Audi A6 1997, switch off when its hot?


Hi, are you asking why your Audi switches off when it's hot? When it's hot outside, or when the engine is hot? If the latter, your car is likely starting to overheat and the self protect mode kicks in. Have your cooling system checked and your OBD scanned as a start.

I have a 2004 Audi A6 s-line w/101k it recently started climbing from the normal temp to one notch past on the coolant gauge. It doesnt peak out yet and hasnt gone past the first notch after normal an


Sound like either the Thermometer Housing, Thermometer or water pump may be in trouble.

If no leaks you can rule out the Thermometer Housing.
But regardless you will need to replace all three if any one is bad.
And the timing Belt while you are in there,
Only because it a 5 hour Minimum Labor job to replace either of them.
And there all right near one another,

A real pain to get to those. Thank you Audi...

Why is my 2001 audi a6 is overheating 140,000 miles


Hi there:the Audi manual never talks about a 2 stage aux fan just that the aux fan runs with ac on and it can run with out ac on if there is an overheat issue on the coolant side where as the a4 info clearly states a 2 stage aux fan system that would lead me to think the early 4.2 did not use a 2 stage system. Your car is not overheating and boiling over out of the coolant tank it is showing a little hotter than what would be perfect but it is still in what Audi calls acceptable range. The whole coolant system is new I would start looking at your sensor and gage systems there is a coolant sensor in the rad but that is most likely new if they replaced the rad. The gage uses a temp sensor on the engine for the gage I would replace that sensor and test the gage with a resistance input tool we have at the dealer. Could be a gouge or the wiring to it. There is a coolant fan module that could be defective if your sure there was a two speeds to the aux fan.

Coolent system fault symbol Audi A6


1998 Audi A6 2.8

It could be that the thermostat is stuck in the open position thus providing maximum coolant flow through the engine when the engine is still cold, ie from a cold start. (The thermo should close when the engine is stopped and cold and it opens up once the coolant temp increases and the engine has been running for a few minutes.) Once the engine is hot maximum coolant flow between engine and radiator is normal.

Do you also find that your heater takes a while to provide warm air to the cabin in winter when you notice this condition?

If you do not know when the thermostat was last changed then I would suggest you change it. ( If it malfunctions and sticks in the closed position you will really have a problem). The radiator/engine coolant could no doubt do with a flush and change in any event as it should be done every 2 years. If you don't know when it was last done - do it. Cooling systems tend to be a neglected part of essential vehicle maintenance.

Audi A3 2002 model auto - temperature gauge not working


The guage and fan speeds work on independant sensors. If you can remove the plastic engine cover and locate the "sending unit" for the gauge disconnect it and restart the engine. The gauge should remain cold and not move. If this is the case replace the sending unit. This should be a single wire sender located in the waterjacket of the intake manifold look in the area where the upper rad hose enters the intake.
