My 2000 Audi A4 has 62k miles on it. Some people tell me to change it @ 60k and some 70k. What is it? What's the longest you can wait?
Also have any of your guys done it yourself? I have a friend that rebuilts classic car engines and some newer engines. He has been nice enough to step up and offer to do it. Where's a good place to buy the timing belt or brand to buy? What else would I need? I know everybody else had been telling me to change the water pump because if it goes your going to have to tear it all apart again.

I'd appreciate it!!!!!! :thumbsup:

With all due respect Audi Russe, I think you mean 100,000 kms, not miles.
Yes get the water pump changed. If it goes later on you just gonna have to go through a whole lot of work ($) to get at it again.
And don't take chances with this. If the belt fails, it cause huge damage to the engine and there is no good ending to that story.
