Hi Community,

I have an 04 Audi A4 3.0 Quattro which suddenly cut out on me when I was driving. Before it shut off, I noticed it would drive a little sluggish when I would cruise at 40MPH. Then on the highway, when I would feather the gas pedal, it suddenly shut off so I had to restart it so I don't get in an accident. I've experienced this same symptom and car shutting off on me while driving with MK4 Jetta's (when the fuel pump began failing) so I knew exactly how to restart the car without panicking . After starting it back up, the CEL and EPC light were on. So I scanned it with VCDS which produced the below output. Disregard the Clutch Pedal Switch error as I have replaced it and never cleared the DTC. After some brief research, I found that the camshaft control solenoids are known to fail on these cars. Before I go replacing them, how can I confirm it is them and not my fuel pump? Would a failing fuel pump throw the same 17468 and 17465 codes? Also, if its the two camshaft control solenoids, should I replace the other two as they would potentially be on their way out as well?

Thanks in advance!
