Noticed what seemed to be oil near the dip stick. I had purchased a nice aftermarket dip stick from ECS Tuning so I could easily check the oil. This oil near the dip stick made me think the engine was building internal pressure. After some internet research I realized the oil separator was failing. This is sort of what us old time mechanics call the PCV valve. On a regular car it would be $10. On the Audi Q5 the separator was $250. Ouch.

It started out with rough idling when stopped at traffic lights without any warning signs/messages. I had to rev it up to keep the engine from stalling. Took it to the dealer, they said that the cam shaft was loose. They replaced the cam shaft, timing chain tensioner, cam bridge. Still having same problem, but now some check engine code showed up. They looked at it again and found out that one of the cylinder had very low compression. They opened it up and saw piston/cylinder #1 was damaged, and suggested engine replacement. Repairs covered under extended warranty. I suspected that the tensioner cause the problem in the first place, but since it's a known problem with 2.0T engine with previous model years, but they don't want to admit it.
