Benn driving it around urban for about a week now no problem but a similar problem as above came about today. Please help...

Sounds like you have some bubbles trapped in there somewhere. try bleeding the cooling system by letting the car idle with the radiator cap off. when the engine reaches operating temp the thermostat should open, and you should see a drop in coolant level. top it off, and wait to see if more air bubble come up, and repeat until you;re satisfied that there are no more air bubbles left.

1.6 fsi passat,pinging


pinging may not be the result of the type of fuel, but sometimes in the combustion chanber, carbon can build up and act as an insulator, so when the vehicle warms up, the carbon deposit retains the heat and ignites the fresh air fuel mixture before the spark plug is supposed to ignite it. check your spark plugs and if you have a scope try and look into the chamber (when the piston is all the way down of course). You can buy engine decarbonizers, but the cheapest one is water (free). you can't add a lot, just use a vaccum line to **** up a tiny bit of water at a time, also make sure the egine is running above idle

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

White fumes in the engine oil filler cap


Sounds like you have blown the head gasket when it got overheated.. The white stuff in the oil cap is emusified oil, a bit like mayonnaise.
You will almost certainly need to replace head gasket and service the cylinder head.
