Title: It went off like a grenade
Post by: jayryan on June 11, 2007, 08:38:29 AM
My power steering pump...last night. Went boom, threw fluid and shards everywhere. The car's sitting at APS right now...well, so am I for that matter. At least I'm getting an oil change out of it before I leave. I'll be here another day now too  ::)

It was actually the AC compressor and since they're not certified to work on it, the threw the "Euro" belt on there aka. no AC belt, changed my oil and sent me on my way, overall a quick stop. So I didn't take up TOO much of your time.

My entire AC system could be hosed depending on much shrapnel ended up in the rest of the system so we'll see. I'm not even going to THINK about the cost of replacing the compressor alone  :-\ Kinda makes me want to hurl.

oh well...damn Audis. Guess I need to get a job now :P

I think it's just the car's way of saying "I wanna be a race car when I grow up!"  ;D

Yeah, I'm just beginning to wonder...the power gain was more than noticeable. Car's louder too...strange what eliminating one pulley will do. I'd like to get it fixed though...not sure when.
