Self Study Program 920243 – The Audi 1.8L and 2.0L Third Generation EA888 Engines

VAG SSP 920243. his eSelf-Study Program introduces you to the technology of the third generation of EA888 4 cylinder engines. Upon completing this eSelf-Study Program, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What are the key technical modifications behind the development of the EA888 engine family?
  • How do the innovative, new technologies work?
  • What changes do the 1.8L and 2.0L engines bring to customer service?

The launch of the new 1.8L and 2.0L TFSI engines marks the beginning for the third generation of the successful EA888 four cylinder engine family from Audi. The motives for this development are increasingly stringent exhaust emission standards, better fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions. To achieve these goals, the engines have been completely revised.

This “global engine” is manufactured at Audi’s Hungarian plant in Gyor; in Silao, Mexico; Shanghai and Dallan China. In the future it will also be produced in Changchun. Like the second generation versions of this engine, it is available in both 1.8L and 2.0L displacements. It is used for a variety of vehicle platforms and Group brands and is available in a wide range of power ratings.

For a detailed technical description of the first generation engine, please refer to eSelf-Study Program 921703, The Audi 2.0 Liter Chain-driven TFSI Engine.

To find more about the modifications to the first and second generation engines, please refer to eSelf-Study Program 922903, The 2.0L 4VTFSI Engine with AVS.
