Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
rear coolant drain plug question- how can I be sure system is flushed?
yes back just short of the transmission...appears to be 2 6 mm side by side..removed the one the instructions tell me to remove and no coolant...why is there 2 of these (neither look like a drain plug just a 6mm allen screw
Yep, its not.breaking free yet.afraid ball allen will round it out...fyi I have radiator off and most all coolant removed
ok great, I can skip the plug in the back. thanks much!! attempting to replace cam and crank seals now... any tricks to assure success? have the correct audi tools...
Not certain I understand
nope, just the cam seals and yes I have the seal puller tool
new themostat is in, waterpump is out...surprise how clean the water was...I am thinking the new pump and gasket dont require any sealant?? is that a correct assumption???
Its paper material gasket...doesnt say anything about sealant and looks like old one didnt have any either...what do you think I should do??
any trick to get the seal pulley to dig into seal??
Finished all three seals without issue...all seems to be good with timing as I have cam pulley s back on etc and new timing belt is under tension
had to leave out of town for work this week and wont get back to this until Friday so I hope to hell I dont forget anything! also hoping my timing wont be an issue as I followed instructions to a "t" and after manual 2X crank rotation the cams appear to return to correct alignment so...
The transmission occasionally has a slight shift delay at or around 30mph...any thoughts? Car did sit for a few months prior to use
no leaks, I will check fluid level again as I dont recall for certain and I can hook up my Ross-Tech software and run a scan this weekend when I get back home

she started up and runs smooth, no leaks to be found... was amazed the old coolant had no corrosion at all. need to add coolant after I determine system is empty...
Thanks again Roman, just finishing up some headlight issues with mount tabs and hope to address the transmission this weekend if not before
