    Quick reply needed guys :)

    my temp sensor decided to come loose and dump all the coolant out

    so im off to audi to get some, how many litres does the system take?

    ive just been sat at the roadside when i noticed the temp gauge over 100

    also why am i finding it difficult to plug the sensor back in? :S

    Two bottles of coolant should be cool, the rest water.

    4.5L total system IIRC

    use g15 coolant only !!

    unless you are flusing out all the 'old' g15 (red stuff) as it wont mix with other off the shelf coolants. no need to dilute as it's a pre-mix.

    you mean G12? ive just been to the stealers and got some of the G12 plus, however after filling the resevoir it isnt going down, theres is no coolant in the system because ive just checked where the temp sensor is and its empty, how do i get it to flush the coolant through the system so i can keep adding more untill its all nice and full?

    The G12 stuff, is a coolant in the summer, anti freeze in the winter and is a corrosion (rust) inhibitor the rest of the time.
