Question about Cars & Trucks
I,ve bought a thermostat and looked at the engine ,the thermostat seems to be at the rear nearside corner of the engine where the big water pipe comes from the block to the radiator. I cant find my owners manual or any info to help me start
It sounds like you have the right location, but getting to it is gonna be the issue. Typically yes the thermostat is located under the top radiator hose that runs from the radiator to the block. Start by draining some/most of the antifreeze that way you don't have a big mess then remove the hose from the block and then the thermostat housing so that you can replace it. Good luck making room to get in there. Hope this helps

You need a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why that light is on. If you have an autozone near you,go there they will hook one up for you. Takes about 30 to 40 seconds. If not call around.

in the middle of the seat cushions in the back of the seat there is a little loop, pull that loop forward and that will have the seat's bottom pulled down to the floor agains the back of the front seats. Next simply apply a lil muscle to the back of the back seats and the seats should fold down nicely into the open space. Be sure to remove the headrests so the seat will fold all the way down. post any issues u may have.

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!

it is the head gasket blown from the cyl to the water jacket ,a radiator specialist can test for combustion gases in the water to confirm this ,but that is what it is . "youdoit"
