I HAVE A 98, AUDI A6 WITH A 2.8 ENGINE AND IT HAS 125,000 MIL. Wich is overheating the recnt parts that I replaced was the engine coolant tempeture sensor ( I replaced the coolant sensor becuse thats the only code that I recived from my diagnostic reader ) and I also replaced the thermastat and finally I replaced all of the coolant hoses.
as I drive the car on the freeway for about 15 min the heat gauge arrow stayes in the middle of it and whene I have to stop at a intersection the arrow markes hot but whene I get moving agian it goes back to the middle and when in done using the car it goes back to hot agian.
the diagnostic read is also reading a missfire, and in the same cylinder where it, s missfiring there is a leak of oil in the spark wire hole its not the gasket thats connecting the block to the head its anther diffrent gasket
what I replaced in this section of the engine is the spark plug the spark wires and tha coil assembley and finaly I replaced the battire
