Audi A5 3.0L diesel quattro experienced total loss of power. Luckily had just come to a halt. Engine will not restart. Turns out the failure of main the main diesel pump destroyed entire fuel line system! Audi quoted 13,000K replacement cost to change all 3 pumps, all 6 injectors and clean fuel tank! I am shocked. Audi dealer said quite a few cases have occurred with the exact same problem! very disappointed that nothing has been done about this known issue.
