I am new to using a code reader. I had 3 codes show up, 300 saying there were multiple misfires, and one each of 301 and 302 indicating misfire(s?) in cylinders 1 and 2. I cleared them thinking that I would wait for more to appear. If none appeared I would know it was a one time peculiarity.

Should I have left the codes and gone for service?

Or wait for recurrence and act then?

I am thinking there is no date or volume info on the error codes? or is there more detail the dealer can draw out?

I will research on my own as well but would appreciate your comments.

I would have gone with the same approach to see if they re-occur. That way you can see if it is a real problem or just a one off anomaly.

These codes should prolly NOT be cleared (although serializing is often part of a second level) until you go in for service and Audi can compare them with other data logging beneath (2nd level). Otherwise you might be covering up or delaying the find of a real problem, or at least making it harder to detect or fix.

If you caused them with something specific that you did - fiddled with something, got bad gas once, something that you know the cause and effect, I'd be less wary of clearing them. But if not, then I'd be more wary to clear them...

Just my 2¢ -

I was afraid of that! Lesson learned, thanks!
