Sounds like a vacuum leak left by the people who did the head job, or a bad brake booster diaphragm...

My 2007 2.5 touareg wont crank or start after overheating due to lack of coolant fluid. The engine lost power, cut out and didn't re-start. Any ideas? Is there an engine protection system on this car?

have a compression test done to check for dead rings and cylinder scores , cracked head and blown head gasket
there is an engine protection system and it is a limp mode that reduces power to allow the car to be driven off the road and then stopped
unfortunately most drivers think that the engine light/temp gauge or serious loss of power is to be ignored and suffer the consequences of that action

Got a 54 plate Vauxhall tigra was driving down the motorway steam came out from under the engine lights come up on the dash as the car had cut out it has no compression in the first 3 pots

Head gasket has blown. If it happened quickly then you might save the head itself, if not, then be prepared for a costly job whatever happens.

Hi...if your head gasket is blown it would have to be replaced to stop the over heating problem. And...YES... car will crank and move with blown head gasket.

Do not know what the problem is, but my check engine light is on? Recently had the oil changed and all fluids are filled up. Put in antifreeze/coolant and it was low within a week, but I found no leaking...

A loss of coolant with no apparent leak more than likely means you have a blown head gasket, cracked head, or both. Coolant entering the combustion chamber can cause a miss and that would set the Check Engine light. STOP driving this vehicle until you can find out for sure. You will destroy this engine if it has a blown head gasket and you continue to drive it. Other symptoms of a blown head gasket are white smoke from the exhaust and an overfull oil level with a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap. You will also have a sweet smell at the exhaust.

Car will only tickover at 400 - 500rpm whether hot or cold and usually just cuts out when you stop been told by local garage nothing can be done car runs perfect when driving normally car has done 117000...

Find another shop. The problem is in the vacuum system, most likely with the vacuum advance. If the car dies when idling in gear there is a problem keeping the throttle from adjusting correctly, unless of course it has a manual transmission in which case you wouldn't be leaving that car in gear without the clutch activated. Check the Vacuum advance, MAP sensor and Throttle position sensor, one or more of those is going to be faulty unless you have a major issue in your heads like a blown head gasket or bad valves.

My car cuts off and thick white smoke

You have a cracked head,or a blown head gasket,due to over heating,or the gasket under the head has rotted out.

Overheats while driving stops when still cuts off

What EEC IV engine control trouble codes do you have? sounds like you have a mechanical problem, run a cylinder compession test and have the engine tested for a blown cylinder head gasket.
