Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a VW EOS 2.0FSI (2007) The car has done 44,000 miles. I had the car as a demonstrator from my local VW Dealer but I have complained since the car was new that is uses a huge amount of oil. I cannot go more than about 1300 miles with out the oil light coming on, it usually take 1.75 litres just to get it register on the stick. The garage keeps fobbing me off telling me this is normal?? As they won't investigate it, I have an agreement that everytime the light comes on, I drive it to them and they can top it up. (I'm know as the oil lady!) The car has now devloped further problems.. 4 weeks ago they replaced the coolant tank. It is currently back at the dealer once again as it broke down once again. Apparently now it is the Gear Box Oil Cooler.. I apparently have a wonderful mix of Gear Box Oil and Coolant in the tank.... Can anyone offer me advice please??

Go above the dealer and file a complaint. Sounds like the lemon law could possibly help.

Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,
But not to say the other guys were wrong...

Yes you could have a faulty oil cooler.But The oil in the coolent has nothing to do with the camshaft.There just trying to make a fast buck from you.Tell them just to change the oil cooler and nothing else.

This is classic case failed head gasket. You changed your oil 4 years ago?
There is more to this story I think. Maybe you changed the transmission oil 4 years ago and and now you have water in the trans? Not good. You have trans oil in the radiator? Not good. You have engine oil in the radiator? Not good. You have water in the engine? Not good. You have engine and trans oil in the radiator? Doubble not good.
You should have a reputable shop take a look at your 22 year old car to see if it is salvagable.

The most cheapest way is as follow: Disconect the hoses from the oil cooler and connect them together.Clean coolant system from the oil and drive about 20 miles.Check again coolant system.If there is oil-change cylinder head gasket.If not-change oil cooler.If you are in London go to see Hall service centre N17 Ferry lane next to Hall subway station-Tottenham.Tell Duane -Sabo send me here.

replace the oil cooler first before you change the head gasket ,but normally a 10 year old vehicle often has gasket fatigue ,not made like a good old fashioned copper head gasket ,they rarely went wrong
