    Apologies if there are threads for this - I couldnít seem to find one specifically for the AVG engine. My temp gauge will go to 90 then zoom straight down to 0 again. A VCDS scan found ;

    Address 17: Instruments Labels: 8D0-920-xxx-17.lbl
    Part No: 8D0 920 980
    Component: B5-KOMBIINSTR. VDO D07
    Coding: 00440
    Shop #: WSC 00000
    VCID: 68DFA818086B740639-5122

    Component: AUZ7Z0X1186343

    1 Fault Found:
    01039 - Coolant Temperature Sensor (G2)
    30-10 - Open or Short to Plus - Intermittent
    I am presuming the sensor needs changing. Iíve done this on our Audi 80 1Z engine (fiddly and annoying)

    i was was wondering if anyone had any tips to change on my A4. Looks like access is tricky. I bought Haynes manual and the AVG engine isnít covered! Thanks in advance.

    It is on the back of the head in a plastic housing pointing towards the cars right and tight up against the bulkhead, a bit tight to do.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Ok thanks. There are two places I thought it could be today when I took the engine cover off. If I take photos is there a way of posting them, now photobucket charge?!

    I have a picture, trapped on photofu*w*t who are a bunch of idiots. I PAID them a subscription and then they said they wanted hundreds of dollars a month, now they are begging me to come back for ONLY $199 a year! Hell will freeze over first. I have opened a Filckr paid account which is less than $10 a month and I am slowy rebuilding my libary.

    Off-topic from the original post (sorry) but I moved all my pictures from Photobucket to imgbb.com and re-linked all images in my posts to their new home. Imgbb is free and they don't seem to care about hotlinking (which was the issue with Photobucket). The hardest part was finding all my posts with images in them

    Cheers!

    Great. I’ll check that out and hopefully post some photos so I can identify the coolant sensor!

    I have tried to get my pics off of phototwat and failed as now I am no longer on an ad-free subscription my PC gets bombarded with adverts to such an extent I cannot use their web site to retrieve my pictures, they are a sharp practice unprincipled money grabbing con machine.

    Update. Changed the sensor on a Friday - o ring wouldn’t come out so lost all the coolant whilst fishing for it. New sensor fitted, coolant topped up and now running at 90. Fiddly, job but worth it.
