SOURCE: coolant leaking on a4 2002 1.8t

If the coolant is droping on top of the trans, then it is the coolant flange located at the back of the engine then it is the coolant flange,like the person above mentioned. I had happen to my A4. The part is like $20 i believe if you get it yourself, plus new coolant, VW kind. Get the flange and a new o-ring do not try to re-use. There is a DIY for it if you google it : http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php?t=84054. I chose to take it to a shop it was 2-3 hours labor. Just make sure they know what they are doing. The spot is a pain in the ***, and if you have big hands don't even think about it. Well worth the pay to a shop!

SOURCE: My Audi 80 can't start after changing the timing

The valve timing must be out. You will need to verify that the timing marks on your camshaft sprocket(s) are set at the correct position when you rotate the engine to the compression stroke on TDC.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Audi

On these vehicles, the timing belt is recommended at 90K!! I recommend replacing the T-belt and water pump at the same time. The water pump is timing belt driven, and if it fails, you would be paying for another Timing belt service!! YOU WILL NOT experience drive-ability issues because the belt is aged or has not been serviced at its recommended intervals. Instead, if the belt fails, your engine will fail, and will require replacement or rebuilt ($3500+ job). Find a less expensive reliable shop thats experienced in EURO vehicles, and stay away from the dealer!!

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.

Ok, now what are the leading causes of an overheating audi 80? this ones just hada new radiator installed and has been overheating eversince, im assuming an air lock?? do they have a coolant bleeding...


From memory the Audi 80 has a small radiator nestled in behind the front left headlight. This position is fine in colder European areas, but in a warmer climate it tends to cause some grief.

Check the radiator and the cooling fan. open the hood as the engine temperature rises does the fan come on. if not that the problem, Also do this As the car is warming up(from a cold start) near operating temperature, turn off the car, watch out for the fan, engine of key in your pocket fell the radiator is there any hot or cold spot? if there is the radiator is plugged. Also if the radiator isnt plugged new doesnt mean it works, the water pump itself can be faulty. and dont forget the most important device the Thermostat you did timing belt waterpump they should of done thermostat.

Overheating after rediator replacement. Thermostat was replaced, fans working fine.


If you have more than 60k on the vehicle and
have never done a timing belt or water pump this is the time to do it.

Thermostat jammed, car overheating


Probably right between the two banks of cylinders, at the front of the V behind the top of the timing case. Not worked on this engine in particular but thats where they usually are on V6's.

Heater does not produce hot air even on high only warm air


My 2002 Audi A4 doesn't produce the hot air, It's an Auto computer control temperature system. I took my car to the local mechanic (gas station), he said that the water pump and the timing belt need to be replaced.

The heating system normally produces by the engine, then normally the "thermostat' is causing the issue, but the temperature gauge doesn't indicate the overheat.

Any idea what's cause this problem?

The most likely senario is that the water pump went bad which caused the overheating in the first place. Then after the engine shut down, the water pump seized up. When the engine was restarted, the timing belt started to smoke because the water pump, which runs off the timing belt, was not turning. Since the engine overheated to the point of shutting down, blown head gaskets are a possibility. Put a new timing belt and water pump on it and start it up. If it runs OK, you're good to go.
