To be clear, the smell was present before I had the heat on, but turning the heat on brings the smell into the cabin. I ran it about 70 miles last night and there was no smell, then I went to the bank this morning and noticed the smell in the parking lot...hoped it was someone else, but nope.
which engine you got?

Both hoses going into the heater core are hot, so that means coolant is flowing through it, but i get no heat out of vents. Its starting to get cold in CT. any tips?

your heater core is plugged up. the way it sits and coolant flows it, it's just flowing in one hose and out the other (they're both in the same end tank) so it essentially self bypasses. you can try pulling both hoses and sucking the coolant out and filling it with CLR over night, it works from time to time for enough to get through a winter anyways. but inevitably, this:

once that was out, the manifolds and turbos had to be removed to access the bellhousing bolts.

holy ****! thats some work. hope they pay you well.
ill try the clr. i was so excited that both hoses were hot, that it wasnt core anything else i can check? i THINK when i got the car, it had heat. i put a stereo in, but just a basic plug and play head unit. anything i could have bumped? and is it normal for the snow flake to always be on?

Always have wanted an RS6... They are just so insanely difficult to work on and their maintenance is so regular & expensive. I still plan on getting one once I'm financially capable of maintaining one. Love what a sleeper they are.

it's not really all that difficult to work on. just R&R engine for starter
or transmission
or coolant leaks
or turbos
or cats
or o2 sensors
or just about anything else.

the heater core is a 10 hour gig, i've done a few of them and finish up in between 4.5 and 6 hours.

the 3.0 heads were 25 hours, i've got like 15 in them and put 20 miles on it today.

RS6 was 32 hours, finished up in 16.7 or something like that with over an hour spent torching turbo to manifold and downpipe to turbo hardware.

snowflake on dash or snowflake on AC controls?

water pump/thermostat housing. under the intake manifold, rear of engine above transmission/starter. plastic housing. it's driven by it's own little timing belt off the balance shaft and is a mother****er, but check there first.

Snow flake on AC control whenever I hit auto. I don't have digital dash. I've done the thing to make AC control display codes but no idea what it means. Also, where should temp gauge be on dash?mines like a quarter before half normally. One of the things I'm doing in next couple days is a tstat

Temp guage should be right at 190, about dead center. Could be tstat, could be the half of the ect for the guage. Could also be your problem, although you should still have some heat eventually either way. IIRC the snowflake would mean the ac compressor is running.

The guy I've become real cool with at the dealer got an FSI B7 A4 the other day. The cam follower wore all the way through, down to the pump stem, and tore off the "cap" on the end of the stem. That cap proceeded to get thrown through the cam chain housing, lol.

He also just got an oil consumption complaint on a TSI B8 A4, Audi OK'd 4 pistons and rings. He told me he can do em in 8 hours if everything is smooth, so I'm gonna hold him to it tomorrow, lol.

by vcds, do you mean vagcom? my uncle has a copy, and i think im getting it for my birthday on sunday too. what do i need that for?
and for all the research into transmission, ive never seen anything about pumping fluid back into trans... or anything about filling it either
care to elaborate? im not trying to play pro audi mechanic, just trying to get this stuff done, and i cant afford to take it to a shop. audi is a whole new world to me. im used to wrenching on my mustang

ok... so i have a pump i use to fill the manual trans in my mustang. seems like same concept here. pump fluid in until overflows. start car, with brake shift into every gear for 10 seconds, turn off, fill back up. done?
