It's actually behind the timing belt on the front of the engine, slightly to the passenger side of center. You have to do pretty much a full teardown to reach it. Here's a procedure that can help you get there:

Why is 2001 audio overheating


Most Audi's over heat for one reason. Bad cooling processes and equipment.

what does that mean?

Audi Cooling system. Is under pressure... if hoses (heater core) are plugged or the thermostat fails or its a hot day and the cool fans arent running you are likely to experience the dreaded AUDI VW cooling issues.

First things First. Check the coolant and OIL level.

any white sludgey stuff in the oil (popped head gasket)
low oil.. could be over heating your engine.

Freezing cold day when it is over heating.. frozen coolant


Thermostat issues are hard to determine and So cheap to rectify...
ask yourself this? when was it changed last if not in the last 60 K and you are having an issue. REPLACE IT.. Now you can trust it again.


Over heating issues after replacing a thermostat or having a low coolant issues and you have filled it again.. its likely you have the double dreaded AUDI AIR BUBBLE.

I have worked out a few by letting the engine warm up and cool down repeatedly 6 - 10 times..
By WARM up I dont mean over heat and destroy.

Ever time it heated to normal operating temp the thermostat opened and moved some air around the loop.
when the system cooled i added a little more audi coolant to the tank and repeated the process eventually the bubles come out enough to drive.


be smart take it to teh end of the drive and back and check the temp, oil and coolant.
park it.. let it cool
next drive take it down the drive, to the end of the neighbors drive and back.. re check the temp, oil and coolant.. see the pattern?

DO IT.

lol It works for me.. Be patient. double check yourself before driving. Double check it again.. like you need to start the task from the finish.. you will be surprised the things you find you missed. : )

Cheers and good luck.

Overflowing coolant from resevoir


your radiator may be blocked too also check that there are no bleed screws on the cooling system air in the system can cause this too check that the top and bottom hoses are getting hot if not there is no flow in the cooling system

My 99 Audi A4 resevoir is bubbling, had the water pump and timing replaced a month ago anything????


1. Possible air lock in the cooling system, does the internal fan blow hot air? You can blead the system through small bleeding points on the water hoses.

2. Head gasket gone, do the water pipes to the rad expand under pressure?

3. Faulty thermostat. Thermostat controls the amount of water directed to the rad.

4. Not enough anti freeze.

5. Rad cooling fan not starting when supposed to causing overheating. Does the tempture gauge in the dash read normal.
Let me know how it goes.

My 1999 Audi a6 started overheating so I took the radiator cap of but the engine was still hot so antifreeze went everywhere so I filled it with water. I got in the car and the heat in the car wasnt...


I would suspect the thermostat has stuck closed. Drain the system, heater on hot, flush the system, replace the thermostat, pour in pure water and see if that cures the problem. If it does then drain the system again and pour in a 50/50 mx of antifreeze and distilled water. You also need to make sure the cooling fan is working and the water pump is circulating coolant in the system.

Audi a4 is overheating


the very first thing that i would check would be to make sure that there is enough coolant in the system. If there is not then I would fill her up and then check the system for leaks. It would also be a good idea to check the system pressures by using a cooling system pressure tester. Other possibilities is that the thermostat is stuck closed, radiator clogged, radiator fan is not working, or a bad water pump.

1997 audi A4 heater blowing cold air


You probably have a leak in your oil cooler. This is causing the oil to bleed into your cooling system causing the "thick brown liquid". This in turn will also cause your engine to over-heat since the cooling system is contaminated.

Engine overheating audi 4.2 a8 1999


I would have the cooling fan checked, and have the thermostat changed. An overheated thermostat (overheating caused by something else) will cause problems in the future.
