On the 10v ur-qs, the sender is mounted in a part of the system that is not
self-venting. If the system loses water (small radiator hole?) the gauge can
end up dry and only washed with coolant on bends. The main symptom is erratic
and rapid movements of the water temperature gauge.
Offhand, I don't know if the 90 20v needs bleeding like the ur-q does, but I
know that once Audi invent a baffling idiosyncracy they like to hang on to it.
