    I read somewhere, that different coloured coolants, shouldn't be mixed; i.e. if you've got pink in you car currently, don't top up with blue.

    Surely the specification of the coolant is the only thing that matters?

    Anybody mixed their colours?

    Your not supposed to mix them, the approach I would take is if the manufacturer was ok for you to mix they would have made them the same colour.

    An update to this thread, it turned out to be the coolant valve leaking rather than just the seal. The car has been back since then because I noticed the coolant had dropped again but they never found any leaks and said it may have been an airlock that has worked itís way out this dropping the level. Will keep an eye on this.

    I've just had a look in the manual and you can mix them, according to the blurb at the bottom of page 390.

    My car goes in on the 21st Jan, it'll be interesting to see if the problem is the same as yours. I'll report back once the car has been repaired.

    Car back, work done. There IS a TPI but only for internal use by Audi and their dealers. I asked for the TPI number and was told it wasn't available.

    This suggests that Audi are well aware of the problem and are looking to avoid paying for the work to be done.

    Hi - has anyone else had this problem? I have exactly the same issue with the coolant shut off valve failing but sadly I'm a couple of months on the wrong side of my warranty. My local dealer is trying their best to get Audi UK to contribute to a £2k repair bill but so far has had no success.

    Any info on similar cases and what your dealer did would be much appreciated!

    As long as your car has been serviced according to schedule I would fight to get Audi to pay up mate. That is a catastrophe failure of a non serviceable part just past warranty. Hope you get it done by Audi.

    I bought extended warranty before my warranty expired so I could argue if Audi didn’t pay, and then Audi warranty probably would have paid.

    We have one coming in next week with this, a 2016 with the CRTC engine and using his VIN there are no TPI's about this problem on ELSAPRO nor for any other 4M I have tried.
    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.

    Thanks for your update. It is pretty infuriating to say the least. In all credit to my dealer they are trying their best to argue my case with Audi. It certainly sounds like there may be a manufacturing fault with the component. Iíll let you know how I get on
