    The thermostat is located in the engine block just to the side of the water pump underneath the housing where the upper radiator hose is attached.



    1. Remove the lower engine shield.

    2. Place a large drain pan under the vehicle to collect the coolant.

    3. Remove the radiator cap and drain the cooling system into a suitable container.

    4. Place a large drain pan under the engine block drain located at the bottom of the engine near the vicinity of the flywheel and the oil pan.

    5. Drain the engine block coolant into a suitable container.

    6. Place the (hood) lock carrier in the "service position". For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Body And Trim, Service Position, Front Bumper, Hood Lock Carrier.

A6 turbocharged. Whyu does it smoke when it covers a 120km per hour?


I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.

Need to know how to replace the starter on the 1997 audi a8 quattro


Well Mich, first you need to elevate the car to get to the starter; remove the undercover to expose the motor. Then you need to remove some parts to get to the starter. After that, it's pretty straight forward. Good luck.
