Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello , Here to answer automotive questions and make you feel comfortable and become familiar with your product
Please explain how you bled the system? There is air trapped, did you open the bleeder in the top hose long enough to allow a solid stream of coolant to come through.
in doing so have the heat on hot and fan running on low to ensure the coolant circulates through the heater core?
what info do you need
yes many times
when do so make sure to let the car sit over night then top off the coolant with a cold engine. Try that. Sometimes these Audi and VW are tough to bleed let me know
I have done that I have been working on this for over a week. I have let it sit over night with the coolant reservoir elevated several times. I have squeezed all of the hoses.
When the top hose gets hot the bottom hose is stone cold. It seems like the top of the engine will boil the coolant tha tis in it but the bottom hose is still cold.
when I had the tstat out I felt the water pump and looked at it with a mirror and it is has a metal impeller and does not spin
