Where's the thermostat on a 96 audi a6

  • On this vehicle the thermostat is behind the timing cover and you have to remove a cam gear to get to it. It is one heck of a job. Says to allow 2 1/2 hours in a mechanic shop. I suggest this one be done by someone that is mechanic savvy. This is not a job for an amateur.
  • I have uploaded a picture so you can visualize it's location as well.
  • Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Drain the coolant into a container. Locate the upper radiator hose to where it ends, and remove holding bolts. The thermostat is usually located in that end, or inside the upper radiator hose.

The thermostat in 2000 audi A6 is bad. How to fix ?

The thermostat is located in a housing, mounted on your engine with the top radiator hose attached. It is relatively easy to replace.
Be sure to put the new thermostat in the correct direction (notice direction of old one before taking it out). Also, be sure to clean the old gasket from the housing and be careful not to break the housing... many are cast aluminum and overtightening a bolt can easily create a headache. :o)
Hope this helps... Good luck!

How to change front struts on 2003 Audi a6

You would be better off to pay $16.00 for a haynes repair manual for that car, it gives a step by step procedure, It would take a lot to tell you on here. If you are going to change the strut springs to the new ones, you need a spring compressor, and if you don't know what your doing and be very careful, and the spring slips and hits you, you will be severelly injured.

Thermostat location on a 98 audl a6 2.8 liter motor

This is the 30v engine (the valve cover dress-up panels should say "5V" on them, for five valves per cylinder). On this engine, the thermostat is buried in the front of the engine, and requires serious disassembly to reach. The front of the car must be swung open into what is called the "service position" to allow easy access to the front of the engine, and then the fan, accessory belt and tensioner, and timing covers have to be removed. Access to the thermostat is partially blocked by the timing belt tensioner, so that will likely have to come off too. If you're going to change it all, you might as well put on new parts and get your timing belt service out of the way. You can buy complete kits for the timing belt service online at a variety of supply shops for about $250. It seems ridiculous to do this much work to change a $14 part, but unfortunately that's the reality of this engine.
