Asked by Sep 11, 2010 at 08:56 PM about the 2001 Audi A6 2.7T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought this car and it runs great but the third time i started it it beeped and a warning light came on that looks like a thermometer floating in flowing water but the cars not overheating according to the gauge, however one of the fans is always running and its louder than it should be. Could the fan starting to go bad cause this?

it's your engine coolant, you need to put more in or there is something wrong and your car is over heating. you can't just put any kind of coolant also look in the owners manual for the right one.
