Hard Brakes in Deep Snow!
I hope this has not been a recent thread but here goes.
I own an '87 4000csq. In deep snow the brakes seem to get
rock hard. I then have NO modulation in the brake system. If I
push REAL HARD the brakes will lock up, otherwise no braking at
all. As you can imigane this puts a damper on winter quattro
I also have another unrelated problem. I did notice a
thread on heating problems. I just joined the list so I am not
fully informed on the thread. However I to have "Cold Heat" from
my quattro. The engine never seems to heat up. The temp needle
doesn't even get to the first mark on the gauge. I have tried
cardboard on the radiator trick with no luck. I have replaced
the thermostat twice. Both times I checked the thermostat in hot
water and the old and new both seem to work according to specs.
Is there some kind of by-pass that allows the coolent to flow by
the thermostat? If so how does this work?
An interesting point. A friend of mine has an '84 4000q
and has the exact same two problems. Are these normal problems?
