SOURCE: Audi A4 1998 DIY service steps/manual

Go to www.audidiy.com or www.audiworld.com (look in their Tech area), and there are full procedures on how to do it (it's the timing belt service). It's not a difficult job really, but you may need to get some specialty tools such as Torx bits to do the job.

Make sure that you get G12 coolant from VW/Audi (the pink kind) and if you have some other color in there now, flush it fully before adding the G12. You can order everything you need, including coolant, from www.ecstuning.com (I've used them many times with full satisfaction). Don't waste your money on the advertised cam locking tool - it's very expensive and wholly unnecessary. Its intent is to keep the cams from spinning, but if you position the #3 cylinder (rear passenger side) to top-dead-center on its compression stroke, the cams would have to be hit with a hammer to turn them.

The job is not difficult really. I've done many timing belts on many cars before, so I know what I'm doing overall, but the first time I did an Audi 2.8L V6, it took me a total of 5.5 hours start to finish. Many other cars (like my 300ZX) take that long just to reach the timing belt. As for how these kinds of jobs go, this is a very easy one.

Buzz me back on here or in email at dizellow@yahoo.com if you have any questions you'd like answered related to this or the rest of your car and I'll do what I can to help you out.

SOURCE: audi a4 1998 wiper realy

do you mean how... or where is it located.... look under the hood for the fuse panel located there. basically you find the correct relay ... pull it out and replace it. there are more relays under the dash and i've heard the audi's also have them in the trunk.

I have an Audi A4 1.9TDi 2004. I was driving a distance of 25km and the car temp gauge went up twice on the journey and I got message on the dash COOLANT with a pic of a thermometer. I then drove 80km...


Make sure you uhave a good mixture of antifreeze it make the boiling point higher as well as the freeze point lower. Check the fans let it idle turn on the ac and wait and watch.If it gets hot and No fan comes on start there / thermastat The t-start should be open around 160-180 degrees you should notice it get to the threshhold then drop 10 degrees / heads check for water in the oil oil in the water .See if you can get a temp gun if every thing else checks good before you get into the wiring.
