Default A4 coolant leak

So my '98 A4 2.8 quattro is leaking coolant in the front right. It is a very very slow leak... i filled it about 3 weeks ago and its not even half way back down to the add line again. But there is a very small drip puddle under it each day. I had it looked at and they said "probably a cracked radiator", but they didn't actually take it apart. Anyone else have a problem similar to this or have ideas for what it could be or what I should look at to figure this one out? Thanks a bunch!

if the leak is minor then this will do to save expense on a new radiator ( no good for a leaking water pump ) but very good for the radiator

Ok, the Polygard Radseal is what you're talking about right? Its fine to mix that with the audi antifreeze then, right? (I believe its G12). I have heard of water pumps being an issue on this model before... would that have anything to do with leaking the coolant? Should I get that checked out too? Thanks a ton, i'm new at owning an Audi and need to learn some of this stuff!

hey i just bought an audi a4 01 quattro and i'm getting that problem now too. i went to an oil changer spot and they said its my waterpump gasket broke off. anyone know the estimate for fixing this problem. thanks

ps. this is another question, has anyone had problems with their key getting stuck when taking the key out of the igintion. it gets stuck sometimes when i drive with my moonroof open, or when i have low gas. i've cleaned the key, just any suggestions. thanks
