      My crankcase vent valve failed. I'm curious if a split diaphragm in that valve will pressurize the crankcase and heads or create a vacuum in it. The failure caused a lean mixture reading in both...

      Wonder if the Audi W12 transmission is the same? I'll bet you could get a used one for $1,500 and $1,500 installation.

      The crankcase vent or PVC valve (under the knitted white insulation) in my P developed a split diaphragm which resulted in a too lean mixture on both banks. Perhaps yours makes a noise. It's an easy...

      Mine was finally diagnosed as a broken crankcase vent valve diaphragm. (Not leaky cam seals as posited by the dealer who wanted to do them for $1,200.)

      The valve and labor was about $360.00.

      Take the spare tire out of the trunk and put it where the one is with the new valve. Put that wheel in the spare tire well or stash it in the garage. See if the system will go into learn mode now....

      Great photo. Mine is also covered with a mesh cloth-like heat shield.

      I wonder if one of those hose clamps is not tight, could that cause enough of a vacuum leak to "lean" both banks?

      Simple, put the Audi cap gasket on top of the Phaeton gasket. Then you will have a double thick gasket. That should do it.

      I'm thinking mine was disconnected during the operation on the engine and the tech forgot to reconnect it.


      Would an error code for a defective or open circuit to the horn show up in a scan?
