SOURCE: Water Pump has gone in my Audi
it's not an easy job. and requires removal of many components in the front of the engine. However, you can go the the public libuary an look up a Haynes or Chilton auto repair manual. Good luck and you'll need a good set of tools and this would also be an excellent time to change the timing belt.

Depends on where you go. A dealer is going to charge you through the nose. An independent shop will be somewhat less. I'd recommend you do the whole timing belt service though - the water pump's replacement schedule is along with the t-belt, tensioner, serpentine, etc.
If you're in the northeast US, reply here with an email address and we can talk. I do Audi servicing out of my own garage and can likely beat the indie shop's prices (and the dealer for sure) since I don't have the overhead of a shop:)

The previous solution offered is most likely correct. However, in the event that you discover that the timing belt is not at fault, here are some things to consider:
There is a slight possibility that the spark plugs are not firing. Check your distributor cap and electrical connection to the spark plugs to be sure that current is being delivered to them. A power failure to the spark plugs would exactly mirror these symptoms: A sudden engine failure, but a working electrical system that cranks the engine. The fact that the engine turns over indicates that there is nothing else wrong with the electrical system. With continued attempts to start it, however, the battery will eventually die. Keep an eye on that and make sure you have access to an assisting car or a booster kit in that event.
This brings into question the fuel system. If the engine is attempting to start with no result, it is possible that fuel is not being delivered to the engine cylinders correctly (again, this is also in keeping with the previous solution, so make sure to double check the timing belt first). Possible culprits are: the fuel injectors, the fuel sending unit (fuel pump), or the fuel filter. It is unlikely that the fuel injectors have malfunctioned so quickly and totally. Check your fuel filter first, as it is the easiest of the three to inspect. It is usually located along the fuel line between the gas tank and the engine.
If none of these systems are malfunctioning, you will need to look deeper with the assistance of a qualified technician. Make sure, in any event, to connect your car's OBDII system to a diagnostic utility to read any warnings or alerts that the car's computer is indicating.
Good luck, and post new information about the issue as it becomes available!!

The valve timing must be out. You will need to verify that the timing marks on your camshaft sprocket(s) are set at the correct position when you rotate the engine to the compression stroke on TDC.
