Audi a6 heaters not given out hot air

Heaters just lukewarm not hot enough to heat the car how do i fix them and how much Audi A6 2001 with same heater problem. for a week no problem then it's intermittent then fine etc. Scares me what so called mechanic experts tell me. Last one suggested timing belt replacement.Even main Audi dealer said it was overdue and should be changed at 75k. Not true. It even says in manual not till 120k!!!!!Car is great but niggly issues like this let down what I thought was a bullet proof car when i bought it. Stick to Toyota next time. They go on forever

This is more than likely a problem with your thermostat in the cooling system .heres a few things to check to be sure make certain your blower fan is on high and temp setting is in the hottest setting check to see if   air is coming from your heater ducts  also be sure to thoroughly let the engine warm up 10 to 20 minutes  before checking. if the air is blowing but  luke warm still your thermostat is stuck in the open position  and will cause the engine to run to cold and performance will also suffer as will your heat will not be sufficient  to heat the passenger compartment  this repair should cost no more than $150 max to replace buy a repair shop    this is a  common problem in older cars and this is generally   a quick  repair to be made  for almost any repair facility  should take under 45 minutes to complete once repair is started

Audi a6 heaters not given out hot air


the heater cores in these cars get clogged up very commonly. pull the heater hoses off of the heater core in the engine compartment, and use a regular garden hose to backflush the heatercore. spray in one way, then the other, untill clear water is coming out. then refill your coolant reservoir and see if that helps.
