SOURCE: engine number location for 2002 audi a4

is it a 1.8 turbo or 2.8 V6 or 2.7 biturbo V6 ? on most models what you will be looking for is a 3 letter code like ATQ or APW and is normally on a sticker on the timing belt cover, it is also stamped into the engine on a ledge up high. if no luck there check the owners manual, around the 3rd page there will be a sticker that was put in the book during predelivery inspection this sticker is about 3 inches by 3 inches and filled with id codes for almost everything. If the pdi wasn't done right another copy of the same sticker will be under or next to the spare tire in the spare tire well.

SOURCE: temp guage not working

It's most likely one of two things: 1) coolant temp sensor (meaning the gauge isn't working), or 2) stuck thermostat (meaning the gauge is working but the coolant isn't getting hot)

Start with the coolant temp sensor - it's on the back of the engine, somewhat near the top, toward the passenger side. On your car it's likely a blue sensor body (as is the CTS on my 99 A4 2.8). The easiest way to get to it is to remove the tube leading from the airbox to the throttle body. Take that off, and you can look down and see that there's a squarish plug with four wires plugged into the top of the coolant temp sensor (at the right angle you can see the color of the sensor - black, blue, or light green, but most likely blue on your car). There's a C-shaped retaining clip that holds the connector onto the sensor which must be pulled off (pull more or less straight back toward the firewall), and then the sensor can be unplugged. The sensor itself is just pressed into the opening in the block, not screwed in - you just have to pull upward to get it out (it can be tough - try opening the cap on the coolant tank to alleviate pressure in the system). The sensor is not expensive (around $25 from www.ecstuning.com - call them up with your VIN number to guarantee they send you the right sensor).

If you change that out, and it doesn't fix the problem, don't sweat it - it means your temp sensor was working, but replacing it was a good idea anyhow since they're prone to failure and can cause all kinds of wacky problems when they go. Next most likely problem is a thermostat stuck partially or fully open, and this is more invasive - it requires removing the front bumper, opening up the core support (with radiator and AC condensor), losing (and having to flush and refill) your coolant, and the removal of the serpentine belt and fans. It sounds horrifying but it's pretty easy actually.

I'd suggest starting with the CTS and see if it fixes the problem. If it does not, reply here and let me know and I can help you through the thermostat replacement if you're mechanically inclined and have the tools. If you're in the northeast, I can do either repair for you (I'm in the southern tier of NY) and save you a bundle over a dealership, and save you the aggravation of doing it yourself if you're not mechanical or don't have the tools or experience.

SOURCE: audi A4 key will not come out after turning engine off

I had this as well, but you just have to wait a second. You can't remove it to quickly, the car takes a second to essentially unlatch the key.

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.

Support Bracket power steering AUDI 1998 2.8


Any comparable car should work. Your car is a 98, so you would have to stick with Audi/VW cars that have the 30v V6 (98-01.5). The 97 and earlier years used an older 12v V6 and those aren't compatible. It's unlikely that the 1.8T models would work either. You'd have to look for A4, A6, and Passat cars in the model range I mentioned, and you may find that if you have a quattro model, your replacement would have to come from a quattro (Audi) or 4motion (VW) car as well. Try to find a donor car with your same drivetrain (30v V6, auto/stick - whichever you have, and 2wd/4wd, whichever you have).

To tell at a glance which engine is which, the 30v has black covers on the valve covers that say "5V" (for five valves per cylinder). The older 12v cars I believe actually say "12v" on them.

Where is the thermostat on my 2.8 V6 engine 1999?


If it's the same as the 99 2.8 V6 in the A4, it's quite a ways inside the front of the engine. You have to remove a lot of the front of the engine and you'll find it partially hidden behind the timing belt tensioner. Foolish place to put such a part unfortunately, but at least on my A4 that's where it is.
