This is the Check Engine warning light (the light is required by law to be amber/yellow, it means that a problem or problems have been detected in the electronic engine control or the emission control system. this control system is called the OBD2 Electronic engine/emission control system. This system has over 200 possible faults that turn this warning light on, what needs to be done is to have the system scanned to see what fault codes are in the memory of the computer (called the PCM), it can be as easy as a defective or loose gas cap on up to Oxygen sensors failing, it is a long list, so the system scan is the very 1st thing that must be done to start the diagnosis.

Engine runs, oil dip stick shows thin yellow liquid, can't fill water resovior What is wrong

Perhaps nothing. If the engine runs perfectly, and the oil dipstick is on the full mark, perhaps you have clean "yellow colored" oil in there. Have a mechanic smell the oil and see if it is oil.
Clean oil can be a light yellow color.
Water reservoir is a whole other system.

Stalls, then engine shuts down...

One thing it could be is the fuel filter. It's about the only thing that won't cause an engine light to come on.

My check engine light came on my dash. Audi 2004 2.7 TT

the problem can be caused by vacuum leaks .. in some engines the vacuum hoses pass above the engine where they can get very hot .. they crack, split or just leak .. this causes several bad things to happen including the secondary air injection problem (vacuum operated valves) ... on at least some cars like the passatt there is a vacuum hose kit available that replaces all the critical hoses .. maybe audi has the same type repair kit ..

bad fuel pump, bad relay, bad crank sensor, bad ignition module. Being a 13 year old car it could be anything. To start with you need to check for codes the same day this happens.

Yellow engine check light stays on

take the car to dealership and get them to cancel the fault memory of the engine control unit. Then if the warning light comes back on you will need a full diagnosis check to establish what is causing thefault.
