The failure mode as you described is fairly unusual- it shouldn't be 
a blown hose as that wouldn't go away with a cooldown :-)

As Phil suggested, dump the diagnostic codes; this should have been 
the very first thing your shop did.

The official Audi/VW tools, aka the VAG-155x family, are hideously 
expensive and only used, for the most part, by dealers and 
independent audi shops that do a LOT of VW/Audi business.  VAG-COM 
(with a Y-adapter cable) and ProDiag both can read the extended 
codes, which indicate to your whether a particular problem is 
considered intermittent or continuous by the ECU- the blink codes 
don't, unfortunately, but they do in a pinch to get you headed the 
right way.

Keep us posted with any results of diagnostics!
