    Hello fellas, two very quick ones....

    1. What colour should the coolant temp sensor be for my 1998 2.8 30v with an ACK engine?

    2. On the same engine, where is the ignition amplfier/ignition control module located if indeed these engines have them?

    Cheers guys

    It could be black, blue or green depending on how old it is. FWIW the old FWD still had its original black one and it worked perfectly fine.

    What does the ignition system look like? does it have 1.8T style coil on plug, or is there a big coil with leads coming off it? I have a funny feeling only S4's got the full 1.8T style coil on plug setup with the ignition amplifiers on top of the airbox, the other V6's got an older setup with three coils and normal spark leads, and if thats the case the amplifier is integrated into the coil pack.

    Thanks Aragorn, the reason I ask is I had some engine stutter (fixed now it was a dead HT), and I don't trust the parts boy at my local Audi because he is 16 and has f-all experience. They put him in there for work experience, and he actually serves customers!!!!! Outrageous!!.....He sold me the wrong CTS a while back. I have a new one bit wanted to cross check/confirm it is the right one one with you guys.
