I have a 1.6 Audi A3 . there are a number of issues .

1) coolant level keeps dropping. I got it pressured check. so I was advised to get the pump changed as it had a possible leak. which means I need to get the timing belt and pump changed.


2) he also noticed the engine was loud, which isn't smooth for petrol 1.6 . he said the timing belt might correct this. or it could be the alternator. but won't know until he takes it apart when he fits timing belt Nd pump he will inform if that's needs replacing too.

3) Also I've noticed the car judders on gear 1 and 2 when changing gears. could all this be related?

I don't know much cars so I don't want to get ripped off by the garage. hence why I want some opinions as to possible causes so I have some knoweldge before I go back to the garage.

it's an Audi a3 , 1.6 petrol. 75k on clock.

Someone has had the car in front of them, seemingly looked at it and given you some diagnosis.

We dont have crustal balls here.

If there is a water leak than needs fixed and requires belts etc....them common sense would tell you to do that first.

If the other problem persists, then look at it. Which could be related or it may not. Could be clutch, gearbox, any mountings, could be anything really.
