    I did try bleeding the screws 2 of them that are by the firewall but on my way home from work the temperature began rising as I exited the freeway ... Seems that the car only gets hot when it's not moving or at a stop

    I did bleed the air and coolant started to come out so I closed it back up .. My fan is driven by the serpentine belt and seems to be blowing air just fine I'm guessing its my pump ?

SOURCE: My Audi 98 2. 8l car is always overheating

Hi Counchcharles
Your service displays have to be reset with the correct electronic equipment....When you chage the engine oil the computer management system will have to be told...thats the job of the scanner....go to a service centre and have them cancel it for you.
The over heating problem is nothing to do with that though.....Check to see if you have any leakage....open the pressure cap only when the engine is cold....best is first thing before start up in the morning....check to see if you need topping up....if you do, it'll mean you have a leakage....Check the entire radiator and hoses where they go from the rad into the engine and ventilation system for stains from the coolant....If you can't find any look at the thermostat....If you remove it, replace with anew unit, do not dis-guard it also check the pressure cap and if needs be replace....Good luck
Best regards Johngee10

SOURCE: water leaking in my audi a8

There should be a drain hole or tube that leads out of the car. Find it and clean it out. (wet/dry shop vac?)
Don't poke too sharp of things into it, or you might damage something, though.

Remove the thermostat housing (2 bolts) and the old thermostat. Note the orientation of the old thermostat (vent valve facing UP). Clean both thermostat housing and block surfaces and remove all traces of old gasket material. Install the new thermostat vent valve facing UP.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

98 2.8 v6 30v just started overheating, fan comes on, resevoir is full rad feels cold.


Your thermostat is probably bad (not opening). It will need to be replaced. Drain the radiator into a basin. Remove the thermostat housing. Replace the thermostat and gasket. Install the housing. Relace coolant, be sure to use proper coolant as Audi/VW requires.

A8 4.2 v8 engine overheating v reg 1999 no oil loss check system ok temp falls to normal if heater on full maybe engine fan failure ? coolant level ok thanks craig


run it and let it get hot (not to the point of overheating just let it warm up to normal or slightly above normal).  put your hand near the upper radiator hose, if you feel not heat, touch it, be careful as it may be hot.  if it is not hot at all but the engine is warmed up it is the thermostat, the thermostat is located where the upper radiator hose connects to the motor, usually a 2bolt metal fitting, if this is the case just replace the thermostat.

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.
