS program. It was our job just to simply enhance those characteristics to maximize the overall driving experience for our customer.

If you are looking to take your vehicle to that next level of performance, give us a call! Our team will be there to help guide you through the entire process of adding reliable performance to your vehicle.

What Causes Your Audi’s Check Engine Light to Illuminate From Expert Mechanics in Atlanta

Audi Check Engine Light

The check engine light can be referred to by many names such as EML (Engine Management Light) or MIL (Malfunction Indicator Light.) Luckily, as a driver, you don’t need to know the ins and outs of motoring terminology. You simply need to know what to do should the check engine light illuminate in your Audi. In this article, we’ll be taking a closer look at how the light works and the different factors which can cause it to illuminate.

How the Check Engine Light Works

You Audi has an onboard computer which is known as the Powertrain Control Module, or PCM. The job of the PCM is to monitor the signals by various sensors in the engine system. It also tweaks engine and transmission function to help improve performance and achieve better fuel economy.

The PCM is able to test the function of the various systems of your engine. If it notices a fault with any of these which compromises engine function or puts the safety of the vehicle at risk it will turn on the check engine light and store a fault code in its memory. There are hundreds of different codes that the PCM can use to highlight the exact nature of the problem. These codes can be read using a diagnostic reader which allows the individual working on your Audi to identify the problem quickly.

Common Causes of Check Engine Light Illumination

There are many factors that can cause the check engine light to illuminate. In fact, most forms of engine-related part failure may trigger the warning light. However, this doesn’t mean that the light should ever be ignored.

Remember, the check engine light is a signal to the driver of a problem relating to the engine, the most expensive part of your car. While oftentimes this is due to a minor issue, running the risk of serious engine failure simply isn’t worth it. Let’s take a closer look at some of the common reasons that can cause check engine light illumination.

Age

The likelihood of certain types of failure depends upon the age of your Audi, as part failures caused by wear and tear become much more likely. In fact, when your car passes a certain age, you can almost guarantee that check engine light illumination is due to a particular part due for replacement as opposed to parts failing prematurely or becoming faulty.

Operator Error

Oftentimes check engine light illumination can be due to driver error. A loose-fitting gas cap, for example, can allow fuel vapors to leak from the engine system which the PCM can view as a gas leak, leading to warning light illumination. Therefore, when you visit the pumps make sure your gas cap is tightly secured before driving away.

Maintenance Necessities

Other basic maintenance factors, such as low engine oil, can also play a part in why the check engine light has illuminated. Make sure your drivers-side floor mat fits correctly and is correctly secured, as a poorly fitting and moveable mat can hamper with your gas and brake pedals, causing the PCM to assume an issue.

Spark Plugs

Aside from driver error, probably one of the most common and easiest to fix causes of the check engine light are worn out spark plugs. Spark plugs are used inside your engine to pass a spark which ignites the fuel. The spark used is high-voltage and wears away at the tips of the plugs over time. This causes the gap to widen between each set of plugs making transferring a spark much more difficult. This leads to an increased rate of misfires and stalls causing the PCM to detect a problem.

Other parts which may cause the check engine light to illuminate include:

  • the O2 sensor
  • vacuum leaks
  • the MAF sensor
  • ignition coils
  • leaky purge valve
  • leaky vent valve
  • the air/fuel ratio sensor
  • the EGR valve
  • failed catalytic converter
  • false error code

Detecting Aston Martin Transmission Problems With the Help of Atlanta’s Expert Mechanics

Detecting Aston Martin Transmission Problems With the Help of Atlanta’s Expert Mechanics

Your Aston Martin is a luxury sports car that is designed to perform at the highest levels. It is engineered by some of the best professionals in the world and made from quality parts. If well-maintained, your Aston Martin will run like new for many years. However, no car is immune to transmission issues, which are dreaded by virtually all drivers because they are expensive to fix and very inconvenient. In this article, we will examine a few of the potential problems you may experience with your Aston Martin’s transmission and what you can do about them.

The Transmission

A vehicle’s transmission is basically a gear box that transfers the power of the engine to the wheels of your car. Whenever you put your car in drive or change gears, you are making use of your car’s transmission. It is a closed system of gears and gear trains that require proper lubrication to operate correctly. When your Aston Martin’s transmission is failing, there are a number of symptoms you may experience, including gear slippage and rough shifting. Let’s look at a few of the problems you may have with your car’s transmission.

Transmission Warning Light

You may notice that there is a transmission warning light illuminated on your car’s dashboard. Although this doesn’t necessarily mean there is a problem with your transmission, it should nudge you to bring your Aston Martin in for service by a professional mechanic. If the transmission warning light is illuminated while you are experiencing any of the issues listed below, then there is most likely a problem with the car’s transmission, and it needs to be fixed right away.

Rough Shifting

Rough shifting is a sure sign of transmission problems. It may seem like your car doesn’t want to shift when you make it. This can manifest as difficulty getting the car into a certain gear, or you could feel a jerking motion when shifting, sometimes along with an audible clunking sound. If you are driving down the road and feel the car lunge when you shift, then this is an indication of transmission issues. Alternatively, the car may have trouble accelerating to your desired speed.

Transmission Slippage

You may be driving along in a certain gear and notice that your car suddenly changes gears for no known reason. This is known as gear slippage. It typically occurs when there is not enough fluid in the transmission to provide sufficient hydraulic pressure to keep your desired gear engaged. You may also hear a change in the sound of the engine when this slipping occurs, generally characterized by rising pitch. It may also feel like your car is not performing with the same amount of power that it normally does.

Delayed Engagement

Delayed engagement occurs when you shift from park into drive, but the car does not move forward when you give it gas. Even though the shifter is in drive, the transmission is not actually in gear, and the engine will rev without providing power to the wheels. Alternatively, you might shift into drive, start giving it gas, and then the car suddenly lunges forward when the drivetrain finally engages.

Transmission Fluid Leak

A transmission should never leak fluid. If it does, this could certainly cause it to malfunction or even fail entirely. The color of transmission fluid ranges from bright red to dark red or brown, distinguishing it from other automotive fluids. If you notice a leak of this color fluid coming from the undercarriage of your Aston Martin, you should bring the car to be inspected by a qualified professional right away.

Steering and Suspension Systems Service & Repair

The fact that cars require constant maintenance and repairs to function at peak performance is not surprising. Owning a car in the modern-day world can be a necessity in some areas and the car owner must be proactive in the maintenance. That means having a mechanic, you can trust and who specializes in the service and repair of your vehicle type. Within this article, we will discuss how you can detect faults in your vehicle’s steering and suspension system and how to maintain it.

The steering and suspension system in the car is very important to the general functionality of the car as it helps you to enjoy a comfortable and stable ride while allowing you to accelerate, turn, and apply the brakes safely. It also absorbs the bumps and potholes often found in the road surface. Driving a car with a faulty steering and suspension systems is quite dangerous as it will disrupt the ability to control with ease and could ultimately lead to accidents.

Indicators of Faulty Steering and Suspension Systems

The Overall Stability of The Car Is Disrupted:

once there is a fault in the steering and suspension system of your car, one of the most likely symptoms you should notice is a disruption in the overall stability of your car. The car might begin to pull to one side, it may squeak during turns or one side of the car may sit higher than the other. To test for a disruption in your car’s stability, park the car on a level surface and do the bounce test on all sides of the car while paying attention to how many times it will bounce. If any side bounces more than three times, then there is likely a problem.

The Car Ride Gets Bumpier:

another symptom of a faulty steering and suspension systems is that the car ride gets bumpier than usual. This points to some wear in the components of your cars steering and suspension system, thus reducing its capacity to absorb bumps and shakes as designed.

The Car Handling is Poor:

You might notice that the handling of your car is becoming poorer as well difficult to control the car. This may be pointing to a problem in your cars steering and suspension system such as incorrect alignment of the wheel or a bad steering response and sometimes you might also notice a pull or drift when making turns with your car, accompanied by a kind of knocking sound.

You might also notice that your car tires are wearing out in an uneven rate which isn’t supposed to be so as the tires are supposed to wear in an even rate. This too might be a symptom of a faulty steering and suspension system in your car.
