Winterizing an Audi

#1

How do you winterize an Audi? Here in Interior Alaska, we regularly see an ambient temperature of 50 to 60 degrees below zero. All my other cars have a block heater, an oil pan heater, an a battery heater. Apparently, on Audis, you cannot install a block heater. So, any suggestions on what I do?

Just make sure that the coolant is O.K for that temp and drive one of your other cars until May.

If the head has freeze plugs, you can put a heater in. The Audi may even be able to start in low temps, but -60 is a bit much for any car. Some of the Alaska folks also own a trailer in Az. or NM and stay there for the winter. The answer is to get rich I guess.

They make a aftermarket coolant heater that goes in lower radiator hose.
