If your acceleration decreases significantly while you are driving, a potential cause could be the engine is misfiring. This is because a misfiring engine does not provide the same amount of power to the car as a normal working engine. The parts are working overtime to try and deliver power, however no matter how much you press the gas pedal, the car’s response is slow. This is dangerous driving conditions and requires inspection to ensure you and the car’s safety on the road.
If an engine is misfiring, it could lead to fuel not being used properly within the engine of the Audi. Improper burning of fuel could lead to the need for more often gas station fill ups.

Loud popping noises may occur due to an engine misfiring. This is due to the cylinders not firing properly and may also resemble a sneezing noise. It can be heard inside and outside the vehicle as well. Additionally, the sound of your engine backfiring could also be a warning sign and is a telling sound that you should take your Audi in for inspection.
The pungent odor of gas, coolant, and oil could permeate the air while you are driving. This strong smell is a dangerous sign that there is damage to the cylinders of the engine in your Audi.
