I have the same trouble with my 96 a6 wagon. it only happens in the cold. once the car warms up no more noise.
I did not get a code from it. what exactly does this pump do?

Apparently the Audi engineiers are putting parts on their cars that serve no purpose.

I'm still running without mine. I was planning on getting it relocated, but I honestly don't care.

Do you know anyone that has done the combination valve/breather filter mod? I'd also like to see some pics.
