Good Morning - I'm in a pretty good bind. I have an Audi A4 (2007), that has begun it's slow...well, quick, actually...death. First, the A/C went out about a month ago, and now it's having cooling system issues. The steam is coming from the back of the engine area...not near the radiator. Either way, I could use a few suggestions on what to do with this car. Like most people, I need transportation, but I'm also extremely limited on funds...as in...like...none. Thanks for any ideas. - Chuck
Coolant at back of the engine is probably a heater hose. Inspect the area and replace the hose and lost coolant, if you have enough money.
Thank you Tom...certainly worth looking into! I appreciate you taking the time to answer. - Chuck
As you put more miles on your A4 a lot of things will all need replacement. The back of engine leak is most likely your black plastic coolant hose flange. Audizine.com is a good place to start for repairs. ECS Tuning and 034 Motorsports are good part suppliers. But it's time to revive its slow death march one plastic piece and one Benjamin at a time. May the Force be With You!!!
That's a huge help..THANK YOU!
