I have a 2010 4-cylinder Audi A4 with about 90,000 miles on it. My car is suddenly running rough. It’s leaking oil and also makes a tapping noise. What should I do? Should I drive it to the shop?


If your Audi A4 is running rough and exhibiting the other symptoms you’ve mentioned, you should stop driving and tow the car to the shop. You may have a stretched timing chain, or a defective timing chain tensioner.
