    Engine temp.

    Hi guys and gals, I've got a bit of a dilemma here. I've got a 2.0tdi 143. My car isn't warming to 90. It's getting to the mark half way then going up a bit when I'm going up hills, then down when going down hills. I thought thermostat so took it in to Audi a few weeks ago for warranty repair who diagnosed the stat was shagged and replaced it last Friday (warranty runs out on 17december :O). Today it's doing the same thing!



    Please help :'(

    Did Audi actually diagnose "a shagged stat" lol

    I had a similar problem and solved it by fitting a new temperature sensor, easy 5min job and only £7 delivered

    Good luck.

    If Audi diagnosed it and replaced it and its still doing it I would suggest to take it back to them.

    As a side note, have you thought about extending the warranty with Audi?

    Engine temp.

    Just had it in today and basically "its normal for this engine temperature to fluctuate when outside temperature drops below 5deg C. This is due to the engine being so efficient. This can change due to driving style, cabin heater settings and load"

    Does your cars do the same, or am I being paranoid?
