    Alright ppl
    I have had a major coolant leak on my Audi A4 avant (2004) 190bhp
    120000 miles full ASH
    The same issue happened three years ago and it turned out to be the J-plug that was at fault so I thought it was the same thing but have been told by a local garage that it's my water pump
    So I am having it replaced with the belts etc with a kit called GATES ?
    Has anybody on here used or no of them and are there stuff any good
    Thanks

    gates are a very good belt. when i did the alli pulleys on my 300zx and my gto. i used gates belts. and most of the motor factors around my way sell them. so i would recomend them.

    Thanks for the reply Neil got the car back at 8 tonite and what a difference runs much better and pulls better well seems to anyway
    guy at garage has sayed he thinks the belts haven't ever been changed and that the water pump was totalled so fingers crossed that's the end of it
    Thanks again for your input

    So did you buy the car with no history of the belt and pump being done?

    I have the service paperwork and the belt got changed at 30k miles not the pump so the pump and other bits have been from new
    Car has 120k on it now so it's been well over due to get changed

    Wow that's impressive.
    Shows how long these parts can last if left alone.

    I think it's a bit of luck and good driving (wife is taking the credit for that lol ) as the car isn't pushed hard or abused
