Question about 1999 Volkswagen Golf
If i fill the expansion tank with water and close lid tightly, the engine runs for only two to three minutes before water starts to overflow from tank when the lid is taken off. It has a fuel smell to it and starts to steam shortly after. The overheat alarm goes off after engine has been running for just a few minutesI don't notice a milky color to the oil but it may have been changed before I purchased. Could this be a possible blown head or head gasket? the engine seems to run good other than this with only 40,000 miles on it. Also, where to look if all fuses to the electric fan system appear ok.
If your oil is milky it is a blown head gasket or worse a warped head.
