    Just a quick concern today...

    As the morning's have become colder (especially this morning), I have turned on my A3 and the Red coolant level warning symbol has came up.. Each time I have switched the engine off, and the symbol has gone away.

    The car/temp runs fine, but it is just annoying. Is this a sign of bad things to come...also the coolant level looks good, it was serviced 5ooo miles ago, and the coolant was changed along with the waterpump 10,000 miles at Audi!

    Thanks,

    Clach :icon_thumright:

    This is a known problem with the A3/S3 in cold weather. It think the warning sensor is a bit sensitive. I topped mine up with a very small amount of de-ionised water (about 100ml) and it cured the problem.
