a strange noise from the engine compartment of a 2000 a6 audi began several months ago. the noise became progressively louder. i then suspected a water pump malfunction was forthcoming. the vehicle was taken to an audi dealer for evaluation. they determined that the water pump was defective, and recommended a replacement. most people would not have recognized this noise and an on road accident could have taken place on a freeway when the engine would have overheated and seized. since there was only 31500 miles on the vehicle i am concerned that this type of problem occurred at all. either the pump shaft was bent by an over tightened belt or the part was defective at manufacturing point. (the belt has never been adjusted after purchase). *jb

(1) events leading up to the failure: none--i've been experiencing a coolant leak since day one. only recently has it gotten worse and now i see that there is water in my coolant. (2) failure and its consequences - coolant in oil causes premature damage of engine components (bearings, turbos). new engine costs exceed $15,000. new turbos costs exceed $5,000. this problem is posted all over audiworld.com. multiple people have had the oil checked and determine that high levels of copper (caused by coolant) were in the oil and would result in near-term engine/turbo failure. (3) what was done to attempt to fix the problem: (a) coolant system checked three times by audi service at my cost and they have not been able to determine the problem. costs so far exceed dollars with no fix in sight; (b) water-pump replaced ; (c) secondary water-pump replaced i am about to pay $2000 to get the head-gaskets replaced. unfortunately this is a maybe fix since the problem cannot get diagnosed. multiple people have posted on audiworld that they have had the same job completed with no benefits to the problem.
