    Should be bang on 90 on the dash with the code 49 trick showing between 90 and 100.
    Temp sender problem?

    20 for the part from Audi and an easy DIY fit. The temp sender not only provides the info to the dash and CC, it also provides the same data to the ECU so it can control the fuel/air mix. If it's telling the ECU it's not up to temp when it is, then you'll be running slightly rich which can cause stalling, rough idle etc.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    My symptoms were mainly the ECU light came on, although it was a "tiny" bit rougher on idle etc it wasn't that noticeable if i'm totally honest with you.

    The VagCom identified it straight away and i had it replaced. The car wants for nothing so got it done same day.

    The temp needle was below 90 before it was done now with a new replacement sensor it is bang on 90 when warm and doesn't move!

    Cheers

    Hope that helps?

    mines the same, its normally on 85 but can go as low as 80, not really had an idle problem but when i drive normally and ease the excelerator it wants to shoot off and put me in the back seats, would this be anythin to do with the temp sender

    Mine actually did this but thought it was a problem with my VVTI, which i'd had done. Come to think of it this problem is not there anymore so might very well be something to do with the sender.

    It's a 40 part, don't buy cheap by OE. Worth a try at that price i'd say.

    Variable Valve Timing unit. Mine was faulty and was replaced, along with camshaft rotor sensor, chains, chain tensioning system, cambelt, pulleys oil, filters etc etc.

    Solved major noise issues when i started the engine, sounded like a super loud sowing machine.

    another common problem nobody seems to have mentioned is the thermostat. I thought it was the temp sender causing my cold running, but it turns out my stat has stuck open, so as the days get colder the car takes MUCH longer to warm up, which really isn't great! I'd suggest a new thermostat.
