Mine was replaced at 44k miles on a 13' S8 as well. Paid $1400 out of pocket due to my APR Tune voiding the remaining power train warranty

My ‘13 CPO 4.0t with 57K miles started squealing last week. Had to wait until today to get a loaner from Audi. My cost is $85 for the deductible. Sounds crazy a small part like this should cost so much...

Default My S8

I have the same issue. The dealer is saying it will be $4,000 to fix the PCV valve and they also say something about the oil separator. Does that sound right, it is a 2014 Audi S8 with under 50K miles. Should the warranty cover this stuff?

Warranty covers it but you’re over the mileage. Warranty stops at 50k
the PVC and oil separator are terms used interchangeably sometimes.

It doesn’t cost more than $1500 at the dealer I paid$1450. If they want $4k than they are most likely trying to pull a fast one one you

Another PCV valve whistling noise victim and I *just* rolled over 50k miles.

I put the TSB PDF on google drive for easy finding: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1a_...irNMNMkccjHDbA

Dealer quoted me $1400. I can get the part for under $300 and will probably do it myself.

Let us know how that goes. My dealership replaced mine a few months ago, the service manager said they had to take so much off to get to it, there was a lot of labor. I think he said the turbos had to come off, could that be right? It was covered luckily, I had the tune taken out a couple days before. They didn't see it.

yes, there is about $1k of labor. the PVC valve is located under the turbos. turbo removal is necessary

I think there needs to be a recall honestly. This is ridiculous for an emissions part to fail this early on so many vehicles. It's not even about the money but I will be saving my receipts in case Audi decides to own up to this.

Small tidbit to add. The part number in the TSB lists the PCV as 079103542D

The part I got at the dealer was 079103542E

Not uncommon for part numbers to change but I wonder if they did revise the design in some way.
