I drive a 2001 audi a6 2.7t. It has approx 164,000 miles on it.
Problem: The last 3 times I have filled up my car with a full tank of gas it has only gotten ~290 miles. It usually gets ~400 miles/tank. On the last tank the estimated range on the car’s control panel has been fluctuating greatly, going down in 5 mile increments ever 1-2 miles and then jumping back up to above where it should be (ie showing 350 miles left on 3/4 tank.)
Question: What gives?
The power steering is going. When I brought it in for new tires the guy drove it around and said that the noise I was hearing (sort of like a rubbing noise) was the power steering and recommended a flush and possible replacement of the power steering.
Off and on leak of antifreeze. Some times it leaks out a bit, sometimes not.
Thanks for any help.
