The Audi A6, depending on the year, could have a 3.0-litre or 3.2-litre engine. The water sensor or coolant temperature sensor sends a signal to the computer. The sensor works with the engine coolant sender, which sends the temperature of the engine, via voltage, to the gauge. The computer uses the signal from the sensor to turn the fans on and to adjust the air/fuel mixture.
