What problems do Audi Q7 have?
What Audi’s main issues usually come from some electric component of the car.

How does a TDI engine work?
As the title “Turbocharged Direct Injection” suggests, the magic behind the TDI engine is in the combination of turbocharging and cylinder-direct fuel injection. Here diesel is injected directly into the cylinders through a nozzle at an extremely high pressure, which breaks it down to a very fine mist.
