Question about 2007 Audi A4 2.0T

1 Answer

Coolant light came on flashing red - drove about 2 miles - temp did not move - turned it off for a few minutes then started it again - drove about 1/2 mile and temp shot up - pulled over and turned it off just before it hit the red temp line and started smoking - temp went down almost immediately - when tow truck arrived and moved the car - there was some anti freeze on the ground - got home and found enormous puddle of anti freeze on the garage floor. Dealer says it was a hose and it's ok (just picked it up 2 days ago from them installing a new engine!!) - not sure I believe them - they said there was some anti freeze left in it. Do you think this incident will have damaged the engine??

SOURCE: A4, 3.0 with CVT

When you say "no throttle response," do you mean that the engine reacted to the throttle but the car wouldn't move?  If so, this is a fairly common issue with CVT cars....CVT is not quite ready for the road yet.

SOURCE: broken timing chain corsa

Not good. I would expect the garage to foot this expence as Im sure your initial bill was far from a cheep one? If a customer of mine had suffered a similar issue, I would certainly work very closely with them to rectify the problem. There is of course a slim chance a catastrophic component failure has genuinely occured, which may be completely unrelated. However it is most unlikely this time, as when your timing chain failed the valve to piston collision/impact would have caused serious potential damage to the crankshaft and big end bearings. This symptom is not overly common in most engines where timing chain/belt failure occurs. However, all engines are different and may experience different levels of damage. A replacement engine does now seem the cheepest way forward in your situation. Perhaps the garage should source one and you might pay for the fitting only? Good luck

I would suggest you check oil levels etc. Generally these cars suffer from the air mass meter / air sensor problems aswell as coil problems too. Did you ever get a solution to the problem?

What do you think is wrong


intermittents are sometimes hard to diagnose out !! and this seems as one , im curious though what made them wiggle the relays and fuses ?? was there a previous problem there ?? depending on year of manufacture of car , is weather or not the cars own pcu can help diagnose what made car stop , as later models "remember " what there last condition was that shut off engine , of course this requires diagnostic equipment to see this info that typically car owners don't own , but a qualified service tech does and knows how to use it to find your problem

I think you have a leaking headgasket or a coolant leak. Have the cooling system pressure tested first, if no external leaks show up then you have a possible leaking headgasket.

Well...my ball park guess on this is just a tune up. The engine light is usually showing a misfire. If the plugs are bad then the cylinder is not igniting the fuel and it is flooding out. With what is here this makes sense to me. Let me know what it does turn out to be.

first of all, was the water on the passenger side from the air conditioner or a leak (what color was the fluid?)-the cap has to be tight, otherwise it will not hold pressure, so that has to be checked before you set off again-push down as you turn the cap clockwise, and it will not hurt to have water in the system (it actually transfers heat better than antifreeze) but it has a much lower boiling point, so the cap has to be tight. Pay attention to the temperature gauge and do NOT overheat it-it is an aluminum engine and they do not tolerate excessive heat. Take your time, no AC (although the AC being on can keep a good cooling system more stable since the radiator fan is forced on when the AC is running, so you can, within reason, experiment)-no matter what, just don't let it run hot-not worth it.

if light on dash is on, then it sounds like a bad crank sensor. shuts off while driving down road, then will not start for about 15 minutes. heres more causes:: car shuts off when tempurature gets to normal-- low coolant, failing coolant tempurature sensor, air in water pump, failed radiator fan, it takes 10 to 15 minutes for a car to warm up. check or replace coolant temp. sensor if above is ok. have a good day !
