    are these easy to replace yourself?I have a audi a4 1.8 and the engine light is on. The mechanic tells me it needs a new coolant sensor.

    I have the exact same problem on my 2003 Audi A4. I failed my emmisions test because of this problem, so I ordered the part from Shucks. I now have the part, but I don't know how to change it or even how difficult it is? Any ideas anyone, I would rather not pay $50-$100 to have someone else do it if possible.

You're talking about the coolant temperature right? If so, it's likely to be a coolant temp sensor. They're known to go bad on the A4, and they're only around $20-25 from If you replace it and the problem isn't fixed, no harm done - sooner or later that sensor WILL go bad. The result is that most likely your thermostat got stuck open and will need to be replaced.

Why does my audi tt temp. gauge go hotter than engine temp. fans work changed thermosat , temp sensor ,and water is ok ?

i suppose i have to ask how it is that you know these temperatures are different?
is the car actually overheating?
Have you had it scanned for any fault codes?
You may have a defective temp guage...check it by removing the sender plug and see if the guage falls totally to the guage wire and see if the guage goes to max.

My temp gauge isnt working and now my radiator cap came off in pieces. HELP!!!

You must have noticed that the engine was overheating. So check on the temperature sensor-thermister fitted on the engine jacket. If this is faulty replace or else the guage must be deffective.
Check for availability before you think of replacing.

The gas guage on my 2003 toyota sequoia stopped working

I would check the fuse first, and if that isnt bad, there is a float in the gas tank that sends a message to the gauge to how much gas is in the tank

My mechanic in our town did a quick computer check. Car computer indicated a low level of antifreeze, he topped it up, cleared all messages off the car computer and said to watch the the heat guage for any further irregularities. I'll keep an eye on it, love the car, great mileage fun to drive.

No link, the fuel guage issue is the sending unit in the gas tank is defective, the temp guage may be correct, have you serviced the cooling system lately or ever? What year is the car?
