Problem With My Audi A4 by BestySam(m): 1:15pm On Nov 16, 2016
I recently bought a used Audi A4 from a nairalander.

The seller told me that the only thing I need to fix is the Shock and every other thing is sound. I went with a mechanic to inspect the car and the mechanic observed the shock weren't working.

After transacting, we left to a workshop to fix the shock. I observed the car overheats whenever I use the AC. I repaired and tested it worked. Few hours later the overheating started after using the AC again.

Also, the starring is strong, I have changed the starring pump it worked very good. After some hours, it started again.

Please I need help as I don't know what to do and I am not ready to spend more money without positive result.

So far I have spent close to 50k without result.

And this is my first car.


Edit:

I got another car, the 2004 model and there's nothing like it.

Always ask the newbies to avoid Mercedes benz, BMW, Audi, and Peugeot if not financially buoyant enough.

I can take care of the problem but just don't want to spend without yielding positive result. I don't know if the mechanic is responsible but they said he's an Audi specialist. He keeps telling me that I got a very good car, I just need to fix the the AC problem (over heating) and I'll enjoy the ride and I can't use it without the AC.

He told me yesterday that I need to change the double cylinder gasket and refill the gas then everything will be okay.

I will advise you not to be too desperate to get it repaired, as you might end up with gambling mechanics.

Check to make sure your Audi has not been tampered with especially cooling fans then wash the find of the condenser and radiator to make sure it is not clogged with dirt.

The condenser is in front of the radiator and generates heat if the fan can't pull air through both radiator and condenser the heat build up will cause your engine to overheat


Post a pic of your instrument cluster when the engine is hot need to see the readings to know what is going on

fully explain the overheating, only in USA were the AC is always linked to overheating, does the temperature go beyond 90

Yes when the AC is turned on the car increases rev becoz of the load from the ac pump but that shouldnt make the car overheat

Then on your powering its most likely you got sold a bleeped up power sterring pump unless, there is an issue with steering rack check if there is no leaks on lines though if you had leaks you would hear thr pump making noise once the resevor is empty

I have changed the blades and the fan is working just well.

The reading is not showing, I think it was disconnected deliberately by the previous mechanic so it won't detect when the car overheats. I have travelled long distance and no sign of overheating. Immediately I put on the AC overheating starts abruptly.

Thanks for your response.

I drove for over 4 hours there was no sign of overheating. If I put on the AC and drive for just 20mins the overheating starts. I've accepted my fate I think I'll have to do without the AC for now.

Meanwhile, I just noticed that the starring is getting free. The mechanic I was referred to said there's nothing wrong it's only air and the starring problem would vanish in some days.

So far, my problem is the overheating. Everyone seems to love the car so selling is not an option.

does the car temperature go over 90 or mid point, why am asking because what most people call overheating in USA is actually the normal operating temperature due to the fact that if one drives a car that had a thermo removed the temp guage would point half of the normal operating point, then when they get a car that has a thermstat and the guage is midway (operating temperature point) they think the car is overheating

so in your cause tell us the reading you are getting on the gauge whenyou say its overheating
