I have read a few posts but can't find anything that sounds the same as my fault - apologies if this has been asked before but the audi garage don't seem to know what is wrong with my car and neither do I!!!!
my coolant light started coming on intermittently about 6 weeks ago. i booked my car in and explained the problem when they picked it up:
coolant light coming on intermittently for a few seconds then going off
checked coolant level several times, no loss of coolant
temp gauge occasionaly didn't work, would stay where it was when cold then go to the normal position after an hour or so
my car is a 2005 2.0 fsi - i have about 6 days left under warranty as i purchased from approved audi garage....
car was first in about 1 month ago, they kept my car for 2 days.... and replaced the coolant resevoir even tho i knew (and told them) there hadn't been any leaking coolant
got in my car to drive home about 10 mins after they dropped it off, coolant light came on straight away, light kept coming on and beeping 3/4 times and hour (a lot more frequently than before) i checked the coolant level - no sign of leaking.
booked my car in again i drpped it off at the garage this time (and got a very nice 2l turbo sline as the courtesy car - maybe to keep me quiet and forget how **** they are!)
anyway they told me there was a problem with the sensor on the new coolent resevoir! i wasn't convinced by this as the probelm existed before they swapped the coolant resevoir
anyway suprprise surprise my car still has the same intermittant problem with the coolant light coming on and also this weekend drivng along at 60/70 mph my engine management light came on and i lost power, when i came to stop (slowly) in a lay by the car really juddered and shook to a stop. i turned the engine off (looked in my manual) and started the engine after a few mins - no light so set off again.
any advice as to what might be the problem would really be appreciated as the guys at the garage really seem to be fobbing me off - the first time i took my car - i go not paparework (still not received it) and no mention of what was done, so 2nd time i went to the garage to try and have a chat and see if i could get to the bottom of it.
as my car is near the end of it's warranty period do you think they may be trying to fob me off or do you think the genuinely don't know what is wrong with my car?!?!?
