2004 Audi A4 1.8t

Asked by May 06, 2017 at 05:51 PM about the 2004 Audi A4 1.8T quattro Sedan AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello. My Audi told me to check coolent lvl
then said check oil. And it lost power and
died on side of highway. I towed it home and
now it won't turn over. The cars ignition turns
on and all electrical seems to be working
fine just won't start up. Is the computer
keeping me from starting it? I tried resetting
the computer but it still won't turn over. Any
ideas? I know the coolent is out and needs
filled but would this keep the car from

1 Answer


Sounds like the car ran low on coolant, engine ran hot, and the head gasket blew.. Before you spend any more money on this car, make sure the head gasket isn't toast & that you have good, constant compression in all cylinders.
