Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
So what has these mechanics checked or replaced so far upto this point if anything?
Do you loose any coolant or seen any leaking out?
Do you still get heat in the car from the heater?
Any discolouration with the oil is the oil level ok?
Do you hear the fans kick in when it overheats?
For it to overheat quite quickly then it could well be the water pump thats failed,if the impellar is broken then its not circulating coolant so it will obviously overheat quite quickly..they need to see if there is flow in the system.so maybe get them to check that..sadly its run by the timing belt..so you need to bear in mind when the water pump is replaced that the timing belt is done too with all the tensioners/guides.....id say too as precaution have them do a combustion leak test on the coolant system to ensure the headgasket isnt leaking so something else..as continually overheating can run the risk of blowing the headgasket..have they checked that the radiator isnt blocked hoses arent hot at the top and cold at the bottom hose...besids if you dont hear the fans kick in when the temp guage reaches beyond half way then they may need to look into that..check the fans arent siezed aswell as ensure the temp sensor on the thermostat housing isnt faulty..
Its alot to change and wouldnt be cheap to be honest.it may likely solve your problem which ever has gone faulty..that why its best to check each area of the coolant system first..to see where the problem is at rather then replace everything.but of course thats entirely your decision whether you go down that route..i can only advise based on what you've told me..but likewise i kinda suspect maybe the water pump has given up..thats why checking to see if the system has flow or even do pressure test too...and take it from there...
Whats your registration number?
Ok...You could actually likely get these locally from motor factors if you know any in your area..maybe like eurocarparts etc..but i can give you a link below to ebay..that maybe help..give you an idea what you need here..but obviously you will need coolant too..and maybe as an advisory get the thermostat done at the same time...your garage who is doing the job should order this anyway with the new timing belt and water pump kit..
