    Had my 2.0tfsi a4 for about a month now, and ive noticed that my temp guage seems to vary alot. Sometimes it will sit at 90, but i can look down at it a couple minutes later and it will be back down to just under 70. Is this normal?

    Should sit at 90. Perhaps faulty sensor?

    Thermostat mate, recently done mine. Bout £30 for the part, bit of a ball ache to fit as you need to remove the alternator, but other than that, straight forward job :)

    Definitly thermostat you may notice your fuel consumption will be more as well during this time.

    06D121111G - Audi Thermostat for your vehicle. £31 retail , £22 trade

    Try and use the Audi part as they revised it a few times due to cracking etc.

    And you don't have to take off the alternator Craig :p

    Can just move it to one side. Dont make more work for yourself bad enough you doing a engine rebuild.

    Thanks Giosabcsl, very helpful! And yes, it does tend to like its fuel!
