What oil should i use in summer (buffalo,ny) for a 1997 A4 with a V6 engine

5W30 is perfectly fine all year (I'm in Binghamton and run that in my 99 A4). On the V6 as well, you don't need to run synthetic oil. The turbo engines require it, but for a V6 you're fine on conventional oil.

1999 A8 Audi

Every 60,000 miles. Change the timing belt, accessory serpentine belt, hydraulic timing tensioner, tensioner and idler rollers, tensioner relay arm, water pump, thermostat, and coolant. A dealer will charge you $1100 or more, and an independent European specialist probably $650-750. If you're in range of the southern tier of NY, I can do it for you (I specialize in Audi and VW). Order your parts online and I'll do the work for $250 in labor.

No heat, air blender might need to be replaced.

If your climate panel works fine, but the air just isn't warm, it's probably the thermostat. I'm not as sure on the 1.8T engine, but I can guarantee you that a stuck thermostat is very common on the 2.8L V6 engine. I changed mine three weeks ago, and have done seven or eight of them in the past. It's very labor-intensive (the front of the car has to come off), so you may as well do the timing belt as well. I'd bet a shop will get you for 5-6 hours' labor. If you're in or near upstate NY, I can do it. If not, find an independent shop that specializes in European cars. Use a dealer as last resort only, as they'll get you for $100-120 per hour.

Where is the theromstat located on the 99 Audi A4 2.8 30 v engine

Here's a picture of my A4 2.8L when I changed my thermostat a few weeks ago (you have to remove the front of the car - pretty time-consuming job):

It goes in the hole behind the toothed timing belt in the center of the picture. Expect a shop to get 5-6 hours labor. If you're in range of upstate NY, let me know - I can do that job for you (and the timing service as well, since there's a lot of labor and you're already in there). Post here as a followup reply if you need more information on doing the job yourself or if you want to talk about having it done.

Where is the thermostat located on 1998 audi a6 2.8L engine

The thermostat is located on the pass side of the engine.  There are timing belt covers that need to be removed.  In order to remove the thermostat normally the front bumper has to come off and the car has to be put into what audi calls service mode. This allows room to get to the timing belt components.

1997 audi A4 heater blowing cold air

Sounds like one of two things has happened - either the heater core has gone south or your thermostat is stuck wide open. The t-stat is more likely as the A4 is known for issues such as this. My 99 A4 currently has the t-stat stuck partially open, so my heat production isn't quite what it should be. I did a timing belt on a 30v Passat a few weeks ago (same engine that I have) and it had the same condition as my car. Once the new thermostat was in, you could set the temperature to 75 degrees with the heat on the floor vents, and cook hamburgers on the floor mats.

Change your thermostat and you should be good to go. I don't know if you have the 1.8T or the 2.8 V6, but if you have the 1.8T, go to or and look in their tech procedures - there's a photo-referenced step by step on how to do it on the 1.8T. For the 2.8 V6, you have to open the car's front end as if you were doing a timing belt - the thermostat is behind the belt. You don't have to remove the timing belt to remove the thermostat, but if you're going that far in, and you haven't just recently done the timing belt service, you might as well spend the money and do it now rather than pay all that labor again later.

If you're in northern PA or southern NY and want to take a drive, I can do the work for you in an afternoon - otherwise, find a local shop that specializes in european cars and have them do it - it'll be a few hundred dollars less than if a dealer does it, and they'll do the job very well. Don't just go to any old shop - guys that wrench on Chevys all the time aren't the ones you want working on an Audi. They're good mechanics but there are things about the Audi that they likely aren't going to know to do.

If you do the work yourself and you want some pointers on it (it really is an easy job), reply here with an email address and I'll email you and talk you through it. You will need to pick up 3 liters of G12 coolant though (the pink stuff) from a dealership, or order it from (midwest), (west coast), or (east coast). AutoZone doesn't sell it so you'll have to source it yourself. Those companies also sell the thermostat as well as kits with the timing belt service parts, so you can order that stuff from them as well. And if you do that, don't spend the extra $170 for the cam locking tools - they're 100% unnecessary.

1998 Audi Avant A-4 wagon speed control problem

Yes it is a known failure of the combination switch (the switch assembly on the left side of the column, comprising the turn signal/cruise control stalk and the headlight stalk). They're a problematic part of the B5 chassis (model year 96-01) A4 cars. The fix is to replace the switch assembly, which involves removing the airbag and steering wheel. It's not a difficult job but I recommend having it done by an experienced technician if you haven't worked with airbags before. For the part, you can find them on eBay or at Audi salvage yards like (who will ship it to you), or you can spend about $150 or so for a brand-new one from, Honestly, I'd just buy a new one - if you get a used one, it may last years, or it may last days, and there's no way to know beforehand.

If you're in the northern PA, southern NY area, I can do the work for you with no trouble. Otherwise, find an independent Euro specialty shop in your area - they'll have the experience with the Audi but won't charge as much as a dealership.
