      So, update.

      Guy I took it to has had it a week, he figures its the water pump, but he can't get to it as he's been told, and seen, that you need to either lift or rock the engine to remove, along...
    2. Highly Regarded Audi/VW Shop, Who Is Your Go To?

      It looks like the water pump in my 2008 A3 has crapped the bed and I'm looking around for a highly regarded, but not too expensive shop that can fix it admirably. Cost is a bit of an issue, which...

      Could I use the 50/50 G12 coolant I'm going to get to top it off before driving it to the shop be used instead of water, or should it be water?

      Dumb question is, where do you put the water? I know you shouldn't open the coolant reservoir when the engine is hot, do you have to wait for it to cool down?

      Thanks man, I've got hopefully someone lined up to look at it who's not too far from here, not Audi specific but he's worked on a lot of luxury and European cars, plus if it isn't very specialized...

      Thanks man. Lacking a proper jack (I know, I know) I'm gonna top it off and take it to a mechanic I trust and was recommended to look at it and he's much, much, much cheaper than the dealership. I'll...

      Not sure if its OEM fluid, it has to be coming from the sphere in the engine compartment on the passenger side, the leak looks like it is right in the middle of the car, not really on either side. As...

      Okay, thanks. I guess my final question is, with the color and location it's definitely coolant and not transmission?

      UPDATE.

      Got home after the car sat for about four hours, not leaking.

      Turned it on, let it idle for a while, drip or two, put it under load (rev'd it in park) and it started to leak from a few...

      Thanks man! If all doesn't go well, would an Aamco or the like be able to handle a vwaudi reasonably well since it is a fairly common problem with cars of a certain age? Or is the dealership (and...

      I'd love to just top off weekly until I could figure it out, but it was (when I left her) leaking like a pretty profusely, I'll check how bad when its cooled down. I'll take the pan off and see what...

      Are there any common areas where this type of leak would happen. I've never had an issue today and it looks like it was leaking just cooling off in the garage. I'll check on it shortly and see what...

      Would this be a radiator related thing right? So would any corner shop be able to look at it, or take it to a VAG shop or dealership? Just not sure what to do and don't to spend a ton either :(
    16. Help! Clear/Pinkish Liquid dripping from under engine bay. No sure what to do.

      It's all in the subject. I went home for lunch today and noticed a very large puddle under the middle of the car, its dripping about a drop a second from the engine bay, directly in the center and is...
