it ran hot for the first time today so I added coolant but it is leaking out. What should I do?

Steering is on hard lock . I am also getting one wheel spinning bk drivers when taking off ?? Any simple things to look out for before I take it to the garage . I do know a little about cars . Thanks from Bonnie Scotland

i know there is no 100% quarantie , but anyone knows what i need to check to make sure is good to buy , whats the best way to inspect it to find problems or covert damages

The wheel spins when just starting to move away ?? Drive shaft proble

the front windows drop to allow easy door closure but the drivers side does not operate is there a micro switch somewhere to control this also the fuel and temp gauges are intermittent in opperation

could it be a failed relay if so where are they on the car

The sound starts as soon as I turn on my car and seems to vary if I accelerate or apply the brakes. Brake pads are good. It sounds like air rushing out of a tire.

The spring is cracked and needs to be replaced.

Every time I start my car I can hear it turning over, but will not start. When I put the key in the position of when I put in the egnition, it will start. (always starts second-third time. If I have driven the car an the engine is warm, it will start back up on first try. Any help?! Thanks.

I just bought a 2001 audi tt quattro, an the previous owners had it taken to a mechanic to have the cover gaskets replaced. Apparently from the knocking noise, it is one of the valves. I cannot find anywhere on the internet on how to adjust the valve. I have had BMW's so I am new to working on the engine of an audi. Any help? Thanks.

I start up my 2000 audi tt, when the outside temperature is around 20-30 degrees F, and the rpm meter moves to about 600 rpm's then jumps to about 1000, and does that reapetedly,(about every 2 seconds)until I drive it for a little while, then this occurs less often, until I start it up again in cold weather. I'm really curious to know if that means that my o2 sensor has failed or if my car's just getting old. It currently has 152000 miles on the odometer. If it may be something else, please inform me as well.

I just started today. I went to pop open the trunk and the button inside the car, just in front of the gear shifter, would not open the trunk. Then I tried the gas cap open button and it also would not work.

do i also need to change water pump with it

OBD codes P0172 + P1296; engine stumbles, idles rough occasionally. Ideas?

i changed the plugs, coils, mass airflow censor and fuel filter still having same problem noticed when i don't give it a lot of gas it isn't as bad.

THE GAUGE TEMERATURE ALWEYS IS FULL AND ENGIEN IS NOT TO HOT IS NO OVER THAN 180 F DEEGRE BECOSUE I PUT ANOTHER GAUGE FOR TO SEE THE CORRECT DEGREE WHAT YOU RECOMEND TANKS

Purchase my 2003 Audi Quattro TT in June 2010 and took it to the local Audi dealer to look it over. Been taking it there for problems since. They never looked at my timing belt or recommended that I have it replaced. I understand that replacement should have been done at 7 years. Timing belt just broke and ruined my engine. Are they at least partially responsible?

Driving on a uneven country road, I heard a hit underneath (stone?). Now, the engine starts, but dies after few seconds,the cluster instruments lights on board doesn't work, the fuse #11 (5A - instr. cluster, shiftlock,
autom. beam control) burns each time I replace it.
Please don't send me to mechanic, I have to try to fix it myself; I'm good on mechanics, once I know what I have to do.
Thank you!

This problem started a year ago but in the beginning only less than a minute and only when the weather temp. was low (close to or below 0 deg. cel.). Now is has become much worse and the instruments on/off can continue after start for 10-15 minutes even in quite warm weather. If the car is very heathed by the sun I never have this problem.

I fear my 2nd and 3rd gear syncro's are on their way out, I'm going to do a transmission fluid replacement ASAP to see if my gear grinding shift problems are solved. However, just in case-- how much does it cost to rebuild an 2000 Audi tt (quattro, manual trans.) transmission, and where would be some of the best places in the bay area to do this?

would this cause a code reading secondary air flow .

how many quarts doe's a audi need?

I have an 01 Audi TT Quattro and my defroster is stuck in the on position. I press the button and nothing happens. Also, I cannot change the fan speed or the temperature. The only thing I can do is turn the air on and off by pulling or pushing the knob.

Why could the light be on if the car has been running great? For several days Gwhit24@earthlink.net

When I run the car cold (as it needs to be), and I shift into 2nd, it get an audible grind (but the gear catches fine). As the car warms up, the sound disappears completely on 2nd gear shift. Occasionally, I'll feel the gears grind when I shift into 3rd (hot or cold engine). Is it my clutch? Or my transmission? Would it need to be rebuilt, or can this be fixed by changing the tranny fluid?

How many miles would you expect to get before replacing a turbo. What would be a sign of impending failure? Looking at a quatro with 153k miles, well maintained.

When I get to 3000 rpm the engine revs if I keep it under it drives great. I took it to an import place and they say it is the Fly Wheel. What is your opinion?

What would cause this car to cut off and not restart. Oil is good and so is battery. Alternator is good. Coils and Plugs are new and work. When I try to start the car the starter is spinning and so is the alternator pulley and belt. The timing belt is not spinning at all. and the engine is not turning over. Could this be cause by the fly wheel? Any thoughts on where I should begin?

Some time ago (3 months), my drivers window stopped going down automatically, when I just hit the button (it will go down if I hold the button down). And then, suddenly one day it did, and then a couple of weeks later it stopped again. It has not gone down automatically since. And then one morning, I noticed the drivers window stopped dropping down slightly when I opened the door.

I raised my car today to check a squeaking noise, and discovered that if I give it some gas while all 4 wheels are off the ground only the front wheels turn (the rear driveshaft does as well)

I was wondering if that was normal?
