20 Most Recent 2001 Audi A6 Questions & Answers

One likely possibility why the engine loses power and stalls could be because of the air compression rate going from the engine air filter and the engine, which is the AIR MASS METER HOSE located between the air filter box and the engine, which could be cracked. This happens when a careless mechanic changes the engine air filter without untightening the ring that holds the hose to the air filter box, causing the hose to be twisted to the point of breakage. It is not immediately apparent, but checking its condition would be the first thing to do.

Remove the spark plugs and measuring the distance through the plug holes with a rod, very gently turn the crankshaft (either way) until you are certain all the pistons are well below tdc and then gently bring the camshaft(s) to the timing position, followed by bringing the crank to the timing position.

1. Jack the car up on Axel stands/ramps or if you have access to a pitit will make life a little easier. 2. You need to remove the splash guard underneath the car so you can seethe back of the gear box. 3. Drain the gear box of oil which will require a special tool which youcan get for £10 from Draper Expert 1/2 Square Drive Drain Plug Key For VW Or Audi63476 Draper Hdpk1. 4. Remove the electronic cable that connects onto the ECU that protrudesout the back of the back of the gear box. 5. The back of the gearbox has 12 torques holding the cover in place.Once you have removed most of them you will need to remove the rear enginemount to get at the last torque bolt at the top of the gear box. 6. Support the gear box with a trolley jack so you can lower the gearboxto get at the last few torques. 7. The rear engine mount can be slid towards the back of the car so youcan get at the back of the gear box. There is a couple of other bolts that youwill need to remove that hold the ECU cable in place. 8. Once you have all the torques that hold the gearbox in place thecover can be slid off. 9. Once the cover is removed be careful not to bend the metal gasket asit can be used again as long as it's not damaged (Audi would probably changethis along with the ECU seal). 10. Once the cover is off you can now see the ECU which is held in placeby 3 torques or Star bolts. 11. After the 3 torques have been removed you can then slide the ECU offbut be careful not to bend or tilt it as you remove it from the gearbox as ithas guide rails made of plastic which can break easily.

if the radio is the original one you can get the original code from audi for a small fee. if its been replaced you can send it in for decoding on an internet site that do decoding for a fee. or you could be lucky and its written on the unit, but you will need to remove it to find out.

Yes, replace the thermostat. Then you need to 'burp the coolant system'. Your car has all the hallmarks of air in the system, especially a heater that is cold. This is because there is no water in the heater matrix. This is why it overheats. The system must be full and with no air to circulate correctly through the radiator.

Burping involves the following steps.

Remove the lid to the reservoir, remove the radiator cap, fill the radiator to the top, turn heating on full blast, start engine and get to operating temperature, keep topping up. Squeezing the radiator hoses helps. The level will rise and then drop when the thermostat opens. Top up when bubbles stop and the level becomes constant. Put radiator cap on, top up the reservoir and put the cap on that.

It doesn't have a stand alone relay like older cars and trucks, it is a synthetic click that is produced by the Body control module through the driver door speaker.
