It sounds like you have more than one problem with your Audi. The coolant leak and the ignition switch are two separate issues. I would recommend that you take the car to the Audi dealer or to an independent garage that specializes on German cars and have the vehicle checked.

u could try cleaning the idle control valve

If you are not familiar with the timing I would not recommend you doing the work yourself, this is a major job to a novice. The timing keeps the engine in sync so that nothing contacts each other, the pistons and the valves, cam etc all have to do there job at a set time within a split second, a mistake on timing can result in complete enegine failure and meaning in most cases new cylinder head, new belts, tensioners, pullys, water pump, gasket etc etc etc.

I would get it into a garge as it is a staright forward task for them although does take a few hours and is often quite costly because of this. average price for a regular car is £225 for an Audi it could be more like £400 thats assuming you are in the UK.

EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation.If there is no vacuum to EGR valve then Verify that all vacuum lines are properly routed, not kinked or twisted.Also check the vacuum lines properly connected to their respective hoses. The EGR valve is controlled by a solenoid to give two modes of operation:
When the solenoid is off vacuum from the plenum opens the valve. So when intake vacuum reaches a certain level at around 3500 rpm the EGR valve opens and dumps exhaust into the intake for emission purposes.This happens all the time when driving.
The ECU can also turn on the solenoid and provide vacuum to open the valve. The ECU randomly tests the system for operation to make sure the emissions system is working. This is just a test and is not all the time.If this test fails it sets the CEL.
Unfortunately as the cars get older, blow by gas condense and block up the EGR port, which then needs to be cleaned.The EGR mod allows the valve to open when the ECU tests the emissions but not allow the plenum vacuum to open it.
Thus the valve is open less often, this means potentially more power and that the EGR passage will block up less often.However the EGR passage must still be unblocked for it to work.----------Replace the EGR valve solenoid.If cleaning the valve is not helping.
-----------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code. You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership. Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

I have yet to see the car made after 1980 which does not have that pump built into the bottom of the reservoir. i am sure that car is out there, nonetheless and audi may well be that car. in case i am wrong take a look at the bottom of the washer reservoir and see if there aren't two wires plugged in and a hose coming out. if that is where it is, the next step is to jumper the battery directly to the plugs to make sure the pump is not working. if the pump works your problem is elsewhere, like the switch. if the pump does not work call a dealer and ask them if it can be replaced without buying a whole new reservoir assembly. if the pump is not inside the reservoir then just follow the hose, it has to find the pump eventually.
