The thermostat is mounted to the engineblock on the front of the engine, under a “cover” just to theright of the crank. The thermostat cover is connected to the lowerradiator hose. The manual says to remove the timing belt. I am notsure if this is required but if true, it is a major job.

I have an Audi A4 1991 2.6 V6 model, with a overheating problem since they fitted a new radiator, it goes up to 90 deg but then after about 10 km it goes over to 100 to 110 deg. Could this be a faulty...


it could be. im surprised it wasnt replaced at the same time. make sure the air is bled from the system after installation. you have to remove the drive belt to access the thermostat. when replacing make sure the small check valve on the thermostat is facing up. heres a couple pictures to aid you. hope this helpsonetufshoppe_84.gifonetufshoppe_83.gif

Locate thermostat 1993 90cs v6


Follow the upper and lower radiator hoses to the engine block (upper first). At the end of one of these hoses, there will be a "bubble" housing attached to block -- thermostat is under that.

Where is the thermostat on a v6 audi engine?


It is behind the timing belt area on the right front corner of the motor..You will need to remove the timing belt to get it out (well sometimes you can flex it enough to get the t-stat out) and so you may as well replace the belt while you are in there..

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.

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.
