    Loss of engine coolant. When driving at a brisk pace (cruising at 70-80

    mph) the coolant level level in the header tank drops from high to low over a distance of 80 miles.

    There are no obvious leaks from any of the coolant pipes nor the radiator.

    The coolant system does not appear to pressurise as I would expect in

    the event of a gasket failure or distorted cylinder head.

    Vehicle is a 2005, 2.5 litre diesel engined VW T5 camper van, mileage approx. 14000 miles. Problem started 28 Feb 2009

    Had the same problem water in the oil, no oil in the water which puzzled me. Checked everything oil cooler turbo anwhere the oil and water were common. Eventually when I exausted all the options I removed the head. Was disappointed that there was no visible problem.Skimmed the head any had every thing ready to go back but I was not happy. Happened to read the comment by Mark 19 and went to check the water pump. It was my problem bearing gone. So check the water pump. Who ever thought of putting the pump in there should have issued a health warning with the engine. Does anyone know where I can get the camshaft timing details and tork speck for this engine.

    is this vehicle blowing any excess smoke. With a warm engine take the radiator cap off and rev the engine to 2500 - 3000 and release it......what happens at the top of the radiator??.



    based on the information, it sounds like a head gasket.

I had the same problem with my T5 130. My mechanic replaced the head gasket to no avail,then we checked the oil filter,that was ok.then we went on to a web forum and found out that the AXD engine suffers from water pump failure.We took it off and it was corroded,the seal had failed and was pumping water into the block.My advice,CHECK WATER PUMP FIRST! Good luck Marc,Somerset.

Hello if the vehicle never over heated before this problem it looks like a defective engine oil cooler , see the oil cooler uses water from the radiator to bring down the oil temp if the oil cooler cracks it will mix water with oil it is not a catastrofic problem you just have to get a new oil cooler and flush the oil and the coolant from the engine . good lck

    The fault described is common for that year and model. The problem is a defective water pump bearing (end float) which allows water into the oil, later models incorporated a bleed hole between the seals to allow water to escape before pushing through bearings into the sump. The water pump is on the back of the block and is direct driven.

My caravelle 2.5 130 lost coolant intermittantly over 2 months. looked like head gasket, mechanic spoke to vw garage they said most likely oil cooler and that they had not heard of water pump failure, guess what it was the water pump, very corroded and bearing gone. seems ok now that has been changed. van has only done 34k miles 4 years old not impressed no more vw for me

Hi dear
1- Oil in the water, when the cylinder head gasket burn because ovaheating oil and water will mixed so you have to take cylinder head to check before you put the new gasket is there any craks, i would advice you to resurvice the head.
2- Some times when the water seal get crotion it makes leak and water will go to the oil sum.
3- check oil cooler.

Dear Sirs,

Have a vw transporter 2008 . the engine holds onto the revs for a couple of seconds longer than it should when changing gears.

Most noticeable in first and second gear. when revved while not moving engine responds perfect. I think it has something to do with the engine under pressure while accelerating. Can anyone help me ran diagnostic but no fault codes.

Its a 04 a4 tdi avant with 290k klm full service history from new im the 3rd owner,the turbo is whistling on accleration, is this good or bad?


This is a bad issue. From now you should think about turbocharger reparation or replacement with a new one. It's a normal turbo wear after 290k km. Pay attention at exhaust gases colour and at engine oil level! Good luck!
