    Audi A3 1.8 turbo 2000year Coolant temp sensor location??
    Coolant temp gauge always read zero, but the car heater blowwarm/hot air and the car never overheats.
    I have been to local motor parts factor and they said thereare 2 coolant temp sensors
    1 is a short fat sensor with a square 4 pin connector
    1 is a long sensor with a rounded 4 pin connector
    Where in the engine/engine bay are they located?
    Thanks for your help

    Hi All,
    I have had a good look today and found 1 of the sensors.
    At the end of the cylinder (above the gearbox) I found the long sensor with a rounded 4 pin connector changed it
    Checked coolant level.
    Ran the car and the temp gauge on the instrument cluster now works OK

    Had a good look round the engine but could not see another temp sensor ?
