1) the after-run coolant pump has been "deleted" -
you want to use that. mine cycled even after nomal driving in moderate
weather and the cooling system was in good shape. it's nothing but good
insurance for the turbo / oil / etc. besides, they wouldn't have put it
there for no reason. try www.thepartsconnection.com for great prices and the
best customer service around. audiquattroparts.com also has a great
selection. i replaced mine at 1 point and it was about 200$ you'll likely
need a couple of new coolant hoses with the correct connections to the pump.
2) the hydraulic pump is leaking -
ive read many people that have had luck with this but can be a pita to get
apart + rebuilt successfully. being lazy i'd probably try to source a
rebuilt one w/ a warranty and bolt it in.
Stay informed on Election 2004 and the race to Super Tuesday.
