    Cooling issues

    Hey guys,

    After just fixing the stumble/ misfire on my A5 a week ago, yesterday I noticed that my cooling fan would be on all day (during a drive and after turning the engine off). At first I didn't pay much mind to it until the fan was really loud on the way home at night. Today the same issue happened when I had to take my brother to school in the morning. This time I noticed that the temperature needle would slightly go up. I got home and left my car in the garage and didn't bother touching it for a couple hours. I checked the coolant level and noticed that it was just a bit lower from the minimum line and thought maybe that could be an issue but I doubt it could be it since it isn't a lot that is missing. I left my car on while in the garage to let it reach normal temperature and once it did the fan kicked on again. Now I had to use my car and wasn't expecting much to happen but noticed that it began to over heat again but this time it was really close to the hot area.

    Is there anything to look for before taking it in to get it checked out?

    Thanks!

    Your thermostat is probably partially stuck closed if it's overheating.

    Weird thing is when it happened I turned on the heater and that seemed to cool it down.
    I'll take it in and ask to check the thermostat and hopefully it's just that and nothing else.

    That's not weird. That is exactly what you should expect because you are dumping the engine heat to the car interior.
